in light of tonight’s events, i’d like to remind you that “the Academy is 94% white, 77% male, 14% under the age of 50, and has a median age of 62. In addition, 33% of members are previous winners or nominees of Academy Awards themselves.”
so if the actor/actress/film you’re expecting to win ends up second, don’t be confused. what i’m implying is that awards don’t go to people because they deserve them, but because a committee has made the decision based on personal bias. not always, but often, and a simple look at the academy awards’ history will show it.
just ask hitchcock. or kubrick. or dicaprio.
