'You can't vote for an actor just because he's black'

Why not?

You can have a woman on a shortlist just because she's a woman.

Aren't they all Actors?

Ok we have Best Actress - is that accommodating women?

therefore it seems we must have Best Black Actor (Actress), Best Disabled Actor / (Actress) to accommodate the minority groups - where does it all stop.

Drop the Best actor /actress completely replace with Best leading Role -

Best Supporting Role(which they already have.

Perhaps none of the films they were in were not good enough or their acting was not good enough. I have a very old friend who does some of the screening/nominating for the OSCAS ( No financial reward). If he does not like a film within 15 minutes of watching it it then it goes no further as far as he is concerned. He certainly is not racist.

morddwyd exactly the point. It's discrimination in one form or another. Unless there are very exceptional reasons why it should be a man or a woman, or should be black or white then it should be the best person for there job irrespective.

No it is not it is about picking who qualifies, if whites don't qualify they will not be selected.

Fruitbat you are clearly a racist, no mention of a Chinese dwarf.

Why is there no 'Best Girl' in the end credits of films?
