The Tonys Are Just As White As The Oscars - Here Are The #TonysSoWhite Statistics

Since the awards began– 1929 for the Oscars, 1947 for the Tonys over 95% of all nominees have been white, with the Tonys recognizing more people of color by less than 1%. The big difference is in the ratios: The Tonys recognize twice as many black artists, but the Oscars recognize three times as many Asians and Latinos. –LEE SEYMOUR, Forbes
