It's me, acangie, best known for being "The One Person in America Who Hasn't Seen Return of the King Yet." Anyway, congratulations on getting through your seventy-sixth run. It was really sweet of you to give Peter Jackson the time of his life. People say Return of the King was a wonderful film, and I believe them. The other two movies weren't exactly my cup of tea, but I do appreciate that they were very well made and that most other people really, really liked it.
However, I do have to say that it makes the awards quite boring to watch when one movie wins in every single category and, what's more, everyone already knows it's going to win in every single category. Yes, it's a masterpiece, but isn't eleven awards just a tad bit excessive? Couldn't you spread the wealth around, just a little? Throw us a suprise here and there? Acknowledge that it wasn't the only good movie that came out in 2003?
I also want to point out that you were spectacularly uncreative this year in the non-Lord of the Rings categories as well. Charlize Theron? Sean Penn? Renee Zellweger, Finding Nemo... Come on, now. Someone like me, who doesn't even follow awards shows that closely, shouldn't have been able to guess the winners for that many awards so early on.
Oscar, please. For your own good, stop slacking off like this. You have one year to get ready for your seventy-seventh run. Make it more interesting next time, or no one will care anymore. You don't want people to start preferring the Golden Globes awards, now, do you?
