Eddie Murphy Walks Out

leave a comment »

I’m not surprised by an article I just read that says Eddie Murphy walked out of the Oscars after losing the Best Supporting Actor Award for Dreamgirls to Alan Arkin. I still remember watching Bill Murray trying to bolt after losing for Lost in Translation.

Honestly, is Eddie really that surprised? If you do a movie like Norbit right after doing one like Dreamgirls, I don’t think the Academy will look at that in a positive light. I saw this coming a mile away, and maybe it will alter Eddie Murphy’s film choices down the road….We’ll see.

The Oscars

leave a comment »

You know, I remember the day when I actually knew and/or had seen the movies that were up for Academy Awards…yeesh, even those three years in a row where Lord of the Rings films were nominated.  I guess there are a few oddball categories that movies I’ve enjoyed could win, but I think the Academy should reconsider or make a category for blockbuster movies….there’s so many possibilities, plus it would bring in a more diverse audience.  I’d totally watch if a movie like Superman Returns or Pirates of the Caribbean was up for a “Best Blockbuster” kind of award….they really do deserve the recognition.

We’ll see what happens tomorrow night!
