2019 Academy Awards ceremony undergoes change in format

On Feb. 24, the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles held the 91st Academy Awards ceremony.  This was the night of the year we all looked forward to most, where Hollywood’s best actors and actresses united to compete for the golden statue.  But, in recent years, fewer and fewer people have been tuning in on this award ceremony resulting with many suggestions being posted on how to fix this.

 

Because of recently declining numbers of viewers, this year, there have been a few added changes to the ceremony to be considered time-saving, so people would stay tuned in.  One recommendation was to shorten the timespan to three hours. However this suggestion didn’t pull through because of pressure from the film industry. Another suggestion was to announce four winners of the categories during the commercial breaks.  But, with guests at the ceremony getting up and talking to people when they know they aren’t on live air, it would have seemed disrespectful to the ones receiving their awards, so this idea was denied. Although, one significant change that was confirmed that was a major timesaver was the absence of the host.  Kevin Hart did have this position but then later stepped down from this role after some comments made on Twitter. So, instead there were multiple celebrities announcing the different categories of winners, including Awkwafina, Daniel Craig, Whoopi Goldberg, Tina Fey, and Jennifer Lopez. Nominees were also informed that their speeches had to be a maximum of 90 seconds for time’s sake.

 

If you didn’t this year, be sure to tune in on next showing of the Oscars to see the interesting changes they have made to the program, and you’re favorite actors and actresses being nominated.
