The 89th Annual Academy Awards ceremony celebrates the film industry's best and biggest in cinema for the year 2016 with host Jimmy Kimmel, including awards for best actors, directors, songs, original screenplays and motion picture.
The top movies of 2018 are honored at the 91st Academy Awards ceremony, where "The Favourite (2018)" and Roma (2018)" lead the way with 10 nominations each, while "A Star Is Born (2018)" and "Vice (2018)" are both nominated for eight awards.Written by
The big issue these award shows now face is that their audience watches film on multiple platforms, in theatres, streaming, cable, free to air TV. The days of everyone going off to the cinema to watch a popular movie are gone, never to return. The impact the awards have is greatly diluted by this fact, the quality of the output is as good as ever but award shows that concentrate on one medium seem missing a lot, it's because they no longer reflect the audience. Also through Netflix it a lot less American centric, again diluting the award.
