How white are the Oscars?

Posted 8 years ago

Last year, the M.D of BroadwayBlack.com, April Reign, a former attorney, expressed her disappointment with the lack of diversity in the Oscar nominations. She correctly pointed out how women, people of colour and movies centered on them haven’t been given the much deserved recognition they are worthy of.

To express her displeasure, she coined the hash tag #OscarsSoWhite. This hash tag took social media platforms by storm, especially Twitter. She never expected it to become a wide spread movement that shook the very foundation of the most coveted awards in the world. Or so she thought.

A large hue and cry erupted, where many people voiced their concerns about the diversity problem. Her movement really took shape last year when people began boycotting the event. Ticket sales dropped and a few prominent names from the film fraternity also came out in support of inclusion of diversity. The agenda was to create an environment where the best and brightest people are acknowledged for their good work, regardless of their colour or ethnic background.

With this year’s nominations, everyone expected alterations in the policies of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. But clearly, not much has changed. For the second consecutive year in a row, not one coloured person has been nominated in the top four acting categories. Even in other categories, coloured people are more or less absent! Although, it can be safely assumed that people haven’t forgotten last year, the hash tag #OscarsSoWhite seems to have merely evolved in to #OscarsStillSoWhite.

What do you think? We would like to know your opinion regarding this alleged bias! Is there really a discriminating tendency in the academy awards against coloured people?  Or is it a mere coincidence that this year too, all actors/artistes nominated for their cinematic excellence are white? Write to us and give us your opinion on this matter in the comments section, below. Your Adytude matters!

  • Sumit Chauhan Posted 8 years agoI have been watching movies from all genres and I have seen a lot of good actors and they were not white.I don't think that Oscar nominations should depend upon the colour or background of any person.We are living in 21st century and still some people think the same way they use to think long time ago. You can see the nominations - Bryan Cranston, Trumbo , Matt Damon, The Martian,Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant etc. I know the entertainment industry looks beautiful from outside but still dark from inside with lot of mysteries and pain. #OscarsStillSoWhite
  • Swapnil PorwalPosted 8 years agoI think the people understand the hard work that actor done .If the movie is good and the actor acting is best, then he deserve the award.
  • Nikhil ParmarPosted 8 years agothis is very bad attitude by the oscar committee , change is what leads to development so why not a new award should be introduced but this time no white should be entertained in it. it will surely boost and give a parallel competition to oscars. then after few year both award function can be merged and a fair picture will be presented where no discrimination will be entertained.
  • Swapnil PorwalPosted 8 years agoI think it is just a coincidence because they are the highly professional people they can not do such a thing which discourage the actors for their best performance in acting.
  • MUKESH KUMAR SINGHPosted 8 years agoYes The best Deal for Expression more
  • Swapan PanjaPosted 8 years agoPeople thinks so , but there are learned people sitting at helm to give a very best of best choice of from the esteemed league of versatile actor's. It will be a gradual process of change , will be in due course of time.

  • Krishnaveni KPosted 6 years agoNever ever awards depend on the colour and its should always depend on the hard-work and film script. A movie cannot be a movie without actress or actor and film making people around the film who are not seen on screen. So always look for perfect script and hard of the people in the film and to provide awards.

  • sujit.purkayasthaPosted 4 years agoI am not agree upon the above comment. Normally the Oscar is top prize so the choosing of film or actors does not depend on the colour as mentioned above.
