    I think they should combine Score and Song into a Best Music category like the BAFTAs. Original Song is usually so weak and pointless anyway, so only deserving non-score winners will win, like ASIB last year at BAFTAs.

    And no to this best cast award. There are enough acting categories already.

    Casting can make or break a film and needs to be added ASAP. The Emmys have had it for decades now. Any sane person would agree with this.

    Stunts/Choreography is not necessarily needed. It would just become an easy way for big budget films to win/ get nommed, and are there even enough good contenders for it every year? I’m not looking at the generic Marvel stuff.

    Sound Editing and Mixing are two different things, but I understand why people are advocating to combine them. I will say that if there is only one Sound category then there should be only a single Makeup and Hairstyling category. Both cases are inherently the same.

    Apart from this, there is no need for anything else.

    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.

    Oh come on. I agree we don’t need more categories (including Casting – it’s a skill, but not an art) but what do you have against design categories? There have been some really inspired costume nominations in particular, even if they rarely win.

    The song category adds commercial interest to the show so it’s here to stay unfortunately.

    I usually enjoy the Original Song category, but I understand why people are calling for its removal right now considering this year’s nominees. Absolutely dull. The fact that “Glasgow” wasn’t even nominated almost (!) makes me want the category scrapped too, out of spite.

    Agree with adding Casting and Stunts/Choreography. Disagree with combining Sound categories and/or Costume-Makeup-Hair.

    I agree with more nominees for the big categories. That 5-10 range is probably occupied by the interesting efforts a lot of the times. This year in Best Actress we could have had Lupita, Awkwafina, Ana de Armas and maybe even Mary Kay Place.

    Nothing major against the design categories! My point was really that I would rather the Oscars do something like that before I see them add a useless Casting category. Too many awards concerned with onscreen talent as it is.

    Add Casting, Stunts, and Voice Acting. Then retain everything else.

    Original Song used to be an exciting category that was started far back in 1934, so I don’t see any reason for removing it. The Remember Me vs. This Is Me vs. Mystery of Love race was a fun year. Also, Gaga deserved her Oscar for that great song. Falling Slowly is also one of my favorite wins. It’s just this year that was anomalous.

    Ok fair enough.

    Casting.
    Stunt coordination.
    Divide makeup and hairstyling.
    Divide Visual FX and Special FX.
