The fact is that most movies have white lead characters because that sells better. So in turn most movies with huge budgets have white lead characters and a majority white cast. I don't know how you can blame an award show for not representing non-white actors at the awards... If anything it just should point out to you that maybe the acting world as a whole has issues. They are more of the exposers of the issue, instead of the issue itself in my opinion.
