WHAT, IF ANYTHING, DOES THE CURRENT HOLLYWOOD FILM INDUSTRY LACK?
The biggest story at the moment is the Oscars nominations list which has been called racist by many because of the lack of diversity due to there being no nominations of colour. I believe that the Oscars aren’t to blame but the lack of Interesting and substantial roles for minority groups like stereotyping Asians as nerds, Hispanic maids and the funny sick kick who are African-American. Conversely television is has more diversity and dynamic role for actors of colour. Such as Violia davis who is from Television and landed herself on the cover of Hollywood Vanity Fair which is the first time since 1999 to have a black women on the cover and the first over 30.
We shouldn’t just be focusing on Hollywood being racist but sexist and ageist.
