At the end of the day though, people should take the oscars less seriously.


The Oscars have so much cultural capital really. They’re ruining it more every year though.

The best picture category is the least cultural relevant at this point though.

I think best director is probably the most telling at this point. It’s the one category that seems to be idiot proof. Since the directors pick the nominees in their category, I would want them to vote for all categories. It's obvious the body as a whole have no idea about what filmmaking entails when Bohemian Rhapsody wins for editing in both film and sound, and Green Book wins for best screenplay. That screenplay is legit horrific after having read 20 pages of it, it reads like a 14 year old idiot's debut screenplay.

But just look at the best picture winners since 1994 and how so many of them have become jokes in culture.

There’s like 5 choices that went to one of the best movies of the year.


Literally no one at the office mentioned the oscars, and my coworkers love to chit chat by the coffee machine. They don't really matter to anyone any more.

People talk about the Oscars, though. It might not just be you, but people talk and they still have weight.

I don't think it's the most important thing ever in film, but saying "they don't matter to anyone any more" is just not accurate.

I say that as someone who generally dislikes award shows, the Oscars, and certainly wishes they didn't matter to anyone anymore

The best talents and work is in Television, the movie industry at the moment are in a continuous state of mediocrity.
