Goldie Hawn has been a prominent figure in Hollywood for over five decades. She has won an Oscar, been nominated multiple times, and has starred in numerous successful movies. In a recent interview, she was asked about her thoughts on the Oscars and why she thinks they are no longer ‘elegant.’ According to Hawn, the Oscars have become too ‘politicised,’ and this has affected the overall vibe of the event.

Hawn explained that the Oscars were once an elegant and glamorous affair that celebrated the art of cinema. The event was a chance for the film industry to come together and honour excellence in the field. However, in recent years, the Oscars have become more about politics than about the movies themselves. Hawn believes that this shift has affected the prestige and elegance of the event.

One of the ways in which the Oscars have become politicised is through the nominees and winners. Hawn pointed out that in recent years, the Academy has made a conscious effort to be more inclusive and diverse in their selections. While this is undoubtedly an admirable goal, Hawn thinks that it may have come at the expense of the quality of the nominations. She explained that sometimes, it seems like the Academy is more concerned with ticking boxes rather than honouring the best performances or films of the year.

Another way in which the Oscars have become more political is through the speeches. Hawn noted that in recent years, there has been a trend for winners to use their acceptance speeches as a platform for political or social issues. While Hawn doesn’t have any issue with people expressing their views, she thinks that it can sometimes overshadow the achievement being celebrated. Hawn said, “I think it’s wonderful to speak your mind and talk about what’s important to you. But sometimes, I think it can take away from the elegance and the glamour of the event.”

The Oscars have also become a platform for political protests. Hawn referenced the 2018 Oscars, where several attendees wore pins in support of the Time’s Up movement. She thinks that while it’s important to raise awareness about social issues, the Oscars may not be the place for it. She said, “I think there are other avenues for people to express their views. The Oscars should be about celebrating the art of cinema, not about political statements.”

Hawn’s comments have sparked a debate about the role of politics in the Oscars. Some people agree with her, arguing that the Oscars have become too political in recent years. They believe that the focus should be on the movies themselves, rather than on issues such as diversity or social justice. Others disagree, arguing that the Oscars have always been political, and that it’s important for the film industry to engage with social issues.

Regardless of where you fall on this debate, it’s clear that the Oscars have changed a lot over the years. While the event remains a celebration of the art of cinema, it has also become a platform for social and political issues. Whether this is a good or bad thing is up for debate, but it’s clear that the Oscars are no longer the elegant and glamorous affair that they once were.
