It's no surprise to us, but Will Smith has announced he will be joining his wife Jada Pinkett Smith in boycotting the Oscars on Feb. 28, due to the lack of diversity in the nominations -- aka the Academy only nominated white people for the actor/actress categories.

On Thursday, the actor, who was snubbed for his role in Concussion, went on Good Morning America and said, "At this current time we're uncomfortable to stand there and say this is OK."

Smith also said he is supporting his wife's Facebook plea for a change, saying, "I appreciated the push. There's a position we hold in this community and if we're not part of the solution, we're part of the problem."

The 47-year-old actor also claimed that even if he he "had been nominated and no other people of color" were -- we find that doubtful, but okay. He went on to say, "This is so deeply not about me," he explained.

He continued, "There's going to be children who are gonna sit down and watch this show and they're not gonna be represented."

More will be revealed in the coming days about this developing story ...
