After the 92nd Academy Awards, MCM concentrators at Brown expressed outrage at the Oscars for its lack of recognition for films with nonlinear and incomprehensible plots.
“Just looking at the list of nominations for ‘Best Director’ speaks volumes about the Academy,” said Noah Trapp, a junior MCM concentrator. “The one thing they all have in common is a clear vision for how their film would logically play out. It's truly reprehensible.”
“The nominees for ‘Best Actor’ are also so telling of the biases ingrained in Hollywood,” Trapp continued. “Every single one of those men play a character with a recognizable name and occupation. Unbelievable.”
“The Oscars represent the standard for excellence in film,” Trapp added. “Where’s the representation for people like me? Students studying modern culture who want to transcend rationality and enjoyment through completely baffling and unintelligible films.”
At press time, Trapp was seen editing his film “Chasing Jessica, the Ephemeral Goddess.”
