I remember being annoyed back when Marion Cotillard won Best Actress, thinking that the stupid farking Academy was being pretentious and just giving awards to foreigners for the sake of being worldly.

Then I actually watched a few movies with Cotillard, and realized she's a phenomenal actress. We're blessed that the movie world is getting more and more internationalized. More and more talent = more adn more art.

American culture is becoming more international, and international culture is becoming more American in large part due to Hollywood. It's popular (especially in other countries) to pretend that that means we're diluting and cheapening their cultures, but the truth is that we're enriching them (in both senses) and being enriched in return. A Kenyan actress who gets an Oscar-winning role in an American film has achieved a reputation everywhere in the world, not just in the US and Kenya.

They give more entertaining speeches. Case in point: Alfonso Cuarón.

Boojum2k: I'm just happy Frozen won both of its awards

Boooo. Alan Menken was sorely missed from Frozen. I don't understand the love for an ersatz Tangled.
