  • Yes, the Oscars Matter.

    The Oscar Awards for excellence in film certainly do matter. The awards are an industry's way of recognizing and expressing appreciation of a job well done. The ceremony itself is also entertainment for the masses, a couture fashion show, and it gives a little insight into some of the year's best films.

  • Only To Those That Receive Them

    My argument about Academy Awards and Grammys are as follows. First look at the list of all the people who have never received them. Then compare that list with those who have. Then look at all those who have never even received a nomination then compare that to those who have. Look at the list of those who have only received one then compare that to those who have won multiple awards.

    My point being that no, they don't really matter to me or the general public who will continue to admire their favourite artists and their works regardless. However they do matter to those who receive them no matter how many self deprecating statements upon reception are made because they do open doors to their careers. Ones that may probably stay closed without them.

    Most of my favourite actors and artists have never received these awards. I rest my case.

  • They do not.

    They are just made for the Hollywood elitists, nothing more, nothing less. It was shocking even back in 1970 when they awarded Best Actor to John Wayne (i.E. See Sylvester Stallone and Burt Reynolds). See they couldn't wait to give an Oscar to Adele but they couldn't give Phil Collins or Jon Bon Jovi one. It's snob city, you know it and I know it.
    I agree with George C. Scott; it's all political and it's just a popularity contest. If it isn't, you can give one to Britains own Mama Cass but the can't give the Beatles on for a Hard Day's Night. God knows there wasn't ANY songs in that movie that didn't scream out at you.

  • They don't pick good movies, they pick movies that made money and were popular with audiences- both are not indicators of truly great films.

    They don't pick good movies, they pick movies that made money and were popular with audiences- both are not indicators of truly great films. For example, 12 Angry Men and Vertigo were both duds at the box office, yet are seen today as classic and great works of art. The Oscars is a joke and half the movies that win, no one talks about or watches ever again. It's almost like they already have decided who will be nominated and win before even watching the movies.

  • The Oscars are just a big waste of money.

    In the grand scheme of things, the Oscars don't matter. They are just another way for Hollywood to waste money. That money is better spent on starving kids or by being donated to research to kill deadly diseases. The Oscars are just a big waste of time and are really not necessary.

  • No they don't.

    To the average person, the Oscars don't mean anything. Of course they mean something to those nominated and to the entertainment industry. But ultimately they don't mean anything. They are awards given out but they aren't determined by the regular person who watches the movies or even their peers in the industry.
