Petition to Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences

We want the Academy Awards to broadcast all 24 Oscars

On Monday, February 11th, it was announced that the Academy Award telecast would only broadcast 20 of the 24 awards; four of the awards would be given out during commercial breaks.The awards that will not be telecast are Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Make-Up and Best Live Action Short.This has been seen as a slap in the face to filmmakers all across the globe. Cinematography and editing in particular, are the essential steps to creating cinema. By the Academy's decision to not telecast these awards displays a disregard for for the very craft of which it celebrates.We strongly petition the Academy to find something else to broadcast during the commercial breaks. Although we hate to miss out on any of the show - the "in memoriam" segment, the montage(s), the clips highlight the sci-tech awards or the fodder among celebrities are not the quintessential elements of filmmaking - whereas bestowing the honors of cinematography and editing are. Before and during the broadcast, make-up artists will be hard at work prepping those who are going in front of the camera. For those who have directed short films, the process of making a smaller movie are the stepping stones to making movies.Since the failure of retaining your host this year - the removal of these awards adds insult to injury. We demand that ABC and The Academy find another way to shorten the broadcast.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ('90) Special Edition

One the finest movies I've seen as a child was the first live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie released in March 1990. Fans enjoyed it and it amazed me to see their favorite superheroes come to life on the big screen then watched it several times on VHS, DVD and Blu-ray. Since I saw it on DVD, I kinda went curious on the features it has and no others were made for it, so I'm making this petition to ask the company to make a special collector's edition of TMNT (90) with features fans like to see: Deleted/alternate/extended scenes Audio commentary with director Steve Barron Script to Screen Comparison TV spots Partners in Kryme "T-U-R-T-L-E Power" Music Video Hi Tek 3 f/ Ya Kid K "Spin That Wheel" Music Video Interviews with the cast & crew Behind the scenes footage Turtle Costume Tests Production Stills Remembering Jim Henson Lean, Green and On The Screen: A TMNT Retrospective featurette Misc. I know some fans like this movie better than the Michael Bay produced flicks, but who cares what they think? They're nice and this TMNT live-action flick from '90 is one of the best in my books. We all want that movie magic back in this decade, but we'll have to see it to believe it. From all I've learned, it does have elements from both the comics and the cartoon and I think it's very swell for fans like me or you no matter what they say or think around this decade. We all want to know how they've bring the Turtles to life in the first place whether in a special collector's edition, director's cut or extended cut of the movie anyway you'd like. Please sign this petition to get New Line/Warner Bros. to make this happen and we can't be disappointed as shellheads. Sign and share now, dudes and dudettes! #TMNT90
