Steven Soderbergh explains exactly why they switched up the Oscars ending

The Academy Awards ending was a little different this year due to a decision by producers that had to do with late actor Chadwick Boseman.

As a reminder, producers had switched the order of the final awards of the night so best picture was announced before the lead acting categories. Boseman, nominated for lead actor for his role inMa Rainey’s Black Bottom,” 였다 highly favored to win. 대신, the Oscar went to Anthony Hopkins forThe Fatherbut he wasn’t in attendance and the show ended abruptly.
Director Steven Soderbergh, who was among producers of this year’s event, spoke to the 로스 앤젤레스 타임즈 about switching the categories.
    That was something we were going to do well before the nominations came outwe talked about that in January. It’s our beliefthat I think is not unfoundedthat actorsspeeches tend to be more dramatic than producers’ 연설. And so we thought it might be fun to mix it up, especially if people didn’t know that was coming,” 그는 말했다. “So that was always part of the plan. And then when the nominations came out and there was even the possibility that Chadwick could win posthumously, our feeling was if he were to win and his widow were to speak on his behalf, there would be nowhere to go after that. So we stuck with it.
      Soderbergh added thatif there was even the sliver of a chancethat Boseman would win andthat his widow would speak, then we were operating under the fact that was the end of the show.
        So it wasn’t like we assumed it would, but if there was even a possibility that it would happen, then you have to account for that. That would have been such a shattering moment, that to come back after that would have been just impossible,” 그는 말한다.
