Jada Pinkett-Smith Boycott Influences Oscar Nominations?
Last year actress Jada Pinkett-Smith organized an Academy Awards boycott to protest the lack of diversity in the nominations [click here if you missed that].
Looks like the boycott was a success...
This year three Black led films, Fences, Hidden Figures and Moonlight, have all snagged nominations for Best Picture as well as Best Adapted Screenplay.
Also Octavia Spencer, Viola Davis and Naomie Harris have been nominated for Best Supporting Actress and Mahershala Ali has been nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category.
