I don't know how you all feel, but I feel cheated. I just got through watching the Academy Awards. There has been so much talk of how well-received Brokeback Mountain and Transamerica were. There was so much build-up. Everyone said Felicity Huffman was a shoe-in for Best Actress. Ang Lee did win for Best Director, but there was not much else to make these two entries stand out tonight. I know I am speaking from an emotional point of view, but I am rather disappointed. I just have a gut feeling that the Academy didn't want to deal with the gay stuff. It's like they paid lip service to these two films but couldn't follow through. Maybe I'm just sour grapes, but that's how I feel. Of course, I am looking at things through my eyes and what I would like to see in a more perfect world. I know the films created dialogues that might otherwise not have existed and brought these issues to the attention of millions of people. Please add your points of view - perhaps it might make me feel better.
