'Straight Outta Compton' Director F. Gary Gray Reacts to SAG Award Nomination

Actors Ice Cube, O’Shea Jackson Jr, and director F. Gary Gray pose together at the Straight Outta Compton Celebration Lunch held at Chevalier Restaurant on Wednesday (December 9) in New York City.

The trio was joined by Cuba Gooding Jr, Gayle King, Willie Geist, and Jay Pharoah.

Straight Outta Compton just nabbed a 2016 SAG Awards nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast.

“Not to sound cliché but we worked really, really hard to get this on the screen,” F. Gary told People about the nod. “It took us years to find this cast and we put them through a lot to deliver those performances and they delivered. So to be acknowledged and amongst a lot of great artists and a lot of great films, we honestly didn’t expect it.”
