The oscars have announced a bizarre new series of criteria for future films in order for them to be considered for the coveted ‘Best Picture’ award.

According to the new criteria, in order for a film to be eligible a certain percentage of lead and supporting actors must be from an “underrepresented group.”

As The Daily Wire reports:

On Tuesday, the Academy of Motion Picture Art and Sciences announced that for any film to be nominated for Best Picture starting in the year 2024, new standards of inclusion must be met.

“Those standards require one of the following: at least one of the lead actors or significant supporting actors is from an underrepresented racial or ethnic group; at least 30% of all actors in secondary and more minor roles are from certain underrepresented groups; or the main storyline, theme or narrative is centered on an underrepresented group,” The Los Angeles Times reported, adding:

To be eligible for best picture, a film must meet at least two standards across four categories: “Onscreen Representation, Themes and Narratives,” “Creative Leadership and Project Team,” “Industry Access and Opportunities” and “Audience Development.” Within each category are a variety of criteria …

Academy President David Rubin and Chief Executive Dawn Hudson stated, “The aperture must widen to reflect our diverse global population in both the creation of motion pictures and in the audiences who connect with them. The Academy is committed to playing a vital role in helping make this a reality. We believe these inclusion standards will be a catalyst for long-lasting, essential change in our industry.”

The new, Orwellian policy is essentially ‘affirmative action’ for Hollywood. Whether it will cause an decrease in the quality of new films made to fit the new, ‘inclusive’ standard remains to be seen.

Hollywood is a “make believe” world and they all live in a fantasy. The movie industry is in very bad shape because of all the liberal thinking so to even be making a movie will be a challenge. Now they come out with restrictions to cater to the idiots parading around for a cause of this or that. Good grief, when will those in charge put on their big boy pants and act like leaders rather than followers.

Until this nonsense is crushed into the ground it will only get worse. The trash we see on TV “peaceful protesting” will never change, never see the light. We have no idea how far the left will go. Very dangerous situation. Don’t know if it can be diffused.

Since they live in a fantasy world, well most of them, let them dream of when movies are made like they are dreaming and see if they still have a job. People don’t care what actors want out of a movie. They want to see what they want to see, and if it is not there they will watch someone who makes movies that doesn’t have an agenda or is overly vocal about their own opinions which don’t matter anyway.

Let us hope that the last industry to reopen in this pandemic shut down will be movie theaters, and that that won’t happen for another 20 years. Boycott Hollywood!!!

The movies that Hollywood makes these days are not even worth watching. It has been that way for the last few years. It doesn’t matter who is in them or what their skin color is. The movies now are made by people who don’t have much talent. It doesn’t matter who acts in them. They don’t seem to understand that the American people do not care what Hollywood thinks and we sure don’t want to see their clueless political beliefs in what they think is entertainment.

I HOPE ALL PROFESSIONAL SPORTS FAIL!
We’re all done here as well.

Well they just guaranteed I won’t be watching any of their movies from now on, I’m so sick of all the unrealistic diversity in movies and TV shows, I’m sad to say that if I even see a black face in the ads for the movie or show I won’t even read what It is any more.

If this and other articles weren’t written exposing this racism few would know because very few watch the disgusting self serving parasites pat themselves on the back anymore.

I hope that Antonio Sabato is successful with his production company. He wants to make great movies that we can all support. He’s a conservative, so he’s been black listed.
Our family will support his projects.

??? So they are discriminating against actors who aren’t dark-skinned, ok we get it. Since NO ONE CARES about Academy Awards anyway, the new set of guidelines will make the award show even less credible. It depends on the story—especially if based on a true story or is an era/historical picture based on real events at that point in time—and that should be the decider: the best actors and the best screenplay. If Hollywood were truly colorblind, it wouldn’t matter what color someone’s skin is, if they were the best than they get rewarded accordingly. This is hypocrisy at its finest.

So which best picture winning movies would not have made an Oscar by the new rules? How much will this change things?

These standards just go to show, “there ain’t no cure for stupid”. In my opinion, this is the death knell of the academy of awards. I will never again clamor to go and watch an AofW movie after this insanity.

Don’t have to have talent to get an Oscar, just come from the right clique of “actors”.

With such warped new ideas and rules Hollywood will surely lose a lot of revenue and kudos. I probably will be watching more Bollywood movies and other foreign productions, that are more fun…

I guess the only underrepresented actors will be white people when they are done with their idiotic “woke” rules… Guess I’ll be staying home instead of going to the movies…

Hollywood movies are already so bad with little entertainment value, lots of desensitizing the audience to violence, and lots of Leftist messages. And now they’re going to make them worse?

Soon there will be no sports, movies or musical entertainment without leftists and their BS so then we can get back to doing family things and enjoying life.
