Oscar Nominations Announced and Finally, White People Are Represented This Year

Hello Oscars 2016. Now that another year of the Golden Globes and Ricky Gervais disappear into the history books, the Academy Awards take their place. How many terrorist attack tributes will their be? Over/under pegged at 2.

The nominations were announced this morning. We could talk about who the Academy left out. There’s a bigger story this year though. Finally, white people have proved they have just as much talent and skills, and most importantly, opportunity, as any other minority in Hollywood today.

No longer will they will relegated to making B-movies that go straight to video or that glorify the violence in their neighborhoods. We won’t have to see the same five white people mentioned for any role of substance. Hollywood truly is colorblind now because white people have been nominated in every major acting category and zero, I repeat, zero non-white actors have been nominated. #OscarsSoWhite.
