The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences MUST respect filmmakers and film fans

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced two extremely disrespectful and ugly decisions.
The first one is the inauguration of a best popular film award. This award will lessen the impact and the prestige of the Academy Award.
But this the lesser evil. The other decision is to bring the Oscar telecast down to three hours by cutting awards from the telecast. This move is absolutely disrespectful to filmmakers. In the future, actors will continue getting their awards and deliver long and self-important speeches while editors, composers, production designers, people whose contribution to the world of filmmaking is just as special, will be featured in montages. Their awards will be presented in commercial breaks. Just like a few years ago they got their awards in the audience and were not allowed to get on stage. Is this the message the Academy is sending? That they don't care about the people they represent.
John Bailey and Dawn Hudson should be ashamed of themselves. They are doing so much damage, it's ugly.
Filmmakers and lovers of film, let's keep the Oscars the way they are. Let's keep honoring filmmakers instead of turning the Oscars into a big joke.
