The last time the Oscars made me this mad was the Saving Private Ryan debacle. Started out so well too. Pan's Labyrinth won three early Oscars, Alan Arkin won for Little Miss Sunshine, and I was thinking hey, perhaps we'll get a Pan/Little Miss Sunshine sweep which, given the nominations, was as good as I could hope. Then Cars lost to Happy Feet. Then Pan's Laybrinth inexplicably lost Foreign Film. Then Departed won Director and Picture. Somewhere inbetween all that I punched my door really, really hard. See, I know I shouldn't care. I reeeeeeally shouldn't, but yet they piss me off every year. Last night was just....sigh. Last year was a fantastic year for movies and the best one got token awards, snubbed in its own showcase categories, and a heaping pile of crap won Best Picture. THIS is why I have psychotic breaks and make my own awards.
