When it comes to the levels of fame there are intricate differences between legends like Al Pacino, Denzel Washington, and Leo Dicaprio versus Kim Kardashian and Blac Chyna. Both hold influence in varying arenas but they are not the same, and should not be looked upon as the same. Why The Academy decided to extend invites to C level celebrities is unclear.

Aside from the aftershock of trying to understand Blac Chyna coinciding with "The Oscars". Her new face alterations were reminiscent of when Lil Kim made a an appearance after being in the shadows for a while, and fans weren't sure that she was the same woman.
