The Academy Awards is a highlight of Hollywood’s year. The live telecast is the ultimate spotlight of Hollywood with the most prestigious award show. There would be a lot of disappointment if the categories of the animated short and original scores were to be eliminated.
The Academy Awards has always had awards for Animated Short and Original Score, but there are rumors that these categories might be eliminated in 2020. This would not only disappoint many viewers but also make some people question if the category was relevant anymore.
