The Oscars aren't perfect but they are not racist. It's not their fault more white actors acted better then black actors this year. This is a place where 12 Years a Slave won Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay...all these people who won were black
I think anyone who takes the Oscars seriously is more of a joke than the awards themselves. It's clearly a popularity contest and nothing more than that when you have movies like Gravity receiving multiple awards for being "realistic" when NASA and Neil deGrasse Tyson have claimed the movie is far from it, and I think it was the most overrated film of that year. Leonardo Dicaprio and Christian Bale are two of the most talented actors of our generation, and they have yet to receive an Oscar because the judging is garbage. You make a controversial movie about slavery, homosexuality, or discrimination, and you receive an award. You make a movie with an interesting plot, great acting, amazing cinematography and you get snubbed. I believe they should have it where you can only win an award once, and if you want more awards you have to win an award for a different genre or category. Say Tom Hanks wins Best Male Actor in a Drama for a film in 2015, he should not be able eligible for the same award, and should have to go on to Comedy, Action, or other genres to be eligible for an award if the movie is nominated. I feel like that would actually change the Oscars, and really make it more focused on recognizing the talent and diversity of actors rather than how popular their movie was for that year.
