The Academy Awards are Sunday. A professor at Vassar College in Poughkeepsie, New York, says the Oscar nominations are an indication that the Academy and Hollywood are taking #MeToo and #OscarsSoWhite to heart. Dr. Mia Mask teaches African American cinema, feminist film theory, documentary history and seminars on special film topics.

WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne spoke with Mask about what she thinks of this year’s nominees.
