The Academy sets new rule for winning speeches

The Academy has set a new rule for Oscar winners.

The annual Oscars Nominees Luncheon allows candidates from all categories to mingle before to the big night, and this year was no exception. Tom Cruise, the producer and actor of Top Gun: Maverick, was seen conversing with Malala Yousafzai, who is nominated as an executive producer for the documentary short Stranger at the Gate.

According to Clayton Davis, at the Oscar Nominees luncheon, The Academy president Janet Wang urges Oscar nominees to keep their winning speeches to 45 seconds.

“You’ve got to work with us, this is live television after all. Translation: keep it short, sweet and to the point, please.”

However, many does not agree with this new rule.
