The hashtag #OscarsSoWhite has returned to Twitter after the 2016 Academy Award Nominations were announced and included no people of color in any of the acting categories. Many of the reactions were because Sylvester Stallone was nominated for Creed while Michael B. Jordan did not receive a nod. Additionally, Straight Outta Compton only received a nomination for best original screenplay, and the writers the film are all white. Here are some of the best reactions with the hashtag on Twitter:
There is going to be a Creed sequel, so perhaps Michael B. Jordan will have another shot at an Academy Awards nomination. That is, of course, unless the quality of Creed sequels matches those of later Rocky sequels, in which case Jordan will need to look for an award-winning role elsewhere.
