Why so mad as hell and unwilling to take it anymore?

Was the guy in Weekend at Bernies the last one that had a shot at it?

You don't HAVE to be dead, although you need to be dead at the time of the performance. But there's nothing to say you can't accept your Oscar in person, should you win. Might freak the presenter out, though.

Peter Finch was awesome. Heath ledger turned in a good performance but if he DOES win the Oscar it will be because of the sympathy vote NOT because he turned in as mesmerizing performance as Peter Finch. Network was a movie that was two things at once. While totally of its time it also accurately predicted where the news media would be thirty years later!
