How To Improve the Oscars Award Show
A few good ideas would be pits of fire, giant bear traps, and tiny pools with alligators and crocodiles. Then you don't even have judges select the winner, you just pick the nominees then the presenter yells "GO!" and everyone gets up from their seats and tries to be the first to grab the statue. At least then there's no controversy over who wins any award no matter the performances. If you lept over a crocodile and pit of boiling tar in a crazy ass dress that has caught fire, you deserved it.
Then the music they play when a speech has gone on to long can be replaced with an angry crocodile released onto the stage. I guarantee the show would never go over its allotted time ever again and it'd be a much more entertaining show for everyone watching at home.
