Published on January 20th, 2016

50 posted a message for Rock on Instagram. The star of the movies Get Rich or Die Tryin’, All Things Fall Apart, and Southpaw wrote, “Chris please do not do the Oscars awards. You mean a lot man, don’t do it. Please.”

Besides the lack of nominations for non-white actors and actresses, the Academy has also faced criticism for not giving nods to any of the African-Americans involved in Creed or Straight Outta Compton. Both films featured black actors in the main roles and were directed by black filmmakers.

Creed’s only nomination was for Sylvester Stallone in the Best Supporting Actor category.Straight Outta Compton’s only nomination was for the white screenwriters in the Best Original Screenplay category. There were also questions as to why Idris Elba did not get nominated for Beasts of No Nation and Will Smith did not get nominated for Concussion.
