Many people the movie world are angry that Hollywood and the movie industry are run "old white men". People complained the Oscar nominations came last Thursday because all 20 the actors in a chance of winning an Oscar are white. addition, there are no women the directing or writing categories. The Los Angeles Times newspaper carried a survey in 2012 on who the members the Academy are. The members are the people who choose the men and women who are nominated an Oscar. The LA Times survey found that the members the academy were 94 per cent white, largely male, an average age 62. Critics say this means there is too little diversity the Oscars.

Civil rights campaigner Al Sharpton was one the biggest critics the Academy. He complained that: "The movie industry is like the Rocky Mountains - the higher you get, the whiter it gets." He added that: "The lack diversity in [the] Oscar nominations is [terrible]." He said it was strange that one the movies nominated this year's 'Best Picture' award, 'Selma,' was about racism, but none the actors in Selma nor any non-white actors other movies were for an award. Cheryl Boone Isaacs, president of the Academy, said the members do their best to nominate the best people, regardless their colour or gender. However, she did say that she hoped Hollywood would become more diverse.
