Are the Oscars too broken to be fixed?

87th Annual Academy Awards Set Up

“When a show goes so wrong (and has for so long), it’s not just the result of a few tactical errors. It’s not even because of alleged strong differences of opinion between the producers and host Harris (the rumor mill started even before the show had ended). Rather, it’s the culmination of problems that have been festering for years. There’s an increasing gulf between the moviegoing public’s tastes and the Academy’s. And there’s a decreasing relation between the artfulness of the Oscar films and their box-office performance,” says the Hollywood Reporter’s Stephen Galloway.

As a lover of Hollywood cinema since I was 5 years old, it hurts me that the Oscars keep sliding and not soaring. No other film event can ever be the Oscars. However, if the Academy’s leadership continues chasing the “young demographics” instead of putting on an entertaining show that focus on honoring quality “cinema” and the art of filmmaking in all its disciplines, the Oscars destiny will be continued erosion that soon will reach the point of no return.

Let’s turn this around… we still have time.
