ART FOR ART SAKE
MONEY FOR GAWDSAKE 2
Another Oscarfest in the can. My favorite part is always listening to the writers acceptance speech "never giving up on your dream" yada-yada-yada ...
I know it's corny but it gets me everytime.The truth of the matter is that there are hundreds of awful writers making tons of money in Hollywood.
Have you ever noticed that the film that wins Best Picture is rarely the biggest moneymaker of that year.

Like most of you, I've seen all of the REDs and all of the Greens, and atleast 20 of the so-called Cheesy Stinkers.
I seem to watch more Movies at home now and don't have that shared experience with the audience because they are so f*#%@n rude and disruptive...
How about you? Do you get out to the Pictures anymore?
