Oscars diversity rowWatch
Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs announced the changes following a backlash over the lack of diversity in this year's nominations.
Actor Will Smith and director Spike Lee are among those to announce they will not be going to February's Academy Awards, after it emerged no black or minority actors had been nominated in the four Oscars acting categories for the second year running.
It comes after a slew of actors backed Lee's announcement that he could not support the "lily white" awards show on Tuesday.
Confirming he would be joining his wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, in not attending, Will Smith said: "We're uncomfortable to stand there and say that this is OK.Oscar-winners George Clooney and Lupita Nyong'o are also among those who have expressed disappointment over the nominations.
Obviously it takes a Briton to speak some sense into these nutters
We can never know... But maybe it's because no black actors merited being nominated.
I have wondered if it is in part due to the AA but also goes deeper with white people dominating the best roles in order to win the awards in the first place
She (Rampling) has started to backtrack saying she was misunderstood, obviously not realising that is the worst thing she could do as they only smell blood and go into an indignant feeding frenzy.
If we can't find an obvious answer, this boycott is silly.
The bigger issue at hand is the way minorities are being castes tho.
It shouldn't matter if they don't have Oscars. If they know they're great actors then why the heck do they need an Oscar?
