Oscar Sweep

Well, the Oscars are over, and Peter Jackson’s Magnum Opus has garnered 11 wins, including the big pair of Best Director and Best Picture of the year.
It deserved it. I was concerned the Academy was going to anoint something much more “Academy-esque” like Mystic River.
As Dorothea points out, the winners for Foreign Language Film were relieved LOTR was not nominated in that category.
You know, maybe if they did a Sindarin language track (subtitle or spoken)for the DVD…it would give David some work…
(Hey, did you know the DVD for Galaxy Quest has a “Thermian language track” on it? Of course it would be a massive amount of work, but I bet people would buy a DVD of LOTR with it dubbed or subtitled in Middle Earth languages…)

One thought on “Oscar Sweep”

  1. You called the Best Actor category correctly! They went with the “safe choice” you thought they would — Sean Penn!
    Oh, and I do have the log of the Galren room rambling from the event — if you wanna see it, catch me tonight when I’m on the desktop at home.
