Will Smith (4)      Oscars (2)      Racism (2)      Boycott (1)      Equality (1)     
Will Smith and his wife, fellow actor Jada Pinkett Smith, along with directors Spike Lee and Michael Moore are not going to the Oscars this year in protest at the lack of diversity in the nominees. There were no non white nominees in 20 acting categories for the second year in a row. Pinkett Smith suggests that it may be time for black community to pull away from the mainstream award system and create new programs for themselves.

What do you think of this protest? Should there be more people of colour nominated for Oscars?

While I think nominations and awards should go to those who most deserve them, to have no nominees who are not white in twenty acting categories for the second year in a row is pretty outrageous.

Depends on talent.
Read what Charlotte Rampling had to say.
Pretty spot on, I'd imagine.
