Life Prince William argues for more diversity Posted on February 3, 2020 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ During the presentation of the BAFTAs, Prince William (37) fought for more diversity. The prince, who has been president of the academy since 2010, wants equal opportunities for everyone. Earlier in the evening, actor Joaquin Phoenix and actress Rebel Wilson had argued for the same thing. “That should not be possible at this time” “We are already talking about how it is necessary to add more diversity in this sector. Currently this is not possible.” William continued his speech by saying that BAFTA takes the issue seriously. The ceremony was discredited this year due to the lack of diversity in the nominees. Only white actors and actresses had a chance to win a statue in the most important categories. There were also no female directors who could win a prize.
