Well, it’s either going to be ‘Must Watch’ or ‘Must NOT Watch’ TV when the Oscar’s air this Sunday night. Many   people are outraged about the lack of diversity.  For the second year in a row, there are no actors of color nominated in any of the four acting categories.  People took their opinions to Twitter, posting with the hashtag #OscarsSoWhite.  Some celebrities, like Jada Pinkett Smith, have announced that they won’t be attending the ceremony as a form of protest.  When the outrage began, many people called for Chris Rock to join the boycott and step down as host for the Oscars.  The comedian announced that he will definitely be hosting, and he and his writing team re-wrote the whole show to touch on the lack of diversity.  He will host the event on Sunday, February 28th.  ABC will air the ceremony live starting at 7:00 pm Eastern, 4:00 pm Pacific.
