The Academy

by Brien Jackson

Despite having some pretty deep opinions about Oscar movies, I generally refrained from posting on the topic, mostly because I expect the Oscars to do really stupid things for no good reason. When The Wrestler, clearly the best movie of the year, wasn’t nominated for Best Picture and Kate Winslett was nominated for Best Actress in a role no one else considered to be a lead, I knew this was going to be one of those years.

But hey, once you’ve given Best Picture to Crash, you really have nowhere to go but up for quite some time.
