“They are not purely based on the quality of the films. When it comes to nominations, there are too many of them, too many cooks in the kitchen. I think it is very political.

Maybe I shouldn’t say that. But I think it’s true and a lot of people think the same way.”

Mia Goth, Jake’s Take

Mia Goth He’s not wrong, in his 95 years of existence, oscar they just enrolled Six horror movies: The Exorcist, Jaws, The Silence of the Lambs, The Sixth Sense, The Black Swan, and Get Out.

And only two of them have managed to win the award: innocent silence, who managed to win best movie, why Jordan Peele Won Best Original Screenplay, but since 2017 No film of this genre has been nominated again at the Oscars.

To put this in perspective, that year 43.7 million people turned on televisions to watch the ceremony, And that number is shrinking year by year, to the point that in 2022, everything else Will Smith slaps controversy In college 15 million people attended the ceremony.

And the Academy has attempted to change its structure to invite more audiences. Last year Decided not to broadcast all categories to speed up the function, but ended only by creating disputes and grievancesto that extent They will be telecast again in 2023.

They also decided to implement a category that would be Voted by the public: “Best Popular Film”, which did not help their case much, as again it was felt that they “segregating and discriminating” movies randomly.

oscar have also tried increasing diversity and inclusion, Inviting more artists to be part of the jury academy, but this year No woman in Best Director category, didn’t even show no black artist managed to get nominated by his own efforts They sit empty and shallow.

many times, oscar has been criticized and said to be a kind of “echo chamber” Where industry people pat each other on the back. And judging by the rating level it seems mia goth is so right And much deeper changes are needed.
