Oscars 2016 has been spun with controversies, disagreements and disparity! Expressing her opinion over the Academy Awards and race was renowned actress Charlotte Rampling. The veteran actress stated that #OscarsSoWhite movement is “racist to whites.” She was of the opinion that perhaps the black actors did not deserve to make the final list.
Rampling who is nominated in the Best Actress category for her performance in 45 years was very up-front and straight in expressing her views. However, as soon as the controversial claim witnessed mass fury, the individualistic actress issued a press statement indicating her comments were misinterpreted. She explained that diversity in industry was an important issue and was extremely delighted by the changes announced by the academy to diversify its membership.
While we love to agree to this opinion, we wonder what Rampling meant by the phrase ‘racist to whites’!
