Hollywood’s Diversity Problem

Hosted by

This Sunday, a few people – alright, hundreds of millions of people – will gather at their sets to watch stars walk the red carpet, and then award each other with golden trophies. It’s an annual tradition, but one thing you won’t see this year is a lot of diversity. In fact, the last time there were this few Oscar nominees of color was in 1998. And that has civil rights groups and even lawmakers calling for some changes in how the Oscar nominees are selected, and how movies are cast. KCRW's Steve Chiotakis talked to Joe Mathews, California columnist for Zocalo Public Square, and Mandalit del Barco, NPR reporter who covers entertainment and Hollywood.
