Top Film Awards Impose New Standards to Promote Diversity

The Academy Awards has faced criticism in recent years for a lack of diversity among its Oscars honorees

The organization that honors movies with the Academy Awards said Tuesday it will require films to meet new standards in order to promote diversity both on the screen and behind the scenes.
