Judd Apatow Thinks Comedy Should Have Its Own Oscar Category

judd apatow thinks comedy deserves an oscar category

Ha! Sound to us like Judd wants an Oscar!

During a Los Angeles Times forum, comedy producer/director Judd Apatow said that the thinks there should be a separate category for comedy at the Oscars:

"It doesn’t seem like it’s screwing up Schindler’s List for Hangover to have its own category. Since comedies are rarely up for Oscars, it does make sense to have a comedy category. It would just add more fun categories."

Given the fact that the Oscars made the decision to allow ten nominees for Best Picture recently, we actually don't see any reason why they couldn't do this as well!

Maybe if they hurry up, they can add this category in time for Bridesmaids to snag a Best Comedy award! You'd like that, wouldn't U Judd? LOLz!

What do U think? Should comedy have its own category at the Oscars???

    Absolutely! Comedy deserves 2 B seperate …
    We (friends/fam) have actually talked about this B4 … Comedy = Talent 2 -

    I disagree, its a slippery slope. If comedy has its own category whats top stop them from adding sci-f, chick flicks, horror…pretty soon the oscars will be 6 hours long and the worlds biggest rich celebrity circle jerk….If you cant make a comedy movie that can stand on its own as a great piece of filmmaking then thats too bad. I don't think adding another category to appease comedy folk who rarely create anything worth celebrating is fair to filmmakers who bust ass making spectacular films. There are plenty of other places for comedy writers and directors to be seen, but just because something is funny doesn't mean it deserves the highest honor in cinema. Just because something is funny, doesn't mean it is good.

    I totally agree! You can't compare a comedy to a serious film. I disagree with FemaleFilmStar. Other genres like sci-fi, horror etc. are considered serious films. If they are worthy for nomination, than they can fit in that category. I've always heard that comedy is actually more difficult than being serious so they definitely should be looked at seperately. Does she really think that comedy filmakers don't "bust their asses" to make good films? Just because something is serious doesn't make it good either honey!

    I agree. Comedies never get Oscar nods and that dosen't seem fair. Maybe they should do more like the Globes do and have separate movie categories. I know I enjoy the Globes more then the Oscars and thats one of the reasons.
