Distribution of male and female characters in top-grossing films 2019, by ethnicity

In 2019, seven percent of all female characters appearing in the top 100 domestic grossing films that year in the United States were Asian, down from ten percent in the previous year. The source noted in its 2018 report that the unusually high share of female Asian characters in the highest grossing movies was influenced by the release of 'Crazy Rich Asians'. The share of male Asian characters in 2019 was even lower at six percent, though the ethnic group with the least representation in Hollywood's top movies remained Latin American individuals.
