Oscars Ageism?? See Why New Study Wants #OscarsSoYoung To Be The Next Cause

The Academy may be doing better in representing people of color this year… but that doesn't mean they're completely off the hook!

Though this year's Oscars nominees are much more inclusive in terms of honoring diverse storytelling through films like Fences, Hidden Figures, and Moonlight, there's still one demo that Oscar films have largely ignored.

Well, there are a lot of stories that still aren't being properly told (but that's a different conversation, Scarlett Johansson) — however, a new report has pointed out the stark lack of representation of seniors in this year's nominees!

Researchers at USC's Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism looked at the 25 best picture nominees from 2014, 2015, and 2016 and discovered that less than 12 percent of the 1,256 speaking or named characters were 60 years old and up.

That number doesn't quite measure up to the 18.5 percent seniors make up of the U.S. population, OR the 14 percent they make of film ticket buyers.

But it does align with industry trends. In an earlier study, USC researchers found that just 11 percent of characters in the 100 top-grossing films from 2015 were over the age of 59.

Co-author of the study Stacy Smith said this underrepresentation is a "missed opportunity" for studios, explaining:

In the accompanying interview, Scarlett begins with the story of losing her breast pump at the 2016 Oscars, and it reminds us that she's, well, just like your average woman, except with millions in the bank!

She recalled:

"Somehow, Mark [Consuelos] got ahold of my breast pump—in a bag with all the milk, ice packs in there, and shit. He grabbed it out of my hand, but our cars got separated. Apparently, Kelly [Ripa] looked over, and she was like, 'Wait a minute—is that Scarlett's breast pump? We've got to get it back!' because she knew how panicked I would be. We finally ended up at the same party three hours later, and Mark was like, 'I'm so sorry.'"

LOLz!

Funny anecdote aside, the star also addresses some serious issues, including her casting in Ghost in the Shell, which many found to be a case of white-washing.

Madonna and Cyndi Lauper

A feud between Cyndi Lauper and Madonna — yet another way you can tell we're living in 1984.

As you probably are aware, the 58-year-old got a ton of heat following the Women's March on Saturday for her comments insinuating she wanted to "blow up the White House" — forcing her to apologize later, saying:

"I am not a violent person, I do not promote violence and it's important people hear and understand my speech in it's entirety rather than one phrase taken wildly out of context."

Well, well!

Scarlett Johansson and her husband, Romain Dauriac, may be in the midst of a separation but they're certainly not avoiding each other. On Wednesday, mere hours after it was reported that the Avengers actress and the French art collector had separated, the twosome were spotted attending a NYC art exhibition together. Huh.
