America Goes to the Oscars


I’m not going to go off on a tirade of why the Oscars are a joke, because I’m watching them myself. Or, they’re on in the background.

But all night they’ve been doing short little film clip collages on a variety of subjects, one of them being “America.” One of the clips on Americana was, not surprisingly, that of Superman, literally, hovering over the planet Earth, looking down with a cold disdain that could only personify the new age “white (American) man’s burden.”

Needless to say, I really enjoyed the subltety.

UPDATE: All that being said, and all that joking aside, the acceptance speech by Forest Whitaker, an incredible actor in his own right, was exceptional. The very reason to pursue art in any form or at any level.
