No Oscar nomination? No problem.

The cast of Straight Outta Compton had a pitch perfect response to the film's lack of love from the Academy, with O'Shea Jackson Jr. telling ET's Cameron Mathison: "You know you're the man when you're not invited to the party, and all they can do is talk about you."

"We feelin' good," Jackson told ET. "We here with those who are celebrating Straight Outta Compton and we ready to party!"

Jackson's dad, Ice Cube, has taken a similarly relaxed approach to the film's Oscar snub.

"We got so much praise for the movie, and it's like -- how could you be mad because one other academy or guild or anybody didn't say it's number one?" he said in an appearance on The Graham Norton Show earlier this week. "It's crying about not having enough icing on your cake. It's just ridiculous."
