Oh. My. Godoka. The ignorance and laziness of "The Academy" is… astonishing. It gives me very little faith in the future of the film industry.
I mean, one of the judges in that cartoon brew article said
>I agree with everyone else, Frozen was a very special film.
But… only two other people even VOTED. No wonder the Disney film wins every time the category is in action. The judges are too lazy to bother seeing more than one film.
Who decided that these people are even QUALIFIED to judge films? They chose Gravity over The Hobbit for Sound Editing and Sound Mixing, which makes NO sense. Why on Earth was Lone Ranger even nominated for Visual Effects? ALL the movies that have any sort of train/moving sequence are at least half CG now, and again, The Hobbit was WAY more qualified. I can see Gravity being a second pick, but Hobbit was definitely a better choice for that category.
(I'm also still really pissed that Les Mis beat out The Hobbit ((Unexpected Journey edition)) for Makeup and Hairstyling last year. COME ON, GUYS.)
But I'm getting off topic, in a thread I started no less. I guess my worries about the foreknowledge and the deal with the trailer being too heavy for the general audience of the show were too optimistic, since the 'judges' were too busy to watch the nominees that DID make it in. What were they doing when they were supposed to be watching these films, anyway? Each other? Having money showers? Making phone calls in the middle of said money showers?
ugh. There's also the guy who talked about the animated shorts category, withPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
