Actor Hill Harper on mouthing off to J.Lo in "The Boy Next Door"

Hollywood celebrates MLK Jr.'s birthday by snubbing all the people who made a movie about him

For the second time in almost two decades, all 20 Academy Awards nominations are comprised entirely of white actors and actresses. The list — announced just in time for MLK Jr.’s birthday — comes at a time when Hollywood is fielding criticisms for simply not doing enough to promote diversity in film making.

Alicia Menendez chats about two of the most notable Oscar snubs this year – David Oyelowo, for his portrayal of the late Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., in “Selma,” and Ava DuVernay, who directed the film. If nominated, DuVernay would have been the first African-American female nominated in this category.
