Seriously, look at the nominations for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Notice how Jim Carrey isn't there, even though he gave the best performance of his life in Man on the Moon? I am not saying he should win, but not even getting nominated has already disgusted a bunch of people, especially since he didn't get the award last year and most people basically feel that they don't take him seriously, which is true. They don't take him seriously. He's a comedian for life, now, branded by the "Academy." The same thing goes for the Best Movie catagory. Magnolia isn't even nominated, even though most honest and open-minded critics loved the film and know that's the movie that will be remembered years from now.
I bet, though, that the kid from The Sixth Sense will win; not because he deserved it, but because the Academy always gives awards to safe-best actors, actresses and movies. Who knows, maybe the young actor deserves it, but I bet he'll get it just because he's a kid and it'll make them look like a million bucks. The same thing goes for movies like The Green Mile, which even though was good, isn't as good as American Beauty, which will probably not win the award for best movie because the Academy can't go wrong with such a "powerful" film as The Green Mile, and everyone's favourite actor, Tom Hanks. Sure, I like Tom Hanks too, but, well, you get the point. :)
They need to make an award show that isn't full of stuck-up people who don't want to "tarnish" their image, but at the same time, need to make an award show that isn't like the MTV awards, which always goes with the pop music choices for best music, and the same thing goes in terms of movies. It's hard to take them too seriously as well, even though I agree with more of their decisions than the decisions from the Evil Academy of Doom. :P
We may be through with the past, but the past is not through with us.
