Oscar Nominee Says Diversity Controversy Is Racist Against White People
HAHAHA, OK. Sure. Thanks for your input, Charlotte.
Charlotte Rampling, who got an Oscar nomination for Best Actress for her performance in “45 Years,” a movie literally no one knew existed until the nomination list was announced, has some strong opinions on race.
Great! The Academy Awards came under fire this year for lack of diversity, leading many A-list celebrities to rightfully boycott the awards ceremony after no people of color were nominated in a number of categories.
Having a more senior name like Charlotte Rampling make a statement on this nomination whitewashing could send an incredibly strong message to the Academy and its members.
On French radio network Europe1 on Friday, she said,
Oh, Charlotte, no. Why, Charlotte?
Just so everyone is VERY clear, this is what Charlotte Rampling looks like.
Professor McGonagall lives, and she has no idea how race works.
The Internet is as baffled at this as you are.
Not that she really had any, but Charlotte is losing Oscar buzz REAL fast.
Good luck, Charlotte.
