Lee & Low Books continues to create infographics focusing on diversity in media representation. This one focuses on the Academy Awards from 1927 to 2012. The researchers reviewed the 85 year old history of the institution and call the results “staggeringly disappointing.”
Since the Academy Awards was founded 85-years ago:
- Only one woman of color (1%) has ever won the Academy Award for Best Actress
- Only six men of color (7%) have ever won the Academy Award for Best Actor
- Only one woman (1%) has ever won the Academy Award for Best Director
