O.k., tonight is the annual oscar awards and I am not really impressed with any of the entries. Of course I have only seen ONE of the movies being nominated for "Best Picture" but from what I have read of them I'm not really impressed to go see any others. There is one caviat to what I just said, however. We are going to go see, "Sideways" this afternoon before the Oscar's tonight.
Personally I think that the Golden Globes is a better measure of great films (and the Cannes Film Festival or Sundance Film Festival). Especially since they include a "Best Comedy" award (Bill Murray should have one "Best Actor" last year at the Oscars for "Lost in Translation." I'm still "bent out of shape" angry about THAT one).
Every year it seems I am less and less impressed with the movies nominated for "Best Picture" at the Oscar's and I always want some little, independent movie to win. For example, this year I think the best movie is by far, "I Heart Huckabees." I don't even think it is nominated once--for anything.
The river keeps flowing I guess.
