According to MercuryNews.com, Pharrell will attend this years Academy Awards to present an Award with Common and Quincy Jones, but Mr. Jones threatens to boycott the Academy Awards. Quincy Jones says he’ll boycott the Academy Awards unless its board of governors — of which he’s a member — allows him to speak to them about why there isn’t more diversity among nominees.
“We’ve got to find a solution. It’s been going on for too long,” Jones said. “It’s frightening to see 90 percent white and 80 percent white males” nominated. The Oscars are due February 28, 2016.
