Polarity Contest

The Oscars want to give blockbuster hits a new award for Achievement in Popular Film. But does it make the problem it's meant to solve even worse?

Welcome back to the place I first found you! Congratulations!
Looking forward to some new Comics Are Weird pieces sometime in the future!

(Kudos to whomever included some moderation rules to agree to before posting. Good call.)

Yayyy, finally some reason to visit this site again. As much as I love Zero Punctuation, it alone was not enough to make it worth coming back here.

Slipping back into the show like an old pair of jeans that still fit just right.

Well I did always like this show, good to have it back.

As for the topic at hand, they could just drop all pretense and stop pretending the Oscars actually mean anything.

Whatever, just wash your hands.
Comebacks are indeed weird. Welcome back.

I kinda agree with what Bob is saying. I still remember when Best Animated Film became an Oscar, because that pretty much guaranteed that animated films were stuck as being seen as nothing more than "kiddy" stuff.

If only Beauty and the Beast had won that Oscar for Best Picture...

Congrats on the return. Great episode. It feels right to see you back and be back myself.

I guess that may depend on his contract with Geek.com. I rather like his movie reviews generally (though I personally prefer the prior style which utilized clips rather than speaking at a camera, but YouTube's MDCA screen killed that, so it's been balanced out with quantity so we get to see some lesser-known gems, including things like TV one-shot documentaries that are particularly topical), so I'll watch them wherever they end up.

Its great to see The Big Picture back on Escapist. Not just because its more content after years and years of less or not much content. Not just because its a giant middle finger to the worst users here. Not just because its genuinely great content. But well... well for those reasons. Welcome back Bob.

I like Bob's content, so long as he's not telling me I should be genocided for not worshiping his progressive idols, I'll be happy to listen to this.

Joining the chorus here: welcome back!
I?ve been watching a lot of your stuff on YouTube, but it?s great to see you back here. The Big Picture was always one of my favourites.
