I always have watched the Oscars.
I adore Neil Patrick Harris and I think he's doing a great job.
Bravo also to Lady Gaga and Julie Andrews--my favorite Oscar moment of the evening.
That being said, I am angry and annoyed that it is the whitest, male Oscars.
I don't know if I was more racist before we made the commitment to adopt an Asian child, but I know now that I can't go back to not noticing that Hollywood movies have gotten more white and TV has gotten more diverse. Maybe that's why TV is in a new golden age and movies--aren't.
I watch cartoons with my daughter and I marvel that Doc McStuffins is there. I see Sophia the first has a black friend and an asian friend. After Daniel Tiger went to the Dr's office, they had a real life little girl going to the doctor's office. She was asian and her father was caucasian. This was not lost on Lotus who said "Hey, that's like me!"
I hope Hollywood will remember that the world is changing and growing outward from the whiteness. If they don't--well then the box office receipts will keep going down as I watch the amazing stories on TV.
