I don’t know if there are black people at Hollywood agency UTA. Maybe there aren’t.
But gosh, they went all out this morning with this announcement: they’ve promoted 7 white men, 1 white woman, and 1 Asian woman to partner status. In the Hollywood Reporter story, they published pictures of all of them except the Asian woman.
There isn’t a single black person in the story.
UTA was the agency which skipped its Oscar party and threw a ‘resist’ demonstration. You can see what they resisted.
Same as it ever was, same – as – it -ever- was.
I guess really, this is so funny because no one at United Talent or the Hollywood Reporter saw the irony in this.
