The 2017 awards ceremony will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, taking over for Chris Rock, who hosted the ceremony last year amid the #OscarsSoWhite backlash. And, it seems Hollywood has finally taken steps in correcting its lack of diversity as the nominees for many of the major categories include actors of color.
Breaking the routine, this years Oscars nominees include all the great black Actors and Actresses who managed to nail their performances.
Through the nominees, The Ethio-Irish Ruth Nega who recently emerged through her amazing performance in the TV series Preacher and Loving has been nominated along the great actresses Isabelle Huppert Elle, Natalie Portman Jackie
,Emma Stone La La Land, Meryl Streep Florence Foster Jenkins.
Ruth Negga was honoured for playing Mildred Loving, the African-American woman whose case helped end Virginia’s anti-miscegenation laws, in Jeff Nichols’s powerful, subtle Loving.
