    Similar to drinking spoiled milk or really flat beer, this past Oscar ceremony has left a bad taste in my mouth, and I unfortunately cannot get it out. Even a week later, I am beyond disappointed and saddened by the 2022 Oscars. Regardless of the “Incident”, this was one of the worst Oscar ceremonies I have ever seen.

    Despite trying to give the producers and ABC the benefit of the doubt, everything I was afraid might happen came to pass. This past ceremony felt like an awkward mix of the People’s Choice Awards, the Teen Choice Awards, the Grammy Awards, and the ESPY Awards, with a mere pinch of Oscar prestige thrown in (unfortunately to no avail).

    The Academy and ABC have lost their way when it comes to airing the Oscars. By trying to appeal to everyone, they ended up satisfying no one. One of my biggest complaints is the tone of the show was all over the place. Whether it was hour to hour, or even commercial break to commercial break, it felt like I was watching completely different shows. Maybe the worst example was Regina Hall being made into a desperate spinster groping on presenters and then proceeding to honor a living legend in Francis Ford Coppola later on. How in the world do both of those things fit into the same show?

    Not to mention the other supposed “tribute” to James Bond was once again terrible. As I said in another thread, if you are going to do a tribute, do a proper one that truly honors the intended recipient. Anything else is not only a waste of time, but borderline disrespectful. Not to mention this was the second lame Bond tribute they have had this past decade.

    I did not mind them trying to shorten the show by presenting various awards earlier. But the way they went about it during the broadcast was all wrong. I thought they were going to do one segment honoring those winners, similar to how they used to highlight the sci-tech awards (speaking of, did they even do that this year). Instead of highlighting the earlier winners, it felt like they shoehorned the winners into the program. At times I honestly could not tell which awards were live and which were pre-taped. The way they went about this came off as disrespectful and just in poor taste. And to add insult to injury, the show was actually longer than last year, almost a staggering four hours.

    Sorry for the long post, but I am truly saddened and disappointed to see the Oscars come to this. If the Oscars want to continue on and survive long term, they need to figure out who they are. Whether it be a show focused on ratings, entertainment, and viral moments, or a prestige affair to honor Hollywood and film history, make a choice. The Oscars simply cannot go on as they currently are. If they continue to do so, I fear there will no longer be an Oscar telecast.

    Grammy’s had half the ratings as Oscar.

    Maybe ABC needs to stop appealing to the youth and stick to making a good show rooted it the art of film-making. People will watch if they want to watch.

    We noted when the Oscar ratings came out that dramatic, controversial ceremonies don’t necessarily translate to good ratings the next year, but it doesn’t seem strange to think that maybe a straightforward, mostly inoffensive ceremony like last night’s Grammys might convince more people to tune in next year. If the Oscars have a history of being a shitshow, and the Grammys have a history of being a pretty good time, maybe there will be a shift at some point where Music’s Biggest Night becomes more of a cultural event than the Oscars… but only in the sense that nobody is watching either of them anymore.

    Wow.
    Would the Academy weigh in on this? Or do they care that something is found to be plagiarised after the fact? (After winning the Oscar).
    I guess if he gave the student credit as in “Story by” or “inspired by”; everything would have been fine.

    Actually the Academy would have no worries to do anything because A Hero wasn’t nominated for any Oscars.

    Yes he did.
    He won International Feature Film twice – for A Separation in 2012 and for A Salesman in 2017.

    The Farhadi trial might be the stupidest thing, maybe ever? If A Hero wasn’t critical against Iranian law, he wouldn’t have lost.

    Have not seen CODA, but trying to be positive for a change: my favorite thing about the ceremony was the overall support for the film. Having all the actors wave in lieu of clapping every time it won was pretty wholesome, and Troy Kotsur gave what was easily the best speech of the night.

    The headline and article have been updated and a correction issued – he has been indicted, not found guilty. Indictment is one early step in court proceedings.

    Oscar-Winning Iranian Director Asghar Farhadi Indicted on Plagiarizing Charges for ‘A Hero’

    An earlier version of this story wrongly claimed that Farhadi had been found guilty of plagiarism.

    Severance in drama series, writing, Adam Scott for best actor, Ben Stiller for drama directing, and the whole cast in supporting.
