February 13, 2019

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) has confirmed that four Oscars presentations have been set for commercial breaks of the 91st awards ceremony.

Caitriona Balfe added her voice to the controversy via a series of tweets.The Irish actress, 39, began by retweeting Variety's article about the Academy's decision to present the Oscars for cinematography, film editing, makeup and hairstyling, and live-action short off-air, and writing: 'What the F@*k??'

Balfe went on: 'No one part of the endeavour is more important or more valuable than the rest. How could a film exist without a cinematographer???? And editor???? An academy that demeans such essential roles is one that obviously doesn’t Understand the film making process.'

'Every actor will tell you so much of how they build their character is through hair and make up. ALSO essential to the process.'

'And for the people who have slaved and sweated and broke their backs and bank balances to make short films that Are purely creative endeavours and very rarely will ever make money ... the prospect of getting an Oscar and people learning about you and your project is essential and been the springboard for countless careers.'
Balfe concluded: 'Everyone should have Their moment to shine ... if they deserve an Oscar they deserve their moment. It’s bullllll****!!!!'

Also Tuesday, Balfe took part in a Starz event at the 2019 Winter TCA Panel in Los Angeles.

She joined several other of the channel's leading actresses and series creators to talk about whether life on set is getting better in the #MeToo era. 

The panelists included her Outlander EP Maril Davis, Power's La La Anthony, and Vida stars Melissa Barrera and Mishel Prada.
