Oh no they didnt!
Straight Outta Compton, which is one of the best movies last year, was not only shut out of the Oscars. But the cast of the movie were not even invited to the awards show. According to the Academy, only people who get nominated get an invite and each studio gets a limited ticket. So the crew one of the highest grossing movie of 2015 don’t fall in that category.
This new information has led to backlash on twitter with the hashtag #MakeAMovieWhiter. Where folks turn movies white so has to get them on the Oscars.
