For the second consecutive year, the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences failed to nominate a single non-white person in any acting category. People both inside and outside the organization have decried this, citing many outstanding performances by non-white actors last year.
Benicio del Toro turned in a downright scary performance as a hitman who also managed to be heartbreaking in “Sicario.”
And Jason Mitchell outright stole “Straight Outta Compton” as the smooth-talking, big-dreaming Eazy-E. The Academy has a history of recognizing scene-stealing debut roles, yet neglected Mitchell.
