For several years now we’ve gotten used to the fact that the Academy Awards falls on a Sunday night. It’s given us an opportunity to plan lavish parties, complete with Oscar scorecards and your aunt’s favorite chips and dip recipe. The last time the Oscars were held during the week was back in 1999, when they took place on Monday night – and now, according to Variety, the Academy is thinking about shifting back to Monday in 2013 in order to avoid any conflicts with the NFL.
I rather look at the results then see the Oscars on a Monday. I do remember a little bit of the 1999 Academy Awards but I was young at the time. Now things are different for me now, it would be hard for some people who work, and they miss something they wanted to see. The Oscars is going to be 82 years old, even the Golden Globes is coming on its 68th year, and of course, you have the Emmys which is today. Therefore, if the Golden Globes and Emmy Awards are on the Sunday then so should the Oscars. It may not matter to some people but matters to the rest of world who watch it. Now I see four 3 to 6 films a month 30 to 40 films a year just because I love movies, I am studying film and sould editing, and I hope that the Academy doesn't change.
Heck no. Monday Nights is really a bad idea!!!!! I do love the movies but come on! Monday nights? People are coming home from work. I know we all can tape or set our DVR's but some of us are still using VCRS or may not even own a machine. Its always nice to spend the afternoon to start watching the red carpet despite any political event that is going on outside. Actually I hated the idea when they change the month from march to February. It totally messed up my ski weekends. The guys definately did not want to watch the Oscars but they did. Besides going to the movies I only go maybe once or twince in a month unless there are some really good ones out. If I was being paid to review movies I would do it in a heart beat.
It really does not matter. They are allsooo into themselves.
I would agree if the movie industry didn't attract millions, even billions of dollars. Even with the economy the way it is, people are shelling out $20, $30, $40, $50 and even more to go see a two hour movie. The Oscars are this industry's ultimate award. There would have to be a lot of interest out there.
who gives a sh*t lol
growing up for me, oscars were always on mondays. i personally dont think it should matter. if people are worried about parties, that shouldnt be an issue. anybody who takes off mondays after oscars should be able to get tuesday off as well if they want to party thru the night to celebrate a best picture movie that 75% of the general public probably never saw since its probably gonna be some independent flick small town theatres don't show.
Me personally, I'm horrified at the idea. Call me lame, but the Oscars is the one event of the year I genuinely plan for. Barring any kind of disaster, I am there every year watching the red carpet events from the moment they start airing in the morning to the after party. If they happen on a Monday - well, that cuts down on watching the cool stuff that happens during the day. I can't take off a day of work for the Oscars...I need the money. I hope they stay on Sunday.
I realize that this admission makes me sound like I have no life or whatever, but I enjoy the Oscars when they come on.
No it's not like the oscars are all that important in the first place, It's not like the movie going public get to vote on any of these movies as winners, which means only the most p.c movies win every year, or the movies that push the biggest liberal left agenda.
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
