List Of 2016 Oscar Nominees Sparks #OscarsSoWhite Trending Topic

Rucuss staffJanuary 15, 2016

The 2016 Oscar nominations were announced and it was noticeable that a few black actors were missing from the nominations.

For Best Motion Picture or Best Actor/Actress in a lead role, a few movies that most people thought were shoe-ins like Straight Outta Compton, Creed, or Dope were not nominated but instead given nods in categories like Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor.

Chris Rock will be the host for the night and there is speculation that he might address the lack of diversity at the Oscars in his monologue. Check out a few tweets with the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite.
