It is that time of the year again, and on Sunday 28th of February, Chris Rock will present the 88th event. The nominations have highlighted several issues however, creating rows over diversity and inclusion in the Oscars. With 20 out of the 20 nominees for acting being white for the second year in a row, some celebrities have refused to show up at all. Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs released a statement pledging to double the number of female and minority members of the Academy by 2020. We shall see.
