Lighten Up, Oscar®!

Once again, members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have demonstrated their preference for drama over comedy and musicals. Even though the number of Best Picture nominees has been increased to ten instead of the usual five this year, the list announced yesterday does not include such high quality lighter fare as THE PROPOSAL, (500 DAYS OF SUMMER), It’S COMPLICATED and FANTASTIC MR. FOX or entertaining musicals like the terrific FAME remake, the impressive EVERY LITTLE STEP documentary and NINE, Rob Marshall’s stylistic adaptation of the award-winning Broadway show.

I, for one, am not amused.
