You've made the big time!

Hope you like The Descendants a lot more than I am. Saw the first ca. 30 minutes more than three weeks ago, and really haven't felt the need to watch more.


Anyone who needs an Oscar or a nomination for same as validation for what they did and didn't like in a movie is just sad. For me, "The Artist" is the best movie of the year (of many a year, in fact). My opinion will not change if it does or doesn't win the Oscar. I think Kristen Wiig is a steaming pile of untalent. Her Oscar nomination doesn't change that opinion, either.

It's a popularity contest among a group of 5,000 people who have little contact with the rest of the world and who think that if a movie made a billion dollars, it's good and if it made a buck ninety-eight, it's crap, regardless of reality.
