The recent Oscar nominations are being heavily criticized for the lack of people of color nominated for acting roles and behind the scenes positions; in addition to women being snubbed again for Best Director.

Murray unpacks what the Oscars has done to try and become a more diverse organization overall and overcome the #OscarsSoWhite backlash from 2016, and how the consistent omission of women stands in direct opposition of the Time’s Up movement and the growing practice from certain stars to have inclusive riders in their studio deals.
