Jada Pinkett Smith is thrilled to see the Academy stepping up!
Cheryl Boone Isaacs explained that she's "heartbroken and frustrated," but is actually planning on making changes that will hopefully prevent this from happening in the future!
In fact, the Academy head even explained that she'll be trying to switch up the elite group's membership, so that diversity is better represented.
And the Gotham alum, who announced she'll be boycotting the high-profile awards show, is loving Cheryl's new efforts!
The 44-year-old took to Facebook to respond to her statement, saying:
While Whoopi Goldberg made no mistake in saying how she was upset about the Oscars' lack of minority nominees, she won't be boycotting the award show out of respect to its host!
Speaking on Tuesday's The View, the Oscar-winner said:
After the Oscars revealed all 20 of its actor nominees were white, everyone from Jada Pinkett Smith to David Oyelowo to even the President of The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences have voiced frustrations about the lack of diversity in the prestigious institution.
Now, George Clooney, the unofficial mayor of Hollywood, is adding his two cents — and he agrees that "we are moving in the wrong direction."
Speaking to Variety, the Oscar winner said he thinks the lack of minority nominees is largely due to the little options minority actors have playing roles in "quality" films!
However, instead of focusing on the awards show controversy in her post, the 46-year-old targeted rumors about the longtime loves' sexualities!
The actress even went so far as to say the precious pair's marriage is all a sham, claiming:
The heat is on for Chris Rock!
Rock himself took a shot at the award show over the weekend, but joking about it isn't enough for some.
Rapper 50 Cent is now specifically calling on Rock to step away from the ceremony!
Aunt Viv throwing some shade!
Well Janet Hubert, who played the original Aunt Viv from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air but was not liked by the cast and ultimately fired and replaced, felt she needed to share her thoughts on the issue by calling Jada out!
Janet, who has been known to get into it with Will Smith in the past, took to YouTube to share a video where she rants about how it's ridiculous for Pinkett Smith to ask people to boycott the Oscars saying:
"The second thing, girlfriend, there's a lot of s— going on in the world that you all don't seem to recognize. People are dying. Our boys are being shot left and right. People are starving. People are trying to pay bills. And you're talking about some motherf—ing actors and Oscars. It just ain't that deep."
Ch-ch-check out the rest of Hubert's response (below) as she shades Will's wife pretty hard!
This is sure to be inneresting.
As we previously reported, many A-listers were outraged after it was revealed that all 20 of the acting nominees were white. Oof!
In response to the backlash, President Cheryl Boone Isaacs stated:
