With the number of movies played, one movie can get as many or as less likes or hates from the audience. Well, people have different tastes when it comes to movies and they have their own opinion about which is a good film and which is not. This is where the Academy steps in. They have a set of qualifications and rules in order to come up with which film deserves an award, leaving the others behind. Those who play favorites just have to accept the fact that award-giving bodies are created for a purpose. Their opinions will remain unheard.
Making it to the Academy
The Academy Awards is a body that is created to bring recognition to films, actors and the people behind the creation of the film. They are the experts when it comes to scrutinizing a film and its actors. However, despite their expertise in the field, there are instances where people are not satisfied with the results. This is referred to as a snub. A film or an actor/actress who people believed to made the best performance, but did not get an award for it.
Here are some of the so-called movie snubs:
1) ‘Citizen Kane’ by Alfred Hitchcock
2) ‘Pulp Fiction’ by Quentin Tarantino
3) ‘The Shawshank Redemption’
5) ‘Saving Private Ryan’ by Steven Spielberg
6) ‘The Big Lebowski’
7) ‘Brokeback Mountain’ by Paul Haggis
8) ‘E.T. – The Extra-Terrestial’ by Steven Spielberg
9) ‘Do the Right Thing’ by Spike Lee
10) ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’
People will always have their own opinion. There will be others who will be very vocal about it. But at the end of the day, it will be the Academy Awards who will have the last say. They will be the ones to decide who gets what award.
People just have to enjoy the films that are delivered to them. They can watch, learn, be inspired and be entertained and let them leave the judging to the right committee. Surely, they are experts in the field of film. Just be confident in their judgement and let all the dirty works be done by them. You would be very happy to have your favorite film reap the rewards that it deserves. Support your favorite film and see if it made to the Academies. Check out the Academies every year and see if your favorite film made it or it would just be another snub in the block.
