The article at USA Today also points out that The Dark Knight was snubbed for Best Picture totally leaving out that Doubt was REALLY snubbed for not winning a SINGLE award for their awesomeness. I think that's a far bigger disappointment than a movie that has a dead actor in it losing out. Heath Ledger should have lived so that mediocrity would have won out, because rest assured even though his acting deserved recognition had he lived it wouldn't have been so great to people. Sad, but oh so true.
This will be done at next year's award ceremony. I want to know how they are going to work this in with an award show that already lasts longer than driving behind an little old Asian woman on a one way street. Now they are going to have to give equal nod time to five more movies. That's going to make it so long that if you were bored before you'll just be more bored for a longer period of time. Hopefully people don't have better things to do with their time. I mean people might as well go to sleep and then wake up and learn who won on Yahoo! They'll watch it and put in the great highlights from the 5 hour tour.
I did not see any comments on time allotment and whether or not there would be more time for Thank You Speeches. I guess they are going to just tell you who won and hand the awards away via mail and the actors could then Twitter their thank-yous for the world over. There was, however, a sweet little comment about MAYBE a comedy could be nominated. Awww...could be. There is hope for laughs to beat out tears and over pulled heartstrings.
That Golden Nude Man causes so much drama.
