Denzel Washington Says He's Lived the Oscars' Lack of Diversity

Denzel Washington is opening up about the lack of diversity at the Academy Awards in light of the #OscarsSoWhite campaign in past years.

The 61-year-old actor is a two-time Oscar winner and is a frontrunner at this year’s awards for his work in the movie Fences.

“I’ve lived it,” Denzel said when asked by 60 Minutes about the lack of diversity.

“I’ve been the guy at the Oscars without my name being called, I’ve been the guy at the Oscars when my name is called, I’ve been the Oscars when everybody thought they were going to call my name and they didn’t. I’ve lived it,” Denzel said.

When asked his response would be to people who call this unfair, Denzel said, “Yeah and so what? Give up? If you’re looking for an excuse, you’ll find one. You can find it wherever you’d like. You can’t live like that. Just do the best you can do.”

Lady Gaga Gets Tattoo with Survivors from Oscars Performance

Lady Gaga and the sexual assault survivors featured in her Oscars performance this past weekend have gotten matching tattoos.

“We were hanging out backstage and they told me they wanted to get matching tattoos. I didn’t have time to go before the performance, but I wanted to get one with them, so I got mine after the performance,” the 29-year-old entertainer told Z100.

“We all have this matching survivor tattoo. I have to say such a shout-out and a thank you to all of those people who came on stage with me because I’ve never been such a wreck as I was the week before this performance,” she added.

Gaga shared the experience of getting the tattoo, which was done at a parlor in Chicago on Thursday (March 3), on her Snapchat account.
