I get it. I once blew up my ex's car so she couldn't "swing by" my fantasy draft.

The Academy Awards Are a Ponzi Scheme!

I usually don't mess around with web cartoons, but the above Savage Chickens single-panel really hit home for me.

The Oscars are a classic Ponzi scheme!

In the first ever Academy Awards, there were 2 nominees for best actor, creating one winner and one loser.  The next year, there were 5 nominees, creating a second winner but now 5 total losers.

Almost every year since, 4 more losers have been added into the pool of "deserving losers."  Yes, many of those losers have since died or stopped acting, but the number of deserving losers still far outnumbers the number of new talent!

Look at this year for example: Of the 5 nominees for best actor, 3 of them have been nominated before.  Think of all the new, fresh-faced actors paying into this system just so those who have already been nominated can get renominated and finally have a chance to win!

It's a fraud, I tell you!  A fraud!  When will the bubble burst?!
