Peter Guber and Peter Bart, on today’s Sunday Morning Shootout, only two weeks late with an Oscar preview featuring Amy Ryan and Javier Bardem. Pretty speedy for these guys, since they’re approximately 10 years behind the curve in their concept of what the Oscars are and should be.
- “It doesn’t mean that the Oscars need to totally snub all pictures which don’t have artistic pretensions.” — Peter Bart
- “Even Norbit got a nomination, which I think is great. Too often the Academy ignores movies that aren’t good.” — Jon Stewart
Basically the same perspective — except Jon Stewart was joking. So many things about this clip leave me dumbfounded, I don’t know where to begin. Maybe you guys can get us started. Finale of The Wire Party will dominate my evening, but I’ll be back to pound this from several jaggedy angles in a bit. Meanwhile, snark amongst yourselves.
