After a lot of backlash on social media for the lack of diversity (for the second year in a row) on the Oscars 2016 nominee list, the Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs has released a statement.
She said to Deadline “Of course I am disappointed, but [it is] not to take away the greatness (of the films nominated). This has been a great year in film, it really has across the board. You are never going to know what is going to appear on the sheet of paper until you see it. We have got to speed it up.”
