Heeeeey! Let’s have some fun. What changes would you make to any award show? I’d make changes to the Golden Globes. Here are my changes…
-Getting rid of the musical in the Comedy Category. Not all musicals are funny. Actually, most aren’t. Plus, I’d include TV movies in the Motion Pictures categories.
-Limited Shows will complete in the in the TV categories. Plus, I’d add supporting categories for Drama and Comedy for TV. I would also add a directing and Screenplay category for TV.January 10, 2021 at 7:25 pm #1203975368
The Golden Globes should just let Foreign Language & Animated Films be eligible for Drama & Musical/Comedy. I don’t understand why they haven’t changed that rule when its caused nothing but trouble for them over the last few years.January 10, 2021 at 7:27 pm #1203975375
Id move the max nominess in the acting categories to kinda match the picture category. 8 nominees per category for actor, actress, supp.
A little bit of Magic never hurt anybody.

I would remove the distinction between Best Actor and Best Actress at the Oscars. The categories would be “Best Leading Performance” and “Best Supporting Performance,” each with 10 nominees.
However, I would change the voting system so that Academy members have multiple votes. Acting nominees would have to hit a certain percentage of the vote to win… which means there could be multiple winners!
And if no nominee hits that threshold, then Oscars are awarded to the top 2. So there would be a minimum of 2 Oscars awarded per acting category— maybe more!

I would like to see the end of separating performance categories along arbitrary sexual boundaries that don’t exist in any sphere except the cultural. The Grammys already do this, and it works just fine! There’s no need for there to be four acting categories at places like the Oscars, especially given that 75-90% of the performances nominated in any given year are trash anyway. Don’t even need to increase nominee slots in the two resulting categories–just five lead nominees and five supporting nominees.January 10, 2021 at 11:58 pm #1203975588
Delete the original song category and rename Best Original Score with Best Original Music like BAFTA and award songwriters when they have contributed with considerable material and not just one or two songs, unless they have composed the entire score.
Include Best Stunt/Choreography Coordination as a new category.
Have a committee in the actors’ branch that places actors in their respective categories: leading and supporting, avoiding category fraud. After that, release a longlist of eligible actors in each acting category before voting.
Allow actors to be able to get more than one nomination in an acting category.
Include the director(s) and a couple of producers alongside the country as nominees/winners in Best International Feature Film.
Combine Best Live Action Short Film and Best Documentary Short Subject in one Best Short Film.January 11, 2021 at 1:31 am #1203975616

These 3 points are so good. Original Song can be left to Grammys.
I also suggest that they should hold a pre-ceremony (like Grammys) to award categories like makeup/costume/short film/live action/documentary/VFX/sound and shorten the runtime of main ceremony.
Let’s face it: No GP want to watch a 3-hr award ceremony with 23 categories and a bunch of long political speeches now.

I never understood Best Original Song.
Score, yes!January 11, 2021 at 2:24 am #1203975650
Original song is a good category. It has made some good movies Academy winners. I don’t support ending the gendered acting categories. It’s fine as it is so that no one would scream misogyny when eight men deservedly get nominated alongside two women.
However, I’d bring back the divided sound categories and add a category for viewers favourite film (the once rumoured popular film).
The Comedy Globe doesn’t need to be abolished. It has given us interesting races in some years.
Riz Ahmed- Best Actor for Sound Of Metal
Daniel Kaluuya - Best Supporting Actor for Judas and the Black Messiah
Amanda Seyfried - Best Supporting Actress for MankJanuary 11, 2021 at 3:02 am #1203975656
I think merging the gender acting categories would add on to the political crop that is already a problem.January 11, 2021 at 3:36 am #1203975672
-I agree that we need a stunt category and a choreography category at the Oscars
-Each acting category should be expanded to 6 slots, there’s much more to choose from than there once was and I think our awards should reflect that
-I think the preferential ballot either needs to apply to all above the line categories OR do away with it all together

– Casting directors merit recognition so the Oscars should have a casting category just like the Emmys.
– Documentaries should be allowed to compete in Best Picture and Director.

I wish the Academy invited again other actors / actresses to play tribute to the nominated performers of the year (like they did in 2009 and 2010).January 11, 2021 at 8:29 am #1203976224
The Golden Globe should bring back the category of Best Documentary and include a category of Best Adapted Screenplay.
The Gotham Awards should include the categories of Best Supporting Actor and Actress.

Remove the Best Short Films categories from the televised ceremony.
Have the Globes split the supporting categories into C/M and Drama.
Add Best Casting, Best Stunt Ensemble, and Best Voiceover/Motion-Capture Performance.
Have long-lists before nominations.
Have a great day if you see this!
