It's another year, which means the Academy Awards must figure out a way to make themselves stand out yet again as Hollywood's premiere awards ceremony and a must-see television event. According to Deadline, one of the things they're considering is moving up the awards ceremony to January. It'd be a bold move, and not only would it place the ceremony in direct competition with other major events like the Golden Globes and the Super Bowl, but it would also shorten the campaigning season and make it so voters would have a lot less time to see films, especially the ones coming out during the holidays in late December.
The move it SHOULD make is from Sunday to Saturday. Here in the real world, people have to get up early on Monday, so it's difficult to arrange an Oscar party on a Sunday, and the day after either you're tired from staying up until midnight the night before (in order to know who won most of the major awards) or you have to wait until Monday morning to find out the winners. Have it on Saturday, encourage people to throw parties to watch together, and watch the ratings go up.
Doesn't matter they'll still be the number one award. But on a side note who nominates more people for an award, by doubling the number of nominees?
It should come at the very end of the awards season, but, not 4 to 6 weeks after the Golden Globes/SAG awards, as i the current timeline. So, the final sunday of Jan or first sunday of Feb would seem to be the perfect end. But, then, what will all the entertainment shows/blogs/groupies have to jones on if they can't have 6 weeks of Oscar buzz to tune into everyday....I know, maybe a good book?
Alot of ppl watch the super bowl espicially me. They probably move it after the super bowl week instead the same date and time.
The Oscars now suck only because the most politically correct movie always wins. It's stupid and a facade no longer about actually good movies but political correctness. I'm kinda sick of it, maybe next year we will see an actually good movie win.
Please desist with the endless campaigning season. Make it shorter. Not everyone watches the Super Bowl and certainly not the Golden Globes. If you care about movies, you care about the Oscar's which means you'd rather see it sooner than later. With a shorter season, maybe some of the films from the beginning of the year will get noticed again. The problem with the Oscar's in recent years has been the show itself. Everyone second guessing themselves with humor and what should be the "theme" or "message" this year. Too many marketers in the house and not enough actual talent being used for the writing. Its become more interesting to watch the fashion show at the beginning when they walk the red carpet than the actual awards show.
The problem with the Oscars isn't when. The problem is in Hollywood. The movies that are in contention for the Oscars aren't the ones that a lot of people are seeing. Whenever the gap widens between the movies that people are seeing and those that are winning awards, both Hollywood and the Oscars suffer. The Oscars won't be relevant again until the quality of movies the public is seeing improves.
I don't care either way, but the earlier in the year the less some off the older movies will be overlooked so I think it could be a good thing.
I agree, I am an avid movie-goer, and I would love to see the academy not forget any of the earlier( in the year) great movies, and after Christmas, sometimes January can be a let down, so this would be a great day to look forward to. Plus don't forget, the clothes the stars wear, is the second best part of the Academy Awards. Everyone, especially me, loves to see what all the stars are wearing. vegas50s
