Emma Thompson Talking About Oscars Diversity Issue

Emma Thompson Has a Simple, No-Frills Solution For the #OscarsSoWhite Issue

Given that the Oscars are less than two weeks away, there's still plenty of talk about the show's biggest issue: diversity. It's been a pretty hot issue for weeks — celebrities were pretty quick to pull the trigger and share their personal thoughts about the issue, and SNL even got in on the debate with a pretty daring skit. Even a month after the release of this year's nominations, though, stars are still weighing in. At last week's Evening Standard British Film Awards in London, Emma Thompson offered a pretty hilarious solution to the whole issue. Read what she said below, watch the clip above, and then get some tips on preparing yourself for this year's show.

"It's hilarious, but I mean, it's no change there. It's not as if it's ever been awash with people of color. Let's face it. I mean, the Oscars membership is mainly old white men. You know. That's the fact of it. So, I mean, either you wait for them all to die, or kill them off slowly. I mean, I don't know. There's so many options, aren't there?"
