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