  1. So the academy won’t televise the editing, cinematography, makeup and live action short categories. It’s really sad how desperate they are to get better ratings that they’re trying stuff like this. I think we are a few years away from the Oscars being shown exclusively on a streaming service. they’re probably gonna invent a category that fans can vote for as well.

    1. Hi Eddie, yes I remember when they televised all the technical categories as well. Now they have a short summary of these awards that are held at a separate ceremony.

    2. Honestly, the Oscars should go that route and the service can make it an all day event with no time limitations.

    3. So they caved in and will televise all categories. I guess they won’t make the 3 hour broadcast they promised ABC.

      1. I don’t even know how this is an issue at this point. They have made 90 of them prior, so the time frame isn’t a surprise. You want to complain about the dwindling ratings, that’s fine, but ABC bid on the rights to the telecast, and that’s part of the risk they take.

        They should put this much effort into improving the overall quality of the show, and give people a reason to watch it; adding a most popular film category, omitting a host, limiting musical acts to 90 seconds, and removing awards that people worked (and campaigned) hard for isn’t the way to do it.

  2. Picking up on Patrick’s comments on Roma and the Netflix association, Scorsese is currently finishing his movie The Irishman starring Deniro, Pacino and Peschi, a Netflix funded film with a limited release late this year- and therefore available for Oscar contention – with no confirmed distribution that I’m aware of. It will be interesting to see how this will be received by the academy.

    1. Netflix always announces distribution for their films rather late(like when they first drop the trailer). But I’m sure Irishman will get a Roma like treatment(by Netflix standards it did get a pretty significant release). As far as the bias Patrick mentions the academy might have against Netflix films, I work in the industry(my office is actually down the street from Netflix) and have friends who work in the academy. Netflix has spent more on their oscar campaign than any other film this year, more than any film in many years. They hosted so many private screenings for academy and guild members, have sent them all nice swag(huge coffee table book, signed posters from cuaron, chocolates etc), and its a pretty great film by an oscar winning director, so I think any bias towards Netflix has been overcome. Still I could see an upset by blackkklansman, but regardless Netflix is here to stay and more and more respected directors will continue to work with them(Cuaron, Scorsese, Coen brothers, Paul greengrass, Steven soderbergh, its sort of a crazy list already) It sort of bums me out that they are destroying the theatrical experience, but so many of these directors have said studios won’t fund their films and Netflix is very hands off with them as far as the production goes, so I guess they sort of have no choice. Btw, Roma looks and sounds amazing on the big screen, it’s sort of sad that most people only got to see it streaming(though most people wound never pay to see it in a theater anyway)

      1. That said, I’m looking forward to The Irishman. First time Pacino is being directed by Scorsese- hope he goes back to the old Pacino instead of his recent over the top performances- then again he is playing Hoffa so we will wait and see.
