What should you know about this Oscar season ?
The Hollywood Films Awards officially declare the Award season open !! Are you ready for this Award season?!? You better be cuz it’s going to be a loooong promoting season. You know that this year the Oscar ceremony is schedule on the 2Th of March (my Bday btw ^^) so it’s 5 months to go from now. 5 months of red carpets, gossips, movie premieres, movie directors propaganda, celebrities Oscar campaigning, long and dramatic discourse, etcetera, etcetera.
The Rules of The Oscar Strategic Campaign
The Academy Awards is the most prestigious event in the film industry and is the final clue of a long list of award event. It’s also the biggest event watched and talked about. But it’s also the place for Oscar campaigners. Oscar campaign is a strategic tactic use by everyone involved in the Hollywood film industry to increase chances to win the little statuette. From movie directors, to actors and studio, every interview, advertise, red carpet, tv show is a very calculate action.
Last year Anne Hattaway was strongly critized for her extravagance campaign, but campaigning is often due to the fact that big studios have high hopes for their films.
The factors here are a) the studios involved and b) big hit movies that had extra money,” she said. “And the fact you have a close race between two big studio movies. They have reason to believe they have a chance to win.” huffingtonpost.com
