No, probably not. But in the day that has past since the Oscars have aired, some really cool posts have been written about them. In a sort of parasitic manner, I'd like to reference them here because, I have to face it, I can't put my thoughts together as well as these writers.
I recently came across this post via Tumblr and thought it was really interesting and discussing an issue I knew nothing about. It also makes me feel really uneasy about the film Life of Pi which I haven't seen but want to desperately, and now feel very strange about. The fact that there were protests going on surrounding workers on this film who had not been paid and nothing was said about it at all in most media sources, then having the guys who one for visual effects cut off mid-speech when there were possibly going to mention the whole deal... look, I don't go out of my ways to find conspiracies. But this smells fishier than Gollum's breath after breakfast.
I'm incredibly grateful that the internet exists in moments like this; otherwise I never would have heard about this protest and thought it strange that there was only one presentation that they really cut someone off during. Interesting...
So, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, because I like to pretend that you're reading this, know that next year I will not accept such jiggery-pokery from you. I really appreciated how you incorporated students into the show (but then they were overshadowed by a terrible joke about them). So here's an idea - get somebody who actually respects film-making but is savvy enough to poke fun at Hollywood culture in a witty way. Robert Downey Jr, perhaps. Or get Tina Fey and Amy Poehler to do it, because seriously, the Golden Globes were actually enjoyable this year. Or here's an even more daring possibility - get a nobody to host the show. That's right; I said it. Hold auditions with up and coming comedians or TV personalities. And if you act on this, interpret this differently, and get someone like Snooki to host, know that I will crash the Oscars for real and take over your show and you will have a malignant tyrant fangirling in front of a billion people. You think that I'm kidding. I am not.
Anyway, Oscar spamming done. Back to business as usual - starting with fandom identification. Look for that post coming soon :)
