The “British Oscars” just took a bold step toward ensuring diversity in film — take note, Hollywood

  • Films looking to compete in two major categories at the BAFTA awards must now demonstrate a commitment to diversity in order to be nominated
  • Starting in 2019, films will have to demonstrate they have worked to improve representation of marginalized groups in front of and behind the camera — or even in the film’s audience.
  • The groups specified by the academy include people of color, people living with disabilities, women and LGBTQ people. 
  • Here are the ways they can demonstrate this diversity of talent, per the academy:
    • On-screen representation, themes and narratives
    • Project leadership and creative practitioners
    • Industry access and opportunities
    • Opportunities for diversity in audience development

― Trainspotting (1996)

“Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a three-piece suit on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up brats you spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life… But why would I want to do a thing like that? I chose not to choose life. I chose somethin’ else. And the reasons? There are no reasons. Who needs reasons when you’ve got heroin?”

― Trainspotting (1996)

“People think it’s all about misery and desperation and death and all that shit which is not to be ignored, but what they forget is the pleasure of it. Otherwise we wouldn’t do it. After all, we’re not fucking stupid. At least, we’re not that fucking stupid.”
