2021 Oscars Was Finally Diverse But Is It A One-Time Thing?
People of color were celebrated at the 2021 Oscars, is this the beginning?
Sunday night’s Oscar ceremony was one of the most diverse groups of people and it was amazing, but this was only one time. We loved that the Oscar finally did something about recognizing people of color, but for years the movie industry has been fighting for this, and to any one of color, they don’t trust the Oscars.
We had an in-depth discussion with some of our close friends and they felt that this was a “burn year for the movie industry, so why not celebrate people of color.” Check out the highlights from the 2021 Oscars and see how diverse it was…
CelebnMusic247.com understands where they are coming from and we ask this, “will the Oscars do next year as well? Will they celebrate all films from all backgrounds or will we hear that same old poor excuse, there were no good black films this year.”
This is the question at hand, what will the Oscars do when they are back at Hollywood and Highland? Will the Oscars go back to their old ways? Will we see 1 or 2 black nominees in a sea of white people?
The 93rd Annual Oscars recognized various people of color through historic wins last night (April 25th).
The Academy Awards have long been known for their exclusivity regarding the recognition of nonwhite creatives’ film-based contributions, bringing about the #OscarsSoWhite hashtag back in early 2016.
Last night, it was great to see so much diversity, for example, last night’s Oscars is Nomadland director Chloé Zhao, who is the first woman of color to win in the Best Director category and the second Asian woman to win Best Picture.
Then, Ma Rainey‘s Black Bottom also won within the Best Costume Design and Best Makeup and Hairstyling categories. The latter win made stylists Mia Neal and Jamika Wilson the first Black winners within the category.
We hope this is the beginning of diversity for the Oscars. Despite the ceremony being somewhat of a snore, we loved to see Daniel Kaluuya win for his role in Judah and The Black Messiah. As well as all the other wins for people of color. So Oscars we are watching you, is this just a one-time thing to calm the black film industry or will you keep to this change?
