No Actors of Color Nominated for Academy Awards

Hollywood, January 17 (RHC)-- The 2015 Oscars nominations were announced Thursday and for the first time in almost two decades, all 20 acting nominees are white.

The dramatic civil rights film "Selma" was nominated for just two awards — best film and best original song. The Twitter hashtag #OscarsSoWhite began trending soon after the nominees were announced.

A 2012 survey conducted by the Los Angeles Times found Oscar voters are 94 percent white, 76 percent male, and the average age is 63 years old.

Meanwhile, Laura Poitras’ film CitizenFour about Edward Snowden was nominated for best documentary.
