>"I’d like to acknowledge the wonderful work of this year’s nominees," she said. "While we celebrate their extraordinary achievements, I am both heartbroken and frustrated about the lack of inclusion. This is a difficult but important conversation, and it’s time for big changes.
>"The Academy is taking dramatic steps to alter the makeup of our membership. In the coming days and weeks we will conduct a review of our membership recruitment in order to bring about much-needed diversity in our 2016 class and beyond," Boone Isaacs said in what amounted to a rare and unusual move on the part of the Academy.
>"As many of you know," she continued, "we have implemented changes to diversify our membership in the last four years. But the change is not coming as fast as we would like. We need to do more, and better and more quickly."
>"This isn’t unprecedented for the Academy," added Boone Isaacs. "In the ‘60s and ‘70s, it was about recruiting younger members to stay vital and relevant. In 2016, the mandate is inclusion in all of its facets: gender, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation. We recognize the very real concerns of our community, and I so appreciate all of you who have reached out to me in our effort to move forward together."
So are they just going to include anyone in the Academy that isn't white?

Western culture is so fucking gay. This has got to be the only time in history the majority of a nation or culture is scared of the minority and goes out of their way to appease them for no reason. I cant wait for the pendulum of society to swing dramatically in the other direction as it always does whenever one movement goes too far.
this. i'm just in it for the memes 2bh pham
>black people should get their own oscars
or maybe the rich and powerful black people in entertainment should work towards making more Oscar bait like films and not just Ride Along 2.
Jada Pinkett sit there and whines while her husband is worth few 100million? Start a production company, find funding, make your award bait film like other studios do.
this whole issue just point out that even very successful blacks think everything is someone else fault and/or due to them being black in the first place. It's also just pathetic to be worth massive amounts of money and still be whining that some how you are not getting a fair shake in life. Jada Pinkett's son is shooting ads wearing dresses and showing up for wedding dressed as batman. Yet she is worried about if her husband got an award nod? He still got PAID for doing the film. booo fucking hooo.
>While we celebrate their extraordinary achievements, I am both heartbroken and frustrated about the lack of inclusion.
It is now basically a tragedy bordering on a crime to simply be white.
>This is a difficult but important conversation
Why do all these types of people speak in the same code? It's weird and creepy.
Blacks need to be nominated even if it's not oscar whorthy because the oscars are about multiculturalism and inclusiveness.
We need more races in the oscars especially blacks, I don't know why but it FEELS rigth, that's how we must do all this awards, fuck quality, fuck academic and professional criticism in films, fuck that shit, we need to do things according to what we feel.
Give awards to every race, we don't want to be labeled as racists, do we? just give equal nominations and awards to every race, blacks especially and everyone would be happy gosh! it's 2016 c'mon people get with the times.
True. Problem is his acting in that movie was fucking awful.
They don't appear to be trying very hard. Seriously, name a Oscar-worthy black performance from 2015. I honestly can't think of one.
Biggest movies with black leads:
Straight Out of Compton
I can't think of a SINGLE memorable movie with a black female lead.
And let's not ignore the elephant in the room - by and large in terms of high quality cinema, 2015 was a pretty shitty year. Fassbender and Damon got nominated fro best actor. They're already digging deep for those two based on The Martian and Jobs.
>Oh, no. People are actually going to be nominated on merit now instead of white skin color
You mean people are going to be awarded on their skin color rather than merit.
If you honestly think forced diversity and bar lowering are a good thing, you are what is wrong with the world and we would like you to leave.
Sometimes whites in a country and greater culture that is mostly whites will dominate a certain industry in a given year. Sort of how like blacks dominate certain sports despite being 11% of the US population.
But yeah, maybe teams should be forced to be at least 50% white. Because that would make sense.
Oscars are a joke already.
So they will start forcing selections for anyone but whites so that they will nominate people who are not white either.
It's not like it's based on merit now.
Jesus Christ, whine much /pol/?
It's not like white ppl won't still dominate the Oscars. If you guys are SOOOO great at acting, then you shouldn't be worried.
Clearly a group of people, according to this quoted person with power, having the "wrong" type of skin color is not just something that is "heartbreaking" and then meant to be forgotten after a good cry but something that must be rectified. With unilateral decree.
They might not be lobbying the government to make formal laws but then that wouldn't be appropriate in this situation. They have internal rules that they can create and enforce... to make sure there's not too many of the "wrong" type of people.
I think that has connotation of it being a rule breaking crime (but not a formal governmental one) for have a wrong skin color.
I love how this board doesn't even believe in the Oscars until all of a sudden a bunch of race baiting SJWs claim blacks are underrepresented. Then the Oscars magically becomes a meritocracy instead of just studio jews paying for awards.
>black people is relly good at sports
Do you see how many blacks win medals at the Olympic Games? Yeah man those good genetics! how can white man even compete?
>black people is not good acting or making movies
>black people is not good in something
I can see the shit now
>make the voting base 40% black, 50% white, 10% mexican
>screeners sent out to the voters are uploaded to the internet and sold on street corners 10x faster than ever before
Isn't that what just happened?
And nogs and SJW just lost their shit.
Its not like there is some law stopping blacks from being nominated.
Its just that there happened to be better white actors/movies/etc.
What the above post means is that now people will be so scared to be called racist, that in 2017 all Tyler Perry movies will be retroactively given Oscars.
True anti-racism isn't whinning like a faggot about race all the time.
>So are they just going to include anyone in the Academy that isn't white?
Yeah pretty much. It's ironic that SJWs complain about skin colour when they're the ones who care about the colour of skin most of all. If you're black, you're in, even if you don't have the necessary skills or talent.
Friendly reminder that "diversity" is code for "anti-white".
So lower the bar right?
Unless you're a SJW cuck obsessed with race, it shouldn't have even mattered.
Their thoughts should have been those movies were great, or they sucked or w/e
Not "reeeee where's muh diversity, where's muh blacks"
Because that shit is what's wrong with the West.
Things should be judged on their merit. Maybe that makes me a /pol/ boogyman though.
With the exception of the bean director and writers the last big winner didn't have any jewish producers
>can't use racist old white men as an excuse
Oh they'll find a way, anon. Kinda like how cops killing black people didn't matter when there was a white president and attorney general but when a black man gets elected president and a black man is attorney general it's all the white mans fault again.
This response seems a bit sudden. The Academy announces it's new inclusion policies as a timely and sensitive response to valid criticism from some of the most respected minorities in Hollywood.
Sounds like it was all just pre-arranged PR.
tl;dr the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is full of old Jews
Why don't they just realise the black skin awards. That way they don't have to enter a competition based on merit and enter the competition that they really want. The black skin hand out awards. For participating while being black award.
Mainstream film award shows don't make sense to me. They're so blatantly nationalistically bias, what's the point? In whatever year, Michael Palin won a BAFTA for A Fish Called Wanda. I love that film and that performance, but, what? The Oscars sometimes include one or two foreign films, and yet they also have a relegation pool for foreign films -- so what's the point?
The Oscars operate on this conceit that they're honoring the best films of that year but they're not at all. They honor Hollywood films most akin to the arthouse mode, and then sometimes ignore that entirely for the most polished Hollywood drama. It's just strange to me.
At least at Cannes there's a new panel each year, a slew of films are selected as a preliminary requirement, and then a multifaceted panel vote on those (globally-relevant) films.
>mfw "J-DAR" is a site made by Jews and not antisemites.
>tfw Tyler Perry get Oscar nominations for Madea's year later
It is very much in the vested interest of Academy voters, who have ties to the Hollywood film industry, to promote films from major studios with big name actors or directors. Anyone who appreciates cinema knows where to look.
>so much damage over niggers who in the first place would never actually watch the Oscars no matter how many niggers get nominated
Seriously fuck the Oscars, on the fact from now on they have to pander to these niggers instead of these nigger actually doing something worth watching
>getting nominated because youre black
isnt that really offensive?
Typical 4chan overraction. She's simply saying she wants more diversity amongst the Academy voters so that it's more indicative of the diversity of America's population (the academy is filled with 97% white voters, whereas white population in America is 65%). This really has nothing to do with the films produced
>there are cases of bad government treatment of Detroit's water supply and none of these niggers help out their fellow niggers who are being screwed by the government
>but it's more important to complain for a stupid show where the people who are complaining are pretty much has beens
Why is the news trying to tell me Jewish people are of European ancestry.
>(the academy is filled with 97% white voters, whereas white population in America is 65%
The academy is international. Europeans, Canadians, and Australians make up a decent percentage of them.
What percentage of Canadian and European film makers are black?
Being American-centric is a huge problem among the African Americans.
I mean that I believe the best choices were nominated. I didn't say black movies had no merit but that there were obviously better choices.
And I think it should be that way. Race shouldn't even be a factor like it is for university or job admissions.
The best person, regardless of race should be nominated. The academy shouldn't have to have some odd percentage of this race or that race.
If some years it means all whites, then w/e. The US and the West are overwhelmingly white. It isn't that surprising that they were the best represented and not like a trans-mulatto Zoroastrians.
What you want is some token head nod, which is how you treat kids (and really we shouldn't even do it then), but people in the professional world should act like adults.
>The voting is supposed to represent the industry not the US population
And again, these are international actors not just Americans.
For example, "best actress" category is traditionally dominated by women who are veterans of the british theater and the Royal Shakespeare Company in particular.
So you have this theater compnay in englandland that has been churning out world class actors and actresses for decades. The cream rise to the top, and then they come to America to become award winning actors.
American blacks will accuse this of being institutionalized racism. It obviously isn't.
No, it's still studio Jews giving out awards. Why don't the black people want to call them out?
Because they'll get the Mel Gibson treatment that's why. So they blame whitey instead. That's my only dog in the fight teebee8ch
They should go the way of the music industry :^)
>NBA full of blacks because they are the most talented
>Oscars are racist for the lack of diversity because no black people this year
The hypocrisy of the modern black is baffling to me.
Just to clarify further take a look at this years women nominees:
Kate Blanchett: Australian. Veteran of Sydney Theater Company
Charlotte Rampling: British. Cabaret background)
Saoirse Ronan: Irish. Irish TV background)
Brie Larson: Real name Brianne Sidonie Desaulniers. Her parents moved to American and French was her first language but she was raised in California. Theater background).
Jennifer lawrence: Normal all-American girl, no theater background
Blacks are already over-represented at the academy awards already when you factor in the international competition. Americans only make up a minority of the nominees and blacks make up a minority of that minority.
But what we consider gangsta rap was about social issues not spending money on junk. I wonder when blacks realized that their culture and dignity have been hijacked by the market into the utterly debasing shitfest it is today.
Gangsta rap was fucking cool but now I go to the hip hop channel on pandora or urban station and it's like...
pop music with a slightly harder electronic beat. Just horrible. Really really horrible.
It's like boy band shit but with a different style of synths.
>idris elba with a shitty african accent

oscars go to the best performances. there were no good ones from 'people of colour' this year.
is 2016 oscar the reddit of all oscars?
WE WUZ OSCA AN SHIT BEFORE THME WHITE HOMOS STOLE IT.
Does this whole debacle remind anyone of what Clinton said in that Simpsons episode 15 or so years ago?
>Thank you, Lisa, for teaching kids everywhere a valuable lesson: If things don't go your way, just keep complaining until your dreams come true
What a pussy cop out from the Academy. Why not just say the field was competitive and we believe the actors nominated were the more deserving? This desperate apology make them seem racist towards blacks and diminishes the achievement of the nominees. Fucking pathetic.
Blacks are better at making music, they always were
>mfw Beatles and Elvis just ripped off nigger songs
>mfw you are to stupid to appreciate or understand classical music the greatest music ever composed by man
>mfw you are a dumb frogposter
>"The Academy is taking dramatic steps to alter the makeup of our membership. In the coming days and weeks we will conduct a review of our membership recruitment in order to bring about much-needed diversity in our 2016 class and beyond,"
RIP in peace Oscars
Because at the end of the day Oscars don't determine what most people watch anymore and its all just a big get together party for the Hollywood rich and famous. They don't matter anymore.
Why should it be more diverse? If the best critics happen to be white, then so be it. Why should you put black people in there just so some sensitive morons don't feel bad? I don't give a fuck that NBA is mostly black.
It's pure jealousy
Jada has never made anything remotely worthy of recognition
Spike Lee only gets recognition BECAUSE he's black
And every single year Will Smiff has been nominated he's lost to ANOTHER BLACK ACTOR
