For those who don't know, Natalie Portman has been hailed a hero for calling out the Golden Globe Best Director nominees as "and here are the male nominees" because of "lack of female representation". But how does one make sure all groups are included AND making sure it's merit based?
Now, I don't watch too many movies, and I certainly aware of sexism all around the place (mind you, it is can go both ways). I certainly do not advocate harassment, am anti elitist, anti capitalism, believe everyone should get a fair start and fair go in life.
But unfortunately most things in life are not merit based, but rather a popularity contest, or who your grandmother knows, or how much money your aunty has - however in the modern world, even those things are trumped by another category - all inclusivity, but if you want to make it all-inclusive, make sure it is all inclusive!
Perhaps there should be one who is a Caucasian male, one Caucasian female, one Asian male, one , one African American male, one African American female, one Hispanic male, one Hispanic female, one Russian male, one Russian female, one native American male, one native American female, one indigenous male, one indigenous female, any one else who feel left out, make sure you get your group added to the next GG Best Director nomination group ok?
Ok, so maybe entertainment awards are not actually merit based? (Really, I don't watch many movies, and the last jedi film that I watched don't deserve any awards from me. Also, I really liked wonder woman, but I don't think that movie deserved any awards either.)
Ok I better go hide under my desk now.
