Ellen Page has won the Oscar prize on 2008 with best preformance by an actress in a leading role. Just like every year, Oscar awards causes a lot of discussions because like every year there are diversities in Oscar awards. And Ellen Page has some words about that.
Ellen Page said that “(It) means a lot to me as an audience member and as a human being, it means a lot to me as someone who does this job. I think the issue is much more systemic and I hope that’s what changes, hearing more diverse stories, but I feel like finally there’s some steps going in the right direction.”
“You look at something like (TV series) Orange Is the New Black, and how many actresses we were introduced to, who we may not otherwise have seen because they had no opportunity.” Mentioned Ellen Page.
She said ‘That makes me feel like, ‘How could you not feel angry at that’, you know?’
She told that “And I hope that is what is going to continue to happen, and, just as an audience member, I want to go (and) see more stories from different perspectives. We do this job, sure to entertain, but also to reflect aspects of what it means to be a human.”
“I am really liking producing to be honest, and when I say that – learning to do it and that’s something I’m continuing to do – there are things in the pipeline… I do think about someday directing, but not next week.” she mentioned.
