OSCARS SO WHITE

Charlotte Rampling Regrets Oscar Comment

Charlotte Rampling has attempted to clarify her statements about the racial makeup of Oscar nominees. “I regret that my comments could have been misinterpreted,” she told CBS News. “I simply meant to say that in an ideal world every performance will be given equal opportunities for consideration.” Rampling, who is nominated in the Best Actress category this year, initially said that the uproar over the lack of black nominees was “racist to white people.”
