Discovered this link at Rotten Tomatoes. From E! Online. (Warning: pop-ups) Evidently, in an effort to trim the broadcast down, they'll be attempting to limit the number of honorary Oscars awarded. To me, this is wrongheaded. To people who actually like movies, the honorary awards are some of the more memorable moments, not to mention some of the most deserved statuettes to get handed out each year. Rhetorical Question Alert: Was I was naive to assume that the Oscars were about movies? I'd personally like them to eliminate the "best original song" award completely and, by extension, the tedious performance of the nominees. This award hasn't been relevant for over 30 years, since the movie musical faded into relative oblivion. They should have axed it the same way they stopped handing out separate awards for B&W and colour cinematography. But, I guess pop stars make for better TV ratings than a bunch of "crusty geezers" that most of the audience has never heard of.
