They can’t see the trees for the forest.
Or more bluntly, had the Academy Awards wanted to grant ‘its’ army an
Oscar without thinking twice about it?
People will call it a ‘work of art’, a ‘movie’, ‘without an ulterior
motive’ (yes I’ve already read it somewhere...) etc
On top of it all, was the great March 8th pet theme: “wow it’s
awesome, it’s the first women director to get an Oscar”
