The one-man boycott is still on for Spike Lee!
Of course, Lee had previously indicated he was going to skip the Academy Awards — and even now that the Academy has made massive changes to their membership in a bid to diversify, that's not enough for the famed filmmaker.
Speaking to reporters over the weekend, Lee said:
Tell it like it is, Danny DeVito!
The actor spoke to the Associated Press while he was at the Sundance Film Festival on Saturday, and he got very candid about how much of a problem he thought it was for the Oscars to fail to nominate people of color for their awards this year.
DeVito, joined by fellow actors Don Cheadle and Sam Neill, can be seen (below) very openly talking about race in America, and where the Academy Awards got it wrong:
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!
And we thought WE were the most excited!
There are a ton of reasons to be excited about Captain America: Civil War — heck, it's basically Avengers 2.5 since it stars not only Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. but also Scarlett Johansson, Elizabeth Olsen, Jeremy Renner, Don Cheadle, Sebastian Stan, Paul Rudd, and newcomers Chadwick Boseman and Martin Freeman.
Oh yeah, and it introduces Tom Holland as a little known character that goes by the name Spider-Man!
We've been HIGHLY anticipating the wall crawler's return to the big screen — and in the Marvel Cinematic Universe no less — since the lackluster sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man. While we won't get a full standalone movie from Sony until the summer of 2017, Cap 3 will introduce the newest version of the web slinger!
But now we have more reason to anticipate the film as the young star recently gushed to The Belfast Telegraph saying:
The wait is over, Marvel fans!
And just as many guessed, it was indeed the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War!
In the first ever footage released, Captain America is forced to fight his fellow Avengers — including Iron Man — over the fate of his friend Bucky!
Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above) to get your first look at Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Elizabeth Olsen, and Jeremy Renner in the fight of the century — oh, and did we mention Black Panther??!
Civil War hits theaters May 6, 2016.
