ROLL 'EM ~
Daniel-Day Lewis had the most telling line during the Academy Awards, “I really don’t know how any of this happens,” which addresses just how I felt, that something as half-baked as Argo could have won Best Picture. But then The Artist won last year, and how many of you have returned to watch that film? Nice touch having Jack Nicholson step back and allow Michelle Obama on a large screen deliver to the Best Picture winner. It's always awarding to see a thoughtful artist win something: Ang Lee, Michael Haneke and a few others. But if the Academy was going to do one "tie", and they did, but for the wrong category, last night was the golden moment to present it to the youngest actor ever nominated Quvenzhane Wallis, and the oldest Emmanuelle Riva. Now wouldn't that of been something.
