What kills me is the 100K gift bags the nominees get. Even if you don't get a little statue man you get a bag filled with lavish and exspensive gifts; last year there were fully paid trips, diamond jewelry and other pricy swag.
The real fucked up part is companies pay to have a product put in a bag, 4k or more, because nothing sells extravagant shit like celebrities that can afford gum rejuvenation sessions or month long retreats.

Didn't Paltrow get mocked a few years back for pushing some sort of cream that was a couple grand?

Counterpoint to people saying that being a host is pointless: It really launched Ricky Gervais in the country.
Counterpoint to that: Oscar's would never hire someone like Ricky in this political climate and, indeed, unofficially fired him because he was too mean.

I'm interested in which Avengers actors are going to be desperate enough to agree to participate in the Academy's mandated capeshit pandering.
I'm not sure what you mean by that, as the Oscars have been famously snubbing superhero films for almost two decades now. Also people who call it capeshit are dumb.

Gervais hosted the Golden Globes. Still, the Oscars got Seth McFarlane, so it's not like they're all that smart with their choices.

Except for this year, with Black Panther getting a Best Picture nomination. Disney has motivation to get the Avengers to support the nomination, even though Black Panther wasn't even the best MCU movie released last year, or even better than the one immediately before it.
