Decades of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences being out of step with contemporary values are finally catching up with it.

For the second year running all of the twenty nominees in the acting categories have been from Euro-white background, and while the Academy has made some great choices in recent years, "12 Years A Slave" in 2013 for example, a lot of talented choices have been overlooked for the 2015 awards. Coincidence? The consensus is that it is not.
