  1. Just make sure you read a transcript of the dialogue from the official video as you record to make it as authentic as possible !
  2. Is there a radio broadcast of this or were hoping for a mobile phone recording that doesn't sound too abyssimal?
  3. Alright, I'll try to be more careful from now on.
  4. it's not my fault https://www.oscars.org/news/academy-establishes-representation-and-inclusion-standards-oscarsr-eligibility
  5. Maybe they have diversity quotas for the memoriam and adding those people would have messed up the numbers!
  6. Eh, we've always made fun of political correctness on this board and everyone thought it was funny until a few years ago. I guess a lot of older members left and were replaced by younger people that take those issues more seriously. A lot of my Oscar telecast comments Koray compiled were meant to be sarcastic and not intended to drag anyone into dreary debates.
  7. I guess it matters much less this year, because it's not an obvious case like Coda last year.
  8. Well before it was simple. Our childhood geek movies (like Raiders of the Lost Ark, Jaws, E.T., Raiders...) didn't win Best Picture because the Academy preferred serious dramas or "insightful comedies". On hindsight they should have won because those movies defined their eras. Now they seem to give more awards to movies that coincide with social causes they support, which seems to vary from year to year. And right now it the in thing seems to be diversity and inclusion. So I think it's fair to say Everything Everywhere having an asian cast might have been a factor why it won.
  9. I plan to see the movie. But based on the last few years Oscars I think it's alright to be a bit sceptical.
  10. I haven't seen the movie yet so i can't tell you if it's good or not, but the asian cast doesn't bother me at all. My concern was that it won the awards because of it instead of it's actual merit, or at the very least it was a deciding factor for the academy voters.
  11. I played that game and I never said anything bad about it...apart from a pure gameplay perspective being too linear. I think your misunderstanding as to what issues actually bother me.
  12. Never mind, it's pointless to try to explain.
  13. I have too many numerous examples of it and a new one comes up pretty much every day. But if I start naming them I'll be asked to stop by the mods. I feel I belong in the "geeks and gamers culture", and that "woke culture" is the antithesis of that.
  14. I like Kimmel better than Fallon and I thought he did a good job last night. The ceremony was classier than the last few years with no hosts
  15. Well it's ruining my video games and movies, so someone's got to speak out against it. And I'm sure a fair portion of the people here agree with me.
  16. There was at least one occasion every year for the past 25 years where it was never a better time to do Star Wars and Indy expansions.
  17. yeah whatever, but as soon as you say "second woman of color" it means woke and I'm also comfortable using the term as I currently understand it.
  18. Even freaking CNN talked about this recently and agrees the term means something different now. Bill Maher also uses the term in a derogatory way pretty much all the time and as far as I know he's not a Fox News commentator.
  19. Yes, that's the original definition of the term that some people will shove in your face as an attempt to expose your bigotry or racism if your use the term in a more derogatory way, but it's evolved and that's not what it means to most people now.
  20. It it was an all white cast the movie might have had the same impact and message (if I read correctly that's what you guys mean) , but the usual "politically correct" choice like Tar or Women Talking would have won by default instead. They've conditioned me to think this way over the past few years. Like in the late 70's and 80's the "quirky Woody Allen comedies" and serious dramas would automatically win over now iconic films like Jaws, Star Wars, Raiders... So actually, the choices for best picture have almost never coincided with what I consider a great movie all of my life.
  21. In the end I think it's what happened. A somewhat good movie the general public liked that happened to have an "underrepresented" cast . Perfect for them to make it less obvious than voting for Tar, the woman lesbian conductor movie. Even more perfect for them is they could split their vote with All Quiet in separate categories, even for it's lack of representation (all white hetero male cast), to show their anti-war activism. 2 birds with 1 stone.
  22. I don't want to see it either for some reason .Looks really depressing
