    Their new format sounds dull without live press in the audience.

    I just hope it’s not the disaster that was the Grammy nominations announcement last year.

    Is anyone happy about this?

    Nope. I prefer the old format.
    Academy President and a previous nominee take the stage and announce:
    Supporting Actress
    Supporting Actor
    Actress
    Actor
    Directing
    Original Screenplay
    Adapted Screenplay
    Foreign Language Film
    Animated Feature Film
    Best Picture

    What’s the point of announcing every category when categories such as editing or costume design are announced by film title only?! It’s disrespectful to the individuals to not hear their names called as is the case with writers, directors, producers. And now I fear them going in a direction that’s more People’s Choice than Academy Awards. And while we’re at that (and I’m probably really old-fashioned for somebody in his 20s), please go back to 89th Academy Awards. Not just the Oscars.

    I don’t think they only announced film titles for below-the-line categories if I’m not mistaken. Otherwise, we wouldn’t have gotten that Dick Pope/Dick Poop moment at the announcement in 2015.

    I’m hoping for another one of those Dick Poop moments. The irony of it was that Isaacs had made an effort to get those difficult Polish names from Ida correct right before blowing it with Dick Poop.

    I’m ambivalent about this news, but I’ll be content as long as they stick to alphabetical order instead of trying to be cute with this “no particular order” bullshit to create suspense like when Seth MacFarlene and Emma Stone did it.

    Cinematography is not a below-the-line category. Cinematography and Score had names of the nominated individuals, but nothing else.

    But it worked to great effect in the directing category, because it took so long for people to realize that the two front-runners were snubbed. The gasp after the category so much fun.

    I just care about whether the right people/films are nominated. As long as Justin Bieber and Kanye West aren’t announcers, I don’t care who’s announcing.

    So this is why TNT (Latin America) made a big deal of the Oscar nods during the Globes. I didn’t quite understand why they would suddenly decide to air a nominations special.

    LOL at these people, they’re really trying way too hard with #oscarssowhite. Meanwhile, I can imagine that meeting.
    -Cheryl: We need Asians, remember #oscarssowhite. Find me an Asian nominee.
    -Assistant: We’ve only nominated three in about 60 years. One’s dead. And who knows where Rinko Kikuchi is.
    -Cheryl: Well…call Ken Watanabe then. Or…find me another directing nominee who’s not Ang Lee.
    -Assistant: Cheryl, please…

    NOOOOOOO! They are gonna ruin my Oscar nominations morning!

    Just bring back the old tradicional format: Academy president + Oscar winner/nominee = 10 categories.
