Oscars: Acting Nominees All White(!!!)
For only the second time in nearly two decades, the 20 Academy Awards acting nominations went to a group made up entirely of white actors and actresses.(!!!)
Among the notable snubs was David Oyelowo, who received praise for his turn as the late Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Selma.
In 2011, the 20 nominees also was entirely white.(!!!) Before that, one has to go back to 1998 for an entirely all-white acting group.(!!!)
The all-white(!!!) nominees list comes at time when Hollywood is fielding criticism for not doing enough to promote diversity in filmmaking(!!!)
