* HarsherInHindsight: A bunch of young and upcoming Hollywood actors performed the "I Wanna Be An Oscar Winner" at the 1989 ceremony. Sadly, none of them won an Oscar to this day. But few of them did have successful careers in TV and theater and won Emmys (Chad Lowe and Ricki Lake), a Grammy (Blair Underwood) and a Tony (Savion Glover).



* InternetBackdraft: The 2015 and especially the 2016 ceremonies faced immense criticism for the lack of diverse (especially African-American) nominees. Eventually faced with a losing PR battle and severe public backlash, the Academy announced the implementation of policies designed to bring in more diverse voices.

** The show in general gets this from the animation community because of how the nominees are judged. As the years go by and more and more of the voting process for the Animation category is chosen, some viewers took the voters to task for either only watching the more popular Western movies or for ignoring the category altogether because [[AnimationAgeGhetto they just can't fathom watching a "kids' cartoon"]].

* PanderingToTheBase: After two years in a row in 2015 and 2016 where all twenty nominated actors were white, resulting in serious calls for non-white actors to boycott the awards entirely, the Academy board began a serious re-evaluation of their nominating process based around getting non-white creators an equal consideration. They also gave their full support to Chris Rock substantially re-writing his material as host to reference the controversy.

** ''Film/{{Spotlight}}'' was in anything but its title during the 2016 ceremony, as white it won Best Picture, all everyone was talking about was one Leonardo [=DiCaprio=] ''finally'' winning his first Oscar, the OutOfTheGhetto ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'' becoming the film with the most wins (with six), and to a lesser extent, Lady Gaga's performance.

** The ''In Memoriam'' montage, which features actors who have died that year, making a rare real life example of a ReallyDeadMontage. It doesn't it help that singers such as Queen Latifah, Esperanza Spalding, and Bette Midler have performed during or after the montage.

* {{Anvilicious}}: The general opinion about actors making sociopolitical speeches at the Academy podium. Though depending on the situation, it can also move into SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped. The 2016 broadcast finally embraces this, as a result of the diversity issue.
