This is Sylvester Stallone‘s first Oscar nomination in nearly 40 years — and the 69-year-old legend has considered watching the big show from home, since Creed director Ryan Coogler and star Michael B. Jordan were not nominated, and will be boycotting as part of the #OscarsSoWhite movement. During a luncheon for the nominees on Feb. 8 at the Beverly Hilton in LA, he revealed the surprising conversation he had with the Creed family.
Seriously? In all of the acting categories for this year’s Oscar nominations, not a single actor of color was nominated. Michael B. Jordan, Idris Elba, Will Smith and the entire Straight Outta Compton cast wowed fans and critics, but the Academy shut these black actors and other actors of color out completely.
