Thompson was not nominated for her performance in Creed
, nor was star Michael B. Jordan or director Ryan Coogler. Also snubbed was Netflix movie Beasts of No Nation
, starring Idris Elba, and N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton
, which received just one nomination for its four white screenwriters. Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs released a statement
on Monday saying she was "heartbroken and frustrated about the lack of inclusion" in this year’s nominations.
