Para ganar en los Oscars habrá que cumplir "criterios de diversidad"

La Academia de las Artes y Ciencias Cinematográficas busca nuevos criterios que entren en vigencia para la ceremonia de 2022 de los Oscars.

La organización que entrega los premios de la Academia dijo el viernes que formará un grupo para “desarrollar guías sobre la diversidad y la inclusión” que deberán ser cumplidas por los cineastas para que sus obras sean elegibles para los Oscars.

A CREDIT TO THE MOTION PICTURE INDUSTRY: Hattie McDaniel, the first African American Oscar winner, was born on this day in 1893. Her portrayal of ‘Mammy’ in GONE WITH THE WIND (1939) won Best Supporting Actress over co-star Olivia deHavilland in the same category. ..In her acceptance speech, McDaniel stated: "I shall always hold it as a beacon for anything I may be able to do in the future. I sincerely hope that I shall always be a credit to my race and the motion picture industry." McDaniel then was escorted, not to the GONE WITH THE WIND table — where producer David O. Selznick sat with deHavilland and his two Oscar-nominated leads, Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable — but to a small table set against a far wall, where she took a seat with her escort, F.P. Yober, and her white agent, William Meiklejohn. With The Ambassador Hotel’s strict no-blacks policy, Selznick had to call in a special favor just to have McDaniel allowed into the building (it was officially integrated by 1959, when the Unruh Civil Rights Act outlawed racial discrimination in California). ..That evening, McDaniel wore a rhinestone-studded turquoise gown with white gardenias in her hair. Seventy years later in 2010, a blue-gown–and white-gardenia–clad Mo'Nique (one of 11 black actors to win Academy Awards since), paid homage to McDaniel while accepting her Best Supporting Actress Oscar for Lee Daniels' PRECIOUS. ..McDaniel passed away in 1952 - her final wish to buried in the Hollywood Forever Cemetery denied because of its segregation policy. Decades later, a marble memorial to McDaniel was placed there. She left her Oscar to Howard University - but it was deemed valueless by appraisers and later went missing from the school — and has remained so for more than 40 years. ..#hattiemcdaniel #blacklivesmatter #blm #gonewiththewind #pioneer #pioneerwoman #academyawards #oscars #oscarwinner #davidoselznick #vivienleigh #oliviadehavilland #dameoliviadehavilland #precious #monique #gay #instagay #gayicon #oldhollywoodglamour #oldhollywood #oldhollywoodglam #classichollywood #classichollywoodactress #vintagehollywood #vintagehollywoodglamour @yours_retro

La Academia de las Artes y Ciencias Cinematográficas, que ha sido criticada por premiar a pocas películas y creadores de minorías, dijo que esta decisión, junto a otras medidas, representan una nueva fase en el marco de un esfuerzo de cinco años para “promover la diversidad”.

El grupo dijo en un comunicado que trabajará con el Sindicato de Productores de Estados Unidos para crear un grupo especial de líderes de la industria que desarrolle para el 31 de julio “estándares de representación e inclusión” para ser elegibles para los Oscars y que “incentiven las prácticas de contratación justas dentro y fuera de la pantalla”.

Las reglas no aplicarán para las películas que aspiren a los Oscars en la próxima ceremonia de 2021. Las críticas contra la Academia se intensificaron en 2015 con la etiqueta #OscarsSoWhite (#OscarTanBlancos) en protesta por unos candidatos que eran blancos en su totalidad.

La Academia respondió en parte duplicando el número de mujeres y gente de color en sus filas de invitados. Pese a todo, en 2019, solo el 32% de sus casi 8 mil miembros eran mujeres y el 16% era miembros de minorías. Los nuevos miembros serán anunciados el próximo mes.

“Sabemos que hay mucho más trabajo por hacer para garantizar oportunidades equitativas en general”, dijo el presidente ejecutivo de la Academia, Dawn Hudson. “La necesidad de abordar este asunto es urgente”.

Entre otras nuevas medidas, la Academia presentará 10 candidatos anuales a la mejor película, en lugar de un número fluctuante de hasta una decena, para que más filmes tengan la posibilidad de alzarse con el premio más prestigioso de la industria.
