The 82nd Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, honored the best films of 2009 and took place March 7, 2010, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California beginning at 5:30 p.m. PST/8:30 p.m. EST (01:30 UTC, March 8). The ceremony was scheduled well after its usual late-February date to avoid coinciding with the 2010 Winter Olympics.[7] The Academy Awards ceremony was televised in the United States by ABC. Actors Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin hosted the show. Martin hosted for the third time, after previously presiding over the 73rd and 75th ceremonies, while Baldwin hosted the show for the first time. This was the first telecast to have multiple hosts since the 59th ceremony.[8] However, announcer Gina Tuttle did a majority of the presenter introductions.

On June 24, 2009, Academy president Sid Ganis announced at a press conference that the 2010 ceremony would feature ten Best Picture nominees instead of five,[9] a practice that was discontinued after 1943 Awards. On February 20, 2010, in a ceremony at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills, California, the Academy Awards for Technical Achievement were presented by host Elizabeth Banks.[10]

The Hurt Locker won six awards, including Best Picture and Best Director for Kathryn Bigelow, the first woman to ever win an Academy Award for Best Director. Other major winners were Avatar with three awards, and Crazy Heart, Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire and Up, with two awards.

News and recap

Because of the declining viewership of recent Academy Awards ceremonies, the Academy sought ideas to revamp the show while renewing interest with the nominated films. After the previous year's telecast, which saw a 13% increase in viewership, many within the Motion Picture Academy proposed new ways to give the awards a more populist appeal. Then-president Sid Ganis announced that the ceremony would feature ten Best Picture nominees, rather than traditional five. The expansion was a throwback to the Academy's early years in the 1930s and 1940s, when eight to twelve films were nominated. "Having 10 Best Picture nominees is going allow Academy voters to recognize and include some of the fantastic movies that often show up in the other Oscar categories, but have been squeezed out of the race for the top prize," AMPAS President Sid Ganis said in a press conference.[9] "I can't wait to see what that list of ten looks like when the nominees are announced in February."[9] This also necessitated a change in the voting system from first-past-the-post to alternative vote.[12]

The Academy hired director and choreographer Adam Shankman and former 20th Century Fox executive Bill Mechanic as producers for the ceremony. Shankman revealed in an interview on NPR's Fresh Air that he and co-producer Mechanic had originally chosen Sacha Baron Cohen as the host, but the Academy rejected this proposal because Cohen was "too much of a wild card."[13] Chris Harrison hosted "Road to the Oscars",[14] a weekly behind-the-scenes video blog on the Academy's website, oscar.com.[15] David Rockwell designed a new set for the ceremony.[16] The red carpet was directed by Robert Osborne. Gina Tuttle reprised her role from last year's telecast as announcer for the ceremony.[17] A tribute to the late director John Hughes featured a montage of his films followed by the appearance on-stage of several notable actors from those films.[18]

Many of the previous year's well-received elements returned. Five actors with a personal connection with each of the nominees presented the Best Actor and Best Actress awards. Shankman and Mechanic announced their intention to keep the running time of the telecast shorter.[19] Most presenters this year introduced each winner with the phrase "And the winner is ..." rather than "And the Oscar goes to..." for the first time since 1988. The Academy gave no reason for the change to a phrase which it had once felt humiliating to the other nominees; but apparently acquiesced in Shankman and Mechanic's decision to return to the older phrase.[20]

Voting trends and summary

For the first time since 2003, the field of major nominees included at least one blockbuster at the American and Canadian box offices. Five of the nominees had grossed over $100 million before the nominations were announced.[21] Many critics, reporters, and entertainment industry analysts cite the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences's decision to expand the roster of Best Picture nominees from five to ten films as one of the reasons for this.[21][22][23]

Three of the ten Best Picture nominees were among the top ten releases in box office during the nominations. At the time of the announcement on February 2, Avatar was the highest grossing film among the Best Picture nominees with $596 million in domestic box office receipts.[21] Other top-ten domestic box office hits nominated were Up with $293 million,[21] and The Blind Side with $237.9 million.[21] Among the remaining seven nominees, Inglourious Basterds was the next highest grossing film with $120.5 million[21] followed by District 9 ($115.6 million),[21] Up in the Air ($73 million),[24] Precious: Based on the Novel "Push" by Sapphire ($45 million),[24] The Hurt Locker ($12 million),[24] An Education ($9.4 million),[24] and finally A Serious Man ($9.2 million).[24]

Of the top 50 grossing movies of the year, 46 nominations went to 13 films on the list. Only Avatar (1st), Up (5th), The Blind Side (8th), Inglourious Basterds (25th), District 9 (27th), The Princess and The Frog (32nd), Julie & Julia (34th), Up in the Air (41st), and Coraline (43rd) were nominated for directing, acting, screenwriting, Best Picture or Animated Feature.[25] The other top-50 box office hits that earned nominations were Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2nd), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (3rd), Star Trek (7th), and Sherlock Holmes (10th).[25]

Submitted films qualified for consideration for nomination

The following films have been submitted during the January 1, 2009 — December 31, 2009 period by their producers and distributors and qualified for consideration for nomination.[43]

Presenters and performers

The following individuals presented awards or performed musical numbers.[44]

In Memoriam

Here is a list of those honored by the Academy during the ceremony, in order of appearance in the memorial montage, which was produced by Chuck Workman.[46] A separate tribute was held earlier in the evening for the late filmmaker John Hughes, presented by actors Matthew Broderick, Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, Ally Sheedy, Anthony Michael Hall, Macaulay Culkin and Jon Cryer.[47]

Controversies

The Hurt Locker producer email scandal

Nicolas Chartier, a producer of Best Picture nominee The Hurt Locker, was banned from attending the ceremony by the Academy due to a violation of Oscar rules after Chartier sent e-mail to Academy members, advising them to vote for his film in the Best Picture category and not the equally nominated Avatar.[48] The producer has since apologized for his actions.[49][50][51]

Canceled Sacha Baron Cohen skit

Sacha Baron Cohen, who had originally been chosen by Mechanic and Shankman to host the ceremony before the Academy rejected the idea, was also uninvited from the Oscar ceremony as the producers of the show feared that a planned skit between him and Ben Stiller would have been insulting to director James Cameron. The skit was to feature Baron Cohen dressed as a female Na'vi, and Ben Stiller translating what he said, ending with Baron Cohen declaring he was "pregnant with the love child of James Cameron".[52] Though Cameron said he was content with the skit being performed,[53] Baron Cohen was still dropped as a presenter.[54] However, the skit was eventually done by Stiller in a Na'vi costume and speaking the language of one, with the joke being changed to "dressing up seemed like a better idea in rehersal".

Cutting of the Best Original Song performances

In February 2010, Mechanic and Shankman announced that the ceremony would not feature performances by the Best Original Song nominees, as in most years past. Instead all five pieces would be played over a montage of the films they appeared in.[55] Some Oscar producers objected to this move, saying that it went against Academy Award ceremony tradition, and denied each song's respective musical artist from performing in front of a worldwide audience.[56]

Oscar advertising and viewership issues

On March 1, 2010, ABC New York City affiliate WABC-TV announced that it would likely end its services with cable television company Cablevision on March 7, 2010,[57] the weekend of the 82nd Academy Awards. The station was removed from Cablevision's lineup at 12:01 a.m. ET on March 7.[58][59][60] Over 3.1 million viewers in that area would have been unable to watch the Oscars (and other station-related and ABC-related programming), and it was projected to cause a devastating blow to advertisers and viewership for the Oscars.[61] At about 8:43 p.m. ET, thirteen minutes after the awards ceremony began, Cablevision resumed transmission of the WABC feed.[59][62][63]

In Memoriam exclusions

The annual In Memoriam tribute included only 30 of the over 100 entertainment figures who had died during the previous year.[46] Among the celebrities that were omitted from the montage were Farrah Fawcett, Captain Lou Albano, Zelda Rubinstein, Ed McMahon, Henry Gibson, Wayne Allwine, Richard Todd (a former Best Actor Oscar nominee) and Bea Arthur.[64] Film critic Roger Ebert criticized the omission of Fawcett on Twitter. There was also dissatisfaction over the inclusion of Michael Jackson in the montage, as he was also not principally known for work in film.[65] The list of names to be included in the Memoriam segment is compiled by a small committee of the Academy, not the producers of the telecast.[46]

Music by Prudence acceptance speech

Shortly after Music by Prudence director Roger Ross Williams began his speech accepting the Oscar for Best Documentary Short Subject, he was suddenly interrupted by Elinor Burkett, his co-producer. The scene was described as the ceremony's weirdest or most awkward moment, and was compared by Williams and others to Kanye West's interruption of Taylor Swift's acceptance of the Best Female Video Award at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards five months earlier.[66]

Burkett, who lives in Zimbabwe where most of the film was shot, had sued Williams over the finished film, a suit that had been settled by the time of the ceremony. She explained to Salon.com, to which she was once a contributor, that the film had been her idea. "Roger had never even heard of Zimbabwe before I told him about this." She had been upset that Williams and HBO chose to focus on one person instead of the entire band, as the members had been led to believe. "I felt my role in this has been denigrated again and again, and it wasn't going to happen this time." She hustled onstage because, she claimed, Williams' mother had blocked her from going down with her cane to prevent her from sharing the stage.[67]

"She just ambushed me", said Williams, "I just expected her to stand there. I had a speech prepared." He said it was made clear by the Academy that only one person can give an acceptance speech and disputed her contention that she had come up with the idea for the film. He said his mother had merely gotten up to hug him.[67]
