Will Smith, su esposa Jada Pinkett Smith y el cineasta Spike Lee, no estarán presente en la 88 edición de los premios Oscar, porque consideran que entre los nominados no existe diversidad racial.  

 

Al igual que en la entrega pasada todos los nominados en las distintas categorías interpretativas son actrices y actores blancos. Al respecto, Smith dijo: "Nos incomodaría estar ahí y sugerir que eso está bien (…) no tiene que ver conmigo (…) es por los niños que se van a sentar y ver un espectáculo en el que no van a estar representados", agregó.

 

De igual forma, su esposa expresó: “Tenemos que estar al frente. Tenemos que liderar. Creo que en términos de inclusión, debemos traer las historias y las ideas de todo tipo de gente a la mesa. Para mí es muy importante lograr un Hollywood más diverso y hermoso del que encontré", aseguró Jada Pinkett Smith.

 

Por su parte, el cineasta Spike Lee expresó a través de las redes sociales “No podemos respaldar esta gala. No queremos faltar al respeto ni a su presentador, Chris Rock, ni al productor, Reginald Hudlin, ni a la presidenta de la Academia, Cheryl Boone Isaacs (…) pero ¿cómo es posible que por segundo año consecutivo los veinte candidatos a los premios a las mejores interpretaciones sean blancos?....”, escribió.

 

Lee agregó, “…El Dr. King dijo: ‘Llega un momento en que uno debe tomar una posición que no es ni segura, ni política, ni popular, pero la debe tomar, porque la conciencia le dice que es correcto’. Durante demasiados años, cuando revelan las nominaciones a los Oscar suena el suena teléfono de mi oficina con los medios que me pide mi opinión sobre la falta de afroamericanos y este año no fue diferente…”, sentenció el cineasta.

#OscarsSoWhite... Again. I Would Like To Thank President Cheryl Boone Isaacs And The Board Of Governors Of The Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts And Sciences For Awarding Me an Honorary Oscar This Past November. I Am Most Appreciative. However My Wife, Mrs. Tonya Lewis Lee And I Will Not Be Attending The Oscar Ceremony This Coming February. We Cannot Support It And Mean No Disrespect To My Friends, Host Chris Rock and Producer Reggie Hudlin, President Isaacs And The Academy. But, How Is It Possible For The 2nd Consecutive Year All 20 Contenders Under The Actor Category Are White? And Let's Not Even Get Into The Other Branches. 40 White Actors In 2 Years And No Flava At All. We Can't Act?! WTF!! It's No Coincidence I'm Writing This As We Celebrate The 30th Anniversary Of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's Birthday. Dr. King Said "There Comes A Time When One Must Take A Position That Is Neither Safe, Nor Politic, Nor Popular But He Must Take It Because Conscience Tells Him It's Right". For Too Many Years When The Oscars Nominations Are Revealed, My Office Phone Rings Off The Hook With The Media Asking Me My Opinion About The Lack Of African-Americans And This Year Was No Different. For Once, (Maybe) I Would Like The Media To Ask All The White Nominees And Studio Heads How They Feel About Another All White Ballot. If Someone Has Addressed This And I Missed It Then I Stand Mistaken. As I See It, The Academy Awards Is Not Where The "Real" Battle Is. It's In The Executive Office Of The Hollywood Studios And TV And Cable Networks. This Is Where The Gate Keepers Decide What Gets Made And What Gets Jettisoned To "Turnaround" Or Scrap Heap. This Is What's Important. The Gate Keepers. Those With "The Green Light" Vote. As The Great Actor Leslie Odom Jr. Sings And Dances In The Game Changing Broadway Musical HAMILTON, "I WANNA BE IN THE ROOM WHERE IT HAPPENS". People, The Truth Is We Ain't In Those Rooms And Until Minorities Are, The Oscar Nominees Will Remain Lilly White. (Cont'd)
