    This is quite misleading. The BBC website does have a section dedicated to the Oscars, but the website is flexible and you can move your preferred sections to the top or bottom. Obviously the Oscars section has been moved to the bottom in this screenshot! :)

    BBC, or as i call it "the oracle"... been in New York for 6 months almost now, and it`s still my go to for any news, anywhere.

    it`s like a talisman of truth and light in the midst of a celebri-swamp of pop-culture trash.

    god bless the BBC, the bastion of altruistic journalism!

    a serious point for once - and very nicely put... you know, if you didnt, there is significant debate going on at the moment in the UK about the BBC and it`s role in society (this will become a major discussion point in the upcoming UK general election in the next few months)... I read someone, commenting on the debate, that before you criticise the BBC you should spend at least one year living abroad without it (something I have done a few times)... and it is nice to see that it is appreciated abroad more than some do in the UK.

    The only reference to her on the BBC site are under Entertainment, referenced by third parties or court reporting (obviously libel cases). What`s your source for this?

    Well hold on now, the academy awards are an American event, so I would be surprised if the BBC covered them as much as an American news outlet. CNN and Fox both have one article each about the awards, and the rest of the news is "real" news. So what exactly is the problem?

    dreddloxx: dont be daft, who`s being led by the nose now? To think that an organisation, such as the BBC, can have an all encompassing ideology is just plain naive. Just look at who breaks most of the BBC scandal stories... its usually another part of the BBC! Iannucci said something absolutely wonderful about this a few weeks ago on something or other... unfortunately cannot rememebr the exact quote, but to think the BBC ever speaks with one singular voice, surely, is symptomatic of not actually listening to what is being said. I appreciate your thoughts could be levelled at certain programmes or presenters... but at the organisation? It just doesnt work like that.

    ummm.... i`m going to go out on a limb here and say that, pretty much by definition (sadly) all media is influenced and biased in one way or another, by any number of factors.

    My point is/was/remains; the BBC is considerably less prone to writing about Alec Baldwins vetinary bills, than say... any other website i would read.

    abover picture supports my claim. that`s why i wrote what i did!

    tvremote - the point is that instead of going with the important or shocking real-world events, Fox and CNN chose to headline with the results of the Annual Aren`t-We-Fabulous-athon.
    Who won what award is not, I would submit, more important than suicide bombings.

This is not mainstream news. I need to be informed of what is going on in real life, not this fantasy world of Hollywood narcicists.

    Fair point almightybob, but just to play the devils advocate for a minute, I wonder how many people in the UK or the US actually care about a suicide bomb in Pakistan. Its not exactly the first time this has happened.

    Also, if people want to read it, then it`s news, whether you think so or not. Blame the people, not CNN or Fox

    tvremote: "Also, if people want to read it, then it`s news, whether you think so or not" - no, its possibly editorial, an interest story or maybe even an advertisement.

    Potato, tomato, semantics.


    As for the interest in a suicide bomber in Pakistan - personally, I think a lot of people are interested, in both UK, US, Pakistan, India, Bulgaria, Bhutan and anywhere else that humanity exists. Maybe not you specifically, but someone will be interested. Who was interested in Haiti or Chile three months ago?

    i usually watch HLN in the mornings, cuz Robin delivers the news quite well. But Fox is a great news outlet. They actually are fair and report both sides of issues. Liberals really have no reason to hate them because they have a different outlook. Seriously hating FOX News because they have a different point of view? Liberals really don`t think things through, do they?

    In my personal opinion, I think it`s nice to sometimes see headlines that aren`t about the war or death, or some child molester on the run.

    We get this dreary, morbid news shoved down our throats every minute of every day, and sometimes it`s nice to read about something not related to death.

    The fact is that there are probably 2 camps. 1 is; news is whatever people (pay to) read. The papers just print what the readers want to hear... and sure, i buy that, there`s nowt wrong with appealing to the "masses".

    the second camp would be requiring a more intelligent (dare i say it) approach to world events. placing things such as killings, wars, economic crisis etc over pop culture and the like.

    if you want either one of these, there are plenty of papers that have it on offer. BUT, this I-A-B article proves the BBC is more the latter camp than the former, and, for my part, i think that rocks.

    I don`t think people hate Fox because of it`s "different view" as opposed to liberals, but more because they just tend to be ridiculous and stupid nine times out of ten.

    I was excited that she won, as the first female director.

    fknloser: i dislike FOX (Sky in the UK) because they clearly do have a centralised ideology that consistently biases their "news output". Liberal, Republican, Socialist or Anarchist, it simply matters not... what you want, more often than not, is a new story unfettered by personal opinion and time and time again the Fox network fails hopelessly, rudely and completely on this.

    How do you see through the bias, or do you merely willingly accept it?

    Actually the BBC homepage is customizable as shown in the picture, this person customized it to not have much entertainment on the homepage.

    Besides, the BBC has done a crazy amount of reporting on the completely unimportant Jon Venables case this week.

    greggpethers: agreed, and sorry to be all "middle-aged" about it... "grumpdock... how is the venables case unimportant?" - he wasnt even born then, and probably doesnt realise the level of national interest there is in the "story". Realistically, in the last 50 years, there have been maybe 4 or 5 vaguely comparably emotive crimes committed in the UK (Moors Murders, Yorkshire Ripper, Venables and Thompson, Whiting and Huntley - you could maybe add the Hungerford and Dunblane "incidents"), but due to the perpetrators and an extraordinary reaction from the public (apparently, though I am yet to personally discuss this with anyone that takes the tabloid view on it) the Bulger case is apparently far and away the most emotive.

    GrumpDock... maybe read it and understand it rather than get annoyed by it?

    I don`t get this at all - the Academy Awards are an American thing (they even have a "best foreign film" award!) so why would the BBC cover it? And yet, they do, it is the second story listed under "top stories" on the BBC site: "Oscar truimph for The Hurt Locker" it is right there!

    That`s rubbish, the BBC page is configurable. You can add or remove topics of interest, entertainment is just one of those topics. I`d love to take the superiority angle and say that we don`t have a celebritard culture in the UK but we do and, as a public service the BBC is obliged to cover all areas of public interest.

    And MotownC: As for this configurable thing, I did post about it earlier - yes, the BBC homepage is editable in so far as you can move things around... but the "Top Story" and "More Top Stories" are both viewable in the picture, and indeed the Hurt Locker story is there. This isnt a case of moving the Entertainment out of the way.

    The award of an oscar to Hurt Locker isnt a celebritard story either... just because there are actors in a movie and some actors are also celebrities doesnt mean this is a celebrity story. Is the award of the oscar to The Cove a celebrity story?

    LandoGriffin - where to start? the beeb covers it because it is news. Yes, the Academy Awards does havea foreign language category, however British films do not qualify because they are not in a foreign language - that`s why British film companies wins more than one (more than "that one") every now and then. British people are present in virtually all forms of media production which is also another reason why this is news and of interest. The point, I think, that was being made was that it did not lead (at that time) due to other more serious matters.

    FitzySpider: that is the leading story for "The Americas"... was there a bigger one, given that they have gotten through the night in one piece and have only just woken up? That same page (from the UK) now leads with a story about the freedom of the web, the continuing healthcare legislation and then the Oscars. The fourth story (for the Americas) being that an Argentinian film won the best foreign language film (which I think is the second story on your picture). So, basically, the US has now woken up and here is what`s going on...

    bhedgehog: I think you missed my point (or I didn`t make myself clear). By celebrity culture I am infering that society values stories involving celebrities above other potentially more important news items. The fact that the oscars gets more coverage than the Nobel prizes would seem to be a prime example of this. They are both awards ceremonies but the Nobel prizes are largely ignored.

    @GrumpDock: that we can actually agree on, to be fair. Like I said, to me it is merely a judicial procedure issue really. But it is not unimportant... it is actually extremely important... especially to Venables and seemingly to all those who wish to reek furious vengence on him. If you are interested in a sane perspective on it... watch last week`s Question Time and listen to Will Self`s comments ont he matter... you will probably find it on iPlayer.

    gchimmel: so why does it care about Pakistan then, thats not british? Or Nigeria, the next story down... or US, the next, or Iraq the next one? Or Beirut in the spotlight? I appreciate you`re only 13-17 but come on... you must realise that news comes from around the world and not just down the street.

    With 3 British actors nominated in the top acting categories (that`s 30%), let alone in the other categories... why wouldnt we be interested? It`s not like british film making hasnt ever won an oscar before... like, say, last year for example or any of the other years when British talent (whether as actor, director, writer, producer, dressmaker or whatever) has won something... you`d think only US films and those five nominated "foreign films" are the only films that ever get made!

    And surely that`s without, maybe, just maybe, just being interested in the results and the event... we`ve just had three weeks of Winter Olympic coverage and it was 30 odd years since the last Br

    Uhhh, the British equivalent of the Academy Awards aren`t front-page news here, either.

    So what? I`m a bit confused on why I should give a crap. I read the news I want to read from any source on the internet. I don`t buy newspapers so my exposure to trivial things aren`t missed. I read world news that matters. BTW, IAB seems to be worldly :)

    Bloody arrogant Yanks! Imagine, an American news network featuring a story about the American film industry awards for their American readers! Don`t they realize that there was a bombing in one of OUR former colonies?

    Yes OldOllie cause awards matter a lot more than people DYING, when people die it should make no difference where it is, it is still dead people

    You mean soccer stories under the heading of sport, a heading you can change to anything you want?


    ...Yeah, it`s a travesty.

    Arkenoid - I hope you`re been super sarcastic, or you`re replying to someone else.

    Because I think people are moaning about the award being shown over 11 people dying.

    People die all the time. People are murdered and tortured every day. Its just life. If they would rather report on the Academy Awards, go for it.

    american news sources are a joke, especially local newscasts, first 45 minutes its death, robbery and one story about corrupt politics, the last 15 min its sports and weather, BBC all the way at least they cover the world

    Yeah, I agree on the comment that American News is a total joke. They show the most unimportant or repetitive things on there, and often in such a bias manner as well. I actually try to catch BBC World News when I can on the public broadcasting channel, because it relays (important) News happening across the world.

    At the same time you can`t really blame them, they get the most ratings from showing what they show to us. n_n Oh well, thank God for BBC then.
