Glad I didn't bother to watch, especially after learning they snubbed Jessica Walter - they can nominate Clint Eastwood for zipping his pants, but not a mention of Jessica??

 

Anthony Hopkins is one of the best actors around, and Academy voters do NOT like feeling pressured or having expectations put onto them, especially in a year of racial justice - I had seen some speculation he would pull an upset. I'm just sorry they screwed around Chadwick's loved ones that way. 

 

The Glenn Close bit was a delight.

Yeah, I had a feeling it was the Academy thumbing its noses at the last several years. I wish it had gone the other way though. Initially I misread a tweet saying Steven Yeun had won as well, and was so happy for about ten seconds. But he has a strong career going forward anyway.

The list of omissions this year is shocking (and this isn't even close to the full list of some of the biggest names).

Huge ratings collapse, per Variety:

 

Quote

Per Nielsen Live+Same Day preliminary national numbers, an average of 9.85 million viewers tuned in on Sunday evening to watch a more intimate and stripped-down version of the Oscars in the midst of a pandemic. That’s a 58.3%, 13.75 million viewer drop-off from last year. The Academy’s third host-less show in a row scored a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 in the fast national ratings...

I read the ending flopped cause they ended with Best Actor instead of Best Picture

 

Oh and some idiots are crying racism that CB didn't win *smdh*

Final numbers for the Oscars were 2.1 in the demo and 10.4 million total viewers. Surprisingly the higher quarter-hour was 2.3 and the lowest was a 2.0, so the viewership was relatively stable in spite of the poorly received ceremony. Just not that many people were watching in the first place!

Much, much too fast and the song didn't help at all. The pictures went by so fast I almost got dizzy.

And, no disrespect to anyone else, but they should have ended it with Dame Olivia de Havilland. Even though there were many great stars who passed away last year, she was one of the greatest icons in cinema history.

Variety coming through their very early 2022 contenders… predicting Will Smith, Denzel, and Michael B. Jordan all in Best Actor, which would be something. Still, it’s EARLY. A lot of these films could be disastrous…
