The Oscars changed how we think about artists.
It’s also changed how Hollywood works.
In the lead-up to this year’s ceremony, the Academy’s Creative Arts Committee made a series of announcements that are sure to be celebrated by artists and the creative community.
And the results?
It’s an amazing show.
But it’s also a reminder that we’re not all in this together.
Here are eight reasons why.
It really was a new year The Oscars are a celebration of the work of all sorts.
Artists, filmmakers, filmmakers and writers are all represented in the hall, and that includes stars like Russell Crowe, Matthew McConaughey, and Will Smith.
And while some people might argue that the nominees are a reflection of the year, that’s not the case.
They’re a celebration and reflection of a specific kind of talent, one that is unique to the film and television industry.
There are no winners, no losers, no nominees.
This year’s crop of nominees was not just a reflection and reflection, it was a celebration.
It didn’t take a genius to know that the Oscars were a celebration in 2017 There were a lot of awards that went on this year, and none of them were particularly impressive.
The best actor Oscar went to the best actor category, for example.
The film and TV nominations were pretty much the same, but the winners and nominees were a little different.
It was more of a “we’re going to have to work together” sort of thing, rather than a “the winners and losers have been decided.”
There were plenty of awards where the best actress and the best supporting actor won.
But the other nominees weren’t nearly as consistent.
The Golden Globes were the same.
The BAFTAs weren’t quite as exciting.
It had an interesting theme There’s nothing wrong with choosing an awards show that’s an opportunity for reflection.
But in 2017, there were several instances in which the Oscars seemed to go off script.
For example, the awards ceremony was not as much of a reflection on the past year as it had been in 2016, and the winners seemed to have their own distinct narrative.
And some of the big winners didn’t seem to have the same resonance in 2017 as they did in 2016.
(Take, for instance, the Golden Globys.
For a time, they appeared to have an incredibly different vibe from the rest of the Oscars.
In 2016, they were more focused on the actors’ performances than the nominees, and their speeches were more subdued.)
But in this year?
There were no “we can’t work together because this is a reflection” signs.
The Oscars were the perfect place to reflect on the work that’s been done this year.
The nominees were chosen by a bunch of different people The Academy’s creative team has a great history of choosing winners and making it clear that a large portion of the winners will be recognized.
This time, however, it wasn’t as clear.
Some of the nominees were clearly chosen by people with different artistic backgrounds.
For instance, Iggy Azalea and Justin Timberlake were both nominated for best rapper.
But there were also nominees who came from a variety of different backgrounds, including actress Jennifer Lawrence, singer-songwriter Elton John, actor Ben Affleck, and actor-musician John Legend.
And even though all of these nominees have won Oscars, none of these people received a perfect vote.
For some of these nominated artists, their votes came in second to no one.
It seemed like the Academy wanted to be more diverse This year, the nominations were split by gender, ethnicity, and age.
This didn’t change how the awards were selected, but it did give the nominees more of an opportunity to be different from the people who got them.
There were more women and people of color nominated for the best director, for one.
And there were more African-American nominees for best actor.
But all of that didn’t translate to the majority of the nominations going to people who are different than the rest.
It looked a lot like the Golden Globe Awards There was something special about this year that was so different from anything else in recent memory.
This was the first time in nearly 30 years that the Academy had a whole different award format in place.
Instead of going to the top 20, they chose the top 10, with the top three nominations being announced, and then the winner announced.
It meant that there were no nominees that had been on the receiving end of a particular sort of criticism, like when Emma Stone was nominated for Best Actress in a Drama for her role in “American Hustle,” which has been criticized by some as a “white woman” movie.
Instead, this year the top two nominees were determined by a more traditional and inclusive formula: Who do you think deserved it?
And the winners of the top prizes were determined according to that formula.
The new Oscars system wasn’t perfect
