Straight Outta Compton was a GREAT movie.
While the film was not nominated for any Golden Globe Awards this morning, it was recognized by the Screen Actors Guild.
Straight Outta Compton is up for an award in the category of Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, what amounts to the SAG version of best picture.
The critical recognition accompanies what has already been a landmark run for Straight Outta Compton. In just four months, the film has earned the titles of highest grossing biopic and highest grossing movie by a black director by raking in over $161 million domestically.
Compton faces off against the Idris Elba-led Beasts of No Nation, The Big Short starring Christian Bale, Spotlight with Mark Ruffalo, and the Bryan Cranston-anchored Trumbo for the honor. Good luck guys.
