Oscars: getting it wrong again
In shocking news, an Oscar committee likely made up of old, out-of-touch retirees has found that no Asian films were good enough in 2006 to make the Best Foreign Film shortlist. That Curse of the Golden Flower is missing from this list is a disgrace, but when it comes to the "secret" Academy committees (see also: Documentaries), I'm not at all surprised. Disgusted, but not surprised.
