The Oscars' influence and stature are not as big/impressive/grand/high as they used to be.

Keep in mind that "the Oscars" is in the plural, so the possessive form would be Oscars', just like "The boys' ball", "The girls' dolls", The mothers' questions", etc.
Q: what do you think about Oscar Wilde's novel the picture of Dorian Gray?
A: It is great. You should read it :)

Dorian Gray is a person of enormous potential who is corrupted by Lord Henry Wotton. Under Wotton's influence, Dorian Gray lives a life of depravity. However, the effects of his lifestyle are shown not on his face and body, but on that of a painting of him. Eventually the painting is destroyed, and Dorian's face and body show the awful ravages of his depraved lifestyle and he dies.

The point of the story is not that Dorian is sinful and gets his comeuppance. The point is that he is corrupted by the baleful influence of Lord Wotton. But for this, Dorian could have had a great life and realized his potential.

So the truly evil person is Lord Wotton, but nothing bad happens to him and he appears to have a great time.
