LOS ANGELES — Media critic and founder of the family and values based Movieguide, Ted Baehr, says the solution to the #OscarsSoWhite controversy proposed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is flawed and encourages prejudice, the exact opposite of the Academy's intention.
"As all Hollywood insiders know, the Academy is a club, and like all clubs, insider politics and favoritism reigns supreme," said Baehr in a statement released to the press. "If they believe their problem is that white voters vote white, thus the solution to bring in more African-American voters to even the playing field, they're simply encouraging prejudice voting based on skin color instead of solving the root issue."
Baehr is considered a valuable trusted source by conservative moviegoers interested in reading reviews that place family and faith values as the highest priority. His organization will have its own entertainment awards night, Movieguide's 24th annual Faith & Values Awards Gala, held at the Universal Hotel in Los Angeles on Feb. 5. more >>
