There must be a reason I'm not in the Academy.



 

To review:

    “The Artist” won best picture, though I would have voted for “The Descendants.”

    Jean Dujardin won best actor (“The Artist”), though I would have voted for George Clooney (“The Desecendants”).

    Meryl Streep won best actress (“The Iron Lady,” haven’t seen it yet), though I would have voted for Viola Davis (“The Help”).

    Octavia Spencer won best supporting actress (“The Help”), though I would have voted for Bernice Bejo (“The Artist”) or maybe even Janet McTeer (“Albert Nobbs”).

    Christopher Plummer won best supporting actor (“Beginners,” didn’t see it), though I would have voted for Kenneth Branagh (“My Week with Marilyn”).

    But I totally called “The Shore” for best live-action short.

    Perhaps this is why the Academy doesn’t return my calls.
