    It’s framed like that because of Amero-centric view. In America, dirversity boils down to that. Which is why Oscar predictors get shocked over and over when when winners don’t reflect the (mostly American social media and American media) demand for more black wins. International members couldn’t be bothered and they are also the reason for Asian wins surge of late. That’s something diversity demander didn’t count on, that international members couldn’t be guilt-tripped into voting according to American standard of diversity. Look what happeend with BAFTA. They created a jury with the goal to enfore American view on diversity so Actress line-up was designed to eek a victory for one of actresses who weren’t McDormand or Kirby. BAFTA flat out ignored it and voted for McDormand. They voted for Hopkins. It isn’t their problem and all the Americna hand-wringing wasn’t going to change that especially if they liked other performers better. Which they did. Kaluuya won because voters felt he was the best in his category. Ditto Youn. Ditto Zhao. They didn’t think Boseman, Davis and Day were in theirs so they didn’t win. It’s very simple. Now what isn’t simple is that so-called narratives try to force wins for lesser performances by taking attention away from (lacking) performance and putting the emphasis on something unrelated. Overdue for a win because of body of work (even though voters vote for the performance at hand not for what happened 20-30 years ago and performance that’s being judged ins’t the best in the category). Would be the second [insert minority] actress to win the category (although the actress put a low effort to transorm with fatsuit and lipsynch in a borederline supporting role that wasn’t even the best thing about her not-so-good movie let alone in her category). has died young and won’t be able to win again (even though he wasn’t even the second best in his category that also boasts a contender with GOAT reviews unmatched in years let alone last year). So when these lesser performances rightfully lose, their stans pull up race or other card not because they really believe it but because their “narrative” push didn’t fool AMPAS who saw through it and voted for who they thought was the best.

    What a well-put post. Well done!

    Something not so related to diversity at the Oscars. I don’t know how but they should force voters to actually watch the movies, especially for categories below the line, for example for Best Animated Feature it always seems to win the most popular by default, usually Pixar, not that Pixar is bad but the race would be so much interesting if they paid attention to other movies. This goes also for categories like Documentary or International.

    Another thing that I don’t know how to change is the relevancy of campaigning, it shouldn’t be so relevant, I know Hollywood is an industry but its sad how much the campaign of a movie matters over the quality itself.

    One of her grandmothers is Dominguez…
    it is odd, but it is true.
    Look at Cameron Diaz, she doesnt look at all latinx, but she is.
    Even Zoe Saldaña.

    and Gina Rodriguez, Ana Ortiz… they might look latinx, but they dont speak a word of spanish… shameful.

    Please stop saying black people need to diversify their roles in order to win, they have done so and the academy has shunned those performances. Stop saying AMPAS does not make movies, they do, members of the academy are industry professionals who work in the industry. The international voters argument doesn’t hold water, you’re saying they dont care about narratives when white people keep on winning career Oscar’s left right and centre. The question is what is the academy’s problem and we all know the answer RACISM.

    You can’t guilt-trip 6000+ people into voting your way if they think someone else is better. There. It’s been years since this same screaming didn’t produce results in categories where voters liked other performers more. And it’s going to stay that way. if they like it the most, they’ll vote. Otherwise no.

    I wonder who has you picked in the acting cathegories this year and the previous years. And tell me, how many times you have not selected a person of color when it was possible?

    Maybe you are the one who is racist…
