Makes a lot of sense to me. “Never has the gap been wider than the movies that win and the movies that people want to see.”

There is even a reference to “Trumpian philosophy” is that article. :lol:

Doesn’t matter to me. I don’t watch the Oscar ceremony and I don’t choose which movies I watch based on Oscar wins or nominations anyway.

The Oscars is such a load of bollocks. The movie industry somehow managed to persuade millions of people to sit through a 4 hour infomercial consisting of a load of over-paid people telling each other how freaking awesome they are, and now they want us to start debating the result of the bogus competition as though it actually freaking matters.

I used to watch them for the red-carpet arrivals. That was the interesting part -- seeing all the pretty people exiting their limos and the glam threads they were wearing. The crowds, the energy . . . but once the presentations began, it was :yawn:

Now they've sold out their artistic integrity to pander to popular public opinion, you'll need to start watching.

No more documentaries exploring the existential crisis suffered by Beethoven in his later years. From now on it's gonna be tits and pussy FTW!
