Jada Pinkett Smith is thanking the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences just one day after she announced she would be boycotting their annual awards show, the Oscars.
Shortly after Jada revealed her plans to skip the ceremony, Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs released a statement saying that the group had a plan in place to make sure a more diverse group of nominees would be included in the future.
'I would like to express my gratitude to the Academy, specifically Cheryl Boone Isaacs, for such a quick response in regard to the issue at hand. I look forward to the future,' wrote Jada on her social media accounts Monday night.
Jada did not however have any comment about statements made by Alexis Arquette and Janet Hubert attacking the actress and her husband after she announced her boycott."
Isaacs, who in addition to being president of the Academy is also one of the invite-only group's few non-white members, said in a statement on Monday:
'I’d like to acknowledge the wonderful work of this year’s nominees.
'While we celebrate their extraordinary achievements, I am both heartbroken and frustrated about the lack of inclusion. This is a difficult but important conversation, and it’s time for big changes.
'The Academy is taking dramatic steps to alter the makeup of our membership.
'In the coming days and weeks we will conduct a review of our membership recruitment in order to bring about much-needed diversity in our 2016 class and beyond.'
She then added; 'As many of you know we have implemented changes to diversify our membership in the last four years.
'But the change is not coming as fast as we would like. We need to do more, and better and more quickly.'
So we will wait to here what Jada Haters has to say now.
