Oscar Academy names Bill Kramer as new CEO

The Oscar Academy has named Bill Kramer as its new CEO. He was "the ideal choice to lead the organization at this crucial moment," said David Rubin, President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, on Tuesday (local time) in Los Angeles. Kramer, who oversaw the opening of the new Oscar Film Museum in Los Angeles, succeeds Dawn Hudson, who held the post for 11 years.

The management of the Oscar Academy had come under criticism in recent years, among other things, because of the allegation of a lack of diversity. Under the catchphrase "#OscarsSoWhite" there had been calls for a boycott of the Oscars and storms of protest in the online networks because of the insufficient consideration given to non-white filmmakers.

Hudson then advocated doubling the number of women and non-white members in the academy. The approximately 10,000 Academy members decide every year which films and filmmakers will be awarded the Oscars.

The slap scandal surrounding Hollywood star Will Smith at this year's Oscar gala also recently caused criticism. The 53-year-old hit comedian Chris Rock on stage after he made a joke about Smith's wife Jada Pinkett Smith. Smith was later barred from all Oscar ceremonies for ten years.

Will Smith banned from the Oscars until 2032

The new Oscar winner will stay at home in the future.
The board of the Oscars Academy has gathered during the day to figure out an appropriate punishment for Will Smith. The actor's small aggression attack during the gala broadcast at the end of March has had him ported from upcoming Oscars for the next ten years.

News Oscar Will Smith

"The 94th Oscars were meant to pay tribute to the individuals in our industry who have done an incredible job over the past year; however, these moments were overshadowed by the unacceptable and harmful behavior we saw Mr. Smith display on stage," the Academy wrote in a statement.
 
"During our broadcast, we did not address the situation sufficiently. We regret this. (...) The Board has decided that, for a period of 10 years from April 8, 2022, Mr. Smith will not be allowed to participate in any Oscars events. or programs, in person or virtually. "
 
Variety also writes that the Academy thanks Chris Rock who "managed to keep his composure under extraordinary circumstances". We also take the opportunity to thank all the hosts, nominees and winners who participated during the gala.
 
- I accept and respect the Academy's decision, Will Smith comments according to Deadline.
 
In the days after the Oscars scandal, Will Smith chose to voluntarily leave his membership in the Oscars Academy and can therefore no longer vote at future galas. However, nothing stops him from still being nominated and winning Oscars.

Will Smith apologizes to Chris Rock after the Oscars

The 2022 Oscars came and went, and what we will remember best was probably Will Smith's smock. The outraged movie star went on stage and dreamed of comedian Chris Rock after an inappropriate joke about Will's wife Jada Pinkett Smith. Will continued to shout swear words at the stage - and an hour later he received the Oscar for Best Male Lead.
 
Will's actions have been widely discussed in the media and among film lovers on Monday. Was Rock's joke too gross? Should Smith have been sent home without an Oscar?

While the Academy is launching an investigation into what happened, Will Smith has taken to Instagram with a public apology to Chris Rock. Here he writes that he went too far and is ashamed of his actions:
 
"Violence in all its forms is toxic and destructive. My behavior at yesterday's Oscars was unacceptable and unforgivable. Jokes at my expense are part of the job, but a joke about Jada's medical condition became too much for me and I reacted emotionally."
 
"I would like to apologize to you publicly, Chris. I went too far and it was wrong of me. I am ashamed and my actions were not signs of the man I want to be. There is no place for violence in a world of love and friendliness."
 
"I would also like to apologize to the academy, the producers behind the program, all the participants and everyone watching around the world. I would like to apologize to the Williams family and my 'King Richard' family. I deeply regret that my behavior has colored what has otherwise been a wonderful journey for all of us. "

Oscars 2022: Here are all the winners of the year

6 Oscars for "Dune", 3 for "Coda" - and only one for the pre-favorite "The Power of the Dog". Here are the big winners of the gala night!
Welcome back, the Oscars - everything is forgiven! After a couple of pandemic years that shook the film industry (and that viewer flop to broadcast last year), it was nice to see everything be just as usual. The stars were dressed up, the gold men polished, the red carpet rolled out in front of the Dolby Theater and hardly a single face mask in sight.
 
The cut prices
This year's gala was criticized in advance for choosing to award eight prizes before the live broadcast. The idea was to save some time and cut them into the program. It worked - like that. We do not have to spend too much time with the winners of Best Documentary Short Film who want to thank their mothers. Still, the gala dragged on for 40 minutes, thanks to tributes to the 60th anniversary of James Bond and the 50-year-old "The Godfather". Regina Hall wasted at least two minutes joking that she is single and desperate for a man.
 
This year's hosts
Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall generally behaved well as hosts. Some stiff jokes and some accurate - just as it should be. They ran with themselves, and the film industry in general, but also managed to break away with some seriousness and remind of the situation in Ukraine where support is needed. Hope the Oscars continue to recruit great hosts because it really makes a difference in such a long broadcast.
 
Music numbers
I'm also of the opinion that music numbers are needed to keep an Oscar gala alive and here we were treated to singing by both Beyoncé and Billie Eilish - but did we really need two songs from "Encanto"? Sticking to the nominated songs can be a good guideline for the future.
 
Zero Oscars to Sweden
There were no Swedish Oscars at tonight's gala where four make-up choirs hoped for a prize. Göran Lundström and Anna Carin Lock, nominated for their work on "House of Gucci", and Love Larson and Eva von Bahr, nominated for "Dune", were left without. The Oscar for Best Makeup & Hair was tricked instead by "The Eyes of Tammy Faye". Denmark ("Escape") and Norway ("The World's Worst Man") also lost money.
 
The favorites won
No major surprises otherwise among this year's winners. The golden men went exactly where they were going, at least according to all the odds. Jessica Chastain, Will Smith and Ariana DeBose received their statuettes. Jane Campion became the third woman ever to take home the Oscar for Best Director. Troy Kotsur is the first deaf male actor to win an Oscar.
 
"CODA" - best movie!
By the way, there was only one Oscar for Campion's "The Power of the Dog", the big favorite with 12 nominations. "Dune" leads with 6 Oscars. But the gala's real winner can still be considered Siân Heder and the feelgood drama "CODA", which won 3 Oscars - and was crowned Best Film!
 
This year's WTF
From a bang to a bang. The gala's biggest snack was Will Smith, and not because he won his first Oscar for "King Richard" ... but for the moment just before, which overshadowed his big victory. Smith received, to say the least, a strong reaction to an inappropriate joke from Chris Rock and went up on stage to pat him. These are the uncensored, live broadcasts we live for! Watch the clip here ...

When is the first Oscar coming? - Glenn Close turns 75

Los Angeles (AP) - Glenn Close is a good loser. Even with her eighth Oscar nomination, the actress went away empty-handed at the trophy gala last April - but for many she was still the star of the evening. Close caused a sensation with a special dance performance.

During the show, the then 74-year-old jumped up from her seat and spun her hips to the song "Da Butt" from the 80s film "School Daze". She caused a lot of excitement online. On Saturday (March 19) Close will be 75 years old - and there is no stopping him in front of and beyond the camera.

The many Oscar slippers can't seem to discourage her. Since her first nomination for "Garp and How He Saw the World" in 1983, she has failed eight times. She is Hollywood's actress with the worst losing streak, followed by Deborah Kerr, Thelma Ritter and Amy Adams with six Oscar failures each.

She cannot complain about a lack of roles
At the 93rd Academy Awards last year, Close was in the running with a completely unglamorous supporting role: In the family drama "Hillbilly Elegy" she is hardly recognizable as the strict grandmother Mamaw with a gray wig, mottled skin and sloppy sweaters. In the end, the Oscar went to the South Korean Yuh-Jung Youn for "Minari - Where we put down roots".

Even with gray hair, the actress is constantly in front of the camera, most recently in the future drama "Swan Song" alongside Oscar winner Mahershala Ali. In it, Close embodied an ambitious doctor who clones people in a remote laboratory.

She does not complain about a lack of roles. "I'm getting better with age," she said in 2017 to the German Press Agency at the Toronto International Film Festival before the world premiere of her film "The Nobel Prize Winner's Wife". In the drama by director Björn Runge, she shone as an increasingly frustrated wife alongside a smug writer who was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Small nuances in Close's face show that behind the calm, almost stoic facade things are beginning to seethe - another Oscar-worthy performance.

She didn't leave out any genre
Close knows her way around big relationship dramas in front of the camera. In "A Fateful Affair" (1987) she was the cold-blooded Alex Forrest, who, as the rejected lover of a family man (Michael Douglas), takes revenge with telephone terror and threats of suicide. A year later she was the scheming marquise in Stephen Frears' baroque drama "Dangerous Liaisons". In 1990 she played a comatose aristocrat in "The Affair of Sunny von B.". Whether comedy roles, as the fur lover Cruella De Vil in "101 Dalmatians", or as the tough commander Nova Prime in the superhero spectacle "Guardians of the Galaxy" - Close leaves no genre.

"Albert Nobbs" (2011) was more than just a role for Close. The actress also wrote the script and produced the drama about a woman in Ireland at the end of the 19th century who disguises herself as a man to make a living.

Following her screen successes in the 1980s, Close found a new role. In 1988, at the age of 41, she gave birth to her only child. Daughter Annie Maude comes from the relationship with her boyfriend at the time, the film producer John Starke. The 33-year-old has played alongside her mother several times. Close divorced her third husband, biotech entrepreneur David Shaw, in 2015.

Difficult childhood in the sect
She grew up in the US state of Connecticut in a strictly puritanical family of doctors. When she was young, the family joined the Moral Re-Armament (MRA) movement. As a teenager, she was a member of the MRA vocal group Up with People, which toured the world.

The sect exercised strong control, Close said in 2021 in the sequel to the documentary series "The Me You Can't See: A Path Forward" by US presenter Oprah Winfrey and Prince Harry. She only managed to get out at the age of 22. Close also blamed her childhood experiences for her three divorces. "I haven't been successful in my relationships and finding a steady partner and I'm sorry."

For over ten years, Close has been committed to helping people with mental health problems. Her sister has bipolar depression and her nephew has schizoaffective disorder, according to the website of their joint foundation, Bring Change 2 Mind (BC2M). On Instagram, Close refers to the work of the organization and the help for the mentally ill. But even more often she posts photos and stories of her little dog. "Proud to be Pip's most important person," the actress wrote on her profile.
