I see the Cesar film awards are now having their diversity controversies
alongside the BAFTAs and Oscars
One modelling aspect of this (that I always think is very relevant for the seemingly awful taste in movies evidenced in the Oscars)
is that basically all Oscar nominees are entitled to become Academy members; that is the main route.
The Cesars and BAFTAs basically have a membership open to industry participants in general (but with dodgy sounding proposer and seconder arrangements).
If you make the assumption that the movie industry has a certain percentage of sexist bastards who will always votes against the interests of
women, (or minorities) then the Oscars process has a obvious bottleneck in reaching an equilibrium
If you further make the assumption that the rest always vote fairly for the best film, what will the extra waiting time for Oscars to reach diversity equilibrium?
Obvious a few assumptions need to be made about the nominees per year/industry size ratio.
Should the relative the rate to equilibrium between BAFTAs (say) and Oscars be related to that ratio? With what scaling?
