Senior affiliated faculty Gautam Chopra was interviewed by WalletHub regarding diversity at the Academy Awards.

From the Worcester Telegram & Gazette interview:

Clearly, they have a unique vision. And that vision has really allowed them to redefine genres really. There are about seven different genres in ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once.’ It’s sci-fi. It’s comedy. It’s got horror. And all mixed together and reinvented. I look forward them to continuing to do outstanding work for that reason because they approach everything with this spirit of invention.

– John Craig Freeman
