a mosque has occurred in 1950 injuring the final years of the ottoman empire president says the u.s. is groundlessly exploiting pos tragedy which is upset turkey and damaged relations . when there are a lot of. you are you know it is true that these incidents were unfortunate similarly the muslims have also witnessed unfortunate events on these lands these tragic events cannot be manipulated by the west we as a people as a government cannot manipulate any of these tragic events. corresponding resource has in istanbul reso bring us up to date what else did president at one have to say . well he just simply worldly better much heavily criticised by the censor. gunderson belittle business and tech is ready to or cannot these archives over the issue and the us also should do the same but here which should see that this is a continuation of the strained relations of turkey turkey and the usa so the 2
9:19 pm
different approaches to the guard and security issues of today's 2 major nato allies are the source of the friction so us governments have been critical to particular were several issues but the chief among them are deterred his military operation in syria and also turkey's pushes a russian made as $400.00 missile systems which are not compatible with nato but i'm going to say is that the 1st military operation in syria was against isis too clearly its border from isis and this is the following 2 major operations were against the y p g which is the p.k. case. and so picky is on the totem lease or the usa but here though on the other hand it's an option is getting the support from the u.s. and turkey says that it has lost court t thousands of its citizens in the fight against the care and usa supported ticket
9:20 pm
is becoming a national security threat also purchasing the russian story russian made missiles also was not an option of the season but rather it was a necessity because nato and the usa rejected turkey's demands to get the turkish sort to go get the nato systems well i can say that the turks american relations went through and downs several times through that but these 2 countries knew how to manage this is a nation's going in his appeal which also stressed that he's going to meet president biden face to face in in the nato summit during sort of during the nato summit in june and he's going to convene his masses and concerns to. biden face to face as well or so subtle for us in istanbul thank you let's get more reaction richard gosia joins us live on sky from yerevan in armenia he's director of the regional studies center and independence think tank what do you make of the
9:21 pm
comments today describing the u.s. president's declaration that the killings of armenians as genocide is groundless and unfair world to be honest in many ways i'm not surprised but i am deeply disappointed because what this message was was a message of moral clarity from the united states a vindication of the armenian genocide which wasn't necessarily vindictive for turkey it was very new once and it goes demonstrate that geopolitics is no longer the excuse for avoiding a difficult history what did you think of president wants comments about the fact that u.s. the u.s. president made this declaration as a result of pressure from radical armenian groups and anti turkish circles in the united states. well another sign of disappointment here because in many ways president biden was simply following the voracity and the accuracy of history it
9:22 pm
was a moral imperative and i do think president orbit gone is in in many ways attempting to blame the victim in refusing to move beyond the armenian genocide at the same time or the gone through he has been very good lately at losing friends and of making enemies and i do think whether it's jail political prisoners or journalists we do have to turn the page and move beyond the rhetoric in the bellicose statements. why is it so important to me and set the price that president bite and recognize the genocide when it was literally it is and it is something that happened a very very long time ago well the significance of the relevance is directly rooted in the fact that the reaffirmation of the past is an important way to reassure there is no repeat of genocide in other words this was
9:23 pm
a precedent in terms of the uplink ability the relevance to genocide from rwanda to cambodia as well and secondly it was an attempt by president biden to restore our marriage good to the moral high ground after unfortunate years and setbacks ongar of the trumpet ministration. i can't really get to get your thoughts rich had given speaking to us that from yerevan in media. and the rain in court has sentenced the british iranian a. guy right cliff to another year in jail cigar rockliffe was released in march after serving 5 years on charges of plotting against the government the latest jail term comes from a new charge of spreading propaganda against tehran she and her family have always denied the allegations against her paul brennan is in london with the reaction
9:24 pm
there. universal condemnation of this move from senior politicians i mean the reason why i'm here outside the iranian embassy is because it's here in 2009 that now isn't in iraq i have attended government rally and anti government protest and join the protests gave an interview to the b.b.c. persian service and it's for that 12 years later that the iranian authorities have now prosecuted and convicted her for what they say is propaganda against the iranian islamic republic the reaction let's start with the foreign secretary dominic robb who said it was totally inhumane and wholly unjustified decision to come to this this conviction and we continue to call on iran to release nelson immediately and the prime minister boris johnson then subsequently added his voice to the chorus of outrage i don't think it's right at all that nice clean should be
9:25 pm
sentenced to any more time in in jail i think that it was wrong if it's wrong that she's there in the 1st place and will be working very hard to secure release from iran her ability to return to her family here in the u.k. just as we work for our. national cases in iran and the government will not. stop we will redouble our efforts and we're working by may say with our american friends on this issue as well a husband richard radcliff said that it was clearly a negotiating tactic he said by the iranian authorities to prosecute and convict in this way and there is a glimmer of hope the lawyers for. now have $21.00 days in which to lodge an appeal they've already said that they will lodge an appeal on the grounds that it's taken so long to bring this prosecution so long after the alleged events took place.

9:27 pm
mcdormand plays an aging widow up rooted by economic change traveling the back roads of the western u.s. in a battered van it's her 3rd oscar. and i like work. thank you for knowing that and thanks for this. anthony hopkins the father in a surprise anthony hopkins won best actor for his role in the father many hollywood observers thought the late chadwick boseman who passed away last year from cancer at age 43 would be chosen for his dynamic performance in monterrey nice black bottom. is not a question of barn is a noun dinosaur question of resistance to fast ism or not exists is what do your parents as well why performers won the top prizes 9 actors and actresses of color were nominated for awards the winners included daniel kaluga for supporting actor in judas and the black messiah and yo jewel use as supporting actress in the nare
9:28 pm
i'd like to thank to my 2 boys who made me pull out and. so. did out the stand oh i did. it this is the visa because the money will kill. the scene of the best international feature award went to another round from denmark it looks at how alcohol impacts relationships. due to the cold at 900 pandemic the traditional red carpet was downsized and socially distanced a severely limited number of nominees and guests were allowed inside the venue at ellie's union station with cold and tested participants rotated in and out during the show. the show's television ratings in decline for years were predicted to be its lowest ever. that's represented but there were some fun moments like week
9:29 pm
dormant howling at the moon oh. oh oh oh oh. and glenn close doing the rope shaking dance in a sparkling blue dress. the movie industry is going through sweeping changes as streaming video rapidly overtakes cinematic releases of films but with all that the oscars remain hollywood and the film industry's most sought after prize and it's likely to stay that way for years to come rob reynolds al-jazeera los angeles let's get more on this don al hunt is the dean and professor of sociology and african-american studies at u.c.l.a. is also author of hollywood's divesting report for the university he joins us on skype from los angeles many thanks for taking the time to speak to us and al-jazeera what did you make of the oscars last night didn't take the right divesting boxes for you. well you know i think the us has
9:30 pm
a side show the important connection between what may be a history and work gives recognize you can you know ask is it did not make me diverse that homes in this year of course was one of the most the roshi years in history in terms of you know people of color and women in front of the camera behind the cameras he says we showed in our a good person belief last week and sure enough we have a huge number of nominations and we got you know a record number of robot wars the 1st 'd one a co-director to the 4 major acting categories who won but people of color and that's that's significant too big prizes best actor and actress didn't go to act as of color was that disappointing. you know some were controversial because the black messiah both of the actors they were were kind of considered in the supporting actor category there was no best best actor category you know so for the controversial no i think that some of the other nominees like chapter bozeman.
9:31 pm
so yeah it's a bit disappointing but not surprising given the history of the oscars but i think he did pick up some moves in other categories that were significant katie there has been some change but do you think i've old hollywood is doing enough to fix its track record when it comes to divest. you know it's definitely a continuing struggle we've come a long way baby boomer hollywood versus we're now 1614 we've seen a major uptick you know loser people of color of women 1st in television but most recently back in 2028 years and usually years because of the pandemic and the closure of the years and the rise of streaming we saw for the 1st time people of color reaching the poerson representation on the baby rolls in close to the corset representation leads so that's significant and i can't understate that it remains to be seen whether to continue once we start going back to business as usual in
9:32 pm
terms of some of the think there is a film produced we need to do a lot more work and it can work in terms of executive suites and the work of the people of color even women trying to get into the industry whether it is to work in front of the camera behind the camera and makeup what do you think it means to see people like the ones we've seen get oscars what does it mean to people that the diverse people. you know how it would i mean deal call it show this is for nothing it is a business but it also has a bigger cultural agency side the images that hollywood produces reflect it back to the nation and kind of gives a sense of news including not so with people of color or women or excluded or martial arts it's almost like symbolic annihilation is that they don't matter or that not as important and particularly when people around the world see these images they you know maybe they're sort of have these sort of assumptions about the
9:33 pm
way america works and significance not so homewood becomes an important player in sort of telling us who we are who we are and here we are we ought to be if of those reasons that this into the business that there is because we are more than 40 percent going out hollywood needs to be reflecting america's realities and telling that sort of us to think coronaviruses change forever the need for cinematic movies those big movies that you need to say in the cinema for. because as you say more of us are now sitting in front of our tavi streaming movies while you know tweeting on office do you think the type of movies being made is going to change going forward. you know that's a great question and we actually explore that in our new report. and the reality of course is technology has allowed us to watch the screen t.v. a she surround sound hole and we don't have to worry about being close exposed to
9:34 pm
everyone viruses in this particular era which is a huge concern i think you know that is something unique about the experience of watching a theater of big screen with other people and sharing that experience so my guess is that there probably will be some adjustments made in terms of the types of say blockbuster superhero films that acquire all the special effects in são that may get into size in terms of the actual lease releases but i think streaming is hearsay i think we're going to see more that remains to be seen exactly what the mix will be i don't think it will be like what we saw this year but you know i don't think that people will be going to the theater as much as they passed at the the mixes of the gunship in the coming years quite interesting to talk to don al hunt stan and professor of sociology and african-american studies at u.c.l.a. . still ahead on al-jazeera. the u.s. policing back on the scrutiny this time in kentucky we'll have the very latest and
