It's award season which means we're all going to be talking about the best dressed,  the most annoying speech, and pervasive discrimination. Hooray! Meredith and April talk with Shauna Robinson and Tash Gray—two working screenwriters (and formerly working) and women of color in the Hollywood trenches. The ladies get real as we all dissect how, once again, only white actors received Oscar nominations for their work, and films with more diverse casts continue to be ignored by the Academy even while making serious bank at the box office. Shauna and Tash go deep on the issue that is rocking Hollywood as we get ready for the biggest night of the year. Gray and Robinson's perspectives from writer's rooms as the only black women in the room will open your eyes wide and make you question how relevant the pomp and circumstance of Oscar night really is in 2016. #Oscarssowhite #Oscarssomale Produced by Mason Booker and Adam Silverstein.
