Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith Boycotting 2016 Oscars, Chris Rock Calls Out Academy for ‘White BET Awards’

For the second year in a row, every actor nominated in all four acting categories for the Academy Awards is a white person. All 20 nominees for Best Actor and Actress and Best Supporting Actor and Actress are white people, reigniting the Twitter hashtag #OscarsSoWhite. And while many of us are comfortable in our power to merely comment via social media, there are a couple of strong voices who are fed up and ready to do something about it: director Spike Lee and actor Jada Pinkett-Smith have announced plans to boycott the Oscars this year, while the host of the 2016 awards himself has called the Academy out for their persistent negligence to nominate people of color.

Kanye West & Jay Z Visit Kanye’s Childhood Home [VIDEO]

If you've ever been in a room of people who all think "Kanye West sucks" ...  except for like, one guy. Well, I can openly admit, I am that "one guy." Does excellence justify ignorance? What about arrogance? Nah, but, even Kanye knows he's an a**hole, and even though he couldn't care less what you think of him, he probably agrees with you on the reasons why you roll your eyes at any mention of his name.
