The Straight Outta Compton cast has lots to celebrate today.  The film just nabbed an Academy Award nomination!  Deets inside...

Polish up that Oscar!  Straight Outta Compton has just been nominated for Best Original Screenplay!  The Academy Award nominations rolled in this morning, and the cast, crew and writers have lots to celebrate.

The screenplay was written by Andrea Berloff and Jonathan Herman, both of whom have more than a few major writing credits under their belts.

Also, congrats to the much acclaimed Nina Simone documentary What Happened, Miss Simone? for landing the nomination for Best Documentary Feature.

The fact that every single actor nominee is white hasn't gone unnoticed by us, or the Internet. The #OscarSoWhite hashtag is back in effect as a trending topic today on Twitter.

The 88th annual Academy Awards air live from the Dolby Theater on February 28th on ABC, hosted by Chris Rock
