Top-Grossing Films: Critics and Female-Driven Movies
top-grossing films: Researchers studied the reviews of the 100 top-grossing films of 2017 that were posted on the aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes, according to CTV. Of the 19,559 reviews studied, 77.8 were by male critics and 22.2 were by female critics. The research was conducted by the University of Southern California's Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, which released its findings Monday. Stacy Smith, founder and director of the Inclusion Initiative, said film critics are overwhelmingly white and male. The study counted 36 female-driven movies and 24 minority-led movies among the top 100 films of 2017, but found they were largely reviewed by white males. The lack of diverse critical perspectives, researchers said, contributes to the larger gender and ethnic biases in the film industry. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
