Froud - bad faeries

Oscars pick the losers

OK. In trying to make myself less irritated with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for totally overlooking the actors of LOTR this year (and last), I've reminded myself that they don't really matter. In fact, they almost never pick the picture I liked best, of the nominees. Let's review the last ten years for the Best Picture nominations. Winners are in italics; my choice is in boldface.Collapse )

So, yeah. In the last ten years, I've only approved of Oscar's choice for Best Picture once. 10% is a failing grade, Academy dearest. I officially no longer take you seriously.
