The Oscars’ attempt to be fresh and cool was roasted on Twitter

“Army of the Dead” won the first-ever #OscarsFanFavorite award at the 2022 Oscars on Sunday night, in a moment that incorporated a bit of “People’s Choice Awards” DNA into the usual procedure — but not without some viewer confusion.

The new “Fan Favorite” initiative is one of two categories introduced for the first time this year, as the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences tries to revive the show’s low ratings and… to try something new. (The other initiative is the #OscarsCheerMoment Category.)

But just to make things a bit more confusing, the #OscarsFanFavorite category isn’t recognized as an official Oscar award. She’s apparently just there to urge people to attend the awards show early and tune in when the winner is announced. Entrants voted for their favorite movie by tweeting their choice with the hashtag #OscarsFanFavorite, or by going to OscarsFanFavorite.com and making their selection.

Submissions closed earlier this month, and the Academy released its top 10 nominees via Twitter: “Army of the dead”, “Cinderella”, “Dune”, “Malignant”, “Minamata”, “The power of the dog”, “Sing 2”, “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, “Suicide Squad” and “Tick, Tick… Boom!

“Army of the Dead,” a heist movie set in the midst of a zombie outbreak, ended up winning. But all the confusion and anti-climactic buildup resulted in plenty of reactions (and roasting) on ​​Twitter, as one would expect:

The #OscarsCheerMoment didn’t fare much better:
