Oscars So Free: All Major Movie Nominees Leaked On Pirate Sites

HOLLYWOOD, CA- From Janet Hubert (the original 'Aunt Viv') to George Clooney, Hollywood is speaking out and tweeting their opinions  on the #OscarsSoWhite controversy.

But, the threats to boycott the big show may not be Hollywood's only drama. I'm talking about the other "B" word: Bootleg!

TorrentFreak claims all 37 movies nominated for Oscars this year are currently being illegally downloaded or streamed from pirate sites.

But, here's the plot twist: more than half of these pirated flicks have reportedly been leaked by movie screeners--the people who get a free DVD in the mail, so they can post a review on sites like IMDb or Rotten Tomatoes.

So movie execs can't count on Oscar nominations to increase their box- office sales because people are already watching movies like "The Martian" or "The Revenant" at home, free.

Looks like minority actors and actresses aren't the only ones getting snubbed in Hollywood!
