Kill Me Now
My new column is up. It’s all about the Oscars. Here’s a quote:
As a dedicated cinephile and practicing homosexual, I am obsessed with the Academy Awards. When I was little, I wandered around the house with a photocopied list (from Time) of all the Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Actress nominees as my security blanket.
I don’t make any predictions in the column, because I think it’s pretty obvious who’s going to win. I agree with EW’s assessment: Baby, Foxx, Swank, Freeman, Blanchett, Eastwood. But what do the Bible readers think? It’s an almost tie between “Million Dollar Baby” and “The Aviator,” but my readers are savvy enough to know that “The Aviator” is all shine and no soul. And have no fear. A new poll is on the way.
