Ice Cube Dismisses Oscars Boycott: We Do Movies for the People, Not the Industry

One of the biggest #OscarsSoWhite complaints is that the critically-acclaimed film Straight Outta Compton was snubbed (save for a Best Original Screenplay nod). Ice Cube, one of the members of N.W.A. and producer on the film, was asked by British talk show host Graham Norton today for his take on the controversy.

Ice Cube said he’s not really planning on “boycotting” because he’s never gone to the Oscars anyway. He said the award ceremonies are basically one giant horse race, and if you lose you move on. 

“We don’t do movies for the industry,” he said, “we do it for the people.”

To Ice Cube, it’s more rewarding to hear how many fans have said they loved Straight Outta Compton, and so to be upset about not getting awards on top of that is basically “crying about not having enough icing on your cake.”
