      Antonio Banderas is a white European actor. And they've been nominated before . . .

                Everyone needs to watch Ricky Gervais hosting the Golden Globes. He literally said why does anyone care about these award shows and that the junk they get doesn’t matter. The recognition is great but when u put in context that most of the nominees put in a lot of money and promotion to get nominated it really make u think of the bribing that’s going on

                  I personally think we should stop caring about the Oscars and award show like that. They are biased and most of them are run by money and they don’t care. There literally was an article of some of the people on the academy that didn’t even WATCH some of the movies that THEY nominated. Honestly I feel that movies are for the people and I would appreciate an award but if the audience loved my movie that would mean so much more to me.

                    That girl was so right, am i getting an award because they need to award a latina, Whoopi Goldberg won best supporting actress for Ghost, she did a hell of a job and no one was fighting for diversity at that time.

                            Or stop watching the boring Oscars lol only reason I had watch the Oscars cause ellen D hosted it and that was the first time I was watching it lol I been a 90's head stuck on B.E.T at the time.. Watched the emmy's for the first time when the very funny tina fey and Amy P hosted it.. Truth is? Oscars and Emmy's suck without funny people and people need to stop lookin for validation cause you won't receive it there.. I always said if I was an actor I would play the trash can on the hungar games lol cause I don't care if I don't win the fake golden statue..

                              So now you got to just nominate someone cuz of their skin color? Jlo was just ok and Hustlers didn't deserve no nominations.

                                        I think the writers and directors for Hustlers deserved the nomination more than Jennifer Lopez did.

                                                    Adrienne said something so profound. There is a difference between getting an award because they truly thought it was Oscar worthy vs giving you one because of feeling the pressure to give you one and talking about you saying they really don't deserve it or don't want to.

I want an award to go the person(s) who performed best, not because of external pressure to give it to one person because of gender, race, orientation etc. And I’m tired of Oscar-bait roles and movies that don’t deserve it either (Green Book was so awful)

                                                                    However, I fee like J.Lo's performance wasn't Oscar-worthy. She was good but she wasn't great.
                                                                    People think A-list celebrities automatically deserve the best recognition because of their fame but a really good actor can sometimes be just ok in a role and not deserve an award for that role.

                                                                    • Andrea Palomino

JLO performance was average but because she was not nominated the oscars are not diverse enough? Thou I did want akwafina to be nominated.I understand and support that big movie companies should also consider the many good actresses, directors and producers that are left out ( doesn’t matter their ethnicity) but let’s not just simply ask to nominate any actor or actress just because of their race and just for pity. Why can’t we understand that there are going to be years when most of the movies nominated are going to be white? Maybe the next year the majority would be black or Latin or Asian. We can’t ask to have a quota, the past two years movies made by Latinos were at the top the game but now that a Latino or a black made movies are not nominated we call it that is not diverse enough, again what about parasite? We are selfish if we really want a change we need to understand that any change takes time and we can’t go around saying is unfair all the time , yes let’s support and talk about the change but don’t go around crying and take the credit from actors or directors or movies that actually do deserve to be in the spotlight. Let’s not ask for pity .

There’s so much more out there that doesn’t even get half a chance as Blacks and Hispanics do. When speaking of diversity seems like only two races get mentioned. Please don’t forget Indians, middle eastern, Pacific Islanders, Natives, etc.
