#OscarsSoWhite: New Nominations STILL Lack Diversity

HOLLYWOOD -- Oscar noms are out, and if this list is giving you déjà vu, you aren't alone.

Similar to last year, and the year before that, coincidence or not, the Academy left many minorities out of the four acting categories, causing the internet to re-use last year's trending #oscarssowhite.

So, who got snubbed?

How about newcomer Jason Mitchell for his portrayal of rapper Eazy-E in Straight Outta Compton, Idris Elba for Beasts of No Notion, Samuel L. Jackson for The Hateful Eight, or Will Smith for Concussion?

Well, this isn't the first or second time the Academy has been accused of lack of diversity.

The Academy's 7,000 members who vote for the Oscars are mostly older, white dudes, often facing criticism that they are “out of touch.”

But could there be a bigger underlying problem?

Maybe Hollywood itself is out of touch. The amount of leading roles offered to minorities and women in Tinseltown is significantly less than white men.

So while we all hope Leo finally takes home that long awaited Oscar for his performance in The Revenant, this latest list begs the question: should Oscar gold be traded for Oscar white?
