Oscars Producers Introduce A 'Thank-You Scroll' In Hopes Of Livening Up Winners' Speeches — But Will It Work?

| Filed under: TV NewsAwardzTech TalkOscars

no title

The Oscars are just around the corner, which means all the nominees are writing down their speeches — which usually include long lists of producers, directors, and agents who helped make the role come to fruition.

But this year, the winners are going to have to speak from the heart, because they'll already be covered in the "thank you" department!

In an attempt to mix up the prestigious ceremony, award show producers Reginald Hudlin and David Hill asked each nominee to fill out a "scroll card" that includes their list of names to thank!

According to the producers, the names written on the card will scroll along the bottom of the screen, so the winner can use the allotted 45 seconds to say something more meaningful to all those watching the event!

While some might think of this new tactic as a snub to the people who got the movie made, the producers argue that the scroll is actually better than a shout-out — because it can be screen grabbed, saying:

Now she's trying to break our data plans, too!

Kim Kardashian West may be the most famous person in the world, but as hard as you may try to fight it, she's actually a businesswoman first.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has parlayed her rather controversial beginnings into a multi-million dollar empire thanks to her shows, clothing lines, books, and, most interestingly, her mobile apps.

Kim Kardashian Hollywood is a success in its own right, but Kimmy's real pride and joy — apart from North West and Saint West, of course — is without a doubt her KIMOJI app.

Taylor Swift Is Getting Her Own App — But How Will It Be Different From Kim Kardashian & Katy Perry's?!

no title

We don't necessarily need another game based on an A-Lister's life… but we sure are gonna play it!

First there was Kim Kardashian Hollywood. Then there was Katy Perry Pop. Then there was Demi Lovato: Path to Fame. And now there's… whatever Taylor Swift is gonna call her mobile app!

Superstars making their fans pretend like they're living similarly exciting lives is all the rage right now, and while KP and T-Swift may not be the best of friends, Tay Tay's not about to pass up a good investment.

It was announced on Wednesday that the 26-year-old Out of the Woods singer has partnered with Glu Mobile to make the next mobile app that we'll play non-stop for a month before tiring of.

But unlike Demi and Katy's carbon copies of Kim's app… Glu's chairman Niccolo de Masi thinks Taylor is big enough to actually create a brand new type of game, saying:

The bigger they are, the harder they fall…

Rihanna was set to have one of the biggest debuts of 2015, but after months of rescheduling the release of ANTI, she may have contributed to her own demise.

Even though the 27-year-old pushed over 1 million copies of her eighth studio album in just 15 hours on TIDAL, she only actually sold 1,000 copies, debuting at No. 27 on the Billboard 200!

Well, now that ANTI officially did not live up to the anticipation, it looks like the executives attached to the flop are trying to distance themselves from RiRi's latest work.

In fact, shortly after the album's initial leak, TIDAL's director of marketing Grace Kim released a statement ensuring fans everything was okay, saying:
