New Oscar Rules in Effect This Year

#1 Post by silverscreenselect » Fri Mar 08, 2024 9:48 am

I didn't realize this until I just read it, but I'm posting it here because of the response it's likely to get. The rules were adopted in 2020 but only became effective this year.

To qualify for Best Picture Oscar consideration, films must now meet certain criteria. There are four categories, and films must meet the standards in at least two to qualify: onscreen representation, themes, and narrative; creative leadership and project team; industry access and opportunities; and audience development. For onscreen representation, these are the requirements:

1) At least one star or significant supporting actor must be from an underrepresented racial or ethnic group (a list of such groups was included);

2) Alternatively, at least 30% of the secondary characters must be from at least two underrepresented groups (including LGTBQ, women, and actors with cognitive or physical disabilities) or if the film's central narrative involves one of those groups

For creative leadership, these are the requirements:

1) At least two department heads (cinematography, editing, etc.) must be from an underrepresented group with at least one from an underrepresented racial or ethnic group

2) Alternatively, at least six other crew members (excluding production assistants aka interns) must be from an underrepresented racial or ethnic group

3) Alternatively, at least 30% of the crew must be from an underrepresented group

The article I read didn't list requirements in the other two categories. It seems these categories have enough wiggle room that any film that wants Oscar consideration should be able to meet the requirements if it does some advance planning.

That is good. I expect we'll see more people with conservative values in movies, since we are the most underrepresented group in Hollywood.

I was really hoping when the Oppenheimer guy won for Best Actor that as part of the announcement they would say "By Order of the Peaky Blinders."

Murphy is the main character in the show which we started as our late winter viewing.

YouTube embeds don't seem to be working, but here's a link to one of the funniest moments on the show (and I'm posting it here in the political lounge for obvious reasons):

Thank you for posting it here rather than the main forum. I no longer log in to X, but I'm assuming this was the review that Kimmel read on air, and his adlibbed response to it. I thought he made it up as a gag, but it was actually a direct quote. Couldn't believe it.

Donald Trump wrote:Has there EVER been a WORSE HOST than Jimmy Kimmel at The Oscars. His opening was that of a less than average person trying too hard to be something which he is not, and never can be. Get rid of Kimmel and perhaps replace him with another washed up, but cheap, ABC “talent,” George Slopanopoulos. He would make everybody on stage look bigger, stronger, and more glamorous. Also a really bad politically correct show tonight, and for years - Disjointed, boring, and very unfair. Why don’t they just give the Oscars to those that deserve them. Maybe that way their audience and TV ratings will come back from the depths. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
Jimmy Kimmel wrote:See if you can guess which former President just posted that on Truth Social. ... Anyone? No? Well, thank you President Trump. I'm surprised you're still watching. Isn't it past your jailtime?

Ditto. I could not believe it.
