This years Oscars were basically the same as they ever were, but each year people are finding different things to complain about. Apparently this year the complaints were legitimate with the so obvious lack of diversity…
The 20 lead and supporting actor nominees were all white, which is the second time this has happened in 20 years. It immediately sparked the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite, with people voicing their criticism of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
Twitter, of course, was on fire.
I’m not surprised, we only get recognition for playing our “role” as the help, the slave, the butler, and the mistress #OscarsSoWhite
