'Straight Outta Compton' Shut Out of Oscars — Except for 2 White People


0114-straight-outta-compton-01

In a stunning move, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences turned thumbs down to “Straight Outta Compton” — the only nom it got were the screenwriters — a white guy and a white woman.

It’s amazing … not only did the movie get overlooked for best pic, only 8 movies were nominated and there could have been 10, but clearly they didn’t think the biopic passed muster. 

The Academy was under a microscope for this one … a lot of people thought this would clearly show if they were bias against black movies.

Others have beef … ‘Stars Wars‘ didn’t get nominated for best pic, nor did J.J. Abrams for best director.
