Women, Actors of Color Better Represented in 2019 Films, Study Finds

The stats prove that women of color are now better represented in films, though the inclusive stars are often overlooked during awards season. The 2020 BAFTA Awards nominated only white actors, while Cynthia Erivo is the only performer of color nominated at the upcoming Oscars.

Natalie Portman hit the Oscars red carpet with a cape embroidered with the names of female directors who were shut out from this year's nominations, she told the Los Angeles Times. "I wanted to recognize the women who were not recognized for their incredible work this year, in my subtle way.
