ABC: Even the GOP Candidates are More Diverse than the Oscars

‘Just saying, the seven-person lineup for last night’s A-list Republican candidates debate was more diverse than the Academy Award 20 acting nominations’

ROBERTS: "Now to the Oscars and for the second year in a row, backlash over who was not nominated. The front page this morning’s L.A. Times saying it all, asking the question where is the diversity? And ABC’s Chris Connelly is here with that story. Good morning, Chris." 
CONNELLY: "Good morning, Robin. And what we saw, not people attacking this nomination or that nomination but asking questions, again, about the process and about the industry."

CONELLY (voice-over): "Just saying, the seven-person lineup for last night’s A-list Republican candidates debate was more diverse than the Academy Award 20 acting nominations. None of which went to a person of color for the second year in a row."
