Hollywood’s Diversity Dips in Big Film Productions Post-Pandemic: UCLA Study
A new study by researchers from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) found that Hollywood’s biggest film productions saw a dip in diversity as the industry emerged from the pandemic. This is a setback after years of incremental progress in improving representation in the film industry.
Streaming Platforms Offer More Opportunities for Women and People of Color
The study found that opportunities for women and people of color were notably greater on streaming platforms compared to theatrically released films. This highlights the growing importance of streaming platforms in driving diversity in the entertainment industry.

The study was part of the annual UCLA Hollywood Diversity Report, which provides an in-depth analysis of diversity in the entertainment industry. The report is published annually and covers a range of topics, including representation in front of and behind the camera, as well as industry trends and challenges.
