<sigh> Don't get me started  FEB 15 2000

<sigh> Don't get me started on the Oscar nominations. In a year that saw the finest crop of movies in a long, long time, the Academy chose to nominate the Sixth Sense for Best Picture. The Sixth Sense was a good movie, but it wasn't a great movie...it wasn't even close. It certainly wasn't up there with Magnolia, Being John Malkovich, Election, The Iron Giant, or even Eyes Wide Shut. And did I mention Magnolia? The Green Mile and The Cider House Rules, while both good movies, weren't amongst the best of the year either. Hopefully, one good thing out of all of this will be that American Beauty, a marvelous film, will easily but deservedly win the Best Picture award.
