Washington D.C., Jan. 23 (ANI): As the controversy over diversity debate embroiling the Academy Awards continues, Sir Michael Caine is the latest actor to speak out on the issue.
When asked to address the controversy during an interview, the 82-year-old ‘Youth Star’ said, “There’s loads of black actors. You can’t vote for an actor because he’s black. You got to give a good performance, and I’m sure there were very good (performances),” reports People Magazine.
Spike Lee, Will Smith and Jade Pinkett Smith have said they will boycott next month’s Academy Awards after no actors from ethnic minorities were nominated in the top four categories. (ANI)
