This year’s Oscars are already being dubbed the “whitest” in nearly two decades. But this is nothing new. Last year, the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite went viral and expect that to happen again. Will Smith was snubbed for his critically acclaimed performance in Concussion and so was Idris Elba for his dynamic performance in Beasts of No Nation. This isn’t the first time Black talent has been snubbed by the Academy. Here’s a rundown of African-Americans overlooked by the Oscars. (Photos from left: Columbia Pictures Industries, Red Crown Productions / Participant Media / Come What May Productions / Mammoth Entertainment / New Balloon)
