Remember when everyone on social media was in an uproar over the 2015 Oscar nominations being filled with nothing but white people? Well apparently the Academy still hasn’t learned their lesson, as the 2016 Oscar nominations have just been announced and they’re still looking pretty damn white. What makes this year’s colorless nominations even more upsetting is the fact that there were so many amazing performances from actors of color to choose from! Tangerine, Straight Outta Compton and Creed, anyone? Point blank: The damage has been done and people are even more upset than last year…and understandably so!
#OscarsSoWhite is trending for the second year in a row. Will the Academy ever get it right?
