The topic for your first blog entry is:
“What, if anything, does the current Hollywood film industry lack?”
* * *
Earlier this month, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences came under fire for the lack of ethnic diversity about its Oscar nominees. On Friday, the Academy announced “it would make radical changes to its voting requirements, recruiting process and governing structure, with an aim toward increasing the diversity of its membership.”
What do you think about this issue? Will the changes lead to better things for the film industry? What about for movie-goers?
Do you agree that Hollywood has a race problem? Why or why not?
Is there anything you wish Hollywood offered more of, in terms of subject matter, casting and anything else? Explain.
Remember – when you post to include your name and the topic in your title!! For example Miss Quinlan – “What, if anything, does the current Hollywood film industry lack?”
Happy writing 🙂
