If you are reading this, you’re not likely going to be attending the 2016 Oscars. In fact, only half of the 6,000 members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences will be there because Kodak Theatre has a seating capacity of 3,400.

Best Documentary Short – Body Team 12
Best Documentary Short – Last Day of Freedom
Writing/Origin Screenplay – Straight out of Compton

They dont need someone elses approval or definition. They can do that themselves.
