Remember William Wallace!
13 January 2007 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Today, the people who run the Academy Awards are probably a little bit embarrassed that they gave Mel Gibson an Oscar, what with his anti-Semitic rant and all. I was never one of his fans to begin with, but I like that he reminded viewers not to forget the Wallace clan when he accepted his Oscar (I take special note of people mentioning the Wallace clan because I am a descendant of William Wallace).

Other than that, I was glad that Susan Sarandon finally won an Oscar; it was about time. I guess that Kevin Spacey's win for "The Usual Suspects" was a preview of his role in "American Beauty". I think that my favorite scene of the night was what Jim Carrey did with the "Toy Story" characters. I know that some people find Whoopi Goldberg obnoxious, but I like it when she hosts the Oscars.

All in all, "The 68th Annual Academy Awards" was a pretty good night. Although I think that "To Die For" and "Unstrung Heroes" both got completely snubbed.
