“Cinematography and editing are probably the ‘elementary particles,’ the primordial components of cinema. It’s an unfortunate decision.”https://www.thewrap.com/oscars-move-categories-commercial-breaks-outrage/http://archive.is/ncgSC
the absolute state
Eventually they will be shown online only. Nobody fucking cares about awards shows anymore.
>watching the (((academy))) awardsstill?
>>109835267This actually tops Black Panther's nomination for how terrible it is.
>>109835348basically what it is now
Ha ha, the Hollywood Liberal Circle Jerk gets slapped in the face with reality - stuff costs money, and they don't have enough viewers of their spectacle.
>>109835267Goddamn the Oscars are the real Limbo champions of the world. Just when you think they can't go any lower they find a way.
Directors are the most overrated element of film making especially now with digital technology
>>109835267Honestly, the people who vote for this shit don't know jack about editing or cinematography.
>>109835267>cinematography and editing are commercial break-tierwhy do the Oscars even exist?Movie buffs, "movie buffs", pseuds, legit artists, people interested in film, etc. all know it's garbage and only watch it for shitposting material because the nominees and winners are mid-tier swill. But it's also too smart for normies because there isn't enough capeshit and movies about talking dogs, so they think it's boring pretentious trash (which it is).So it's targeting itself towards a fictional "middle ground" audience. Don't they realize that's why viewership keeps dwindling?
>>109835267i bet they didnt cut down any Celebrity's shitty speech for thisim so glad the Academy stopped being a celebration of Cinematic preformance and is now just Twitter live
>>109835267Anon that would mean that other films that DONT fit in to Hollywood identity politics would get noticed for cinematography and editing
>>109835267>Cinematography and editingIt's like they don't actually care about filmmaking, and it's just a huge PR event for actors.
>>109835267Why not just cancel this whole thing? Seriously, no one would give a fuck. Even members of the Academy could probably find some other job. Let's do this.
>>109835921Yeah, that's pretty much it. And directors pay to win. Oooh such talent!
Who's fucking watching the oscars anymore?
It’s not really as bad as it first appears.>According to the email Bailey sent to members, the four categories will be presented during commercial breaks in the Oscar telecast, but live-streamed on Oscar.com and on the Academy’s social media accounts. They will then be “slightly edited” and will appear later on during the telecast, which will save time by eliminating the winners’ walks to the stage.
>>109835267Disney seriously bought the whole show isn't it?First they force their movies in every category possible, then now remove categories showing that their movies were made by hack for easy cashgrab.They also wanted the whole Avengers crew to host the event.What's next? the premiere of the new Star Wars trailer mid show?
>>109835267Nowadays I'm more excited for the video game awards than the academy, since is so bad it is fun, while the other is just bad and sometimes enraging.Just let it die.
a huge chunk of oscars audience is young black people, they don't really understand what cinematography is, so you might as well cut it They are just pandering to the demo's that watch the show
There are other awards more irrelevant like sound or visual effects, but they will not dump those to comercials because Black panther is going to win.
>>109835267Disney owned ABC not broadcasting the categories that failed to nominate any Disney movies.Take the hint, (((Hollywood))).
>>109835267They're getting desperateJUST
Award shows aren't award shows anymore, haven't been in a long time. They're circlejerks, they're Hollywood trying to have their equivalent of the Super Bowl to sell ads, they're infomercials for the calendar year's lineup of products, and more recently, they're annual summits on social issues. No one watches award shows anymore, the audience they used to have evaporated. The viewers they still get are viewers that still watch shitty big four procedurals because they're too old, poor, or technologically out-of-touch for anything beyond terrestrial network channels. These jagoffs still posturing themselves as arbiters of culture is like a burned out Elvis Presley reaching the end of his days, still acting like this sexy superstar while his audience was nothing anymore but senior women. Young trendy people don't care about you anymore. They watch puerile superhero movies and put all their trust into the opinions of some asshole on YouTube with a wall of action figures as a backdrop doing a top 10 movies of the year video. Hollywood is still making their money, but the old guard of middlemen have become redundant. And That's A Good Thing™
>>109835267Wow lol.This is honestly a good time to start another award show with integrity. The Oscars have managed to tank their credibility and make it extremely political.It's a #FuckWhitePeople #YesAllMen celeb circlejerk glamour cuck gala now.
>>109835921If you win an oscar that's not on the main event the press doesnt even give a fuck about you just take a picture and await the main ones
>>109835267yeah i mean fuck cinematography and editing, its not like its important to the filmNOW SPECIAL EFFECTS THATS WHAT WE NEED IN MOVIES
>>109837069>tfw unchained melody was most likely when elvis realized he wasn't super sexy anymore and was wheezing >still sang his heart out
>>109835267“In the history of CINEMA, masterpieces have existed without sound, without color, without a story, without actors and without music,” he tweeted. “No one single film has ever existed without CINEMAtography and without editing.”
>>109836314O NO NO NO NO NO NO
>>109835267This is a sad reflexion on the industry.What makes cinema what it is doesn't matter anymore.
