Oscars: Best Picture Contenders Must Meet Inclusion Requirements by 2024

For The First Time Ever The Oscars Have Revealed Diversity Standards For Best Pic Nominees

Earlier tonight, The Academy revealed the new requisites that films would have to meet in order to qualify to be nominated for a Best Picture Oscar.

While the criteria will only fully go into effect in two years' time, producers must submit a confidential form about inclusion standards for best-picture consideration in 2022 and 2023.

If this can not be done, then at least a third of the rest of the cast should be women, racial, ethnic minorities, LGBTQ + or people with disabilities.

For creative team, a film must have: at least two creative positions helmed by women, a racial or ethnic minority, a gender identity minority or someone from an underrepresented sexual orientation, or a person with disabilities, including cognitive disabilities.

The Oscars set out four "standards" which it hopes will boost representation and inclusion both in front of and behind the camera.

The Academy's new rules also require the companies behind future Best Picture nominees to establish paid apprenticeships or internships, with the explicit goal of opening the door to communities underrepresented in the film industry.

Student with coronavirus gives baffling excuse for '20-person' house party
After running the student's licence, the officer steps out of his vehicle . "Yeah, that's why I'm at my house", the student says. On Thursday, WOIO reports , the police cited six people who were at the house party just a few days ago.

The diversity standards used by the British Film Institute and the British Academy of Film and Television Awards were taken into account for the development of the new standards. In addition, movies must meet certain diversity benchmarks in their marketing and internship programs. You can still win best picture with a movie exclusively starring Matt Damon, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Gary Oldman.

"We believe these inclusion standards will be a catalyst for long-lasting, essential change in our industry", Academy President David Rubin and Chief Executive Dawn Hudson said in a joint statement.

Other elements of the Aperture 2025 initiative include making annual unconscious bias training mandatory for Academy staff and setting a fixed number of ten Best Picture nominees starting in 2021.

The guidelines were developed by a task force led by academy governors DeVon Franklin and Jim Gianopulos.

The requirements will only apply to films made in 2024, to be eligible for the awards ceremony the following year and going forwards.

Citizen Kane would fail the Oscars' new test because none of its lead or key supporting actors are racial minorities; fewer than 30 percent of its supporting cast is female, gay, transgender, disabled, or a racial minority; and the movie's storyline centers on a white, cis-gendered heterosexual male.
