The Entertainment Weekly/AOL Poll

Posted on

Q In her acceptance speech, Oscar winner Halle Berry said the ”door [had] been opened” to minorities in Hollywood. Who will really benefit?

Judging from the 71,353 of you who voted, that door might as well be locked: Forty-one percent of poll respondents felt that even with the triumphs of Berry and fellow winner Denzel Washington, nothing will change in the film industry; slightly fewer thought only minority A-listers will reap any benefits. This is one case where we hope the majority of our voters are wrong.

Nobody — nothing will change 41%

Only established stars like Halle Berry and Denzel Washington 36%

All minority actors 21%
