Oscars President Responds to All-White Nominations Controversy After Calls To Boycott Ceremony

The Oscars president Cheryl Boone Isaacs is "heartbroken and frustrated" by the all-white nominations list for this year's acting awards.



The head of the Academy has spoken out following the controversy with Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith amongst those boycotting next months' ceremony in protest and insisted the organisation will review its "membership recruitment".



She wrote in a statement:
"I’d like to acknowledge the wonderful work of this year’s nominees. While we celebrate their extraordinary achievements, I am both heartbroken and frustrated about the lack of inclusion. This is a difficult but important conversation, and it’s time for big changes. The Academy is taking dramatic steps to alter the makeup of our membership....

"In the coming days and weeks we will conduct a review of our membership recruitment in order to bring about much-needed diversity in our 2016 class and beyond.”

"As many of you know, we have implemented changes to diversify our membership in the last four years," she continued, admitting change couldn't come fast enough. "We recognize the very real concerns of our community, and I so appreciate all of you who have reached out to me in our effort to move forward together.”

    1. It's not watery. It's very thick. As in 'shaking bottle up and down to remove cream' kinda thick. It's made that way so you can 'dissolve' it with the serum. If you didn't buy the serum you have wasted ya money. So go and buy the serum to dissolve it. Errr... If you bought a watery one it's fake.

      Delete
    2. If you didn't buy the serum and you're not using sunscreen and other sun protection measures, it will make you dark because such creams increase your skins susceptibility to sunburn. Plus, if you're not exfoliating while using it you're also wasting your money.

      Delete
    3. Anony,it is not watery oooh.Very thick something. Similar to Franchoise Bedon.

      You need to get the Exfoliating shower gel.

      This is what is written on it....Patricia Reynier-Innovation. Shower cream gel.Exfoliating and toning with carrot extract.

      You also need the serum too.

    1. Help me ask Stella o? What is 'mature' about this response? Na because she jam your brain with grammar wey your Nigerian actors no fit speak?

      if notable celebrities hadn't complained would she have said anything? And every year must you discuss problems? At what point do you intend to discuss the solutions? Abeg leave trash for whoever picks trash in the US.

    1. Its cos of d oscars dats y dey came up wit d BET award. D latin americans also have their own as well.

    2. And that statement is from a graduate. You can understand why education in Nigeria is like kalu kalu.

      That is how one bv, Olivia silk, was asking why Empire wasn't getting an Oscar Buahahahahahahaaaaaaa

      Delete
    3. I don't believe you typed this
      Bet awards and Oscar awards are not the same
      Oscar, golden globes and the likes are the same
      Bet is an all black entertainment TV so you don't expect white winners

      But Oscar is for all top movies produced and acted that year..

      Some of you are plainly daft

  15. Ode..BET means Black Entertainment..so y should white win awards? Besides their award ceremony stemmed from the continuous overlooking their black artist...

    I totally support a boycott whether they have a
    Olivia's or not...they knew what they were doing ...even when they give d black actors or actresses the awRd ta for a silly movie...remember Halle Berry and monsters ball? As in.... And when they wanted to give my be.oved Denzel it was for training day which I personally do not think it was his best movie his far...when Hurricane was there...

    We are in trouble o..black people..we need to support each other..
