Will The Academy Awards Air In January Next Year??

Holy shiz! This is a massive switch-up!

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences is reportedly going to consider moving up the air date of 2011 Academy Awards to January!

According to a source:

"The awards season is too long currently. This will shorten and reduce the amount of campaigning. Also, it will make the Oscars the definitive awards show again. The Globes can't move a lot earlier as all the movies wouldn't be released yet. The only potential downside is how do people see all the films in time to vote for nominations?"

Yeah - EXACTLY! You want to throw the Oscars in with not only the Golden Globes, but the SAG and BAFTAS? And what about the effing SuperBowl?!

Another source, however, seems doubtful the date will be switched, because there's simply not enough time for members of the Academy to watch all potential films and vote accordingly.

They claim:

"There's a ZERO percent chance that the Executive team can figure out how to logistically coordinate voting that soon, especially with all the old people who don't do electronic mail. And especially because [executive director] Bruce Davis won't do anything that utilizes technology."

Seems like a pretty shiteous idea to us!

What do U think?? Should the Academy Awards continue airing in February or March or should Awards season be squeezed into one month?

    really do not care about the opinons of a bankrupt loser. Will look to another source for real news - nice try.

    LOL. Seriously, the members of the Academy don't see all the movies anyway. They just vote for what's popular or not gay.

    Brokeback Mountain proved this when many of the voters said they refused to watch the movie or vote for it.

    Haha, start to finish, this is a non story. The Hollywood PR machine never fails to amuse me. Yawn, who cares?!

    ""Looking like the illegitimate love child of Axl Rose, Madonna and Marilyn Manson, attention whore Lady Gaga bit it big time while unsuccessfully maneuvering through Heathrow airport in a pair of sensible leather chaps and comfy transatlantic travel platform boots on Wednesday.""

    if the academy awards are earlier it will make them less predictable. after watching the golden globes, sag, and the bafta awards everyone knows who is going to win the oscars anyways. MOVE EM UP!

    Do it all in one mth. Do it all the same week! Who gives a frogs fat ass?! The whole thing is political anyway. Time for people to care about being the star in their own lives and stop giving these self absorbed celebs mths of attention for what exactly??

    Doesn't matter, at all, what month it occurs.
    Even though the Academy Awards are basically boring, I still watch every year

    I WISH THEY'D CHANGE THEIR POLICIES ON MOVIES SO ONE DAY GAGA WOULD RECEIVE AN OSCAR FOR THE PORN MOVIES SHE'LL STAR IN WITH HORSES AND HER SPECIAL ONE WHERE SHE SUCKS .

    Why is everyone so bitter?? There is truly no need to be so obnoxious.



  12. 12

    They need to leave it how it is because it's hard already to find the perfect dress and jewlry for all those award shows and at the same time give interviews and so on. I don't need all that stress!!!!!!!!! STOP FUCKING THINGS UP HOLLYWOOD!!!!!!!!!

    I propose a gladiator-style Oscars ceremony where all the film people are put into an amphitheater with wild animals. Whomever survives gets the Academy Award that year. It'd be a hell of a lot more entertaining than the usual broadcast and, wow, think of fashion! "Who designed your mace?" "Who's your shield by?" It'd give red carpet a whole new meaning.

    I'm watching no matter what month it comes in. Just hope the right people get the awards.
