Are You Freaking Kidding Me?

Apparently, Chris Rock isn't the only change coming to the Oscars. The producers, in a misguided attempt to speed the show up and make it more "hip" or something, are going to present some of the awards to the winners while they are IN THEIR SEATS. And they want to get all the nominees on stage for some of the award announcements.

This just seems terribly misguided to me. I know the show has been slumping in the ratings, but I think one of the attractions of the whole event will always be how old-school it is. It's kind of stodgy, but it's the only awards show where the attendees can REALLY dress to the nines. It's the one awards show where some reverence for the history of Hollywood still remains. I don't want to see it turned into the Golden Globes which is, really, kind of trashy...
