The Oscars are Coming Up
Here's my chance to tout my own horn. If you want to learn more about the upcoming Oscars then google thecolumnists.com where editor Ron Miller has a right-on column about his ace predictions.
And yours truly contributes something I've been working on for a long time: Oscar's 10 Biggest Mistakes.
It all started in 1932-33 when Oscar voters picked Cavalcade as Best Picture o ver King Kong! And all these year's later which picture has slipped into obscurity and which picture continues to entrance audiences to this day?
It winds up with last year's blooper: the very nice, undemanding The King's Speech winning as best picture over The Social Network, a huge mistake if ever there was one.
And editor Miller has a dandy second column on a new category he wants to instigate: Noirscars --the best thriller or murder mystery of years past and present.
