The Academy redeems itself

Posted Mar 01, 2004 in Movies.

I watched the 76th Academy Awards from beginning to end last night - the first time I've done that. Billy Crystal was very funny indeed. After decades of passing over great cinematic achievements, the Academy has finally redeemed itself.

The Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King won all 11 of the Oscars it was nominated for, included the coveted Best Picture and Best Director awards. The trilogy was a magnificent accomplishment, and it would have been a travesty if that had been ignored. Previously, I have said that I thought Peter Jackson would be delivered an injustice, but I am happy that the Academy saw fit to prove me wrong.
