   Ummmmm ... no. 

   You're talking about how the content is OBTAINED. 

   The Oscars are about who stars IN the content ...
   yer favorite glittering oh-so-smart-and-interesting
   celebs. 

   Alas many of those celebs have disgraced themselves
   by saying all kinds of stupid hateful stuff of late. Just
   because they make a living PRETENDING to be 
   smarter, more interesting, people doesn't mean 
   THEY are actually smarter or more interesting. 
   Just good at faking it. 

   So, dump the commie SOBs. 

   No doubt some AI programs can be refined to take
   the place of human actors - and hey, far cheaper
   and NO BULLSHIT to deal with  :-)
