We did it. We finally did it. For almost two years, we have hemmed and hawed on this podcast about how we love movies but the Oscars sucks. For almost 90 years, the Oscars have been Hollywood’s lavish self-congratulations that in some way or another always manages to embarrass true movie lovers the world over. In 1957, it was Around the World in 80 Days… I’ve never heard of it you say?... that beat classics like The Ten Commandments and Giant for best picture. In 1969, it was when 2001: A Space Odyssey wasn’t even nominated for best picture. In 1990 Driving Miss Daisy won best picture. Driving Miss Daisy. This is also the body that snubbed Al Pacino’s Godfather performanced, but gave him an Oscar for Scent of a Woman. This is the body that never gave Alfred Hitchcock an Oscar for best director. This is the body that didn’t give Humphrey Bogart the Oscar for his Casablanca performance.

Point is, they don’t know what they’re doing or how to do it. So Sonia and I have put our money where our mouths are and reformed the Oscars and tonight we’re going to tell you how the Oscars would go if the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences was serious about honoring great movies AND making a watchable telecast.

We have written three blog entries on fixing the Oscars. Part 1 talks about what’s wrong with the current Oscars. Part 2 talks about how the nominating and awards would work if they were done right (hint, comedies and genre movies would stop getting fucked over), and Part 3 talks about what the 2018 Oscars would be like in the alternate universe where we ran the awards.
