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.
