New rules for the Oscar: news that occupies many titles and newspapers.
I think it is useless to explain further, it is now known to anyone that starting from 2024 in order to aspire to the victory of the prestigious award of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Science, the cast, as well as the production staff, will have to INCLUDE people belonging to certain “categories”.
Wanting to stay on an ironic tone, one would wonder if Academy President Rubin’s past as casting director could have influenced, but the smile immediately fades and I don’t know about you, but I feel more on the wavelength of Kirstie Alley who called this “Orwellian” decision.
Personally, this concept of categories does not belong to me starting from the infamous “pink quotas”.
For me, inclusion does not have to take place by regulation, and in any case there is a distinction between deserving a certain position or obtaining it by decree, which is even more discriminating in my opinion.
It is the common thought that must evolve, the very concept of diversity not as extraneousness but as an added value, as freedom.
Understanding in the sense of containing in oneself, embracing, enclosing, receiving spiritually, rather than including in a number, in a series, in a list.
Inserting as a clause the presence of people defining them as BELONGING TO A CATEGORY is not itself a discrimination?
When you define a person according to their origins, according to their nature or according to their orientation, does it not create a subdivision that shouldn’t exist instead?
Shouldn’t we all be thinking of someone just SUITABLE FOR THE ROLE OR DUTY, and nothing more?
I would not like to be a pink share, better yellow like light, or something green, like hope.
