The 94th annual Academy Awards wanted to organise a good event for everyone. They wanted to entertain the huge audience for ABC, but it turned into a train wreck that people couldn’t walk away from.
The motion picture academy was aiming for a normal and relaxed award event after the COVID-19 pandemic. Producer, Will Packer, wanted to bring back some entertainment – Wanda Sykes, Regina Hall, and Amy Schumer did a joint monologue as well as their bits.
They wanted to boost ratings by editing some of the speeches and inviting big guests to the show. The guests ranged from Tony Hawk to Lady Gaga to BTS.
Regardless of all the efforts, the event ceremony didn’t live up to the expectations. It was not only boring but cringe-worthy and terrifying. No one would have imagined, the things that happened will happen at the 2022 Oscars.
The things that could have been managed by the hosts, writers, and producers, were managed poorly. There was bad comedy in all the wrong places.
The parts of the award ceremony where the producers had no control were the speeches, the winners, and the slap. All this made the 94th Oscars go out of control. Some may find it entertaining, but it was certainly not.
If award shows go like this people will eventually stop watching them. Producers are required to pay more attention, so that future award ceremonies don’t turn into a night full of chaos.
The Oscars night was a combination of bad and good moments. It started with Beyoncé’s performance, but thereafter everything slowly went downhill.
Ariana DeBose, the winner of the best actress award for “West Side Story” became the first queer Afro-Latina to get an Oscar.
There were few good jokes in the hosts’ monologue. But Schumer’s solo bit was more entertaining. Troy Kotsur of “CODA” bagged the award for the best supporting actor and ended up giving an emotional speech. Sebastián Yatra performed “Encanto” song “Dos Oruguitas.”
Apart from this, there were a lot of bad choices. Like why did Schumer do a second monologue? Why the presenters were giving long, unfunny introductions to their categories? Why was Regina Hall treated as a sex-crazed single woman, ogling at men she called up onstage?
Keeping everything aside, Oscars 2022 will go down in the history of Academy Awards, but not for good reasons. It will be remembered as one of the most chaotic award nights ever.
