The year the Oscars relented- 2016 would be remembered for the barrage the Academy has taken after releasing the nominees list for the Academy Awards, which did not include a single non-white actor in the leading categories.


Many entertainers of colour have called for a boycott, including Will and Jada Pinkett Smith– whilst Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs has promised changes in the coming years.

The latest to add her voice to the calls for diversity is Hilary Rodham Clinton, US Democratic frontrunner for President. Hilary in an interview, agreed with those calling for changes at the top of the Academy, saying those were long overdue.

“I think that it is overdue,” Clinton told AOL in an interview Wednesday, “but the Academy announced that they’re going to be making some changes, as they should.”

“Just think of the great films that not only display the diversity of America, but the diversity of the human experience.

“The Academy has to catch up with our reality. I’m encouraging them, as I know so many others are, to really move as quickly as they can to make those changes,”
