Stats of the Day: Is Oscar Just not into Women?
A few eye-opening stats from the Women’s Media Center:
- Of 180 nominations for this year’s Academy Awards, only 35 went to women–that’s 19 percent!
- Fully 1/4 of the categories had no women nominated at all.
- 77 percent of Oscar voters are men.
- Only 6 of the 43 members of the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences are women.
