This Re-edit Portrays ‘Straight Outta Compton’ as An Oscar Contender

It’s Oscar Sunday, and while it’s wonderful to see some of the world’s biggest stars gather together to celebrate the industry’s success, but the Academy that voted for this year’s nominees was immediately criticized so its lack of diversity, a frustrated best manifested by the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag.

Many critics felt that one of the year’s biggest pictures, “Straight Outta Compton,” was snubbed across all categories but “best original screenplay” (the film’s screenwriters are white). Fortunately, the good folks at Super Deluxe put together a re-edit of “Straight Outta Compton” that might make it more acceptable to the Academy’s older, whiter members. If you want to know how the film’s stars felt about not being invited to the industry’s biggest night, check out our interview with “Compton” star O'Shea Jackson Jr.

Be sure to watch this supercut of the 2016 Oscar nominees, and catch the awards at 8:30 PM Eastern time.
