    My question is WHYYYYY are the oscars still considered by us as so distinguished? Why are we trying to get that statue??? Why are we seeking that panels validation since 1929? Here’s an idea let’s put more of our money, ad and support behind bet awards or naacp awards where we celebrate ALL black white Asian etc and make the oscars officially redundant

      How did jlo NOT get an Oscar nomination for Hustlers. Maybe cause it’s based on true events and some of those Male Oscar panelist’s know someone who knew someone caught in those rooms! See the film hahaha

                  Why do they not look at race and just look at a movie for what it is. Literally movies that no one has ever even heard of much less seen are nominated and that is just disrespectful. The Oscars is run by biased people that don’t care about how good a movie is most of the academy doesn’t even WATCH the movies that they nominate they only care about money.

                              I am Nigerian and I think it is also important to note that the Netflix Original Movie "Lionheart" was disqualified from even having the chance to be nominated for the International Category because they was "too much english" in it. When the official language in Nigeria is English. As an African Country we would never have the opportunity to have any of our movies nominated in the "main" categories so to have that taken away even in the category that we have been relegated to is horrendous

                                              I admire Jlo for her hard work and discipline... but c’mon... she’s an awful singer and a cheesy overly rehearsed actress. The Asian girl on hustlers did a wayyyyy better job than Jlo. The Asian girl deserves an award.

                                                    A few years ago there was 6 black actors nominated a few years ago. These award shows are not diverse every year but in the long term they are. Mahershala Ali just won his second win last year. Regina King also won last year which makes 50% of the acting winners black. Green Book, Blackkklansman and Black Panther were all nominated for Best Picture. Representation is there if you want to see it.

                                                        Africa has loads of award shows celebrating there films but there not really diverse same goes for the Chinese and Bollywood and so on.

                                                          no one talked about how lupita got ignored for her acting in US. she was SNUBBED hard this award season

                                                            I feel like Amanda needs to mature a bit. Her expressions and passiveness is just so childish. Everytime she speaks she spits facts but when she’s waiting for her turn it’s like a 3 year old that can’t keep still.

                                                              Should nominations he based on performance or skin color, gender and sexual orientation?

                                                              This show lacks diversity. Where is the white person? Or does diversity only mean as many non white people as possible, even if there are none?

                                                                There's ethnic diversity, as well, not just racial diversity. Focusing solely on black people isn't "diversity." That's lack of thereof, that's narcissism. You win an Oscar for your performance. That's it. .__.

The system itself was built off of people who SYSTEMATICALLY CHOSE WHOS PERFORMANCE WAS VALID AND WHOS IS NOT. You obviously have no ears or eyes because the stats on white control over the oscars is outrageous and it’s still the same in the White House, in senate, in HOR, in courts, in positions of power. Anyways, this is a small piece of the whole problem of the “American” racist culture that was supported by racist laws and court cases.
