To think if the people who pick are white men then the only people who will get nominated are going to be white men

Even charlottes nomination was a long time coming ffs

Even the head of itv has said that she cannot regularly cast black and Asian actors in lead dramas because she cannot re sell that drama on to the rest of Europe and Russia

I think she's a bit of a Nob to be honest white actors do not face the vitriol that balck actors face

Think

Hunger games the little black girl that was cast was a big issue

Star Wars

There was a film idris elbea was in there was a big thing about people not wanting to play the role and when there is actually a black super hero green lantern they cast a white actor

Bar
Hancock and blade and cat women there has not been another black or ethic minority super hero gurr bug bear over

Name more than two black Disney princess out of how many

I agree with you that Charlotte Rampling is a knob...the other stuff not so much...

Also there are a fair few black super heroes if you like comic books x

YANBU - I was quite shocked at the intellectual parity of her argument.

Paucity - damn auto correct

But I am not talking about playing supporting roles I am talking about lead roles

I don't know about the us but here it's very clear back and Asian actors have to go to the us before they will get any were Even the actress in James Bond who plays money penny says she still struggles to get roles in the uk her name is Naomi I think

That's crazy the boss of itv has said she cannot cast black and Asian actors in lead roles

The joke about no one black being allowed on to until Lenny Henry dies dosent come from no were

It's not even just black actors disabled actors are almost invisible I am always very schooled when they get non disabled actors to play disabled

The reason why glee was so talked about because you pretty much don't see Down syndrome actors unless it's to play the "poor special needs child"

I can barely find the words to express my utter disdain for the argument that it's reverse racism to do anything about proper, actual racism.

As a women she should appalled that she gets paid less than her male counter parts I believe this has been also talked about
