The White Lotus can happen in cinematography although with it being a juried category and Succession already having missed here last season, I do question how well the Dogme-esque style of filmmaking fares under a panelled system for a category like that.
Cinematography is not juried – it’s not even an area. You may be confusing it with choreography.April 14, 2022 at 2:21 pm #1204917103
Update on the tour: instead of two hosts, there will be just one – Natasha Bedingfield (Pepper from last season)March 28, 2022 at 1:13 pm #1204886378
One thing I think we learned:
Never listen to anybody who claims they can get the ceremony down to under three hours. There are only two ways they can do this – get rid of the comedy bits, which the producers won’t do, or get rid of some of the categories, which the Motion Picture Academy won’t let them do.
It would not kill anybody to start the ceremony broadcast at 7:30 Eastern with some of the “less popular” categories. In the past, this may have been a problem…but in the past, the ceremony was on Mondays; they no longer have to worry about people in the west getting home from work in time.March 27, 2022 at 7:33 pm #1204882493
I’m not convinced that was real.
I doubt that it was scripted, but I have a feeling that if Smith meant to hit him seriously, Rock would have ended up lying flat on the stage.
Speaking of which, Rock didn’t do himself any favors; he’s not high enough on the “Hollywood Royalty” list to get away with saying, “And the Winner Is.”March 27, 2022 at 7:17 pm #1204882251
“The final exciting hour” begins at 10:15 Eastern? So much for getting it done in three hours.March 27, 2022 at 9:44 am #1204879036
Which are the 8 categories that will be given out not on the actual broadcast? Will it be like the Tonys with them being given out during the commercials or will it before the rest of the telecast? My guess is they will do like they do on the Tony’s and show a brief clip of the winners?
The eight categories are, the three short films (live action, animated, documentary), sound, film editing, makeup/hairstyling, production design, and original score.
Also, the plan is to show the reading of the nominees, announce the winner, and then show the complete acceptance speech. How much time the producers think that will save, I don’t know.
If they are cutting out 8 of the categories, are we only going to get a 2 and a half hour show?
The theory is, it will get the show to under three hours, but I will believe that when I see it, especially since they are supposed to be adding the “fan favorite award” to the show. How soon before there’s a “Should the Fan Favorite count as ‘winning an Oscar’ in the future?” poll on GoldDerby?
I think it is a real shame and sad to see some members here claiming they will not be watching the Oscars this year for various reasons.
Hey, is it my fault that, for the first time in the 33-year history of the show, there is a new episode of The Simpsons airing on Oscar night? Okay, to be fair, the first few years, the Oscars were still on Mondays. Meanwhile, Fox is airing repeats of its shows against the Grammys next week…March 25, 2022 at 7:58 pm #1204876497
Unless Euphoria grows in below the line support or something like Yellowjackets completely explodes as a contender (both of which are of course very possible), I don’t see why it can’t repeat. Personally even as someone who really likes the show I hope it loses this year because aside from a few scenes here and there at the end of some of the episodes the music supervision wasn’t really memorable enough this time round for it to come close to the work on a show like Yellowjackets and I feel like showrunners and directors being credited on a music supervision submission is a cheap attempt at an easy Emmy win and should be against the rules.
Presumably, it is now – quoting the 2022 rules for Music Supervision:
“A Music Supervisor’s on-screen credit must reflect their primary function as a music supervisor.”February 24, 2022 at 12:44 pm #1204816078
This extreme one im skipping mostly becuase those acts give me anxiety lol
It isn’t live, so you shouldn’t have to worry. If anybody seriously got injured, (a) I assume it would have made the news by now, and (b) NBC would cut the act out of the show entirely.February 23, 2022 at 5:43 pm #1204815334
Simon gives his AGT: Extreme golden buzzer to Aaron “Wheelz” Fotheringham of Nitro Circus, which puts him directly into the $500,000 final.
Shown in the closing credits: “Travis Pastrana (one of the three judges) has a financial interest in Nitro Circus.”
No, that’s not suspicious at all.Not now
