Diversity and the oscars – starting to change?

by on July 17, 2015

I’m not a big fan of the ‘infographic’ but I found these breakdowns of the make up of the Motion Picture Academy quite fascinating – and not just from an age perspective.  Provided in this article in The Hollywood Reporter the academy is keen to emphasis its increasing diversity, and as also discussed in a separate piece in The Hollywood Reporter, more international.

What is interesting here though is not just the breakdowns but the choice of categories and their use across these infographics.  Taking age as an example, some age categories do not even appear across all of these divisions.  And wouldn’t it be fascinating to see the age/gender intersection for example!  (Please see The Hollywood Reporter for full details of this analysis)
