Oscars 2022: Disrespectful,” “Clumsily Edited” Presentation of 8 Oscars

Winners Complain about the “Disrespectful,” “Clumsily Edited” Presentation of 8 Oscars

As the dust settles on the Oscars telecast, the controversy over the decision to pre-tape some categories has no signs of abating: “We were excluded for no reason.

Following Sunday’s 94th Academy Awards, outrage over the Oscars controversy hasn’t subsided.

The decision over the decision to present eight awards before the live telecast of the Oscars and add edited excerpts from their speeches into the broadcast.

After hearing from the winners backstage on Sunday — as well as nominees, past winners and other Academy members who watched from the affected categories.

There was not a single person who had something positive to say about the way in which this was handled.

Will Smith accepts the Actor in a Leading Role award for ‘King Richard’ onstage during the 94th Annual Academy Awards at Dolby Theatre on March 27, 2022 in Hollywood, California.

“I hope you are hiding in shame and regret today,” wrote Oscar winning rerecording mixer Paul Massey in an email that he says he sent to Academy president David Rubin on Monday. “That was truly the WORST Oscar show ever to go on air. Fat, bloated, with no directive to keep it within three hours as we in the eight pre-recorded categories were promised. We were excluded for no reason.”

Massey, who this year received his tenth nomination, for No Time To Die, continued in his assessment of the show: “Full of over-indulgent intros with no regard for the talent that makes up the membership of the Academy … except for those truly above the line. The class system has NEVER been on such display as it was last night.”

The Academy did not comment for this piece.

In the controersy leading up to Sunday’s Oscars, the format change was attributed to a need to shake up the show. The 2021 ceremony was the lowest-rated Oscars telecast ever, with just 10.4 million viewers, which due to COVID was a scaled-down event at Union Station in downtown Los Angeles.

This year’s show did better. The ABC telecast drew 16.62 million as it returned to Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre, though it was the second-lowest rated show since Nielsen began tracking total viewers in the 1970s. Before 2021, each year’s ratings had topped 20 million.

The pre-show message about the format change was that the 2022 Oscars had to control its length, but the telecast ultimately ran 3 hours and 40 minutes.

“The purpose as explained to us was to ensure that the show ran three hours, and that categorically went completely wrong,” said a nominee whose category wasn’t presented live. “My hope is the Academy has a major overhaul.”

Another Academy member, who has been Oscar nominated in previous years, said they were concerned going into the show that the telecast plan “seemed very disrespectful to many of the nominees and winners.”

“It turned out even worse,” said this Academy member, who noted the show ran over its goal time. “And they still couldn’t fit in the whole 45-second acceptance speeches in the eight excluded categories.”

Backstage on Sunday, winners were critical of the format, including Dune film editor Joe Walker, who pointed out the irony that his Oscar acceptance speech was edited — the beginning, the middle and the end. “We understand the pressure on the Academy,” Walker said, adding, “We all stand together in the Academy with equal strength, and I feel strongly that that was a disservice.”

Jenny Beavan, who collected an Award for costume design for Cruella during the live show, said, “I think it felt cheating on the people.”

Alberto Mielgro, director of Oscar-winning animated short The Windshield Wiperadded, “I hope this is the last year they do that.”

After the show, it didn’t take long for the chorus of disapproval to spread. On Monday Frank Oz said in a tweet “After being a member for 30 years I’m embarrassed to be associated with the Oscars telecast. Not because of ‘The Slap’ but because of the phoniness of the show. All I sense is a desperate attempt to get more viewers by any means possible, not a show about the love of making movies.”

But sources in the affected branches claim that the way the 8 categories were edited into the live broadcast felt clumsy and rushed.

“Joe Walker’s acceptance speech was truly witty and pointed in its full-length form, but not in the truncated version,” said an Oscar winner from a previous year. “The shortened categories seemed clumsily edited and hastily stuffed into the show. Better than last year–an easy target–and maybe the best in the last ten years, but still a stinker. The Academy must find a new way to finance itself and get out from under the thumb of ABC/Disney.”

The Academy receives a licensing fee of around $100 million-plus for the show, plus a piece of advertising.

“It was cumbersome, not smooth,” added a prior Oscar recipient from another branch. “It used to be a celebration of all aspects of movie making … They were abrupt; there was no chance to focus on what the award meant.”

A nominee in an affected branch pointed out that those — like themselves — who were seated for the so-called “golden hour” awards were in place by 4 p.m., an hour before the live broadcast began, and were “exhausted from the length of the show … Everyone was so fed up by the end.”

Oscar winning sound vet Tom Fleishman resigned his Academy membership over the decision to present the categories before the live broadcast and four-time sound mixing nominee Peter Kurland said he intends to step down, while two recent Academy Award winners told THR that they were considering similar moves.

“This wasn’t the Academy Awards,” another member said on Monday. “If this is going to be the new format, at that point I would have to give thought to if I want to stay in the Academy. A lot of people are thinking the same thing.”

On Wednesday, a full meeting of the Academy’s board of governors is scheduled, though the Will Smith/Chris Rock incident is expected to be the main topic.

Later, another Board meeting is expected to include a full post-mortem on the Oscars.

This summer, the Academy will elect a new president, as Rubin has termed out, and a new CEO to replace the outgoing Dawn Hudson.

Massey concluded in his email to Rubin: “This awards season, your actions along with Dawn Hudson’s and the rest of the so-called ‘leadership’ have caused great damage to what was once heralded as a great institution–one to be held in high regard. Well, no more–I am ashamed to be an Academy member, a nominee in a second-tier category (sound), having to explain your misguided decisions and actions to those outside of the industry. Shame on you–You’re leaving the Academy in shambles.”
