Oscar Producers Plan Fresh Approach

Jan 29, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The new producers of this year’s Academy Awards presentation, Laurence Marks and Bill Condon, are planning ways to make the Oscars must-see TV again, USA Today says. Part of the plan is to have fewer taped pieces and more room for surprises during the broadcast. “That tradition started a few years ago, when they tried to avoid mistakes,” Condon tells the paper. “But we have decided that mistakes are our friends. Out of more live segments will hopefully spring more spontaneity.”
