The Oscars May Not Be #OscarsSoWhite This Year- New Class Announced

I’m sure we all remember the hashtag #Oscarssowhite trending. I’m sure you remember my girl Jada Pickett Smith “boycotting” the Oscars but not really “boycotting” them. More like not going and telling all her friends they shouldn’t go. Well, the Oscars may have received the message loud and clear. The class looks a lot more diverse than last year’s class.

Hope the awards this year are a little more diverse and give actors and actress of all colors and backgrounds an opportunity to shine within their chosen field.
