[ # ] The Lonely Island sings why aren’t blockbusters nominated for Oscars
March 5th, 2018 under Oscars

Back in 2014, The Lonely Island was nominated for an Oscar for their song Everything Is Awesome from The Lego Movie. Well everything is not awesome with the Oscars because this year’s was the least watched. We can blame the politics, the host and so on. But, I think, the real reason is because there are no movies to root for.

They keep nominating movies that no one has seen nor they want to see. I bet you if Wonder Woman was nominated, at least 3 more million people would have watched. So why not nominate films that people have seen?

The Lonely Island pondered that thought, and wrote a song called Why Not Me? It features Thor, Wonder Woman, Tiffany Haddish, The Chrises, Pennywise and Aquaman asking that very question. The question we have all been asking for years. Well everyone who is not a member of the Academy.

Seriously, when I was kid they nominated movies I saw. Which is why I still watch the Academy Awards. When I told my friends’ 9-year-old that Wonder Woman wasn’t nominated, she just could not understand it. Even though her dad and I would watch the Oscars together in college, his daughter will not have that same experience. We were raised on them and she was not. There is nothing for her to get behind since Frozen and she was too young when it was nominated.

Do you think the Academy should nominate one blockbuster a year to get viewers or keep it as it is. I mean imagine the numbers if Black Panther got some noms?
