Someone had to say it!

Idris Elba is killing it so far at the 2016 SAG Awards!

The actor took home TWO awards for his roles in Beasts of No Nation and Luther!

But when he got out on stage for a third time to introduce the Beasts of No Nation's ensemble nomination — he decided to throw some subtle, yet classy shade at the Oscars!

Right after Viola Davis won the trophy for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series, Elba went on stage with his costar Abraham Attah and called out the Academy's all-white acting nominees! He said:

"Ladies and gentleman, welcome to diverse TV."

AH-Mazing!

After getting majorly snubbed for Best Supporting Actor with the Oscar nominees this year, we don't think there's anyone better to make that dig!

What did YOU think of the shady moment?

| Filed under: TV NewsAwardzSAG AwardsViola DavisHow To Get Away With Murder

YAS KWEEN!

On Saturday, Viola Davis won the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series award at the SAG Awards for her role in How to Get Away with Murder. AH-Mazing!

We aren't too shocked that Miz Davis took home the prize at the Hollywood event since she won this year's Emmy Award. LOVES it!

However, the competition was certainly steep this year as the 50-year-old was up against Claire Danes in Homeland, Julianna Margulies in The Good Wife, Maggie Smith in Downton Abbey, and Robin Wright in House of Cards. Keep doing you, girl!

Ch-ch-check out her speech for yourself (above)!

Viola Davis Won't Be At The Oscars — But Is She Boycotting?! Find Out What She Says The Real Issue Is!

| Filed under: Film FlickersAwardzOscarsViola DavisControversy

See where Viola stands on the controversy.

Viola Davis is another celebrity who won't be at the Oscars this year. But it's not because she's boycotting!

On Wednesday, the 50-year-old admitted at Elle's 6th Annual Women in Television Dinner that she has other plans for Hollywood's big night, telling Entertainment Tonight:

"'Cause I'm gonna be on vacation."

However, just because the acclaimed actress isn't officially boycotting the ceremony, that doesn't mean she's okay with the lack of diversity in this year's nominations.

But, the gorgeous gal explained that the awards show itself isn't the actual issue at hand, saying:

"The problem is not with the Oscars. The problem is with the Hollywood movie-making system."

The How To Get Away With Murder star elaborated:

"How many black films are being produced every year? How are they being distributed? The films that are being made, are the big-time producers thinking outside of the box in terms of how to cast the role? Can you cast a black woman in that role? Can you cast a black man in that role?"

The fierce female vented that there just aren't enough opportunities available and that's the real root of the problem, dishing:

"The problem isn't even our pay. You could probably line up all the A-List black actresses out there [and] they probably don't make what one A-List white woman makes in one film. That's the problem. You can change the Academy, but if there are no black films being produced, what is there to vote for?"

But despite all the passionate protests from her colleagues, the lovely lady isn't pressuring host Chris Rock to bail on his duties, adding:

"Like I said, the Oscars are not really the issue. It's a symptom of a much greater disease. But if he does [host], I hope he takes it as an opportunity to make a statement, a social statement about change. It's 2016."

We think that would be a good way for him to keep his commitment and still make a statement! What do U think, Perezcious readers?
