Selma's David Oyelowo Slams Academy For Lack of Diversity

Selma actor David Oyelowo is speaking out against The Academy for the lack of diversity in all twenty acting nominations this year.

“The Academy has a problem,” the 39-year-old British actor said while presenting Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs with an award named after civil rights icon Rosa Parks at the King Legacy Awards on Monday (January 18). “It’s a problem that needs to be solved.”

“A year ago, I did a film called Selma, and after the Academy Awards, Cheryl invited me to her office to talk about what went wrong then,” David said. “We had a deep and meaningful [conversation]. For 20 opportunities to celebrate actors of color, actresses of color, to be missed last year is one thing; for that to happen again this year is unforgivable.”

“The reason why the Oscars are so important is because it is the zenith, it is the epitome, it is the height of celebration of artistic endeavor within the filmmaking community. We grow up aspiring, dreaming, longing to be accepted into that august establishment because it is the height of excellence. I would like to walk away and say it doesn’t matter, but it does, because that acknowledgement changes the trajectory of your life, your career, and the culture of the world we live in,” David continued. “This institution doesn’t reflect its president and it doesn’t reflect this room. I am an Academy member and it doesn’t reflect me, and it doesn’t reflect this nation.”

Daniel Craig & David Oyelowo Will Do 'Othello' Off-Broadway!

Daniel Craig and David Oyelowo are set to team up together for a new Off-Broadway production of the classic Shakespeare play Othello.

The play will be produced at the New York Theatre Workshop and more casting will be announced at a later date.

“This production is an opportunity for New York Theatre Workshop to do what it aspires to do – to foster the growth and accomplishment of the artists we believe in,” artistic director James C. Nicola said in a statement (via Deadline). “When Sam Gold, a longstanding member of our NYTW Usual Suspects community, came to us with the beginning sketches of this production, with these two sublime actors, it seemed the perfect next step for us to take together. I’m eager to see what these original, creative artists come up with in response to Shakespeare’s enduring tragedy.”

Daniel has starred on Broadway in the plays Betrayal and A Steady Rain in recent years while David is a veteran to the stage in England.
