A Bitter Richard Linklater Fan
That's the only one I'll be looking at Oscar night. Well, that and Scorsese, I guess. OK..and An Inconvenient Truth--which is just such a beautiful thing.
But for the Best Picture category, having just seen Little Miss Sunshine this week, I pretty much think Oscar has lost all its hairline-thin credibility. I can't for the life of me figure out what would make that film get a nod. Was it much better in the theater with an audience?
"Oh, that's so funny everybody isn't it/they are pushing the van again."
I guess it all makes sense in some way--a joke of a movie contest honors a one-joke movie.
