Viola Davis Says the Diversity Problem is 'Not With the Oscars'

Viola Davis is weighing in on the diversity problem in the entertainment industry that has been put in the limelight following the 2016 Oscars nominations last week.

“The problem is not with the Oscars, the problem is with the Hollywood movie-making system,” the two-time Oscar nominee told Entertainment Tonight.

“How many black films are being produced every year? How are they being distributed? The films that are being made, are the big-time producers thinking outside of the box in terms of how to cast the role?” Viola continued. “Can you cast a black woman in that role? Can you cast a black man in that role?”

“The problem isn’t even our pay,” she added. “You could probably line up all the A-list black actresses out there [and] they probably don’t make what one A-list white woman makes in one film. That’s the problem. You can change the Academy, but if there are no black films being produced, what is there to vote for?”

Viola was asked if she will be attending this year’s show and she said she won’t be as she will be on vacation. She also said it should be Chris Rock‘s choice if he wants to host still, not celebs who think he should step down.

“Like I said, the Oscars are not really the issue,” Viola said. “It’s a symptom of a much greater disease. But if he does, I hope he takes it as an opportunity to make a statement, a social statement about change. It’s 2016.”
