Quotes

Himself - Winner: Best Live Action Short Film: I thought we were going to get a little short one. We'd like to thank the Academy for this wonderful honor in a category that still allows for a person who is just burning to make a movie to load the camera in the back of his daddy's old truck, gather up some talented dreamers and do it. And if the stars align and the fates conspire that person might find themselves standing right here at the good God Almighty Academy Awards. I want to thank everybody who helped us on our film, especially my ...

It was okay
10 June 2002 | by (Plantation, Florida) – See all my reviews

There were so many films left out this year (not surprisingly, considering it happens every year. The Academy must be blind, deaf, dumb, and stupid), but it was still fun to watch. I was shocked to see the high and mighty academy actually give awards to people who deserved them (Halle Berry and Denzel Washington),at least out of their nominees, of course, they didn't give nominations to people who deserved them. Here's my I deal Nominations (my winners in caps): PICTURE: Monster's Ball, Ghost World, MEMENTO, Life As A House, Bridget Jones Diary ACTOR: Denzel Washington(Training Day), Kevin Kline(Life As A House), Russell Crowe(A Beautiful Mind), GUY PEARCE(Memento), Brad Renfro(Bully) ACTRESS: Halle Berry(Monster's Ball), THORA BIRCH(Ghost World),NICOLE KIDMAN(Moulin Rouge)-tie, Renee Zellwegger(Bridget Jones Diary), Tilda Swinton(The Deep End) SUPPORTING ACTOR: HAYDEN CHRISTENSEN(Life As A House), STEVE BUSCEMI(Ghost World)-tie, Jim Broadbent(Moulin Rouge), John Leguizamo(Moulin Rouge) SUPPORTING ACTRESS: SCARLETT JOHANSEN(Ghost World), KRISTIN SCOTT THOMAS(Life As A House)-another tie, Jena Malone(Life As A House), Jennifer Connelly(A Beautiful Mind). Other than the fact that the academy has its head up its ass, the awards were almost enjoyable too watch, Halle Berry's acceptance speech didn't allow anyone to have a dry eye, and everybody had to appreciate the homage to black people that ran through the whole night. Overall, could have been better, but still enjoyable.
