It's controversy (not really) time again: Only White Actors Were Nominated For Oscars And People Are Understandably Pissed (Would have also posted the tweets that several people made in response to this, but I'm still clueless as to how you copy and paste a tweet. But you can always click on the link I provided if you want to read them.) The irony of those pulling out the race card with this is that if the roles were reversed and you had a bunch of people asking, "Where the white people at?", those folks would be the ones that were considered 'racist.' I didn't watch many films from last year, so I don't know whether or not there's any strong performances from black actors/actresses that are being ignored, but there's no cosmic rule in the universe that says the top selected nominees have to be racially diverse.
