Why We Should Wait 5 Years To Award the Oscars

The Cracked Podcast #110 February 22, 2016

Sorry, the Oscars, but you’re old, out of touch and boring. We can see through your failed attempts to reach a new generation: the Anne Hathaway/James Franco catastrophe, the phony (get it?) Ellen DeGeneres selfie stunt that was totally unscripted and Samsung definitely didn’t pay the Oscars $20 million in advance for. Just stop it already. Take a few years off.

In the meantime, we at Cracked have come up with a bunch of new categories that you’re totally free to steal, such as Best Title, Best Running Time, Best Accent and Best Oscar-Bait That Didn’t Get Any Nominations Other Than This One.

Recorded live at the UCB Sunset Theatre in Los Angeles, a tuxedoed Jack O’Brien is joined by Cracked’s Dan O’Brien and Alex Schmidt, author Liana Maeby, and actor Stanley Wong of ‘The Big Short’ to brainstorm new categories, solve the Oscar’s race problem, and fix just about everything in time forSunday’s awards.
