The 2016 Oscar Nominations Are In
Earlier this morning, nominees for this year's most prestigious awards in the film industry, the 88th Academy Awards, were announced.
Straight Outta Compton was thee breakout movie of 2015 and one of the highest grossing music biopics of all time, and somehow, it managed to get snubbed at this year's Oscars.
Remember last year, #OscarsSoWhite trended on Twitter? Well, people are pissed that Straight Outta Compton's only nomination managed to go to white people.

Also nominated for an Oscar was R&B singer The Weeknd for his sexy song "Earned It" from Fifty Shades of Grey which earned him a nod for 'Original Song.'
