    88th Academy Awards Lack of Diversity?

    Black Host. Lack of diversity?

    Entire monologue dedicated to the pilght of the black actors. Lack of diversity?

    Black orchestra leader. Lack of diversity?

    Black Academy President. Lack of diversity?

    Numerous black presenters. Lack of diversity?

    Black Girl Scout troop sells cookies at Oscars and takes home over $65,000. Lack of diversity?

    Black History Month mentioned numerous times. Lack of diversity?

    Skit inseting black actors into nominated films. Lack of diversity?

    Morgan Freeman presenter of Best Motion Picture. Lack of diversity?

    The real lack of diversity was the lack of many other nationalities. I only saw one Asian presenter, and you did not see them whining. There were many other nationalities represented in various categories, however.

    No lack of diversity when it came to blacks IMO. Because there were no black actors nominated in the top four actor categories, they whine and whine and whine until an obvious imbalance toward blacks exists.

    All in all, a terrible 88th Academy Award presentation.

    Chris Rock said it best. When Will Smith got 20 million for The Wild, Wild West that was a problem.

    No black nominees for the second year straight. Lack of diversity.

    It shows quite clearly that civilisation has moved on from the days of the KKK hanging and burning people because of their skin colour.
    Thought Chris Rock was spot on with his critique.

    Perhaps the modern actors of colour or whatever the modern parlance is these days, just aint no damn good , or maybe they just get type cast in certain roles, eg chief of police , where they cannot shine.
    or could it be that they have just got lazy ?
    they would have to up their game if they brought back blacking up!

    I remember watching a 1970s ? comedy film , cannot remember if it was any good .
    About this white guy , played by a black guy whited up , who has a shower one morning and all the 'white' washes off him and he get treated different now hes a 'brother '
    anyone recall the name of it ?

    Watching a guy showering on film?

    Sounds more like one of your guilty flirtations with gay porn. Was there also someone inexplicably delivering him pizza in his bathroom?

    I watched Beverly hills Cop (again) last night and spotted a very young Chris rock. He had a part as a parking attendant at the Playboy mansion, one short line. Not even a credit on IMDb. 32 years ago.

    so who do the whiners say should have been nominated but was not? there's only about half a dozen decent black actors to start with.

    Without googling how many blind actors or disabled actors can you name? (Stephen Baldwin doesn't count as disabled just because he's a right-wing maniac unless you allow Gary Busey who is just a maniac)

    You have no clue who I really am, so how can you label me? It shows your diminished intellect.

    Just for the hell of it, I Googled "Good young black movie actors or actresses". Opened a link with the top 40.

    I'd heard of about 4. None of the four particularly impressive.

    All the old greats are just that - old.

    Like me.
