    i don't know if anyone heard of "Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy" She is a legend to all of the women in the world and especially in Pakistan where women treated poorly (not all the women but some do) their husband splash acid on their faces or their parents don't allow their daughter to marry the guy she is interested in and that even makes me sad
    But a Women like Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy made documentaries of real life stories and changed their lives... She is the first Pakistani who won two Oscars in a row (i think), first documentary she made was "Saving Face" (2012) and she won an Oscar award for that film and the other one she won an Oscar award for "A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness" 2015, just because of that documentary, Pakistan parliament decided to change the legislation

    Everyone only cares about the Acting categories, based on peoples' complaints about there not being diversity in the film industry (there isn't, but there will always be that one exception every couple years ).

    O...kay?
    I'm explaining why no one cares about the Documentary section.


    In response to DiddyDec sarcastically referencing the #OscarsSoWhite controversy?
    It was about some black actors/entertainers
    pointing out no diversity in the Acting nominees.


    And yes actors can change people's lives. Many donate millions to honorable charities and even sponsor politicians.

    I can't tell you the number of celebrities who openly endorsed Obama! :dance:
    And who go to natural disaster-stricken places, etc.
    Some are ok as people.

    I'm just explaining the answer to the question you asked me about why no one cares about documentaries

    Everyone tunes into watch the actors. If you noticed I'm not actually pleased that people do that

    I doubt that's what she meant. I for one love documentaries and greatly admire this woman but it's true that the majority of people (at least in the West) are absorbed with the celebrity culture and movies and care less about documentaries, unfortunately. But in the area where most of the public is focused, the majority of ethnic minorities in Hollywood cannot hope to have a real career. They are much less likely to be offered respected movie roles that White actors and actresses.
