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.
I hate almost all awards shows.1 The one exception has always been the Academy Awards.
I’ve watched the Oscars every year for as long as I can remember. To those who know me as a movie buff, this shouldn’t be surprising. Still, I can’t stand the Golden Globes or that various other pageants you can find on random television stations during awards season. But the Academy Awards always seemed special to me. Beyond reproach.
But I fear I’m starting to lose that loving feeling.
