Most of the A-list filmmakers of Hollywood are criticizing the Academy Awards Oscars to plan of presenting the four awards categories in the forthcoming Annual 91st Academy Awards during the commercial break. This is quite an insult for the actors, directors as well as the filmmakers who have devoted their entire careers as well as their lives in the filmmaking. The distinguished filmmakers are calling up the committee of Academy Awards for reversing the decision.
Martin Scorsese who created Goodfellas, Spike Lee who brought a masterpiece with Oldboy and Quentin Tarantino who is famous for the movies like Kill Bill and The Hateful Eight have along with the distinguished cinematographers such as Robert Richardson, Emmanuel “Chivo” Lubezki and Roger Deakins and William Goldenberg, Tom Cross and lastly Mary Jo Markey have come up with remarks and put it in a signed open letter.
The 91st Annual Academy Award is going to Air on 24th of February on ABC. Oscars is only ten days away by the looks of it. The producers of 91st Oscars Glenn Weiss and Donna Gigliotti are currently facing an open revolt from Hollywood. The board Academy Awards haven’t yet responded to the request for comment.
The letter states, “Relegating these essential cinematic crafts to a lesser status in this 91st Academy Awards ceremony is nothing less than an insult to those of us who have devoted our lives and passions to our chosen profession.” John Bailey, who belongs to the branch of cinematographers of the Academy Awards and also the president of the Academy has revealed the plans meant for the 91st Academy Awards which is comprised of four categories of Oscar such as film-editing, cinematography, makeup, makeup, and live-action in the midst of the commercial breaks. Baily of the other hand emphasizes on the fact that Academy will honor the achievement of 24 awards on 24th February on Oscar.
