    Wow did they ask Freeman for which categories to take out and the negotiation phase was for one Netflix win to go to commercial break?

    And just like that, it’s confirmed: I am not watching this year’s ceremony. Sorry guys, no live snarking this year. It’s absolutely disgusting how they treat people working behind the scenes.

    And yet we could’ve had Laura Dern after Isaacs and instead we got a downgrade.

    4 categories not presented live: -Best Cinematography

    Sad.

    Also, why is Documentary Short being aired live but not Live Action Short? I’m confused…

    Vice’s only 2 award wins are going to be handed out during commercial.

    Cinematography and Editing are both big awards and such important aspects of the craft of film. It’s utterly ridiculous that they’re not being presented live. How can you possibly justify having say Production Design and Sound Editing in the main telecast and Cinematography and Editing in the commercial break? It’s like they pulled the categories out of a hat.

    It seems like they’re doing it somewhat randomly which is good, and obviously if they keep doing this it will be different every year. I didn’t think we’d get to see the winners speeches at all, so it’s good to know they will air during the broadcast.

    I wish they kept in film editing this year since it’s one of the more unpredictable categories this year.

    I haven’t been around in years but I’m back just to say John Bailey sucks and needs to be removed as pres ASAP. This commercial-break thing is a disgrace.

    This whole ceremony is a going to be a whole ass mess yikes.

    I feel like a film heretic for saying this but it kind of makes sense this year to decide not to televise Cinematography as Alfonso Cuarón is the far-out frontrunner and he’ll likely make at least two more trips to the podium, possibly three. So purely from a presentational point of view, they made the right call here.

    Looks like they really screwed Vice over though, as neither of its two likeliest wins will be televised.

    Trying to be positive about the commercial presentation awards by simply saying at least it is only 4 awards and not more.

    Also, I find it strange that Margot Robbie has not been announced as a presenter yet even though she was name dropped in that article about the controversy of presenters. But so far, the list isn’t that appealing to me.

    Stupid, stupid, stupid. If this were covered on ESPN’s Dan Le Batard radio show, his sidekick would say ‘Oscars; the Stugotz is strong in you.’

    Must-do: combine the sound categories, put the documentaries and shorts on the commercial break grid. Add stunt coordination. Cut out 2 production numbers, minimum.

    I swear if they try to do tacky bits involving giving out food or surprising pedestrians I’m suing. Even without a host, I wouldn’t put it past them to do something like this cus they think it appeals to viewers, which it rarely does.

    I’ll join and we can make this a class-action lawsuit.

    Gross. Pathetic. Outrageous. Disgusting. Horrible.
