Hi all, Joey here...with the back to back bloodsoaked wins of The Departed and No Country for Old Men, it seems that the trend for rejecting a film for being "too violent" is done. Likewise, the era of rewarding the "Oscar Movie" (Atonement probably fit the term best of late) seems to be dying as well. That being said...what is this all going to mean for the upcoming crop of films looking to head to the Kodak next year?
Should Stop-Loss just stop because it's a war/Iraq film?
Should Frost/Nixon freeze over because it's something built for the Academy to love?
Should Revolutionary Road cease its Revolutionary ways because it's a period piece that a short time ago would undoubtedly get Oscar all hot and bothered?
What do you guys (and gals) think? Are anti-Oscar movies the new Oscar movies?
