Mark Ruffalo has told BBC Breakfast he is considering boycotting the Oscars after the academy failed to nominate any black actors for a second year in a row.

The actor is up for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Spotlight.

The film follows the true story of how a group of journalists uncovered widespread historical child abuse by priests in the Roman Catholic church.

BBC Breakfast's Charlie Stayt went to meet him and began by talking about his awards success.
