Why the Oscars were too low for you?
Here’s a story that might have a lot of people scratching their heads.
The BBC’s “The Nightly Show” had a guest segment in which it interviewed comedian Steve Coogan, and the first question he was asked was, “Why the Oscars?”
He was then asked the same question, but with the words “It’s all a little bit weird, isn’t it?”
He said, “No, it’s totally fine.”
That’s when the rest of us got to the point where we thought, well, why is that even a question?
It was a question we were asked, and it was not only because it was a comedy question.
We were asked that question, and we just thought, why do we have to ask it?
We have to make sure people know that, because this is a show that, as far as the Oscars go, is a bit of a niche show.
So we have some serious questions.
And it’s not just us.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has an executive committee of members that have to sign off on the selections.
So the questions have to be vetted, and they have to come from the people who are most qualified.
I’m not a lawyer or a constitutional expert, so I can’t tell you how much that might be a burden.
But, as we’ve seen in the past, there is a real reluctance to accept a lot more diversity.
I don’t think that we can look at the Oscars and say, “Well, it wasn’t a good year for us.”
But we’re not the only ones who feel that way.
So, yes, we need to do more to support diversity and inclusion.
And yes, it would be good if it was the case that we had some diversity, but that was not the case this year.
I know some of the Oscars are being made available on DVD and on streaming services, but I want to make one point about this: There is a lot we could have done to make the Oscars better.
I mean, they’re a very big show.
They’re a major broadcast network, and there’s a lot to it.
And I think that people who know about them and want to watch them, you know, you might be like, “Oh, it must be hard to get through it.”
And it’s true that, for some, it can be.
But we could be doing more to make our Oscars better, and that is, we could make them more diverse.
For example, it is incredibly difficult to cast a lead actress in a film, even if she has the most interesting and compelling character.
I remember when I was working on the “Star Wars” movies, I had a casting director who was really good, but he said, in the end, he couldn’t cast her because he thought she was too dark.
I think, in some ways, the reason why some of these movies didn’t have any lead women is because they were so dark, because they didn’t really give women roles that were interesting or compelling.
And, you look at “Dirty Dancing” and “Gangster Squad,” both of which are not about women.
And it was just not a strong movie.
And so, we should look at how we can make it more interesting, and I think we should do that with more diverse leads.
We should be giving people roles that are interesting and meaningful.
So let’s make them not just the lead.
Let’s give them more roles that aren’t about the woman but about the character.
That’s what we’re trying to do with “The Jungle Book,” and I can guarantee that it’s going to be a hit.
I think it’s a great movie, and so is “Lady Bird.”
But I think there’s going a big opportunity for women and people of color in this industry to be part of that.
The Oscars are supposed to be about the actors, not the actresses.
So I think the problem is not just that some of our films are not great, but there’s so much going on behind the scenes that, in our minds, they shouldn’t be on the screen at all.
And in the case of “Lady Birds,” I think I’ll be able to see the movie before I see the actress.
I’ll know her name.
I won’t know her story.
I don’t care what her background is, I don, and neither do you, I just want to see it.
It’s not the same.
So the problem here is not that the films are bad, or the actors are bad.
The problem is that the film is not good.
And that’s why we have the Oscars.
So it’s about the performances, and, as an actor, I have to have a sense of why it’s so great, and then I can make an effort to get to know the person behind it.
I have to understand how it’s being made,
