Due to the outbreak this year of the scandal with the awarding of the Academy award it was decided to change the composition of the eat of the competition, so everything was fair and square. Western media reported that the film Academy has attracted 683 new member into its ranks, thus lowering the number of “white” to 89%.
46% of the invited women (a nod to the feminists), and 41% of people with non-white skin color”. The ranks of the jury members were Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, mark Rylance, brie Larson, Emma Watson, Alicia Vikander and many others, among which the Russian producer Alexander Rodnyansky, head of the company “Non-stop production”.
Recall that the scandal surrounding the Academy awards this year arose from the fact that the nomination did not get a single black actor. Many artists saw this as racial discrimination, and the wife of will Smith jada Pinker Smith even called for a boycott of the event.
