  • Eight significant categories being cut from the Academy Awards broadcast

When the bulk of your budget depends upon one annually televised ceremony, you've got bigger problems than ratings. The more the Academy puts Oscar ratings ahead of awarding film excellence, the faster they push themselves to irrelevance or out of existence.
