Sage words

…longtime Oscar maven Tony Angellotti, who now consults for Universal and Disney Animation, thinks the move could well dilute “both the quality and the impact of the award. I would imagine the studios are grieving over this. They’ll have to spend more money and not likely see a return — just what they don’t need in a recession.”

From this Hollywood Reporter story in the wake of yesterday’s AMPAS announcement.

    I agree – the reduction in prestige is sad and the meaning of Best Picture nominees from now on can’t quite compare with those that had to make a cut of five.

    Plus – any thought of expanding the acting categories to 10 is even more outrageous. Hell, we’d end up seeing Meryl Streep get a nomination in one of the actress categories from now until the day year she dies. Then again, 30+ nominations for her seem about right.
