Yesterday, MARTIN LUTHER KING MONDAY, January 18, 2016, #BLACKGIRLMAGIC was in FULL EFFECT as Actress/Director/Musician/Entrepreneur JADA PINKETT SMITH posted a video to her FACEBOOK account to announce that she WILL NOT ATTEND the 2016 ACADEMY AWARDS and she WILL NOT WATCH the ceremony while it is broadcast LIVE on ABC!!!

On Saturday, January 16, the very forthright artist took to TWITTER to engage in discussion with her fans and followers on the fact that 2016 marks the second consecutive year that there are no PEOPLE OF COLOR in ANY ACTING CATEGORIES that are nominated for an ACADEMY AWARD.

There are 5 nominees for each of the following 4 categories - 1. Best Actor, 2. Best Actress, 3. Best Supporting Actress, and 4. Best Supporting Actor, for a total of 20 nominees.

2016 is the SECOND CONSECUTIVE YEAR where there are NO People of Color nominated for these categories.

That represents a total of 0-For-40 ACADEMY AWARDS NOMINATIONS for PEOPLE Of COLOR over the past 2 years.
