    It’s not surprising their ratings are collapsing, Oscars have alienated the general public with their elitary choices in the last years.

    Yeah. Hollywood is looking out of touch. Movie Stars still sell. Bullock had 1 success this year. Same with Roberts. Cruise. Leo. Maybe The Rock. Maybe Joaquin Phoenix. Maybe Lady Gaga

    ‘House of Gucci’ as you well know, was the best the R rated drama box office smash of the last two years that people actually went to see it (and if they didn’t got to see it, it still topped digital-physical sales and streams).

    All the awards bodies recognized it, from the oldest elitary critic circle NYFCC, to the most elitary industry awards (BAFTA), I’m not saying HOG should have won something, but giving it some nominations more (costume + actress + movie) wouldn’t have hurt them, it’s not that CODA (a Hallmark Disney channel movie) who even won, ‘Belfast’, ‘Don’t look up’, ‘King Richard’ or ‘Nightmare Alley’ were a David Lynch masterpiece, the contrary other than being mediocre movies they were all flops.

    They lost an occasion.
    (And it wasn’t a case they still needed Gaga to be there presenting the most important category at the end).

    They better not screw up with Top Gun this year, because that is the movie they need to be most nominated there like Titanic if they want to attire a bit of audience attention.

    Darling, from my experience in my country, I’ve watched: Watched EEAAO in a half empty theatre. 2 people walkout during the movie (wasn’t exactly an Oscar movie, but still pretty sad that original movie like this not being celebrated enough outside of cinephiles) Watched The Fabelmans in a completely empty theatre. The movie was dropped after 3 days. Watched She Said in with literally 6 people in the theatre. 2 walk out during the movie and dropped after 3 days.

    The experience is quite different from mine.

    Haven’t seen the Fablemans though while my EEAO Screening barely consisted of 10 people, no one walks out and I could hear laughter and sobs from other audiences. Last year, right after Delta ended, I went to Soho screening twice and each consists of at least 15-20 people.

    Everything else you said seems to be valid though, Indonesian moviegoers have a weird taste for sure.

    I used to go to The Movie Theaters twice a week. Since I worked in Hollywood movies, I went less to The Movie Theaters. I suppose it’s the same thing with The General Public. Even me(a Film/Movie Proffesional) is seeing too much Content on Streamers(mostly HBO MAX

    I have to agree even though I didn’t like HOUSE OF GUCCI. Adult dramas are flopping so bad, the box office of HOUSE OF GUCCI is looking better and better and better in comparison

    “Black Panther 2” and “Elvis” did really well and I am not sure where I heard it but “thE Woman King” did great too, way overperforming. There is still hope

    No one is going to make time in their busy schedule, pay gas, popcorn, tickets for a movie like The Fabelmans.

    It’s time for Hollywood to reinvent itself and stop with these boring do-overs.

    I watched The Menu with only 8 people in the theater sadly, everyone was buying tickets for Black Panther 2

    Audience reception of EEAO and Woman King seemed great in a pretty full theater for me.  EEAO had people crying and laughing and just sitting, soaking it in after it ended. Woman King, people got up excitedly talking about it. Tar was almost empty. Everyone was silent so couldn’t tell, but it’s a very serious movie so I would hope people aren’t choking back giggles during Tar lol. Banshees had maybe 15 people. People really seemed to enjoy Banshees, everyone gasping at Gleeson’s later parts and one person whispering ‘yesss’ during Condon’s bar mic drop.

    I think people do get excited over original films, just maybe not films that seemed to be made for the explicit purpose of garnering awards clout.

    Spielberg is great, but The Fabelmans’ premise set against EEAO, Woman King or Banshees makes it come across as dull, dry, dead and done? The latter films show that films can be accessible without being Minions and they can still have artistic merit and be crafted meticulously, without being obvious awards bait.

    Darling, the weird masterchef movie doing slightly better in here. It’s still playing, pretty limited but, it’s still there.

    House of Gucci should have had extra nominations like you said. Lady Gaga (the biggest name in contention) was already the only one to hit every precursor, so it wasn’t like her nomination was going to be an abomination. There was no point nominating Cyrano and Nightmare Alley for their monotonous costumes that’s been seen over and over. Gucci was better reviewed than Don’t Look Up (I love the film). Leaving out one obscure movie and making space for Gucci would have been cool. It’s a shame they still don’t know how to run their show in 2022. They should better nominate Top Gun, Black Panther and Avatar.

    Danielle Deadwyler gave the performance of the year.

    I remain Lady Gaga's BIGGEST FAN

    EEAO is a Sci-Fi. Not an “Oscar movie”. The Woman King is an Epic. Epics are not “Oscar movie”. In the 1950s and 1960s yes, a lot of Epics won Oscars. But in the last 30 years only 2 Epics won Oscars: Braveheart(1995) and GLADIATOR(2000)

    Movie Theaters are Dying Worldwide too. I have an idea who could save Movie Theaters Worldwide: Streamers could open their Biggest Shows and their Biggest Movies in Movie Theaters at the same time. Imagine: The Biggest Shows like Stranger Things Season 5(Final Season) and House Of The Dragon Season 2 openning in Movie Theaters Worldwide

    Glass Onion did huge at only 638 movie theater. If Netflix was more Intelligent, Glass Onion will be doing 120 Million USD at 4000 Movie Theaters

    The Chosen One already did this and it was a big success. The Chosen One is a TV Series. They were openning Episodes 1 and 2 of their Season 3 at Movie Theaters and it was a huge success
