The Oscars ain't the YMCA. This is supposed to be the tippy top as it relates to film competitions. Only now the Oscars want to play it nice. They want to make sure that everyone gets included. That everyone feels loved. It's obvious now that the Oscars are no longer about true craftsmanship and are all about the bottom line. Maybe I should have seen this coming. Maybe I shouldn't be surprised that the lush red curtain has finally been pulled aside to reveal this.
I would say that in the past few years, I've been hard-pressed to pick five pictures worthy of an award. And now there are going to be ten?
Let me give an early congratulations to Michael Bay for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen getting a Best Picture nod.
