Leslie Jones Skips Oscars 2020 Voting Except for 2 Categories - Find Out Why

Former Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones has revealed that she abstained from voting in a majority of the categories for the 2020 Oscars this year.

The reason why? The complete lack of diversity across the board in this year’s nominations.

“Welp I just finished voting for the Oscars. It didn’t take long cause there are no black people on it. So I voted for @CynthiaEriVo and abstained from the rest of the voting,” Leslie tweeted with the hashtag “more black people please,” before following up with, “Ok geeeez yes I voted for @MatthewACherry tooo didn’t think I needed to say that! The post was obvious! No chill. His film was on before @AngryBirdsMovie #iswearimdonewithyall”

Cynthia is up for the Lead Actress award for her work in Harriet and Matthew is up for Best Animated Short for Hair Love.

Leslie Jones Tells 'Fallon' How Got the 'Game of Thrones' Writers to Direct Her Netflix Special!

Leslie Jones paid a visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (January 22), and dished all about her Netflix stand-up special, Time Machine!

The 51-year-old SNL star explained her reasoning for wanting to do it. “People didn’t know me as a stand-up, [but] all my life I’ve been doing it,” she said. “That’s where my love is. I love people to laugh.”

Jimmy then asked his guest how she recruited the Game of Thrones writers, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, to direct the show, to which Jones responded, “I had a list of directors I wanted.”

Leslie said that she asked Lorne Michaels about the possibility of Steven Spielberg, but Michaels said no. Then she asked about J.J. Abrams, but he was busy doing Star Wars. “Then I was like, who else could catch action, but somebody who shoots a dragon?” laughed Jones. “What am I? A dragon!”

Leslie Jones and Jimmy also got into a heated debate about Below Deck and their very different feelings about the cast.
