The nominees list for Oscar 2015 is out. People are talking about who was left out from the 87th Academy Awards lineup. It's the whitest Oscars since 1998. Social media has been buzzing about no presence of diversity in this years line up. Using the hashtag #oscarsowhite, fans took up to twitter to show their dismay in apropos to the nominations. 
According to the statistics by Alice Vincent and Ben Webett of the Telegraph, the voting members of the Academy, who select the nominated artists, are 94% white, 77% male and have a median age of 62. This has been lately termed as a reason by the movie fans for why the nominations accounts too few women as compared to men, few of black ethnicity as compared to the whites and most nominees being the middle aged. The nominations for four main categories- Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best supporting Actress features no non-white actors, which seems an suprise! Ava DuVernay, director of the film Selma​ and her cast member David Oyelowo were both acclaimed for their work in the movie but their efforts seem to be unrecognised. The fact that the film was nominated for Best Picture, but director Ava DuVernay and lead actor David Oyelowoo were snubbed, came as a surprise to critics and fans alike.
A nomination for DuVernay would have made history, making her the very first African-American woman nominated for Best Director. In addition, the fifth woman to be nominated in this category.
The other biggest snub by Oscar 2015 is no nomination of The Lego Movie for the Best Animated Feature Movie. The Lego Movie which was the highest-grossing film of 2014 at the UK box office got snubbed by the Oscars.
