    Reuters - Thu 19 Feb, 2015 7:30 AM IST

    By Mary Milliken LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - In a year when a lack of diversity among Academy Awards nominees prompted the Twitter hashtag #OscarsSoWhite, one-third of Americans believe Hollywood does not pay proper attention to minorities and women, according to the annual Reuters/Ipsos Oscars poll. Thirty-four percent of the nearly 2,000 people polled online said they believed Hollywood has a general problem with minorities and 32 percent said the film industry's capital shies away from making Oscar-caliber movies that appeal to minorities. Nearly two-thirds of black respondents, or 62 percent, said Hollywood had a problem with minorities, compared to 48 percent from all minority groups. How women are treated fared only slightly better overall, with 32 percent of respondents saying Hollywood has a problem with women and 29 percent believing it fell short in making Oscar-caliber movies for the female audience.

  • Activists seek to put porn actor condom requirement on California ballot

    Reuters - Thu 19 Feb, 2015 3:50 AM IST

    By Michael Fleeman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Healthcare activists critical of adult film industry practices are working to put a measure before California voters next year to require porn actors to use condoms during film production, expanding a Los Angeles County rule that survived a legal challenge. The proposed ballot measure, aimed at protecting actors from sexually transmitted diseases, would require film companies to be licensed by the state and would impose fines of $70,000 for offenders. Under a final draft of the measure filed with the state on Tuesday, film companies would have to post warning signs visible to performers stating that California law requires condom use for "all acts of vaginal or anal intercourse during the production of adult films." "We're trying to protect both performers as well as those who would interact with performers and keep everybody safer as a result of safe sex,” said Bradley Hertz, an attorney for the Los Angeles-based AIDS Healthcare Foundation, which is sponsoring the measure.
