    Anthony Hopkins win is a proof that narratives don´t exist inside The Academy, is like an actor said in a documentary about the Oscars a few years ago, they just vote for what they like, is like electing a President.

    Academy voting being compared to electing a President is ironic considering the lack of representation for both.

    We also learned that the Oscars really need to get over their Netflix bias.

    Narrative doesn’t exist outside of Oscar predicting circles casue it’s mostly used to wishful-think favorits as winners. If one of them actually wins, it’s usually due to factors such as AMPAS really liking the performance rather than narrative that has nothing to do with it.

    We also learend that very few viewers cared for any of the narratives cause barely anyone tuned in to see whether Oscars would tribute Boseman, award first Asian woman director, second black Actress,  etc. They didn’t care for any of that or these people (yes they didn’t care whether Boseman would win sorry to be blunt) which is why the ratings were an absolute disaster.

    EDIT:

    Accusing the industry for not casting more black actors for leading roles in major films is more effective than accusing any award for not going to a black winner.

    Casting alone isn’t enough, it needs to be a good role. I’ll give you an example from Falcon&The Winter Soldier. Anthiny Mackie is the titular Falcon, basically black Steve Rogers with even less interesting. Nobody talks about Emmy nomination for him. Poeple talk about Daniel Bruhl and Wyatt Russell for they got juicy roles on the show. OTOH, Elizabeth Olsen is considered a lock nominee for Wandavision cause her role is juicy af. Same happened with Django Uncahined. Foxx was the lead but Waltz had the award-worthy role.

    AMPAS don’t make movies. They only award/nominate what’s already made.

    Fan-made narratives don’t matter. You need a strong film & performance to win. Even if you are Viola Davis.

    Nobody knows what AMPAS thinks but what twitter and stans wishful-think is not the way to go by.

    Also, AFTRA is USELESS.

    Things I learned are

    1. Academy does not watch the shorts and documentaries at all. I feel they just read the snyopsis and see which has stronger message or see who has produced it and vote for it which is terrible if true. I guess they should bring back some kind of quiz to question the members who are voting without watching all five nominees.

    2. Narratives won’t work for actors. To win you need strong passion for your films. Or just should hope that your contendors are so weak without much passion for their movies that you end up sweeping.

    3. They need to bring back the Host. Especially the one who is not political.

    4. Orchestra is required for the ceremony. This year’s music was way too wierd while some winners were announced. Didn’t sit well. I also understand they couldn’t have orchestra this year for obvious reasons.

    5. Don’t make stars present to those categories whose films are nominated in . It works sometimes but dosent work for most of the time.

    6.For God’s sake we need clips and montages.

    3. They need to bring back the Host.

    Bring back Hugh Jackman, especially in a year that won’t be plagued like his last gig.

    I’m still surprised ABC have never tried to tap Tracee Ellis-Ross to host. She’s got excellent experience (AMAs, BETs), is famous enough on her own right and is already employed by them.

    Emmys FYC | Alan Tudyk in “Resident Alien” | Billie Piper in “I Hate Suzie” | Ego Nwodim in “Saturday Night Live” | Kaley Cuoco in “Harley Quinn” | “Dickinson” | “P-Valley” | “Pose” | “Superstore”
