Rubbed the Wrong Way
Yikes... Lot's of perturbing information going on out there. Most notably the nine finalists for the Foreign Film Academy Award nominations. Critical darlings and worldwide lauded films The Orphanage, Persepolis, and the Palme D'Or winner that comes out next week, 4 Weeks, 3 Months, 2 Days, are all missing from the list. Although I haven't seen any of the films in contention, I can't believe these three films are missing when they are on so many critics top ten lists and the Academy's choices are not. What gives? Looking at the synopsis of the films from the Academy's list, they seem to all hit recurring Oscar trends. What can you do? Makes me care even less about the retarded upcoming nominations. They might as well give the Academy Award now to Julie Christie and Atonement.
