Ice Cube and 'Straight Outta Compton' cast don't get invited to the Oscars

As if it wasn’t bad enough that Straight Outta Compton was snubbed for any Oscar nominations for the cast, now they aren’t even allowed at the awards ceremony itself.

According to TMZ, the cast has not received invitations to the February awards show, where they were not nominated for any awards but could have at least seen their two white writers, Andrea Berloff and Jonathan Herman, possibly snag an Oscar in the best original screenplay category.

The Academy is notoriously stingy about giving out tickets to the event, but at a time when the entertainment industry is in uproar over the #OscarsSoWhite, this is not the kind of snub that the Academy needs added to its reputation right now.
