Ben Stiller Says Comedies Deserve More Oscar Love!

ben stiller talks comedy at the oscars

Judd Apatow will be happy to hear this!

During a recent interview, Ben Stiller opened up the idea of adding a comedy category at the Oscars.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"In terms of the Oscars, it's just too bad that comedies don't get recognized. It just seems like there's this huge hole there where there's no recognition for people who over the years — and this is for years and years, you know — have been doing such great work."

"So I don't know if the solution is a new category or not. It's great for comedies that the Globes exist in that way — that there's more of an opening to see them get recognized. Though I don't know if everybody feels like the musical and comedy category always should go together, I think it's better than not having any recognition whatsoever for these people who really deserve it. It's worth looking at, because there's so many people doing so much good work."

We definitely agree that the Academy should give this some thought. Plus, it'd be an incentive for filmmakers to create better comedies! We'd LOVE to see someone write the next Annie Hall!!!!

What do U think? Do U agree with Ben Stiller's comedy comments???

    Agreed. How often does a picture win an Oscar and you have NEVER heard of it? Why? Because most of the time we would rather see a comedy! There have been some really FANTASTIC comedies made that were just GREAT films.



  2. 2

    He is a freaking idiot! He is just pissed because he will never be considered for one? Have you seen the comedies lately? They all suck.

    Pls dont inflate his ego more than it already is

    A "Ben Stiller" comedy is the last movie that should win an Oscar. I vowed never to see another of his movies after"Meet the Fokkers". How do his movies even get made? Do not waste your hard-earned money on his shiteous movies.
