The cast of Straight Outta Compton wasn’t even invited to the Oscars this year! The only people invited to represent the film are two writers who were nominated for screen play. Not even executive producer Ice Cube!
According to TMZ,
“Our ‘Compton’ sources say none of the cast received an invitation — mirroring the nomination process. We’re told the only people invited are the 2 writers nominated for best original screenplay.
It’s unclear if this is really a diss. There’s no public list of Academy members, so it’s hard to say what the Academy’s criteria are for extending an invite. We’ve reached out, but no word back yet.
We’re told Ice Cube WILL attend the SAG Awards and NAACP Image Awards … which both nominated ‘Compton’ in multiple categories.”
