] The Oscars this year were really pathetic, anyway. All these dumb movies (Jerry, Fargo) up for best pic! The year before was better. When Braveheart beat S+S I could actually see reasonable-ness in it. Aside from the fact that Mel (sigh, sigh) had to come up on stage again.
I`m sorry to disagree with you, but I thought last year`s Oscars were much more pathetic. Fargo is a very good sort of movie and TEP even more so. Fargo may be a whole lot of things, but it isnīt dumb and Iīm glad Frances MacDormand won for her role. She was realistic and endearing.
My only sorrw is that Brenda Blethyn couldn`t win it too. Secrets and Lies was one of the best films I`ve seen in a long time.
