    “The Academy has heard the feedback from its membership regarding the Oscar presentation of four awards – Cinematography, Film Editing, Live Action Short, and Makeup and Hairstyling. All Academy Awards will be presented without edits, in our traditional format. We look forward to Oscar Sunday, February 24,” an Academy statement said.

    I am really glad they are bringing these categories back to the live show. Editing and Cinematography to me are so crucial to the direct experience of film making and I would argue on par with the directing, that it felt like a slap in the face to the industry to see that they were considering leaving them out.

    I also usually really enjoy the Makeup and Hairstyling award speech because the folks involved are oddballs and give some interesting speeches at least.

      The fact that they were even considering that just shows the awards are a bunch of bullshit. One only has to look at how they treat animated films to see that it's just completely biased.
