The Academy Awards really wrap up the awards season. It’s not as important to viewers. I’m not even sure it’s all that important to Hollywood anymore. But after 95 years, it’s kind of hard to get away from.
And, if you didn’t know, being recognized with an award is pretty fun. So, a good excuse to party and pat yourself on the back. Maybe not as vital for the recognition of amazing work in cinema.
Still, with Everything, Everywhere All At Once winning Best Picture, and the studio A24 having Yeoh and Fraser in the Best Actress and Actor category, most of the Hollywood folk feel pretty good about the awards show. Popular selections and critical acclaim.
But where can it go from here? The nature of entertainment is changing, with the ultra-short form’s popularity on the rise (which is interesting, considering how badly Quibi did). So will the award shows change with it?
Only time will tell.
