    This is nuts!

    http://www.theroot.com/blogs/the_grapevine/2016/01/straight_outta_compton_cast_not_invited_to_oscars.html

     No disrespect to the likes of Anne Thompson, Nate at Film Experience, Sasha Stone- but how do they get to go to the Dolby Theater for the Oscars but the cast of an Oscar nominated movie gets DECLINED? That’s repulsive. It’s a well known secret that no one will dish how they get the hookups with seats, but I think it’s worth talking about. Isn’t it very hard to even walk the red carpet? I’ve heard $20,000 just for that. So why does a film cast get told “Nope” even though their film is an Oscar contender for Screenplay, but you’ll read some Awards Blogger bragging “I’ll be going this year to the Oscars again…what a life.” I write about film all the time and have a big YouTube Following- can I get tickets? Where is the line drawn? 

    Sorry for the rant, but it’s rather odd how the rules work.

    I think these bloggers get to put their names in/kind of a lottery system.

    How likely is it when an entire cast is invited because the screenplay was nominated? The only reason I can see an entire cast going is when it’s up for best picture.  How often do we see actors in the audience that are not nominees or presenters?  I mean I have not kept count over the 30 years I’ve been watching, but for some reason I can’t recall too many.

    How many tickets are given to each nominee?
    How many seats are in the theater?
    I think this article’s particular outcry is not well thought out. 

    Denied is a strong word, the author of the article didn’t even use it.

    The point is they are actual stars of the film. How do they get told No but random bloggers get an OK? Unless it’s a lottery as Logan suggested.

    When this news broke a couple weeks ago I think it came out that the way non-nominated stars of films receive tickets is by their studios requesting them and Universal did not.

    The tickets that would go to stars like the cast of Straignt Outta Compton are not the same tickets that go to Oscar bloggers. Those stars would need to be on the ground floor. The bloggers you mentioned will be in the back of the balcony.

    Who told them no?  Did they even ask?  The author never says they were denied or told no, she says they were not invited.  It may seem like semantics but it isn’t really.  Had the academy told them no, then the uproar would have been huge all over the media.

    What’s funny is that Sasha Stone do desperately wants to think she’s a factor in the Oscars and can help shape how Academy members vote.

    Where was this article last year when Nightcrawler only got a screenplay nomination, and the cast didn’t go but bloggers and reporters probably did!? 

    People writing this article this year because of #OscarsSoWhite yawnfest (sorry, but it is now), when it has gone on for many years previously. Bore off!

    Also, are those reporters all going into the ceremony itself, or will they be in the press room? Bit of a difference if they are all in the press room!

    So why not people from “The Hunting Ground” documentary is going? Why they didn’t get the invitation? It got nominated for Original Song. So shameful.

    Lol joking aside, this is nothing more than another #OscarSoWhite propaganda shit. Casts don’t get invitation for a Screenplay nom. Or an Original Song nomination. So based on this logic, why wouldn’t all the nominated films (like Cinderella for Costume) have all their casts invited to the ceremony?….

    Preach AMG and Vincelette! We can also say the same thing about this years Screenplay and Visual Effects nominee Ex Machina and its diverse cast that includes Guatemelan, Japanese and African-American actors in it. Media are just grasping to stars to milk this racism issue to its last drop for their click bait articles and that poor attemp itself looks beyond ridicolous at this point. And jhaddad also summoned the whole situation up pretty well before PC police in here going gaga over this news. Like you all have noticed when watching the Oscars is that theatre isn’t actually that large, but it is tall. There aren’t many seats at the front floor where the celebrities and nominees are supposed to sit. Majority of the crowd are lined up in balconys. And there is just no way that they can be able to fit all 55 nominated movies casts and “crew” every year in those seats. Because why do we always care about actors? If 10 actors from the same movie can go to an award ceremony that they’re not even nominated to begin with, why shouldn’t, its producers, director or even cinematographer etc. who have made the movie possible?

    And lol at SOC being selected as this years token black snubbed movie and being treated as some kind of a masterpiece. The movie was not even an Oscar bait to begin with, or really a critics darling. It’s a movie that designed to decorate tumblr gifs with its hip-hop one-liners more than it is designed for award circuits. The only argument people used for its Oscar chances was its masive box office and that always means less than one might think with the snobs in the Academy. Another pop culture young-skewing summer hit Bridesmaids was also nominated at SAG, PGA, WGA and was snubbed at the Oscars and I don’t remember any outrage about that. It also even had an actor nominated in a competitive category along with its screenplay.

    I just hope Jennifer Lopez isn’t invited and asked to present (especially present a music category). #1, she can’t sing. #2, she hasn’t had a movie even close to being on Oscar’s radar in over 15 years. But she’s pretty and poses well on the red carpet so they invite her. Heck, she hasn’t even had a movie that could be called a hit in over 10 years.

    Would it have been nice for the SOC to have their studio secure tickets for them and appear on the telecast? Of course. I think these young men can have good futures ahead of them in this industry and a little industry exposure never hurt. SOC was getting some awards buzz, even if it wasn’t typical awards bait when it first was released. Plus it was a huge hit. Money does tend to talk in Hollywood.
