Did Academy Award Nominations Deserve #WhiteOscars Outrage?

15 January 2015 5:56 PM, PST | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Twitter erupted in hashtag outrage today over the overwhelming whiteness of 2015’s Academy Award nominations. But should that have been a surprise? Yes, last year’s trophy show was a triumph for 12 Years A Slave, the first Best Picture winner directed by a black filmmaker, as well as a landmark win for Best Supporting Actress Lupita Nyong’o. But the Oscars, like the film industry itself, always have been a predominantly white (and male) concern, in stark contrast to the diversity of the moviegoing public.

With Monday’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday looming — today is his actual birthday — the #WhiteOscars and #OscarsSoWhite hashtags ranged from irate to hilariously on point over the fact that only one minority filmmaker (Birdman‘s Alejandro González Iñárritu) and zero women were nominated this year in the writing and directing categories.

The backlash was only so loud because hopes were so high for Selma going into nominations morning. »
