Re: Do you think Academy Awards has hurt film?

I saw "Coda", which won Best Picture last year at the Oscars. I thought it was a decent movie. A heart warming, coming of age story, but in my opinion, there was nothing about it that really seemed...

Re: Do you think Academy Awards has hurt film?

I think what I've learned from this discussion is that how you interpret whether the Oscars are good for film, or whether their reception by the public has been impacted by their choices in recent...

Re: Do you think Academy Awards has hurt film?

I keep trying to find a point of agreement so that we can continue a discussion, but I think we may be at a fundamental impasse here. Some of us think that the Oscars are awarding a different kind of...

Re: Do you think Academy Awards has hurt film?

I agree with Holden that a large box office should not be a criteria for awards recognition, including a Best Picture nomination, and that it isn't and never has been a prerequisite for Oscar...

Re: Do you think Academy Awards has hurt film?

Holden, your film knowledge is far superior to mine, so I haven't actually seen any of these movies, with the exception of "The Godfather," so I can't really weigh in.

Re: Do you think Academy Awards has hurt film?

I think I may bow out of this conversation soon, not because I can't defend my viewpoints, but just because it seems like it's going to be a divisive conversation upon which we won't ever reach an...

Re: Do you think Academy Awards has hurt film?

Holden, I think you are right that the anonymous ballots in the pieces you reference are a small subset of Academy Awards voters, and may not always be representative of a consensus view. However, I...

Re: Do you think Academy Awards has hurt film?

Hey Holden. I don't think we're going to agree on this, as you don't seem to have an issue with the films that the Academy has consistently nominated in recent years, but happy to clarify. I did not...

You do have a very legitimate point that movies such as "Kramer v. Kramer" used to be both critically acclaimed and widely seen and appreciated in the past, and now are not. However, I think your...

Re: Do you think Academy Awards has hurt film?

I don't think the Academy Awards have hurt film. I do think their choices have hurt the prestige of the Academy Awards itself. Becoming much more overtly political than they were before, especially...
