1 SHEET MASTER

Full list of Oscars won:

BEST DIRECTOR (KATHRYN BIGELOW)

– What else was nominated?

Avatar – James Cameron
Precious – Lee Daniels
Up in the Air – Jason Reitman
Inglourious Basterds

– Which of the nominations have I seen and which have I not seen?

I saw the first and the last listed.

– Which deserved to win (first choice and runner-up)?

Two letters: QT.  To slightly misquote Samuel L. Jackson in Jackie Brown, “When you absolutely, positively need to blow away every filmmaker on the list, accept no substitutes.”

– How sane was the Academy when they handed this award over?

Ya know, I support giving a woman an Oscar like a support giving a man an Oscar.  But this “first” shouldn’t have happened at the 82nd Academy Awards.  Maybe six years earlier, with Sofia Coppola’s Lost in Translation, if not earlier?
