Selma only scored two nods during today’s Academy Awards nominations announcement, leaving the film’s director Ava DuVernay and star David Oyelowoout in the cold. Should we be surprised?

This year’s Academy Awards will be the whitest since 1998, with white nominees making up 94 percent of the pool of Oscar hopefuls, according to The Daily Beast.
The people of Twitter wanted to make it known just how white this year’s Academy Awards will be. And, of course, the trending topic #OscarsSoWhite became a thing.
