Oscars Will Go On, One Way or Another

The good news: There will be an Oscar ceremony despite the writers' strike.

The bad news: Nobody's saying what the ceremony would look like if nominees refuse to cross picket lines to get there.

Regardless, it's a little reassuring to know the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is already working on a contingency plan in case the strike forces the Oscars to change course. Hopefully, that will mean Hollywood's biggest night doesn't turn into a slapped-together press conference a la the Golden Globes.

Oscar producer Gil Cates hasn't revealed much about what could happen in the alternative broadcast, other than saying that sets are being built at the Kodak Theater regardless. But Variety speculates that "the alternative show would rely on industry heavyweights penning their own speeches and presenting the awards" — though whether anyone would be there to receive them is anyone's guess.

So, at least we'll have something. But the only way to make sure the Oscars go on the way we're used to seeing them is for the writers and producers to strike a deal — and soon. Maybe the Directors Guild will strike a deal and help get the writers and producers talking again.
