As if a Woody Allen is actually getting positive reviews from critics. Thought he was just on a downward spiral of no return filled with the likes of Lucas and Spielberg.

Hollywood awards are so exclusive.

They call themselves cosmopolitan, but their really closed-door elitists.

Notice how they award themselves, and themselves only, ignoring most of the rest of the world as if it doesn't exist, throwing foreign films into a category for them alone, as if no one anywhere else in the word, besides the US or Britain, ever makes a superior film.

I guess if it isn't made in American or Britain, it doesn't count. It's art, maybe, but not worth much to them.
