Regarding the Oscars (I have family that have worked on that and shows of the like for many years) - the thing to remember about all of these shows is ratings. Just like American Idol, Real Housewives, and Fox News: the objective is to drive views and advertising. Handing out statues is just a secondary goal. The primary goal is viewing marketshare. Do you think the show succeeded in doing that?

It’s a fair and good point. And yes, it was insanely successful in that regard. I’m simply talking about my personal preference, of course. I worry about the Oscars becoming yet another award show I just refuse to watch.
