This year the BAFTAs introduced a new category for Best Casting. What categories would you like to see come to the Oscars.
My personal choices would be Casting and Stunts
6th Place WGA 2021
12th Place VES 2021
61st Place BAFTA nominations 2021February 5, 2020 at 9:07 am #1203331075
Casting (but lol if Joker would win like BAFTA) and Stunt Coordination, and no other are really neccessary imo.February 5, 2020 at 9:25 am #1203331128

Casting, Stunts and Colour Grading, or at least adding the colour grader to the Cinematography nominations. It has become such a big part of any film released that they deserve some recognition for that. No film these days doesn’t have colour grading.February 5, 2020 at 11:27 am #1203331309
None, no more, thank you. Collapse Costume Design and Makeup & Hairstyling into the Production Design category before you add an unnecessary category like Casting. I would rather reduce the number of acting categories than see the addition of a Casting award.
Oh, and finally, once and for all, bag that horrid Original Song category.February 5, 2020 at 11:30 am #1203331319
StuntsFebruary 5, 2020 at 11:54 am #1203331347
Best Cast, Best Motion Capture Performance, and Best Choreography.
Cast is a no brainer. Make sure it takes the whole cast into consideration like SAG and not just a specific actor like BAFTA (even as a big Joker fan I don’t think it deserved to win).
Motion Capture is something that’s super overdue, and would have given Andy Serkis and Josh Brolin much deserved Oscars in 2017 and 2018. I think this award should include both the VFX artists and the actor, since both are instrumental to the success of a motion-capture performance.
Best Choreograohy is another super overdue category that could be used to reward very deserving action films like John Wick Chapter 3, Mission Impossible Fallout, and Mad Max Fury Road, but also musicals like La La Land. It would serve a dual purpose that way.

Condense the two Sound categories down to one (no one really knows the difference between the two).
