Bard Edlund, creator of this bleak video says:
“A lot of noise has been made about the lack of diversity among nominees for the Oscars this year. This video shows how many Black, Hispanic, and Asian winners there have been throughout history, across four main categories — best actor/actress, supporting actor/actress, writing (original and adapted screenplays), and directing.
“Determining race/ethnicity and assigning people to categories can be a rather dicey and imprecise activity. Some inaccuracies or points of contention must be expected.
“I took a chance when designing this: The video already includes the 2015 ceremony results. If Inarritu does not win Best Director, nor for best original screenplay, my video will not need to be updated. If he does, I will make the necessary change at my earliest convenience.”
