Re: [mythsoc] Woo Hoo A Clean Sweep!!!!!!
- I wish it were "only a movie." Unfortunately, all too many people now think
it is the work of Tolkien and don't know the difference, which is tragic. >>
People are idiots. Or they are learning. I have found active ignorance to
be a good path to interesting places. It's better than complete ignorance.
And being quite the project doesn't mean it's any good or worth any
Obviously the awards people think otherwise.

- THe other songs in the category were not anywhere near as well known as Into
the West. I personally liked the song well enough, but The Oscars have done
this in the past, I mean picking a song ahead of time. I remember people
saying when the film came out that it was a contender for best song, I don't
recall that being said for any of the other nomines, just like with Chicago

What I found amazing was that it won best song -- it was the most boring,
forgettable, poorly performed song. There's no way it deserved best song!
Allison Krauss was great with the two songs from "Cold Mountain" and I
really like the snappy tune from the animated short, "Triplets from
Belleville." It was cute to see Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara be
& Mickey" from "A Mighty Wind" again, but that wasn't such a good song
either, I thought -- although it was still better than "Into the West"!
