These Oscar categories would make things more fun
Aside from the jaw dropping mistake made when someone handed Warren Beatty the wrong envelope and it was incorrectly announced that La La Land had won best picture (it was actually Moonlight), the Oscars Sunday night was just more of the same. Best Supporting this, Best Set Design that. And often for movies that many of us with young kids are far too busy to get out and see anyway so you feel a little lost.
How fun would it be if the Oscars updated their categories and gave more niche awards? I've come up with a few of my own, and we asked listeners to put in their two cents.
A Lifetime Achievement Award for Most Times In And Out Of Drug Rehab And Still Able To Be Hired To Do A Film (Robert Downey Jr.)
Best Unrealistically Mismatched Couple (And the award goes to Seth Rogen and Katherine Heigl for Knocked Up!)
Best Failed Attempt At A Foreign Accent In Film (and the winner...Kevin Costner in Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves)
Best Milking Of A Once Perfectly Good Movie Idea (Award goes to The Hangover II, The Hangover III, and any potential future Hangovers)
Best Sex Scene That Makes You Never Want To Have Sex Again (Billy Bob Thornton with Halle Berry in Monster's Ball)
Some our listeners offered were:
Best Emotional Breakdown called in by Dina
She offered Michael Douglas in Falling Down
Most Killing By A Lead Actor came from Suzie
Wouldn't this have to be Sylvester Stallone in Rambo?
Best Payback Scene was Rick's idea
Could there be a better one than what Andy Dufresne did to the warden in the end of Shawshank Redemption?
Best Collateral Damage In A Car Chase belonged to Joy
She liked Crank for this category but Bill wants The Blues Brothers
