As for the Academy Awards Passion snub in a meaningful category, I really don’t care. I can’t remember the last time I watched the Academy Awards or went to a film because it won best picture. Though the Passion did receive 2 to 3 more awards then I expected.
- Original score
Like many conservative pundits though I was overjoyed to hear that Michael Moore’s "Fahrenheit 9/11" received exactly zero nominations. To be fair though his film should have been nominated for best "Make up."
Nominated for a Documentary Short Subject was "Sister Rose’s Passion"
Sister Rose’s Passion, with Run time of 38 minutes 49 second, describes the largely thankless, often resisted lifelong crusade by a Catholic nun — Sister Rose Thering – to challenge the doctrine that blamed the Jews for the death of Jesus. She played a key role in Vatican II, which officially changed the church’s position on their relationship with the Jewish people. This documentary follows Sister Rose, today, at age 84, as she continues to fight against religious intolerance.
Director Oren Jacoby next movie sounds absolutely dreadful and I am sure will fulfill the maxim "garbage in, garbage out."
Jacoby said his current project is based on the book "Constantine’s Sword" by James Carroll, "the moving story of one Christian’s odyssey of discovery – of his own and his Church’s complicity in history’s most lethal hatred. A saga crossing 20 centuries and the length of one man’s life."
Update: Barbara Nicolosi paraphrases this years Oscar picks:
So, this year, the top Oscar nominations have gone to…
…a movie that makes a hero out of a man who murders his adopted daughter.
…a movie that makes a hero out of an abortionist.
…a movie that makes a hero out of a discredited researcher who was obsessed with sex and encouraged many others to experiment with various perversions.
…a movie that lionizes a billionaire narcissist who died insane from syphilis.
…a movie that suggests it is funny when an engaged man sets off for a week of debauchery before his marriage with his drunkard best friend.
…a movie that glamorizes four alley cats dressed as beautiful people who fornicate and commit adultery with each other, and indulge in various sexual perversions until the movie ends.
…a movie that makes a hero out of a paraplegic in despair who wants to kill himself.
