Are the Oscars Too White…Again? #OscarsSoWhite
So the question of the moment is
“Why are the Oscars® so white again? #OscarsSoWhite
The 88th Annual Academy Awards haven’t even aired yet, and there is a hurricane of drama surrounding Hollywood’s most exciting night. Celebrities like Spike Lee and Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have called for a boycott due to a lack of minority nominees.
If you look at the graphic below (Courtesy of www.mirror.co.uk) you see the Acadamy doesn’t have a firm foundation to stand on.
I usually don’t discuss topics like this on Indie Film Hustle but when the opportunity to have a sit-down with RB Botto from Stage 32.com and talk all things Oscar I jumped at the chance.
