It's my hopes that if Ben goes on to win the Director's Guild Award on February 2nd, and if he does, this will be the first time in modern Hollywood history that an award season's most winning-est director will not have been nominated for an Oscar. So will Hollywood finally come to realize that there are other voting bodies of similar prestige and credibility that has a better gauge of the industry than the Oscars? I hope so because each year it is becoming more and more clear to me that the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences are out of touch with performances, and artistic direction/creation, and has lost some of its relevance, validity, luster, and credibility quite a while ago. I thought last year's snub of a great actor took the cake, but this year, for such a well-known mainstream young actor/director to be snubbed for a critically acclaimed film, is a travesty.
