The cast of Straight Outta Compton will not be in attendance at the Oscars February 28 — but it won’t be because of a boycott.
According to TMZ — the cast — and Ice Cube — producer of the movie — weren’t even invited.
Our ‘Compton’ sources say none of the cast received an invitation — mirroring the nomination process. We’re told the only people invited are the 2 writers nominated for best original screenplay.
Not that Cube’s losing a lot of sleep over it — we’re told he would’ve RSVP’d a ‘No’ … even if he’d been invited.
It’s unclear if this is really a diss. There’s no public list of Academy members, so it’s hard to say what the Academy’s criteria are for extending an invite. We’ve reached out, but no word back yet.
Ice Cube will reportedly attend the Screen Actors Guild Awards and NAACP Image Awards.
