Washington D.C., Jan. 21 (ANI): Jada Pinkett Smith and Spike Lee have found their support system in Quincy Jones as he is flexing his influence with the Academy Awards over the issue of all white nominees.
The 82-year-old producer, who is the first African American on the Academy’s board of governors, recently addressed the media by saying that they got to find a solution as it has been going on for too long, reports TMZ.com.
Quincy said that he will raise this topic amongst the board and if they don’t give him time he will refuse to present the Oscars.
He’s supposed to present an award with Common and Pharrell Williams.
Quincy also said that it is frightening to see 90 per cent white and 80 per cent white males nominated. (ANI)
