Their failure is now complete:

"The Academy’s decision to present four categories — cinematography, film editing, makeup and hairstyling and live-action shorts — during commercial breaks on this year’s Oscar show has been greeted with widespread outrage, with the condemnation stretching from Oscar watchers to past Oscar winners Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Cuarón and Emmanuel Lubezki.

“If I may: I would not presume to suggest what categories to cut during the Oscars show but — Cinematography and Editing are at the very heart of our craft,” wrote del Toro, last year’s Best Director and Best Picture winner, on Twitter. “They are not inherited from a theatrical tradition or a literary tradition: they are cinema itself.”

Cuarón, a multiple nominee this year for “Roma,” also weighed in. “In the history of CINEMA, masterpieces have existed without sound, without color, without a story, without actors and without music,” he tweeted. “No one single film has ever existed without CINEMAtography and without editing.”

And Lubezki, the only cinematographer to win three consecutive Oscars, wrote on Instagram, “Cinematography and editing are probably the ‘elementary particles,’ the primordial components of cinema. It’s an unfortunate decision.”

.... others pointed out that the four affected categories do not include any nominees from “Black Panther” or any other movie by Disney, the parent company of Oscar broadcaster ABC.

Whoa whoa whoa.  Are they saying you need a cameraman and an editor?  (scribbles down notes)

What a fucking disgrace.

What the fucking fuck? No wonder their ratings are in the toilet. "Hey! Lets remove what makes a film a film form our awards show about film!"

"WHO ARE YOU WEARING!?!?!? YEAH!!!! THATS WHAT PEOPLE WANT!!!!"
