(Note: I have revised this posting to reflect the gender imbalance of the Reporter's story. I mistakenly said the Young Guns were a fairly balanced 18 men to 17 women. The correct number is a much more embarrassing 24 men to 11 women (not including the additional categories of talent and writers/directors). I sincerely apologize for my error.)
The release of the cover of this year's Hollywood Young Guns -- the "Top 35 under 35" entertainment execs -- seems to be missing something. I can't put my finger on it.
Let's see. The lighting is fine. The outfits look nice. I'm pretty sure they're all under 35 (although in Hollywood, that's always a fungible number).
Oh, I think I know what all have in common. They seem awfully ... how to put this ... Politically Uncorrectly ... white man-ish.
Now I don't know their ethnic background, so I may be wrong on half this point. But I'm pretty certain Alex Goldstone, Andrew Miller, Brent Morley, Josh Hornstock and Todd Christopher are all men.
Or should THR be more ashamed that their list of 35 agents, lawyers, film execs, digital execs, publicists, managers and TV execs breaks out with 24 men to only 11 women.
One has to wonder.
