Rev. Al Sharpton is at the forefront of yet another movement. The Civil Rights activist is calling for a boycott of the upcoming Academy Awards since there are no African American actors nominated for the coveted golden statue.
“Hollywood is like the Rocky Mountains, the higher up you get the whiter it gets and this year’s Academy Awards will be yet another Rocky Mountain Oscars,” said Sharpton in a statement.
“Yet again, deserving black actors and directors were ignored by the Academy — which reinforces the fact that there are few if any blacks with real power in Hollywood.”
