Shows, I write, because over the past decade I've actually become a bigger fan of the Independent Spirit Awards that air Saturday evening on the Independent Film Channel than the Oscars, but the Oscars are what everyone cares about on Sunday night.
Every article about the Oscars seem to be all about Who Will Win and/or Who Should Win. I get that, but since it's sort of random and really cannot be taken that seriously, I'd prefer to just concentrate on looking back at the year in cinema.
Because really, you know for whatever reason, the Oscars frequently get it wrong. Or do you forget when Raging Bull lost out to Ordinary People in April of 1981? Or Kevin Costner's Dancing With Wolves over Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas in 1991? Or Robert Altman's The Player not even being nominated for Best Picture in March of 1993?)
