Rooney Mara, nominated for her supporting performance in the 1950s-set lesbian drama "Carol," said she had just read an article the other day suggesting that there should be a hashtag for "Oscars so straight."
"These are all important conversations for us to be having," Mara said. Beyond the discussions of #OscarsSoWhite, the nominees were also just excited to be there to celebrate with their peers.
