    I wonder how much pressure ABC is putting these producers under and why they are “begging” for certain changes. I think ABC gave them some goals they have to meet which may be impossible without making these changes.

    It’s funny how the mess that is the ceremony reflects the mess that is awards season this year.

    Between the films that received nominations, the ones that were left out, and those that are racking up all the wins, it only seems fitting that the ceremony matches the lack of quality.

    It doesn’t have to do with fairness. It’s not like performing a song at the Oscars boosts your chance of winning, since the votes are already counted. It has to do with the ratings. If you want to perform at the Oscars, your song needs among the most commercially successful nominees.

    They announced who is going to perform or not before the voting started, so… It’s like they’re saying: “choose between the 2″…

    Having only two songs performed would be like showing the clips of only two performances of the five nominated,a disrespect.I was happy to see all the songs are being performed but 90 fucking seconds? A disaster.

    I’m glad that all 5 songs are being performed. I don’t have a problem with the 90-second performances… it will basically be the length of an American Idol contestant’s performance. I have a feeling they MIGHT give “Shallow” a couple of extra seconds… and maybe “All The Stars” as well, while the others get shorter times.

    So…

    Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper – “Shallow”
    Jennifer Hudson – “I’ll Fight”
    Kendrick Lamar & SZA – “All The Stars”
    Probably Willie Nelson or Tim Blake Nelson – “When A Cowboy…”
    Probably Celine Dion or Idina Menzel – “The Place Where Lost Things Go”
    (Although… they could go younger for ratings and get Kelly Clarkson or Ariana Grande)

    I dont believe that the songs are gonna be 90 seconds. Just because they say each song has 90 seconds, it doesnt mean they are gonna follow it. They are gonna let a few songs go past 90 seconds (cough, shallow, cough)

    I remember talking about the Oscars about ten or so years ago on another forum and someone asked why do they even perform the whole song for the Best song nominees as it’s giving way more attention to that category than the others. He then said we don’t devote 3-4 minutes for all the Best Cinematography/Best Editing/Best Live Action Short film nominees. Obviously back in the 90s and so on, soundtrack songs were huge commercial successes and having the likes of Celine Dion sing “My Heart Will Go On” would attract viewers even if it was like the 100th time she sang it on live or live-ish television.

    One of my favorite ceremonies was the 2001 one where Yo Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman performed the Best Score nominees. That ceremony was one of my faves as it felt breezy and Steve Martin kept things going. It was also a bit understated and classy rather than overblown.

    I just thought- if they want somebody “famous” to present acting awards it means Sam Rockwell will be sitting in the room (cause he is nominated for “Vice”) and watching  somebody else presenting Best Supporting Actress Oscar because he, Rockwell, is not good enough to present that award!!! WTF!

    They might do what the globes did(having both rockwell and janney present supporting actress together and had someone else present supporting actor). Mcdormand hasnt presented at all during award season. So it makes sence to have someone else do best actor. As long as they have oldman presenting actress, im fine with other presenters for the acting categories.

    They better be prepared to see an all-time low in ratings. What they are doing is byeond disrespectful. How I wish Laura Dern had become the Academy president…
