new poll suggests that for most Americans, Hollywood’s #OscarsSoWhite controversy, about the all-white slate of Best Acting Oscar nominations for the second year in a row, is a tempest in a teapot:

The latest research from YouGov shows that a slight majority of Americans (51%) say that the lack of any non-white actors in this year’s nominations for the Academy Awards is because the best performances happened to be by white actors, not because of a lack of diversity in the nominating process (29%).

Nearly two-thirds of white Americans (62%) say that it was simply because the best performances were by white actors, but three-quarters of black Americans say that it was because of a lack of diversity. Hispanics are split evenly, with 45% saying that the all-white nominations are due to a lack of diversity and 44% saying that the best performances were by white actors.
