Academy Announces New ‘Inclusion Standards’ for Best Picture Category

Lindsay Kornick – mrcNewsBusters Sept 9, 2020

In Hollywood’s continuing attempt to eat itself through wokeness, the Academy has finally released a new inclusion initiative needed to qualify for the Oscars. If you’ve been thinking movies have become unwatchable now, just wait until they meet Academy standards.

On September 8, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced new representation and inclusion standards for Oscar eligibility as part of its Academy Aperture 2025 initiative. According to the initiative, filmmakers will now be required to submit a confidential Academy Inclusion Standards form to be nominated for Best Picture for the 94th and 95th Oscars ceremonies. However, they will not be required to meet all the inclusion thresholds in the form until the 96th Oscars in 2024.

What exactly are these requirements? From the looks of things, they seem to be Hollywood’s version of racial quotas. Now, a movie must not only be good (though that’s been debatable in recent years), but it must also prominently feature “underrepresented” groups in some way, shape, or form.

Here is the breakdown for just one of the standards films will need to fulfill:


To achieve Standard A, the film must meet ONE of the following criteria:

A1. Lead or significant supporting actors

At least one of the lead actors or significant supporting actors is from an underrepresented racial or ethnic group.



Black/African AmericanIndigenous/Native American/Alaskan Native

Middle Eastern/North African

Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander

Other underrepresented race or ethnicity

A2. General ensemble cast

At least 30% of all actors in secondary and more minor roles are from at least two of the following underrepresented groups:


Racial or ethnic group


People with cognitive or physical disabilities, or who are deaf or hard of hearing

 A3. Main storyline/subject matter

The main storyline(s), theme or narrative of the film is centered on an underrepresented group(s).


Racial or ethnic group


People with cognitive or physical disabilities, or who are deaf or hard of hearing

There are three other standards listed in the full breakdown. Films will need to fulfill a minimum of two to be qualified for the Best Picture category. Of course, Academy President David Rubin and CEO Dawn Hudson praise this move in their joint statement saying, “The Academy is committed to playing a vital role in helping make this a reality. We believe these inclusion standards will be a catalyst for long-lasting, essential change in our industry.”

Change is certainly coming, but not for the better. Leftists have been complaining for years about how “White” and “problematic” the Oscars have been, but they have nothing on how problematic this list sounds. Films with mostly white casts like the World War I film 1917 or the Netflix drama The Irishman will likely be excluded in favor of angry liberal directors like Spike Lee. The racial quotas will inevitably lead to the whines of “tokenization” despite being unethical anyway, so that will all be for nothing. Finally, some smaller film companies will probably never be considered without the clout or money of major studios to fulfill these standards. How’s that for celebrating film?

  1. “And the award for the best non Jewish owned studio produced picture goes to….???”

  2. Oscar viewing numbers have plunged every year for… years.

    Nearly fifty years ago a bright gossip columnist called Rona Barrett said, “Just cancel these stupid awards. They’ve become an embarrassment.” More so now than then.

    These “awards” only started in the early days of movies to help the business sell tickets and prove they had class. As far as business goes, it worked. But the movies never really had class.

    Time to shove the whole lot into the dust-bucket. Nobody cares anymore.

  3. Does anybody really care?

  4. Hollywood is owned and operated by Satanic Pedophile JEWS! It has been this way
    since the invention of movies with sound. Show me a Hollywood mogul, and I will show you that he is a PERVERT! The movie industry today exists only to support the HoloHOAX lie, reinforce the 911 LIES, support the Satanists of Israel who did 911, and reinforce all the lies of WWII.

  5. Aside from the many Jews & bipedal ape actors, if you do the research you’ll discover that the white gentile actors are all Roman Catholics. The few white Scientologists were born Roman Catholics. The Jewish Overlords who created the Roman Catholic Church & control the Vatican to this day understand that white gentile Roman Catholics are the best Judeophilic toadies.

  6. Hollywood actors are obliged to become satanists to be successful. Even the award of an Oscar is an Egyptian god. The award ceremony takes place where a copy of the Ishtar Gate from Babylon is at the front, where everyone has to pass through to enter. The actors are required to be transgender or homosexual and the children are involved. So for example Brad Pitt is a female to male while George Clooney was obliged to marry Amal, a male to female. I thought it interesting that Schwarzenegger, to be permitted to become Governor of California, was married to Maria Scriver, observe a photo of her, ‘she’ has a huge jaw bone which only males have, no wonder Arnie had an affair with the maid! Frank Smith had a Youtube channel where photos of celebs were altered to remove hair, make up and clothing and replaced with the clothing of the opposite gender, it amazed me to see these stars were virtually all playing the wrong gender. His channel was deleted this month by Youtube. Its against community standards to reveal these deceivers you know. I believe this is a major reason for the confusion in kids today with gender and also in anorexia in women, who cannot hope to look like skinny boys, all those models on the catwalk are actually men. Sick world.

  7. As James Woods quipped: “Now let’s see them apply these standards to all Pro Sports.”
