Boycott Rumors for the 88th Annual Academy Awards

So far, only Jada Pinkett Smith, wife of Will Smith, and director Spike Lee are the ones who have spoken that they are not going to attend the awards night. It is because for the second straight year, Oscars 2016 nominees are all white, all the 20 acting nominations went to white actors. Jada Pinkett Smith and Lee may be the only ones who will boycott the Academy Awards, but there are also other celebrities who have shared their thoughts about the issue like Will Smith, George Clooney, Mark Ruffalo, Tyrese Gibson, 50 Cent, Ice Cube, and many more. All of them are not happy with the ?lack of diversity? in this year?s Oscars.

Oscars 2016 will take place on February 28 at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. It will start at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Fans can watch the 88th Academy Awards through these links: Oscar.Go, and Hulkusc
