Ever watched an award show and sighed at the seemingly countless number of names that are being thanked in every acceptance speech? In that case, you’re in luck.
The Academy Awards have decided to cut out the name dropping at the upcoming Oscars. This by having all nominees write cards with the names they want to thank in advance.
Those who win will have their cards displayed, so people can read the names themselves and the speeches can be about more interesting thoughts and kept to around 45 seconds.
I like the idea – the question is if it will work? On Sunday 28 February we’ll know.
