IN THEIR NEVER-ENDING QUEST to SEEM "RELEVANT" (DESPITE BEING ALMOST 84 YEARS OLD) the A.M.P.A.S. HAS JUST ANNOUNCED THAT THEY PLAN to HOLD a "LIVE CONCERT" of NEXT YEAR's MUSICAL OSCAR NOMINEES (BEST SONG and BEST SCORE CONTENDERS) at UCLA's ROYCE HALL JUST DAYS BEFORE THEIR MARCH 2nd CEREMONIES. HERE's the LINK to READ COVERAGE of the IDEA in THE L.A. TIMES.

OUR TOPIC for DISCUSSION HERE: 

IS THIS a GOOD IDEA...

a BAD IDEA... 

OR JUST a DESPERATE IDEA??  

FEEL FREE to DISCUSS. 

And, AZ ALWAZE...  

ENJOY!

I don't know.
Elizabeth Hartman and Judith Barsi are more talented and beautiful than Scarlett Johansson and Chloe Grace Moretz. Fact.

Worst Supporting Actor: Brendan Fraser/Gimme Shelter and The Nut Job

Does this mean that there  will not be any song performances during the broadcast itself? If so, then yes, this is a very great idea!

I disagree. I think that the live performances help the show, just like anything they add that's not presenting an award (sketches, pre-recorded parodies, etc.).

During the last ceremony, they cut or reduced a lot of that because they prioritized other stuff, such as the over-long opening sequence -- Big mistake!

I think it's a good idea because it would cut down on the running time of the show, which is always way too long.

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I don't think the Academy is suggesting that this "concert" concept would necessarily "replace" Best Song performances within the regular Oscar broadcast, and that the fact that they're not (at this point) talking about the "concert" being broadcast suggests it will not necessarily mean the songs will be excluded from the formal ceremonies. 

Guess we'll see...

Are you sure, SchumacherH8r? I think they want it to last 150-180 minutes, so they always add things. Remember when they cut the performances in 2009 and 2011?

If this isn't going to replace the song performances in the Oscar ceremony, then it's completely pointless!

I've kind of lost any interest or respect for The Oscars. A lot of people made a big deal out of the jokes that Seth MacFarlane made at this year's show, but the thing with comics like him is that they don't mean what they're saying. I know I've said this already, but it bears repeating: They do and says things for their Shock Value. And guess what? It worked! Not just on the negative side, but on the positive side as well. A lot more people watched the Oscars this year. The ratings for the live broadcast haven't been that great for the past few years (so I read).

Another thing I'll have a hard time forgetting is their pick for Best Animated Movie: Brave was better than Wreck It Ralph? I don't think so! 

If you care to find me, Look to the Western Sky :)

I also wanted WRECK-IT RALPH to win*. Even PARA-NORMAN was better. But I think BRAVE was better than THE PIRATES!** and FRANKEN-WEENIE***.

*And that's why it won the Vits Award for Best Animated Movie.
**Nominated for the Vits Award for Most Average Movie.
***Winner of the Vits Award for Worst Animated Movie.

I actually found Frankenweenie to be better than Wreck-It-Ralph, but I thought that ParaNorman should have won. The Lorax was way, way, way worse than Frankenweenie.
