Well this is taking it to another level…
Emma Thompson weighed in on the recent and pervasive Oscars diversity controversy with a very original opinion that, well, probably isn't realistic.

The actress and screenwriter spoke to the Belfast Telegraph on Monday, telling reporters she had a solution to #OscarsSoWhite that would immediately improve diversity among members of the Academy:
Frances McDormand wants to get to the after party already!
The 58-year-old won the 2015 Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie for her role in Olive Kitteridge!
But instead of giving a long-winded thank you speech like the others, she decided to do the opposite and barely talk at all!
Maybe she thought the show was running too long? LOLz!
The actress beat out other nominees Felicity Huffman for American Crime, Jessica Lange for American Horror Story: Freak Show, Queen Latifah for Bessie, Emma Thompson for Mrs. Lovett, and Maggie Gyllenhaal for The Honorable Woman!
This is the third award of the night for Olive Kitteridge — Lisa Cholodenko also won for Directing and Jane Anderson for Writing!

Is the OG nanny coming back to the big screen!?
Disney hasn't been shy with announcing which of their beloved films will be getting the remake treatment — but this one took us by surprise!
It's been reported that the House Of Mouse is making a live-action musical remake of Mary Poppins!
The studio is currently developing the project with Chicago director Rob Marshall, who also worked on the 2014 Disney musical feature Into The Woods! The film will feature original songs from the Hairspray songwriting duo Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman!

Most of the plot is still under wraps, but according to inside sources it will take place in Depression-era London, about 20 years after the 1964 classic, and will contain elements from other Poppins stories from the book series of author P.L. Travers' (who was played by Emma Thompson in 2013's Saving Mr. Banks!)
We already have so many questions!
Who will play everyone's favorite flying nanny!? Will they shorten "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" for time restraints?
And, most importantly, will Julie Andrews make a cameo? Only time will tell!

Emma Thompson has never been one to bite her tongue!
A year after Emma declared that Twitter is "killing a generation," the actress is taking another stand where it concerns women and sexism in Hollywood. To the surprise of probably no one, girl has a lot of thoughts!

"When I was younger, I really did think we were on our way to a better world and when I look at it now, it is in a worse state than I have known it, particularly for women and I find that very disturbing and sad. I don't think there's any appreciable improvement and I think that, for women, the question of how they are supposed to look is worse than it was even when I was young."
Hmm, considering Zoe Saldana just relayed an anecdote about a producer who only hired the actress for her looks, we think this quote is pretty spot on!
The 56-year-old added:
"So no, I am not impressed, at all. I think it's still completely s–t, actually. I get behind as many young female performers as I can. And actually a lot of the conversations with them are about exactly the fact that we are facing and writing about the same things and nothing has changed and that some forms of sexism and unpleasantness to women have become more entrenched and indeed more prevalent."
Well, at least Emma is supporting young actresses — we bet they appreciate the love!
So, do you agree with ET's comments?
