La legitimidad de los Óscar

Dear Academy: Please Do Not Give Eddie Redmayne An Oscar Nomination:

Not that that makes the Golden Globes so much less legit than the Oscars. Which are voted on by the 5,000 members of the Academy, many of whom were famously too old to figure out online voting, and whose organization was itself actually founded by cynical studio heads on the idea that you could distract filmmakers from unionizing by feting them with trinkets and baubles. “If I got them cups and awards they’d kill themselves to produce what I wanted,” Machiavellian genius Louis B. Mayer famously remarked.
