Will Smith & President Barack Obama Add Even More To The #OscarsSoWhite Conversation — See What They Said!

no title

The debate continues.

The Oscars probably didn't know what they were getting themselves into two weeks ago when they went ahead and failed to nominate a single person of color for any of the acting categories.

We've heard plenty of opinions from both sides — from Jada Pinkett Smith saying she's boycotting this year's ceremony to Cuba Gooding, Jr. defending the awards — but now we're hearing even more high-profile takes on the controversy.

After his initial interview where he confirmed he'd also be skipping the show, Will Smith has gone further saying what Hollywood is doing is "almost criminal!"

But he's not alone — President Barack Obama also weighed in on the topic, saying he believes it's "just an expression of this broader issue."

We're just happy the conversation is persisting and that change has actually started happening!

Ch-ch-check out both Will Smith and President Barack Obama's conversations on race (below)!!!

As you're surely aware, the Academy Awards came under fire over the last week after it was revealed that almost all of the nominees this year are white… including every single acting category!
