That's half of the actors included in the annual Oscar-season celebration!
Vanity Fair just released the cover of its annual Hollywood Issue, and there is something refreshingly different about this year's installment.
As a point of comparison, this is the 2010 Hollywood Issue cover.
This is the 2005 Hollywood Issue cover.
And this is the 2000 Hollywood Issue cover.
Annnnd now back to the 2014 cover — where six of the twelve actors are people of color.
The people of color on the 2014 Hollywood Issue cover are 12 Years a Slave's Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom's Idris Elba, Fruitvale Station's Michael B. Jordan…
This year, for the first time, two people of color (Ejiofor and Elba) appear on the cover, before the fold.
…12 Years a Slave's Lupita Nyong'o, Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom's Naomie Harris, and 42's Chadwick Boseman.
A rep for Vanity Fair did not immediately respond to BuzzFeed's request for comment.
