WOW! This is bad… like REALLY bad…
All 20 nominees in the Best Actor/Actress and Supporting Actor/Actresses are white, something that hasn’t happened since 1998!
Add to Selma director Ava DuVernay‘s snub the fact that Gillian Flynn didn’t get the nod for adapting her novel Gone Girl, and that means no female directors or screenwriters were nominated either!
The results have, understandably been blowing up on the Twitterverse with the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite and some of the responses are absolutely brilliant!
Ch-ch-check out some of the tweets about the lack of diversity (below)!!!
The noms are 98% white. Like the most obviously white group in a long time. I’m PISSED about the David Oyelowo snub.

See what we mean?!
What do YOU think about the lack of diversity in the Oscar nominations?
