READ IT ALL!
I recently saw a great comment on a Jezebel article, where a user named The Real Janelle said “The Academy Awards are like the Who’s [sic] Line Is It Anyway of award shows; the points don’t matter and the answers are made up.” I mean DAMN. Truth, son! The Oscars have done the inevitable, following all other award shows and becoming parodies of themselves, of Hollywood, of the whole movie industry and its old-fashioned, out-dated gatekeepers. Like any award show for any sort of art or really for whatever, the winners aren’t necessarily the best; they are just whoever was most popular and seen as least threatening in certain ways at the time of voting. While of course I would like to think that the Academy Awards are somewhat above that, I know it’s just wishful thinking. But, even so, I love this particular popularity contest and I will continue to hold out hope that this year was just a fluke, an outlier in its continued march towards acceptance and growth and diversity that we will see in years to come as it becomes a reflection of what happens more and more in the industry. I have big hopes.
