POLL: Will You Boycott This Year’s Oscars?

Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett-Smith announced on Monday their plans to boycott the 2016 Academy Awards, citing the lack of diversity in the four acting categories.

“How is it possible for the second consecutive year all 20 contenders under the actor category are white?” Lee asked.

Pinkett Smith, whose husband Will Smith was among this year’s biggest snubs for his performance in “Concussion,” said, “We can no longer beg for the love, acknowledgment or respect of any group.”

Which begs the question: will TV audiences and other entertainers boycott as well? We’d like to hear from you:
