Film Directors React to Oscars During Commercials


Yesterday, AMPAS announced their intention to present four Oscars during commercial breaks to save time during the broadcast - Cinematography, Editing, Hair and Makeup, and Live Action Short Film (check out the ONTD post here). The outcry on film twitter was loud and immediate, and now some directors are speaking up. Alfonso Cuarón, an Academy Award-winning director, who is nominated again this year for directing Roma, was one of them. Check out more under the cut.


Guillermo del Toro, Academy Award-winning director of last year's Best Picture winner The Shape of Water


Jason Reitman, Academy Award-nominated director of Juno and Up in the Air


Their tweets join a bevy of others from actors, film critics, television makers and entertainment writers, a couple of which are posted below.

Do you think directors speaking out will have any sway on AMPAS?
