Dark Horse

Time has come for me to make one bold prediction in this blog.

If Return of the King by some chance loses this year's Oscar, the most likely object of hatred for Tolkien fans is going to be Seabiscuit.

Lost in Translation is too "artsy", Mystic River is too depressive (and Eastwood has already won for Unforgiven), while Master and Commander is too boring even for the average Academy member.

I'm certain that anti-Tolkien vote is going to be concentrated on the uplifting family-oriented true story that praises American values.
