The Golden Globes need to do a better job of nominating women and non-whites, filmmaker Jennifer Siebel Newsom told Jorge Ramos on Thursday.
“It’s not representing the full spectrum of our country,” she said Thursday on “AMERICA with Jorge Ramos.” “Really, it’s quite disturbing and we have to do something about it.”
She’s not the only one who’s noticed. An article on Bustle.com recently torched the awards, and the industry in general:
“The majority of nominations are still held by white men and white women, and the director and screenplay categories, historically and presently, are almost entirely filled by white men,” wrote Kelsea Stahler. “It’s a stark, disheartening representation of the industry’s most prized talents, and unfortunately, it appears that there’s still much progress to be made.”
