    This story showed up at Deadline Hollywood.

    Lots of speculation what this means – subject is the future of the Academy.

    Maybe they’ll suggest eliminating the acting categories and make it a “hall of fame” each year instead (I can dream…)

    Haha, the acting categories (well, Best Actress mostly) are the only categories beside BP that the casual viewer cares about.

    To me, the phrase “The Future of Our Academy” suggests that it has more to do with the Academy istelf than with the Academy Awards. Or maybe they’re one and the same.

    Maybe they’re going to expand some categories from 5 nominees to 6, or they’re going to shrink the BP nominees back down.

    One guess is that they want to focus on the museum they have long been planning to build, and the fundraising it would involve.

    Another though in terms of the future is what will qualify for Oscars in the future. Within a few years, theatrical release with no VOD may be a thing of the past so what media the Academy should include is possibily the single most important question they face.

    It’s possible they want to alert members to decisions that BoG needs to make – going back to 5 BP nominees,  the date of the awards, key things like that. A lot of members didn’t like that 10 BP slots were thrust at them with no prior alert that this was up in the air.

    They’re going back to 5 best pictures probably, etc.
    Also to never hire Seth Macfarlane as host again.
    And never, ever snub Affleck again either

    Maybe they are adding a category. Maybe this is the year they finally add the much-deserved “Best Stunt Coordination” category. (or something to honor the stunt teams on a movie)
