Hollywood Reporter in trouble for showing 8 white actresses

  • Eight of the most acclaimed actresses grace the cover of the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter, and there isn't a minority in the bunch.

    The lack of diversity, the magazine explained, is merely a reflection of this year's pool of Academy Award contenders.

    "The awful truth is there are no minority actresses in genuine contention for an Oscar this year," wrote Stephen Galloway, THR's executive editor of features.

    The cover features a mix of current Oscar contenders and previous best actress winners: Cate Blanchett, Helen Mirren, Jennifer Lawrence, Charlotte Rampling, Carey Mulligan, Kate Winslet, Brie Larson and Jane Fonda.
    It's a part of THR's "roundtable" series, which Galloway described as a "defining element of [THR's] awards coverage through the Emmy and Oscar seasons."

    In his essay, which was published Wednesday, Galloway took a plaintive view on the subject. He celebrated the women featured on the cover, calling them "eight of the most talented actresses alive." But Galloway said he couldn't "ignore the fact that every one of these women was white -- whether old or young, English, Australian or American."

    "That was appalling," Galloway wrote.

    So who's at fault?

    Galloway said he and his colleagues deserve some blame. He pointed to a previous directors "roundtable" in which he excluded the African-American filmmaker F. Gary Gray.
    But Galloway said the lion's share of responsibility falls on the Hollywood studios that create and cast the movies.
    "Speak to the executives that run the industry, and they say they want change," he wrote. "But there are hardly any black film executives, and too few producers. Black directors? Not enough -- and certainly not black women directors."
    "If there were far more minority men and women to choose from, this sort of hand-wringing would never exist. And it's about time it changed," Galloway wrote.
    The latest THR issue comes on the heels of an announcement from the magazine last week that it will no longer rank women in its annual media "power" lists.

  • So it's an off (or slow) year for minority actresses in terms of Oscar nominees. It's just one year, 2015. Big deal, right?

    I don't see the problem.

    But no, they make a huge deal out of it. You can *never* in any case show a 100% "white bread" collection of individuals in any advertisement or magazine. (Unless it's just one person being displayed; they make an exception for that.)

    The magazine has to apologize, get all defensive, and will probably have to do "political correctness" penance of some kind to atone, if the magazine is to continue.

    Why?

    If we're all supposed to be color blind, what is the big deal? Do you really think this magazine is made up of KKK members from the backwoods of Alabama? Seriously? I'm sure a quick perusal of past issues of the magazine would quickly put this notion to rest.

    Why is there such enforcement of political correctness?

    This guy runs a magazine, but he has a lot to learn.

    There aren't enough blacks in Hollywood "leadership positions" because Jews aren't of African descent. American Jews are almost exclusively Khazars from Russia, and those people have white skin. It's common knowledge (for smart, well-informed people at least) that Hollywood is run by Jews.

  • Good point.  I'm sick of taking the rap for Jews.  Blame the white man.  They're all Jews.  Blame the Jews, but that's racist.

    By the way, I have never seen any of these actresses.  I wouldn't know the first name of even one of them.  And if it was a beauty contest, they're all duds.
    We conclude logically that religion can give an efficacious and truly realistic answer to the great modern problems only if it is a religion that is profoundly lived, not simply a superficial and cheap religion made up of some vocal prayers and some ceremonies...

    You've never seen or heard of Jane Fonda?  She was a traitor in the Vietnam war, IRL.

    I couldn't pick any of them out of a lineup either.

    I've heard of Jane Fonda "Hanoi Jane" but that was before my time -- it was so notorious that my elders taught me that nickname for her. But I still couldn't identify her, or pick her out of a lineup.

    All of the others, I couldn't tell you what movie they starred in or anything.

    Most of them are "old" in my book. And even the two young-ish ones are so-so at best, in my opinion. Strictly limiting the discussion to the physical level, they're not my type.

    If we bring in morality, religion, etc. then we're not even in the same ballpark.

    I've heard the name before, sure.  Neil, I am 32 years old and I haven't owned a TV since 2009 and even then I barely used it.

  • Everyone in Hollywood is a clone . All the one's in the public eye have been vetted so they never stray from the liberal narrative.  

    This story showed up on my Twitter feed:

    Quote
    Jennifer Lawrence tells Vogue magazine that Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis, who was jailed in September for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, makes her feel “embarrassed to be from Kentucky.”

    “Don’t even say her name in this house,” said Lawrence. “All those people holding their crucifixes, which may as well be pitchforks, thinking they’re fighting the good fight. I grew up in Kentucky. I know how they are.”

    Okay, Centroamerica, you and Matthew are excused.  

    "Hanoi Jane", who ratted out POWs to the Commies and in saner days would have faced a firing squad, has her left hand on her chin and her right hand on the left shoulder of the girl in orange in front of her (maybe that's why she's arching her back, because of the creepy feeling of being touched by a traitor):

    I think that's Cate Blanchett at the back, on the left. She looks most like Galadriel anyway. And that might be Helen Mirren to her right, possibly.

    Not sure which is Jennifer Lawrence. One of the younger ones. She's in the Hunger Games films (which I've not seen).

  • I've heard of three of the names listed, but I can't pick any of the actresses out.  I thought I knew what Jane Fonda looks like, but, frankly, I don't see her in the picture.

    I had to read this topic 3 times to figure out who the reporter was that was in trouble.  I finally noticed that Hollywood Report is the name of the magazine.  Honestly, Matthew, where do you find all this stuff?

    Really?!!  I must be getting pretty old then.  It still doesn't look anything like my memory of what she looks like.  Of course, I've only seen her in costume and make-up, so I guess she decided to change her looks.
