little review

Poem for Tuesday

Was led astray by a Minion last night and so did not get lots of things done that I wanted to.

Am annoyed for Peter Jackson and disgusted about the cinematography nominations but happy TTT is up for Best Picture nonetheless. I am of the mind that Lord of the Rings will be judged by Oscar after Return of the King, not before, and if it's overlooked, it will still be remembered long after everyone has forgotten who starred in A Beautiful Mind. Which is really fine with me. Last year I was angry not that Fellowship didn't win Best Picture but that Moulin Rouge was not taken seriously as a contender -- that was where I saw the competition.

And I mean, shit -- Gwyneth Paltrow and Marisa Tomei have Oscars while Glenn Close does not. These awards don't stand for anything meaningful.
