Nominee Julie Delpy SLAMS Oscars: Run By Old “White Men” Who Take Bribes
Julie Delpy, an Oscars nominee, lashes out at the ceremony in an explosive new interview, suggesting the Academy Awards are controlled by old white men who take bribes.
“We have the Golden Globes. If you could see it, you wouldn’t believe that there’s anything good about it. The same goes for the Oscars,” she’s quoted as telling So Film magazine. “It’s 90 percent white men over 70 who need money because they haven’t done anything in a long time. You just need to give them two or three presents and they’re in your pocket.”
Delpy is nominated for Best Original Screenplay (with Richard Linklater and Ethan Hawke) for Before Midnight.
