Naomi Campbell: “The next Oscars has to be black”

Super Model-Naomi Campbell says the next Oscars has to “be black”. The Academy Awards has long faced backlash for not representing people of color. Following years of criticism for a lack of diversity, the 50-year-old model-and-actress says that following the Black Lives Matter protests across the globe this summer,there will be many educational movies made to highlight racism as a result, which must not be ignored during the 2021 awards season. 

During the latest episode of her YouTube series, ‘No Filter with Naomi’, Naomi – who was joined by special guest Mary J. Blige – said: “The next Oscars and award season is going to be totally educational and I’m sorry but it’s going to be black! … I’m not saying it in any way or form to be biased … but what we’re going through in the world today, all these wonderful historical people are going to come up [in film] and there’s no way you can deny their stories and not give them the credits they deserve.” Meanwhile,Oscars chiefs are tackling the issue with a new set of inclusion standards for best picture , commencing in 2024.
