My Annual Oscars Rant

Dear Planet Earth,

The Oscars are not a popularity contest. The Oscars awards given by the film industry for artistic and scientific (yes, scientific) achievement in film. If you want to watch an awards ceremony for movies that were really popular, may I suggest the People's Choice or MTV Movie Awards? If you don't like the Oscars, don't care about the movies and film industry professionals who were nominated, and don't want to sit through a three-hour event, then just don't watch it. No one is forcing you to turn your tv to ABC on Sunday night. Pop in a movie from Redbox, or watch a different channel. And do all of us who do care about the Oscars a favor: stop whining, and leave us alone.

Sincerely,

Fans of the Oscars
