Idris Elba Addresses UK Parliament About Diversity in TV & Film!

Idris Elba

On January 18th, Actor Idris Elba addressed the United Kingdom’s Parliament on the subject of diversity – specifically, on the diversity (and/or lack of same) in British film and television. True, it was a speech in regard to diversity in British film and television, but change the names of the organizations he mentions and it applies to the North American industry as well.

He spoke at length, using himself as an example at one point of how one person, or one organization, can impact the lives of many by putting someone from their demographic on television or into a movie – or just into a position from which they can take that next step.

Follow the jump to read his full address. It’s powerful stuff.

It’s The 2016 Oscars® Nominations!

tmb296_oscar

The Oscar® nominations were announced this morning and the Academy of Film Arts & Sciences did their usual job of mixing brilliant choices and WTF ones. Most were easy to see coming – The Martian and The Revenant picking up multiple noms; Stars Wars: The Force Awakens getting only a couple of tech nods – but in a year with so many great movies, how is it that there are only eight nominations for Best Picture? That makes no sense at all – I could name a handful of movies that would be as good as, or better than the official selections.

In terms of numbers, The Revenant led with 12 nominations, with Mad Max: Fury Road grabbing ten.

So! The Academy has spoken. For the complete (with occasional commentary) follow the jump.

Chris Rock will host the the 88th Academy Awards, live on ABC, on Sunday, February 24th.
