UPDATE: This video now includes results from the 2015 Oscars ceremony, meaning it is up-to-date ahead of the 2016 Oscars.
A lot of noise was made about the lack of diversity among nominees for the Oscars the last couple of years. This video shows how many black, hispanic, and asian winners there have been throughout history, across four main categories -- best actor/actress, supporting actor/actress, writing (original and adapted screenplays), and directing.
Determining race/ethnicity and assigning people to categories can be a rather dicey and imprecise activity. Some inaccuracies or points of contention must be expected.
