Kerry Washington and Quincy Jones Added to Oscars Cast


The Jada Pinkett-Smith led Oscars diversity boycott continues to crumble as Kerry Washington and Quincy Jones both agree to participate in the 2016 Academy Awards Show ...

It was announced yesterday that Kerry Washington and Quincy Jones had been added to this years Oscar presenters list along with Whoopi Goldberg, Kevin Hart, Benicio del Toro and Pharrell Williams. Indian-born actor Priyanka Chopra, and South Korea’s Byung-hun Lee are also presenting.

Last month Jada Pinkett-Smith called for an Oscar boycott over the lack of diversity in nominations [click here if you missed that].

Directer Spike Lee, actor Tyrese Gibson and rapper 50 Cent have all vowed not to attend or watch this years award show.

The Academy Awards, hosted by comedian Chris Rock, airs live on ABC Feb. 28th.

Like Aunt Viv said, NOBODY CARES. People prefer to work than to not work. 50 Cent and Tyrese arent relevant so who cares about them boycotting and Spike boycotts everything so that's hardly newsworthy lol

All in all, this was a bad look on Jada's part. I bet Will is plotting behind the scenes.

WHY Boycott? Why would you stay away from something you want changed? You stay and HELP facilitate change. She can suggest a boycott because her husband is sitting on $250 mil. So... she NEVER has to work.

Oscars and the academy are absolute jokes. Just tune in for Rocks monologue for laughs then change the channel.

I don't watch regardless because who really wants to watch a circle jerk of celebrities masquerading as an awards show?
