reading nikki finke’s deadline hollywood about how this year’s might be the most boring ever. but in reality, perhaps that was last year’s and the year before that and the year before that.
out of all the films that have been nominated, perhaps one has been seen by more than half a dozen people. should we take our hats off to the academy for nominating obscure films?
the best part about finke’s deadline hollywood column is actually the comments section. the best one so far regarding the oscar’s sorry state is by anonymous: “Hollywood no longer has any actor/actress who qualifies as a star. All the men look like hoboes and the girls look like street walkers.”
although hugh jackman doesn’t remotely resemble a hobo. but brad pitt most certainly does. and angelina jolie as a streetwalker. anyone could imagine that.
