The Oscars New Members Are Mostly Minorities ... But #OscarsStillSoWhite

6/29/2016 1:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

062916-academy-awards-logoThe Oscars added 683 new members to its voting body Wednesday ... in the wake of the #OscarsSoWhite bruhaha, and while nearly half of the new class are minorities, it barely put a dent in the overall white and male demo.

According to the Academy ... 46 percent of the new class are female and 41 percent ... people of color. Sounds like a lot, but when you factor in the pre-existing members it's only a 2-3%.


Notable names on the list include Idris Elba, Vivica A. Fox, Morris ChestnutMichael B. Jordan, Nia Long, Gabrielle Union, and Marlon and Damon Wayans. 'Star Wars' newcomer John Boyega is the youngest at 24 added to the list. O'Shea Jackson also made the cut ... interesting since the "Straight Outta Compton" snub ignited the controversy.

The Academy says the new class reps "the best in our global film community." It also added this: "We encourage the larger creative community to open its doors wider, and create opportunities for anyone interested in working in this incredible and storied industry."

Baby steps.

BET Awards Weekend LAPD On Alert for Sizzurp Sippin'

6/25/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0624_lapd_training-for-lean_composite_gettyThe LAPD officers just got schooled on sizzurp, aka lean ... but the department swears there's nothing racial about it.

Law enforcement sources tell us LAPD brass has held meetings with cops to go over the basics when it comes to codeine. We're told they've been briefed on how users mix the syrup, how it looks, smells and most importantly ... to be on the lookout for double cups. 

The brass insisted it has nothing to do with this weekend's BET Awards show ... which will draw scores of rappers. They say cops will not specially hunt for double cups ... but officers will arrest anyone if they happen to notice during normal patrol.

Interestingly ... one of the LAPD divisions where a meeting was held was near the BET venue in downtown L.A. But the Hollywood Division didn't have such a meeting, and that's where lots of the after-parties will go down. We're told Hollywood cops already know what's up.
