colored people were not allowed in public places so when people tried to get into the award shows they were never allowed in. They had to have a producer beg the guard to let them in. They often got very mad when they couldn't get into a public place. they thought it was a public place so everyone should be aloud but that not how it worked. instead they would have to leave and couldn't attend anything. not very many colored people were nominated for awards in the Oscars and it became a big problem especially with social media. when they finally started nominating colored people, social media went and talked about how they still needed to add Hispanics, Asian-Americans, and other culters to the Oscars as well. they still have a long way to go before they can make it seem like they arent going against non white people. people often called the Oscars the "white award show" because they mainly focused on whit epeople and having white nomenees.
