The more things don't change at The Hollywood Reporter, the more they stay the same.
The magazine/website/Twitter feed released their annual Top 35 Hollywood execs under 35 the other day. And guess what? It was dominated by white men.
To those who are saying, "Gosh. This all sounds so familiar. Where do I know this from?" I would respond by saying. "My blog from last year."
This year's list featured an unimpressive gender balance of 26 men and 9 women. This is even worse than last year's numbers of 24 men and 11 women. And as for any sort of ethnic diversity, fuhgeddaboudit. While I can't be certain of the racial background of all the nominees, by my estimates no fewer than 30 people (or 85%) are white.
Keep up the good work.
