Those of us in animation always gripe that the rest of Hollywood doesn’t care or know the first thing about animated films. There are tons of anecdotal stories to support this position, but finally, we’ve got some definitive proof. And if you think Hollywood doesn’t understand animation, it’s even worse than you could imagine.
AAHAHAHA OH MY GOD
whoa whoa whoa, you’re telling me that people can just straight-up not vote for an entire category? and even the people who do vote aren’t required to actually watch all the nominees? these fucking grown men have looser completion requirements than middle school reading classes
reasons the academy voting systems is flawed and the awards dont mean as much as they seem to! Also, theres almost 5800 voting members, and according to this thing “Of the 5,100+ active voters confirmed, 94% were Caucasian, 77% were male, and 54% were found to be over the age of 60. 33% of voting members are former nominees (14%) and winners (19%).”
Its not compulsory politics and its not industry-reviewed with any sort of scientific method. Its voting for prom king and queen in a class of thousands.
