Here is a suprise. The one movie people went out to see - in droves - the one movie that brought a light of hope to movie theatres - the movie that was well directed and acted WAS NOT nomianted for an Oscar. Instead, another list of boring films no one has seen or will see or will hear of again. (last year Penn won for best actor I think but what the hell was he in? I cannt remember which is my point - who saw that movie?) So needless to state, I will not waste my time watching this hours and hours long crap show that is continually declining in the ratings - I wonder why? Hmm. Let me think about that one. Not that I planned to watch but I would have watched had Mels film been nominated for something. So to all you academy members - maybe you should actually SEE the films you are voting for...at least the trailer....maybe that will clue you in on the fact that the films you choose are junk hence the low revenue they generate. If you at least watched a film - you might be able to judge more clearly. This is why the Oscars is loosing viewers each year...the only thing worth watch is your clown suits. That is funny!
