Kanye West is hitting the road once again!
Calling into Steve Harvey's morning radio show, Yeezy said:

We can't say we're shocked!
On Saturday, the actors from Spotlight won the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award at the SAG Awards. AH-Mazing!
We had a feeling the crew from the highly talked about film would win, because they just recently took the Critics' Choice Award for the same prize. Well done!
Still, the competition was pretty tight this year since the group beat out the casts from Beast of No Nation, The Big Short, Straight Outta Compton, and Trumbo. Whoa!
Not to mention, Mark Ruffalo and Michael Keaton's speech on behalf of their castmates was pretty phenomenal too. Be sure to ch-ch-check it out for yourself (above)!

Thankfully, the backlash sparked a response from the Academy saying they will double the number of women and "diverse" members by 2020.
While Whoopi Goldberg already talked about the issue on The View last week, the 60-year-old actress talked a bit about the Academy's recent response on her show yesterday, as well as claims of them being "racist."
After mulling it over, the 48-year-old — who is nominated himself for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Spotlight — revealed he plans to go to the award show, but he still supports the boycott movement!
On Thursday, Ruffalo posted a series of tweets about his decision, highlighting he would attend the show in support of a different cause:
Even though the Avengers star will attend the event, he hopes the Oscar Ban movement would star the conversation on much larger issues at hand, like the #BlackLivesMatter movement:
I do support the Oscar Ban movement's position that the nominations do not reflect the diversity of our community.
— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) January 21, 2016
The Oscar Ban movement reflects a larger discussion about racism in the criminal justice system.
— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) January 21, 2016
We totally understand the actor's decision!
Spotlight was an important film that shines a light on a very different problem, and it's of the utmost important to him that victims of sexual abuse be represented, even while another controversy is going on.
What do YOU think?

The honor! The glory! The snubs! (Don't worry, we'll get to that…)
Early Thursday morning, The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed the most prestigious list in Hollywood — this year's nominations for the Oscars!
While there were plenty of great movies and performances this year, not everyone can get a nomination — though a certain Titanic seemed to make the cut!
Ch-ch-check out all of this year's nominees (below)!
The Tonight Show host took a real risk digging up the Spotlight star's possibly oldest, definitely most embarrassing acting work — in a totally tubular '80s ad for Clearasil!
OMG, look at that baby face! We are swooning, ersatz zits and all!
Luckily, the Hulk has a pretty chill disposition IRL, so he laughed it off. On the outside…
Ch-ch-check out the awkward clip with the full commercial (below)!
Time for more announcements!
Award season is here which means we get to find out what 2015 movies will be nominated!
The list is mostly what you'd expect, but there were a couple major surprises regarding snubs as neither Jennifer Lawrence or Tom Hanks were nominated. In fact, David O. Russell's Joy wasn't nominated at all!
Another arguable snub was British actress Charlotte Rampling who didn't receive a nomination for her romantic drama 45 Years despite there being buzz that she could land an Oscar nod this year!
Perhaps one of the most puzzling omissions though was Spectre which didn't receive a SINGLE nomination! The reason this is a bit of a shock is the previous Bond film, Skyfall, not only won Outstanding British Film in 2013, but it was nominated for eight total awards!
Ch-ch-check out the full list of nominees (below) and let us know who you think was snubbed!
The nominees for the Critics' Choice Awards were just announce and we're pretty happy with the results!
George Miller and Tom Hardy's Mad Max: Fury Road ended up being the biggest winner as it leads the list with 13 nominations which include Best Picture, Best Actress for Charlize Theron and Best Director for Miller.
After taking the Online Film Critics Society Awards by storm this weekend, the Oscars buzz for the flick is as loud as a flamethrowing guitar!
But don't worry, if you are a fan of Carol, The Martian, or The Revenant, then you'll be pretty pleased as each of those flicks nabbed nine nominations!
This year Fargo ended up landing the top spot in television with eight and The Leftovers and Transparent are both right behind the FX drama with six.
But the best and most surprising nominations were You're the Worst, The Knick, and the much deserved Best Drama Series nomination for Rectify!
Ch-ch-check out the full list of nominees (below) and let us know if you agree!
