    What was the motivation for this? I think I read next year they will go back to the end of Feb.

    How do you feel about it? I think it’s made for a dull season. Too many award shows right after another and not enough time to digest the winners. (plus the four acting categories sweeping always takes the fun out of it.)

    I think it has something to do with the opening of AMPAS museum. They’re planning to open this 2020. But I’m not sure whether it will open this year or next year. Need more update about that plus Laura Dern is one of the Trustees.

    I like it better because it cuts the campaigning down and sticks to voting for the most deserving winners.

    except voters didn’t have time to see the deserving but smaller films so everyone just voted for the same shit in every category

    2019 was less impressive to me film wise than 2018. So a longer season wouldn’t better things. The Academy leans in the direction of more traditional prestige fare.

    and sticks to voting for the most deserving winners.

    Then what went wrong?

    Pantheon of acting: Uta / Elizabeth / Richard / Sandy (Virginia Woolf), Bibi / Liv (Persona), Sandrine (La Ceremonie), Brie (Short Term 12), Jodie (Silence of the Lambs), Jodie (Killing Eve), Eva (Penny Dreadful), Timothée (CMBYN), Lupita (Us)

    What I find interesting is when the Academy shifts to an earlier date, then so does BAFTA and the Independent Spirit Awards. Does an earlier date have an impact on the nominations? It might a little, but probably not too much. My understanding is all the voters get the screeners so the release date of movies shouldn’t matter. I’m just glad that the Oscar date isn’t the same as Super Bowl Sunday – like movies, football is also one of my loves.

    I’ve read somewhere that the shortened season was suppose to make things less taxing for all the nominees. Though with that being said, I still have no idea what good is that suppose to do.
