My bad. I focused on the entirely ridiculous part of your post instead of the whiny.
I'm really not getting the whole hate for the Oscars thing. There is no monetary award and getting an Oscar wouldn't make people think DOTM is any better than it already isn't.
There's still a lot of good things about the Oscars. It's a red-carpet event so we get some of the best fashions for the year, when the host is good we get funny performances and if nobody cares about who wins the awards it's not hurting anyone.
