Gary Gray, is up against Beasts of No Nation, The Big Short,Spotlight, and Trumbo. Elsewhere, the blockbuster has gotten nominations for the NAACP Image Awards, People’s Choice Awards, and Satellite Award. Last night, it was named Best Picture, Best Ensemble, and Best Actor (Jason Mitchell) by the African-American Film Critics Association.
“Woke up to a #SAGAwards nomination for best ensemble #StraightOuttaCompton and now I can’t go back sleep,” tweeted Mitchell, who played the late Eazy-E in the pic. “What if I’m still asleep and dreaming that I’m on here tweeting about a #SAGAwards nomination? #Inception.”
Congrats to the Guys and we can't wait for your Oscar noms!
