The Oscars are shedding their own serious news

The Oscars are shedding their own serious news

The Oscars are also subject to quota printing. However, the introduction of a category for popular films and the three-hour limitation of duration are not a good omen.

$ 195 million – this is the youngest Oscar Prize recorded for the best film in the world. Shape of Water, the wet dream of romantic aquatic humanoids, stands out from the conventional Oscar commodity. However, popularity can not be denied to him, as is the competition for Get Out or Dunkirk. What, then, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced with her Introduction of an Oscar for special results in the popular film? It is the first new category from the animation film Oscar 2001 and its version has already become more preventive for observers Serious speeches at the Academy Awards bedridden. Further changes will influence the award in the coming years. So the duration of the event must be reduced to three hours and from 2020 follows with a previous date a serious cut during the Oscar season and the operation of the film festival. While the reduction of the annoying season of the Awards can be welcomed, the other decisions testify the fundamental ambiguities of the Academy. One is the question of what makes the Oscars an entertainment show in reality – the other even the Hollywood self-image.

The unofficial "Oscar Disney"?

Another figure: 26.5 million American viewers have watched Shape of Water this year Oscar for the best film collected. It was the worst vote in the history of the television broadcast of the award. In fact, the launch of the new category of an Oscar "Popular Movies" in 2019 escapes a jubilee. Because before the awards ceremony in 2010, the number of candidates for the best film from five to ten has been extended. This was read as an attempt to turn successful viewers into Oscar viewers. Critics and favorite viewers like The Dark Knight should no longer be ignored. The odds actually have increased in this year by Avatar vs. Hurt-Locker, but since 2014 there has been a steady decline that the Academy now wants to neutralize. The press was created by ABC station, which will show the prize at least until 2028. A Variety report states that ABC has proposed changes, including the shorter term, the previous date and a category for the "Best Blockbuster". Because during the prizes generally with fall rates fight, the decline in the Oscar is relatively drastic.

"Blockbuster" is not in the title of the new category, but what is meant by "popular" other? The criteria for the "popular" stamp are still unknown, but the way it hardly passes in front of the American box office. The strategy is transparent. Smaller films like Moonlight, but also medium-sized films like Shape of Water often start at the box office after their victory at the Oscars. The "blockbuster" category will ensure that a large-scale film is awarded on the evening of the prize, unless the prizes in the technical categories, the camera or the direction are considered quite prominent. Imagine a pre-selection of the most successful films at the US box office, from which members of the Academy choose the best of popular films. From last year, The Beauty and the Beast, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Wonder Woman, Jumanji 2 and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in question, depending on how the Christmas season is run . Because ABC is a subsidiary of the Disney Group and three of the five most successful films in the US market in 2017 come from Disney, lies I suspect an unofficial Disney Oscar close. This year, Black Panther is considered the blockbuster that could earn nominations in the major categories at the Oscars. Oscar's popularity may have put him out of the way thanks to the introduction of a two-k company (l) assen in the way. Why nominate for the right Oscar when he gets the equivalent of a respectable MTV Movie Award?

Ernst and entertainment are again separated at the Oscars
