Gillian Anderson Speechless Over All-White Oscar Noms In Middle Of Interview On “Larry King Now”

Award-winning actress Gillian Anderson sat down with Larry King on Emmy nominated series “Larry King Now” and got candid about the challenges in revisiting Agent Scully, what to expect from the ‘X-Files’ reboot, & her love/hate relationship with acting. Plus, Gillian on feminism and the Oscars’ all-white acting nominations.

Gillian Anderson is shocked to hear the news that not a single actor of color is nominated for an Academy Award this year. When Larry asks Gillian Anderson if we’ve made strides on gender inequality, she responds, “Well it seems like the conversation is getting bigger and broader and more acceptable to have the conversation and there are some very powerful women out there who are leading that conversation… and from what I see there is action leading that conversation.”

Larry’s then the first to tell Gillian that no person of color was nominated for an Oscar this year and her jaw drops. “Is that true!? That is unbelievable. Oh my god,” while losing her train of thought and unable to continue the interview.

It’s crazy to watch.  King actually goes on to continue speaking and Anderson is just in a daze of disbelief.  She’s not the only one that feels this way.  Seems like the academy took a giant step backwards this year after last year’s Lupita Nyong’O took home an Oscar.  The biggest noticeable snub was Michael B. Jordan for best actor in Creed.   Celebrities have been extremely upset over the lack of color in this year’s nominees.  We’ll have to see if it gets addressed at this year’s Oscars.
