My Oscar Rant
I never see most of the nominated movies, so I can't weigh in on who was or wasn't robbed. But I'm wicked annoyed at the trend of allotting Best Actor and Actress awards before a film even starts shooting, simply on the basis of casting. Daniel Day Lewis is going to play Abraham Lincoln? Oscar! Colin Firth is playing the king that stuttered? Oscar! Meryl Streep is playing Margaret Thatcher? Oscar!
