We've been talking a lot about everything that happened at the Academy Awards. Unfortunately, our general consensus is that this was the worst Oscars in a long, long time, and it ended up being a ceremony that seemed to devalue the very craft it is supposed to celebrate.

Signs weren't good from the start when the Academy decided to cut several of the craft awards from the main ceremony, opting to award several statues off-air while celebrities were still arriving outside. A few creators made a point to arrive early—but despite this choice, the ceremony still ran long. What was the point?

Then, during the show, you had jokes that often punched down or continued to devalue films, creators, and their work. Did you hear Regina Hall's bit about offering audience members a "never-before-seen" film?

“Now, I’ve got the screener for a never-before-seen film, not even by the director," she said. "The Last Duel.

At the end of the night, I felt disappointed. The vibe of the show was very negative. I love movies. I want to make movies. I want to watch the Oscars and feel inspired.

I have been watching the Oscars for as long as I can remember. I recall fun segments and openers from 20 years ago still. But more recently, there's an Oscar video that I've returned to again and again.

During the 90th Academy Awards a couple of years ago, the show ran this montage celebrating 90 years of movies. Watching it live, I remember being moved to tears and just thinking, I love movies so much. This is what the Oscars should be. This is why we're all working so hard to try to break in. We should feel excited, not bitter, about the craft.

We want to share it again with all of you in case you're in need of some inspiration or just want to remember what it's like to celebrate films and what it means to make them. Watch it below.
