Do these awards shows not understand? They've become so convoluted. Cut the shlt, we're here to see the awards.

For the longest time people have been complaining that the show is too long. Now they want to fix it. Ofc some people will criticize that. But the Oscars have to make money somehow and they can't do that without cutting the length. An Oscar is still an Oscar, just like the Grammys. At least that's how I see it.

If by that they mean that we won't have to sit through 3-4 hrs or pretentiousness and boredom, go head but if they will add more commercials they may as well air all the awards doing the commercials...

So you want a 5 hr show? Didn’t Lady Gaga talk them into having everyone perform their song, too?

They should just have a pre-ceremony like the Grammys and air WAY less.

That way everyone gets a televised moment, but the GP don't have to watch.

Best Original Song is going to be one of their biggest "moments" this year, why would they remove it from the telecast? :dies:

This. Instead of only 2 of the 5 nominees getting like 3-4 minutes of performing she wanted it to be equal and give everyone 90 seconds

One Nation thought he was doing something, huh?

 

OT: They keep announcing the dumbest decisions. Wonder if there is a new team or something ‘cause it looks like it’s about to be a shitshow.

Scandalous

I'm fine with this if it means it isn't on for almost 4 hours like the grammys :rip: Oscars should really be kept to 2.5 hours max

animated short and doc short should be on commercial way more than Cinematography and Editing.

I don't understand why they have to push certain categories to commercials when there's no host. Shouldn't that mean there's MORE time for awards? :rip:
