This year’s slate of Oscar nominees includes seven people of color in the best and supporting acting categories. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences had been criticized for the lack of diversity among nominees in recent years. They responded by adding more people of color, more women and more international members to the group that selects nominees and winners.
But the Academy still has a long way to go: Of its more than 7,000 members, women make up only 27 percent of voters, and people of color make up only 11 percent. That lack of diversity also shows up when you look at who has won in the past. Here are the most common attributes of previous winners, compared to the 2017 nominees.
