This Explains A Lot
In my 33 years of watching the Oscars®, I've never fully understood how certain films (*cough* CRASH) have prevailed over competition that was clearly more beloved. Now I know why.
In this Reuters article, the process for Academy Award members making nominations and choosing winners is outlined.
And unfortunately I have to say I liken it to our American Electoral College system of choosing a president = it doesn't seem totally fair.
What are your thoughts on the Academy's methods? Leave a comment and let me know.
