Now, this whole argument would be much easier if I thought the films nominated actually deserved their nominations. But that’s one of the many problems with the Academy. Can anyone remember a year where they honestly thought the five nominated pictures were actually the five best films of the year? But, that’s also why the DARK KNIGHT will sweep every category in the Golden Schmoes and films like MILK, THE READER, FROST/NIXON and others probably won’t receive a single vote.
