Why Watch The Oscars? We All Know How That Movie Will End!
You can almost predict who will win the Academy Rewards on Sunday. (They’re not MY predictions, mind you. I ain’t that smart). But this guy does makes sense..Richard Corliss in Time writes:
In Oscar voting, as in old Hollywood weepies, sentiment trumps sense,” Critics may have loved The Social Network, but not a single one of them is a voting member of the Academy—but plenty of Hollywood guild members are.”
So in other words, get ready for multiple awards for “The King’s Speech”. That’s one I did see, and thought it was phenomenal, so I won’t disagree on that score.
It’ll be “heart over head” this year, says Richard. And this is interesting. Paraphrasing Mr. Corliss … “In 1942, when How Green Was My Valley, a sentimental drama set in the UK was up for an Oscar, it beat out a little flick that you might have heard of…Citizen Kane..the story about a “wayward media mogull” Isn’t that telling? (man, I wish I was that inciteful)..
