White instead of gold- the oscars

People have been calling this year’s Academy Awards the whitest since the 90s. Last year, I was pleased to see a good diversity in the nominees and now this year, I am definitely a little disappointed. While I am not outraged to the point of boycotting the show, I’m frustrated that an industry I want so much to be apart of is still so prejudice against female filmmakers and minorities. I want to go into film because of how it can move and change an audience. But how can this industry do that when it doesn’t make many movies that allow a diverse population to relate and understand. This AP article is a great perspective on the show and the Academy itself.
