When the Oscar nominations came out, many were shocked that all Academy Awards acting nominations went only to white actors and actresses.
Of course, all the best movie nominations went to movies that no one has seen or heard of.
But, it was the all white thing that is sticking in the craw of MSNBC host Al Sharpton. And he is thinking about doing something.
The outspoken civil rights activist said Thursday that it was “appallingly insulting in the year of 2015" that the 20 Academy Awards acting nominations went only to white actors and actresses.
“In the time of Staten Island and Ferguson, to have one of the most shutout Oscar nights in recent memory is something that is incongruous," Sharpton told The Daily News.
Sharpton says he will take time out of paying his back taxes to meet next week with allies and colleagues to discuss “potential actions” before or during the nationally televised Feb. 22 award ceremony.
In other words, Sharpton has to see how much face time he can get?
