Oscars Will Now Require “Diversity”

Why yes, the ubur-white elitists in Hollywood think that minorities, especially blacks, cannot succeed without their helpful hand

Want an Oscar? Better be inclusive. Academy to make diversity requirements part of awards eligibility.

On the heels of a historic election that saw a record number of women and people of color — including Oscar winner Whoopi Goldberg and Oscar-nominated filmmaker Ava DuVernay — elected to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences board of governors, the organization behind the Oscars has announced new representation and inclusion initiatives for 2020 and beyond. The most striking and potentially most controversial: to be eligible for a future Oscar, contenders would have to meet some as-yet unspecified diversity requirement.

“While the Academy has made strides, we know there is much more work to be done in order to ensure equitable opportunities across the board,” Academy CEO Dawn Hudson said in a statement. “The need to address this issue is urgent. To that end, we will amend — and continue to examine — our rules and procedures to ensure that all voices are heard and celebrated.” (snip)

For the Oscars, the Academy will create a new task force — whose membership will include current Governor-at-Large DeVon Franklin — that will implement new representation and inclusion standards for Oscar eligibility. They are tasked with coming up with rules that will go into effect beginning with films released in 2021. Meanwhile, the number of Best Picture nominees will officially be set at 10, allowing for a greater range of titles to be in contention for the top prize. (The Academy made the move back to 10 nominees in 2009, but allowed the number to fluctuate in recent years.)

At the end of the day, it will become less about the quality of the movie and more about things other than the quality of the movie. Movies will have to give blacks and other “minorities” roles not because they are great actors and fit the role, but because they need to check off the Diversity Box. Tokenism. Being given a role, a position in the filming team, simply because of the color of their skin.

Might as well just give everyone a trophy for making a movie. What is funny is that this uber-leftist organization needs to set rules because they aren’t inclusive. What they’re going to do is end up ruining even more films. Seriously, everyone can tell when there is a token person in a film or TV show. I have zero problem with some of these mostly black movies and TV shows. Go for it. People want to watch what they identify with.

How is it an Oscar if it is based not on quality and content but on skin color? John Nolte notes

The Woke Taliban have been chipping away at artistic freedom for three decades, and now the actual death of artistic freedom will be enshrined by the Motion Picture Academy’s new “diversity requirements.”

Over the past three decades, the fascism of political correctness has only grown more oppressive and suffocating, but now, with the left-wing moral panic sparked by the tragic death of George Floyd while in police custody, the left is emboldened; and when the left is emboldened, cities burn, statues topple, careers and people are disappeared, good men are murdered, civil liberties are trampled, and the dual horrors of blacklisting and censorship reign supreme.

The left’s blacklisting rampage is already in full force, and only getting started. Classic movies and television shows that are not disappearing entirely are either under direct threat or face the desecration of a Big Brother Corporation instructing us on how to think and feel about art.

In a sane world, the one guardian against this vandalism and terror would be the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), the keepers of the flame of artistic freedom. But the left are no longer sane and rather than rage against the Woke Taliban destroying and suffocating art and artists, the AMPAS has not only remained silent, it has joined the mob…

    Participation trophies for everyone!!!

    Just give all future awards to MLK and BLM. No need for a ceremony. For that matter, only Hollywood insiders cared about awards before this so no real loss.

      No, there was a time, long ago and far away, when the Oscars did mean something, along with who won the World Series, who was heavyweight champ, who won the Kentucky Derby, and who was Miss America.

      Before the blacklist ended and the Left wanted to divide the country into petty, bickering camps.

    Virtue signaling. Making the Oscars about “art”, as opposed to what the people liked, didn’t work, so they’re trying this.

    Hell I quit watching these sluts a long time ago. I was intrigued by Jennifer Lawrence’s range of emotion in the hunger games and Winters Bone, then I learned a bit more about her as a person and after I gave up my lunch to the toilet, I set down the remote and started watching Youtube.

    Id rather watch puppies playing with Kittens than a serious attempt by Hollywood to brainwash me with their social drivel.

      Klem,

      Like you, I stopped watching manwhores like Clint Eastwood, Jon Voight, Charlton Heston and John Wayne a long time ago. Too bad, since Clint Eastwood was a good actor and moviemaker.

      We all understand that movies are fiction, but YouTubers push a lot of fiction as fact.

        Your right. GOOGLE and YOUTUBE should be abolished today.

        DID YOU KNOW 50 center that GOOGLE has less than 3 percent of its entire work force as Blacks and less than 1 percent of its upper level management?

        Time to #CANCEL GOOGLE/YouTube isnt it?

        Oh probably not. I mean its fashionable to say google it. Or to have all those china apps on your android phone by Samsung.

        The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

        John BOLTON is coming out with a new book bashing Trump. LOL I bet he says 50 million copies the first day. All to people that 3 years ago thought he was the vilest man on the planet until he promises dirt on TRUMP.

        LOLOLOLOLOL…..

      • formwiz says:

        He means he stopped watching Conservative actors.

        Be a man. Tell the truth. You like the real manwhores. It fits right in with your hatred of America and your Leftism.

        And Clint isn’t that good an actor.

        • Klemdadiddlehopper says:

          Yeah I know he posted all conservatives. Who can argue with Clint giving his imaginary talking to with Obama on stage?

          He is so predictable. I thought JLAW was awesome until I started looking into her personal life as a fanboi and she is NOT POLITICAL. She is just a drunk that no one likes, parties recklessly and dates men 30 years older than her in powers of position. You know like the guy just went to prision for so called assaulting this ASPIRING ACTRESSES……..lololololol.

          I’m surprised he didnt rag on Mark Wahlberg. I mean after all he does mention god and has become religious. Or how About Gary Sinese who used to be part of Hollywood and is now into helping our troops and doing TV.

          There is a difference between TRUE HOLLYWOOD and the rest of the entertainment industry. HOllywood is full of self righteous sluts/Manwhores and as Steven Spielberg said recently WAH…WAH…WAH….NETFLIX Movies should not be considered for OSCARS….WAH…WAH…WAH…they are not part of our culture we can control and brainwash.

          Just like you ever noticed most of the new actors are now coming from Australia, UK and Ireland? Why? Not really sure but 2/3rds of the Walking dead cast is from the UK.

          Gotta be a reason, I would say that TV’s and Netflix and Prime cant afford those 50 million dollar A-listers who spend all their time telling us what to think and trying to #Cancel us.

          I hope the #Cancel the Oscar TBH.

    I set yet another personal record this year by missing the Oscars for 60 years in a row. IDGAF.

  6. Bkhuna says:

    The Oscars might mean something if 99.9% of what came out of the film industry wasn’t crap to start with.

    • Kye says:

      I have never watched the Oscars in my life, nor the Emmy’s, nor any award show and I ain’t starting now. I have also never watched an entire Football, baseball, hockey or basketball game including the World Series, the Superbowl or any ridiculous play-offs. Not interested in cars going around in circles, the summer or winter Olympics or the Westminster dog show. You couldn’t pay me to watch either golf or bowling.

      I do watch the Mecum and Barrett-Jackson Auto Auctions.

      In fact in my entire life I only went to one sporting event and that was when my Dad forced me to go to Connie Mac Stadium to see “The greatest baseball player that ever lived”, as my Dad called him, Ted Williams. I was bored to death.

      I would love to see racist organizations go out of business however, it seems being racist against whites is the new chic. Not only do Black Lives Matter but white lives don’t. We have a civilization created by whites about to be taken over by howling primitives. What could go wrong?

      Trump 2020 Let’s get America back to sanity.

    The only good thing about the Oscars, or any of the other Hollywood awards shows, was Joan River’s Fashion Police show afterward, and she’s dead now.

    But really, why not have more ‘diversity’? After all, it seems that the only thing Hollywood produces these days are superhero flicks and remakes; I think they’ve just flat run out of ideas.

    I hear that the release date for “Wonder Woman 1984” has been delayed until October. I’m sure that I’ll watch Wonder Woman 1984 the same way I watched the first Wonder Woman movie . . . when it came on TNT or FX or some other network, for free.

    Given the suspension of disbelief required for any superhero movie, Wonder Woman was actually pretty good.
