The Academy Snubs Blacks on MLK Jr Birthday

On Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, the Academy snubbed blacks.

In the whitest Oscar list in years, Academy voters failed to nominate a single African-American actor in the four performance categories — and also handed the historic Civil Rights film “Selma” just two nominations overall.

It was only the second time since 2000 that no black actors or actresses were nominated.
