This past week was the announcement of the nominated choices of this year’s Academy Awards,a.k.a.: the Oscars,which left fans of dramas satisfied but horror fans truly depressed,for let me explain a few things regarding this situation…
Let me explain something here: the Oscars actually do pick horror films based on how they’re made,how tremendous their production values are, and how their stars perform in them,since Oscars have went to the likes of Best Actor for Frederick March in 1931’s DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE,Best Actress for Kathy Bates in MISERY,the Best Director Oscars for the likes of James Cameron,Peter Jackson,and Guillermo Del Toro,Best Make-Up Oscars for the likes of AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON,THE WOLFMAN(2010),ALIENS,THE FLY,and TOTAL RECALL,and Best Picture Oscars for the likes of SILENCE OF THE LAMBS,LORD OF THE RING:RETURN OF THE KING,and THE SHAPE OF WATER. Yes,I also threw in some science fiction and fantasy film titles but you get the point.
And a week before this year’s Oscars were announced,this popped up…
Talk about jumping the gun,for the writer of that very piece(known as Master Lundegaard) and several of the ppls on there displayed such sheer ignorance in not only overlooking several of the genre films that actually got top Oscars(in what could have been a well structured Letterboxd list article on why certain genre films receive Oscars and why certain genre films don’t) but Lundegaard placed HEREDITARY as his Letterboxd List article’s sole avatar pic(for a List article that is about horror/genre films that got snubbed on the Best Picture awards) as he displayed major ignorance in centering upon being upset that HEREDITARY didn’t receive an Oscar nominations(a week before the Oscar announcements) as it made him sound like an upset HEREDITARY fanboy heavily hurt that his favorite film of 2018 didn’t receive any Oscar nods,which followed by a handful of social media posts(on both Twitter and Facebook) that criticized the lack of any genre titles up for this year’s Oscar nominations,for like I previous said: the Oscars only nominate and award genre films upon its technical aspects,how well they’re acted,and how well they are made and it just doesn’t pay off for these modern fans and fanboys to act(or write) as though they’re delinquent nine year olds with ADD(which is what these modern journalists and modern fans have sadly been acting like since the early 00s/2000s).
To close it out here,everyone should just be fully appreciative of the earlier genre films that won Oscars and just patiently wait till the next Oscars event where I’m sure they’ll once again nominate horror/genre titles for the top title awards.
