The ratings just came out for these door stop awards and the Academy Awards maybe more pointless than the Grammy's? It took the ceremony about 30 seconds before it became political, Hollywood is over, the pandemic has seen to that, the egos have landed on rough ground and wayward acceptance speeches don't have that same egotistical impact? The ceremony is aiming to entertain a room full of egomaniacs that are slowly getting bruised like a punch drunk fighter. Blockbuster movies are in serious trouble, unknown ones are even worse off, who had heard of these films seriously?

Yep, no one wants to watch a bunch of woke, entitled hypocrits accept their (screened in case the winner offends anybody) awards for (screened in case their nomination offends anybody) movies most of us have never heard of, then make some bullshit speech about climate change or whatever before flying home in their private jets.

It’s been unwatchable for a while (except when Gervais) and has become completely irrelevant to almost everyone now. Hollywood’s slow death has gathered pace since covid and this farce sure didn’t help.

Whilst I also find Hollywood's back-slapping irritating, the actual awards aren't the problem.

The comments along the lines of "for films nobody's heard of" are pretty wide of the mark, too - I would've thought any semi serious film watcher would've seen or heard of all best film nominees.
