[video: Chris Rock explains how racism (white supremacy) work]

 

The nominations for the 88th Academy Awards were announced! Not one Black actor were nominated. Is this an example of white supremacy in full effect or was there no performances deserving? How about behind the lens – director, producer, etc – not worthy of a nomination? In the last few years there has been an increase of people of color invited to join the academy however,  it is a known fact, the majority of voting academy members are still made up of white males over the age of 60.

Stay tune for CINEMATIQ Reel Talk as we analyze how the Oscar system work and critique the films nominated vs the films that maybe should have been nominated with Black leads/supporting, producer and directing roles . In the meantime, check out the full list of nominations below.

This year host of the Oscars will be Chris Rock!
