This is a body that thought Dances with Wolves was better than GoodFellas, after all.
It does a good job of taking the pulse of Hollywood
I guess this is my thing. Why is it considered a good pulse when its so hit or miss? Especially as a whole.
I guess its getting worse but throughout time theyve shown they dont know what films hold up and what are the best of the year. Was it not obvious that Hitchcock was a genius at the time? Vertigo wasnt even nominated for best picture
Instead you got Gigi, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Auntie Mame, Separate Tables, The Defiant Ones.
Apparently Hoop Dreams was invisible because it didnt even get a best documentary
nomination. Instead you got Maya Lin: A Strong Clear Vision, Complaints of a Dutiful Daughter, D-Day Remembered, Freedom on My Mind, A Great Day in Harlem.
Steven Speilberg for Jaws? Who?
2001: A Space Odessey? CLEARLY, Oliver!, Funny Girl, The Lion in Winter, Rachel, Rachel, Romeo and Juliet are better.
God forbid a popcorn movie like The Dark Knight get nominated. Frost/Nixon, Milk and The Reader are what people are going to remember.
I know its east I guess to pick them apart like I do, but its every single year. Not just who wins, but even whats nominated, in the big categories. Stuff that a lot of times is pretty clear to the public, but not to the Academy.
