I've said it before, and I'll say again, Dave Pound....the two movies I wish to win the bulk of the Academy Awards this evening are Birdman and The Grand Budapest Hotel. I just re-watched both films (which I now own on Blu-Ray, ain't I special...) last night, and the double-viewing re-confirmed my own, brilliant statement: these two flicks rule hard. They're not only my two favorite movies of the year, but of the past TWO years. Yeah, I said it. And Michael Keaton better win Best Actor.....otherwise, I'm gonna Beetlejuice someone's ass. Oh, and if the excruciatingly dull, one-note gimmick, and ultimately, highly forgettable Boyhood somehow wins Best Picture, I'm blowing up Hollywood (i.e. shan't ever watch another Oscar's). That is all.
