Some Oscar stuff. Of course, as this fellow realizes, it’s all over and has been for months.
“The only way I can lose the election,” Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards notoriously said in 1983, “is if I’m caught in bed with either a dead girl or a live boy.” Brokeback Mountain would have to go further to lose this year’s Academy Awards race for best picture, since the live boys is what set the movie apart at first and helped position it as the Oscar film to beat.
My biggest beef is that the best scores of the year were ignored in favor of nominating John Williams. Of course, he probably deserves it (haven’t seen the films), but he has been nominated dozens of times.
