And the award goes to

Sean Penn

If there's one thing that actor’s know… other than that there weren’t any WMDs… (weapons of mass destruction) it's that there is no such thing as best in acting.

Peters Oscar 1

Who should get the Oscar awards this year?

The answer is I do not know, I don’t know who the nominees are and if I did I don’t know what they stand for. I care less about it. Call me an ostrich or a marooned islander but this is the truth.

To many it is a dream.

The award was instituted in 1928, the first awards being given on May 16th 1929 at Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel’s Blossom Room. 2.809 statues have been presented since, every January.

The award known as Merit in Movie making stands a 13 ½ inches tall and weighs 8 ½ pounds in weight. The film real features five spokes signifying the first five original branches of the Academy, actors, directors, producers, technicians and writers. Though statuette has varied in size over the years it was standard to the current form in 1945, despite the fact that the statuette is true to the original form.

Humphrey Bogart had it right in 1951 when he said “the only way to find the best actor would be to let everybody play Hamlet and let the best man win.”

It’s infuriating when the Indian paparazzi go gaga over the so-called Indian winners of Oscar. “Slumdog millionaire” is not an Indian movie it could be a movie about India. But the very title is offensive.

To me nominating an Indian movie to Oscars in itself does not make sense. When movies are sent the movies chosen are to do with the British Raj or Indian poverty.
