The organizers of the 91st ceremony of awarding the prize “Oscar” decided not to show live the awarding of the winners in four categories: “best editing”, “best operator”, “best short film” and “best makeup and hairstyles”. The winners will be announced during commercial breaks, according to IndieWire.
Who will watch the ceremony online, see what is happening in the Los Angeles theater the Dolby Theatre in full. Others will show videos with award after the ceremony, and there will be a cut scene with the release of the winners on stage.
The decision is connected with desire of the Oscar Committee to reduce the duration of the ceremony, which is now about five hours – and thus increase steadily falling ratings. After the new duration of “Oscar” will be about three hours. In addition, recall that this year’s ceremony for the first time in 30 years will pass without leading.
The Oscar decision will not please everyone: the fact that none of the “cut” category is not provided by projects of Disney that owns the ABC broadcasting the award.
“It’s not for me to judge, what categories to cut from the ceremony, but the camera work and the editing is the heart of our art. They are not borrowed from theatre or literature, this is the movie,” – commented the decision of the organizers of the famous Director Guillermo del Toro.
