but what really bugs me is awarding some of the oscars off screen. the reason we watch the stupid show is to see the awards be given out. What is putting awards off air giving more time for? asinine skits with the host? mediocre renditions of the best song nominees? everyone hates that shit. If the awards aren't interesting enough to give out on air then eliminate the categories instead. if they're going to add a new category this time why not revise all the categories.
I go to an oscar party every year where we place bets, predict the winners, and riff on the speeches and stuff. It's always a lot of fun. Gonna be pretty lame if we cant watch all the awards.
