Chambler A computer without Microsoft is like a chocolate cake without mustard.
I wonder if that suicide bomber film will win anything after all those protests in Israel and the lobbying that has been done over the last couple of weeks.
Don't know how I managed to omit Good Night, and Good Luck from my post, thanks for reminding me. I rated it highly both as a damning indictment of today's media torpor and yesterday's media courage. The cool, monocrome directing evoked the era perfectly, and what a stroke of genius to have the sweaty, slurred demagogue play himself.
I was also glad to see George Clooney win. Loved his speech. Wish he had won for Good Night and Good Luck. Though I loved the movie for its subject, I really never thought a very quiet, serious, almost documentary style movie like that would best the competiion it had. Still, as they say, it was nice to be nominated.
