>The Oscars' whiteness problem runs deeper than the actors
>Excluding Best Foreign Language Film and the already-lily-white acting achievement Oscars, the remaining awards are dominated by white men. Out of a total 186 potential recipients for such categories as production design and costuming, only 15 are people of color. Forty are women, and only two are women of color. That means a whopping 72 percent of all the nominees here are white and male.
Does /tv/ think PoC should be nominated more?
Is the Academy racist?
>Mfw non-Whites literally can't get anywhere without guilt ridden Whites helping them, getting butthurt and demanding they get everything
This whole race, gender, and whatever Body Politics shit is ridiculos. Growing up I would read the paper before school and come home and internet and there would be non of this race and gender shit. No one cared. I wish these race and gender baiting faggots would just cut the shit and do actual news stories.
80% of nurses are females
80% of the NBA is black
wow, it's like some groups excel at some things more than others
I'm so fucking tired of leftists peddling race and sex as the most important human traits you can judge a person on
Isn't that ironic? Biggest racists/sexists today: liberals. Fuck you faggots. Islam when
When these talentless asshats realized the color of the skin was all they had to distinguish themselves
I don't know how much longer this society is going to continue to entertain their petulance
>Someone actually spent time on those calculations
>Does /tv/ think PoC should be nominated more?
If they merit it, I have no issue. If you're selecting people based purely on tokenism then all you succeed in doing is devaluing the award.
Now, some may argue that Oscars have no real value, but the Academy would say otherwise and if they wish to maintain the idea they're the most prestigious prize in cinema, selecting nominees based on race rather than ability, is not only incredibly patronising and condescending, but out right wrong.
Do these critics really think non-white actors would rather be judged upon the colour of their skin, or their skill as a performer, because they're essentially advocating the former.
it goes further than that
women get in before niggers for playing roles that are essentially just themselves, like Jennifer Lawrence
Meanwhile men have a cut-throat competition, Will Smith had to become someone else physically, verbally and emotionally in order to fullfill his role.
Same for 90% of the actors in that category
>le the academy is all old white men meme
Anyone got an actual list of the people who vote on this shit?
>blah blah sjws
>blah blah niggers
>blah blah wimmin
>blah blah liberals
>blah blah jews
When did /tv/ become such a boring hive of retards parroting the shit posted on /pol/ and incapable of reasoned, balanced debate?
no longer can this oppression of crackers continue
There is nothing reasonable about the charges levied in the OP, nor in judging people based off of the color of their skin, which this author is obviously doing.
Blacks are not involved or interested in filmmaking in anything close to the same degree whites are, and are only moderately involved in acting
at the end of the day they are 12% of this country and have different values, that is going to manifest in different industrial results
do you fucking get that
people have a yearning and thirst for conflict and war because their lives are so peaceful and dull that they want some excitement, so they pick at the scabs of society by constantly needling the racial/gender angle in order to provoke some major happenings.
if we all had a proper good war, none of this would be happening and people would be getting their anger and frustration out in other ways.
People of color shouldn't be nominated simply because they're not white. However, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a little bit of bias (probably unconscious bias) in the nomination process.
The Oscars are largely voted-on by white people over age 50, after all.
How about people just go even more blatant about making an Oscar Bait movie?

No. They go into sports because they like sports. Black kids love sports.
Movie club is usually full of white nerds.
Your perception of the world has no basis in reality and is predicated on the existence of imaginary boogeymen.
So are you saying you're not special?
Are you saying that no one should give a shit about you?
Are you saying that your opinion and words don't matter?
Are you saying that you're a failure?
Perversely overrepresented. We're talking about a group of people that constitute barely 2% of this country and are present at levels of 50% at several stages of filmmaking and production.
This is the biggest, clearest, case of "bias" in Hollywood and SHOULD be the first thing addressed, and yet it won't be, because the white man is the SJW's eternal satan.
By any metric (history, culture, genetics) Ashkenazi Jews are incredibly white.
The only reason you consider Jews to be non-white is because they are non-Christian, but by this metric the Vikings weren't white either.
>listen to Film Vault
>Anderson talks about how the Academy is racist as fuck because they're all old white men
>hopefully when they die off we can have TRUe equality
I fucking hate that little white guilt bitch so bad
I'll ask again; where did I present a defence for "retards crying that they aren't given out awards for being the color of shit."?
Quote the post you think I made where I did this. Thanks.
not him but let's consider being Jewish an "in-group" here
most whites are not part of this in-group, even if Jews are an offshoot of whites, and it is based off of racial heritage
I don't give a shit about you race baiters, but let's be honest;
regardless of the bullshit reasons regarding legitimising netflix, Beasts of No Nation was snubbed hard
And there are about 20 other films that got snubbed so that the martian and mad max could pretend to be real films
Stop acting contrarian, regardless of their bullshit identity politics agenda, these nominations are fucking disgraceful even for the oscars
why don't you read your first post, you daft nigger?
you purposely belittle and misrepresent counter arguments to the article while throwing in some common leftists tropes that weren't even mentioned and then declare yourself a winner. this might work on reddit where your fellow butthurt shitskins will upboat you and downvote anyone who isn't retarded, but not here.
They're a little more than that, they have a strong cohesive identity that they maintain and a religious basis as well
at any rate, their nepotism is pretty damn clear and rampant
same thing with Ivy League schools, no one addresses this shit
>That means a whopping 72 percent of all the nominees here are white and male
>literally build western civilization
>everybody hates you for it
can this meme end please?
>the only worthwhile performances were given by the kids
Blacks go into sports because it's literally the only way they can get into college or high paying jobs.
Whites aren't in sports because it's LITERALLY beneath them, and the only connection whites will have in sports is profiting off their negro servants dribbling good or running the touchdown, or directing said servants by the sidelines as a pot-bellied coach (they even call them "coach" over their name, like the slaves of old would say "master.")
No. You have no idea about what you're talking about.
Blacks are afforded a bevy of institutional benefits like affirmative action and race-based grants and scholarships.
The athletes in college don't actually care about college or the education, they care about the sport they're playing.
You are literally retarded. For a set academic performance blacks/darkies have higher acceptance rates not only for bachelors, but also graduate degrees.
My adviser accepted a hispanic student that had a shit tier GPA just so that he could claim that the lab has minorities when applying for grants. He includes a separate section for his grant proposals listing current and past minority/female students.
>we all know that this is ultimately how the discussion will end.
Well I was hoping it would end with you quoting my first post in this thread and you pointing out where a presented a defence.
You have still failed to do this.
It was a simple request for you to point out which (first) post of mine rustled your jimmies by defending ""retards crying that they aren't given out awards for being the color of shit."
You still haven't identified which post of mine did this.
>going into sports
Yea because I'm sure being a pro-NBA player playing a game for 4 million a year is the last thing on their job list, they should be treated equal and given the same 60-70k/yr 9-5 job opportunities.as us.
