Personal Quote:

Politics do affect the Academy. The producers of Life Is Beautiful (1997) had the support of a much bigger studio machine and at the same time Benigni would host private dinners: Elizabeth Taylor, come and meet Roberto Benigni... you know. And the studio throws a lot of money around promoting him. That sounds like sour grapes, but it's not. It's just the way it is. See more »
