    Do you know what I hate about these awards shows, particularly the movie Golden Globes and the Academy Awards? Voting members get to see advance early copies, weeks maybe months before you and I see them in our metroplexes. As long as there’s ONE theater, nationwide, offering the movie in so-called “arthouse theaters,” the voters and the critics get to see these films and review them before most of the country gets to see them.
    Just doesn’t seem right.

  • Daniel


    You are absolutely wrong. Most members do not get to see early advances of the movies prior to the everyone else. Members get dvds in the mail from the academy while the movie is still playing or prior to everyone else buying or renting the dvd. While some of them may get to see some prescreening because of their importance in the industry, most members either go to the movie theaters or watch it at home. In either case, the general public has the same opportunity to watch it

  • Ralph Hahn

    Daniel: But, what I’m concerned about is that the end-of-year critics’ reviews of these films, opened in limited release, are out weeks before the cineplexes. If you live in NYC or L.A., there’s likely a theater among those playing in “selected cities.” But, if you’re in Bungfork, Mississippi, you won’t be seeing it until it goes wide. By that time, all of critics’ and industry insiders have selected, and maybe nominated, before the general public gets to see it.

    Good line from Letterman before he became a spokesman for the DNC: “The film will be released in selected cities, nationwide. I pray to God that your city has been selected.” lol

    Why do these things have to be announced MONTHS before the telecast? I mean is there really this huge group of people sitting around and twitching their hands just waiting for the announcement? So stupid.

    To quote Jack Valenti (former President of the Motion Picture Academy); the movie that wins the Academy Award for Best Picture is usually the serious human drama film that is released at the end of the year, so it’s fresh in the mind of the voters, (and it can still make money at the box office if it wins the award, unlike the movie released in the beginning, or middle part of the year, which will probably be on home video by the time the awards are given out in February, and will not make as much money if it wins the award). Hollywood released their “Oscar bait” films in a few select theaters after Labor Day in September, and sometimes in between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve. Then the movie goes into wide release after January 1. The general public does not vote for the Academy Award or the Golden Globes, (they vote in the CBS People’s Choice Awards if they are so inclined to do so), and the movie studios are more interested in making the AA and GG voter happy, than average person who can not vote for one of these awards.
