More on the Oscars
I should have entered this into my poll:
What about "The Passion of the Christ?"
Yes,...Mel Gibson's "Passion" was passed over by the Oscars. There are many prevailing reasons (not necessarily mine) why this occurred:
- Many studio honchos power brokers are Jewish and the rumored anti-Semitism in this movie turned them off or caused them to boycott its viewing.
- In the post-election Conservative climate, Michael Moore's "comedy" has all but disappeared. Snubbing "Passion" is Holleftywood's payback.
- Oddly enough, people thought it should be listed as a"foreign language film" because it was in Aramaic! (I s**t you not!)
- It isn't the usual dramatic dribble that makes it big these days. Gone are the days of movies like "Ben Hur" and "The Ten Commandments," when religion wasn't considered a bad word.
