Snubs Of The 2016 Oscars: Sorkin, Scott And 'Straight Outta Compton'
The 88th Annual Academy Award nominations did not include a single acting nomination for a person of color.By Cody LaGrow | January 14, 2016
Oscar nomination season — that time of year when a potential award for one is a somber snub for the other.
Ridley Scott, director of "The Martian," is probably feeling a little left out of planet Hollywood. He did not get a Best Director nod, though "The Martian" is up for Best Picture and Matt Damon is up for Best Actor. Aaron Sorkin was also snubbed for his work on "Steve Jobs," as was Quentin Tarantino for his work on "The Hateful Eight."
"Carol" missed the mark for a Best Picture nomination, as did "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
