Jada Pinkett SmithJada Pinkett Smith has spoken out after Chris Rock’s Oscar joke.

“Jada [Pinkett Smith] said she’s not coming,” Rock said during the February 28th ceremony. “I was like, ‘Isn’t she on a TV show?’ Jada’s going to boycott The Oscars? Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna’s panties. I wasn’t invited!”

Will Smith Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences Jada Pinkett-Smith Spike Lee

Will Smith has spoken some more about his decision to join his wife Jada Pinkett Smith in boycotting this year’s Oscars ceremony, saying that he wants to be “part of the solution” to the diversity problem in the movie industry.

Smith is currently in Britain promoting Concussion, the movie which had seen him tipped to be in contention for the Best Actor trophy before the nominations were announced and he was left off the five-strong shortlist. For the second year in a row, all 20 acting nominations were taken up by white actors, much to the ire of social media.

The Academy Awards Boycott: Both Sides Of The Debate


Academy Of Motion Pictures And Sciences Chris Rock Will Smith Jada Pinkett-Smith

This year's Academy Awards season is turning out to be a pretty intense ride, with the uproar over the nominations' lack of cultural diversity causing a division in the entertainment world. While some people are saying that they're planning to boycott the ceremony when it was revealed that not one black actor or director had been nominated, others are saying that the situation has been blown way out of proportion.

Jada Pinkett-Smith and Will SmithJada Pinkett-Smith and Will Smith are skipping the 2016 Oscars ceremony

So what exactly is the debate? This is year is the second year in a row that not one person of colour has been nominated for an Oscar in the major categories. It's not even that it hasn't been an option, especially when you look at the Golden Globe nominations and the calibre of movies featuring black lead actors in 2015 like 'Chi-Raq', 'Creed', 'Beasts of No Nation', 'Straight Outta Compton' and 'Concussion'. Last year, admittedly, did see fewer options. However, 'Selma' was one of the biggest movies of the year (and probably one of the most important in this decade) but still only managed to scoop a Best Original Song prize. Justin Simien's 'Dear White People' wasn't recognised at all and nor was Denzel Washington's 'The Equalizer'.
