The Academy Is Looking Into Whether Andrea Riseborough’s Oscar Campaign Broke Any Rules

January 28, 2023 / Posted by:

It’s officially Oscar time. Only 45 days until the day after the Academy Awards when we’re treated to a million think pieces angrily wondering why the youth won’t willingly watch a 15-hour broadcast. It’s probably because of all that TikTok-ing! In the meantime, we’ll have to get our Oscar fill by reading up on think pieces about the current crop of nominees and who is more deserving of having the coveted gold paperweight. While Ke Huy Quan and Michelle Yeoh should sweep EVERYTHING (yes, even Best Animated Short Film, I don’t care), some nominees are getting the side-eye (cough Andrea Riseborough cough). The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has begun an investigation into Andrea’s unusual grassroots campaign to get that OSCUH. Academy members are probably thrilled that this year’s scandal doesn’t involve a slap!

The nominations for the 95th Academy Awards came out today. So from now until voting closes on March 7th, there’s going to be some 5.0 Richter scale rolling come from Marilyn Monroe’s grave since Ana de Armas got a Best Actress nom for her performance in the Razzie-nominated trauma porn Blonde, and you know her campaign is going to put everyone’s eye-rolling muscles to the test.

ABC Is Open To Having Chris Rock Host The Oscars Next Year

May 18, 2022 / Posted by:

First time Oscar-winner Will Smith is currently be prohibited from stepping anywhere near the Academy Awards until 2033, and that’s because the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences decided that a public slap across the face was one step too far when it comes to their standards of audience behavior. But the Oscars’ relationship with Will’s slap-receiver, Chris Rock, is moving in an entirely different direction. For the past couple of years, the Academy has struggled to nail down a host for the show, and even this year it felt like a scramble to put someone in front of the mic (eventually they settled on Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes, and Regina Hall). But if ABC’s President of Entertainment is telling the truth, then it sounds like ABC is pretty close to skipping all the host-finding panic of years past, and just giving the whole thing to Chris Rock next year.
