Call me an Oscar cynic. The Oscars are glamourous, huge, incredible – just the two words together Academy Award , that one special night, the hype leading to it, the images so powerful, showers us in electric beads, shiny skin and lots of money. I’ve met, known and worked with nominees, winners and losers (still bitter after decades for not winning). The stories are different from the inside out. Oscar is hip hype, and the finger on the button for next up fashion and film wins, and have nots. As a commercial awards entity, I think the Oscars is the last bastion of the industry as it was. I somehow doubt it will be held in the same regards perhaps 10 years from now, or less. We’ll see.
