This actually makes a lot of sense.

It's pretty much impossible to have avoided hearing about the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, so we're not surprised that an issue about race in movies was a hot topic even at a TV show premiere.

The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story had its El Lay premiere Wednesday night, and Oscar-winner/O.J. Simpson himself Cuba Gooding, Jr. was not shy about his opinions on the Academy's nominations process.

Sarah Paulson, who plays prosecutor Marcia Clark, was impeccable in a ruby-colored Stella McCartney illusion dress with a silver belt cinched around her waist.

Connie Britton, who plays Nicole Brown Simpson's friend Faye Resnick, followed Sarah's lead and chose a gemstone-hued sapphire shift dress with cut-out neckline.
