Academy Awards spurned by Issa Rae for lack of diversity

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:35 pm on 14 January 2020

The nominations for the 92nd Academy Awards were announced overnight in a live broadcast hosted by actors Issa Rae and John Cho. After announcing the nominations for Best Director, Issa sent a rather pointed barb about the lack of women in the category. LA-based film reviewer Dom Corry chats to Karyn about the nominations.
