Oscar voters in the Motion Picture Academy

https://www.statista.com/statistics/321291/voters-academy-awards-ethnicity/ .


The distribution of voters at the Academy Awards in 2020 showed that the vast majority of voters were white, with just 16 percent of minority members. This is despite the Academy having vowed to increase the diversity of its members, a topic which has circulated in the media for several years. The '#OscarsSoWhite' hashtag on Twitter gained enough traction to draw attention to the whiteness (and maleness) of the Academy Awards, and the movement is still considered relevant this year as groups around the world seek increased representation and recognition.
