  • George Clooney Sounds Off on the Oscars

    For the second year in a row, #OscarsSoWhite has begun trending on Twitter after the nominees were announced since not one non-white person was nominated in any of the top categories. Now with many prolific Hollywood voices boycotting the eponymous awards show, actor George Clooney has sounded off on the situation as well. In an interview with Variety, Clooney said, "If you think back 10 years ago, the Academy was doing a better job. Think about how many more African Americans were nominated. I would also make the argument, I don’t think it’s a problem of who you’re picking as much as it is: How many options are available to minorities in film, particularly in quality films?"

  • George Clooney Speaks Out On Oscars Lack Of Diversity

    Mega-star George Clooney is the latest celebrity to criticize the Oscar's lack of diversity. On Monday Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee announced that they would be boycotting the Oscars, and now more stars are joining the conversation. Clooney told Variety that "we're moving in the wrong direction" when discussing the Oscars. The Academy seems to be moving backwards from 2004, when actors like Don Cheadle and Morgan Freeman were nominated for awards. He then name-checked several movies he thought were Oscar-worthy. Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs said she was "heartbroken" that people of color were excluded from this year's nominations.
