We're learning more about this terrible tragedy.
Over the years, there's been plenty of talk that black nominees being left out of the Oscars is a trend.
Here's what Whoopi had to say about it:
"I don't know how it gets better. I think we're all right."
"This idea that there's something wrong, something missing, seemed very inaccurate to me, and it was, and there are a lot of people in that small little world of black Oscar folks. And, yeah. If you're going to talk about it, then talk about it. Don't sort of talk around it. That was my point."
As always, Whoopi is not afraid to speak her mind. We're thinking lots of people will agree with her, but we also have a feeling there are LOTS of folks who will NOT agree. Definitely can be touchy subject matter.
What do U think? Is it a trend for black nominees to be missing at the Oscars?
