Why the Oscars are a joke . . .



. . . because Phillip Glass's score for Notes on a Scandal got a nomination . . .

. . . but Almodóvar's Volver didn't - even though Penelope Cruz did, and Letters from Iwo Jima (a Best Picture nominee) is actually in a foreign language (figure that one out) . . .

. . . because Mark Wahlberg got a nomination(!) . . .

. . . but Richard Griffiths didn't.

And finally . . .

. . . because a film without a screenplay (Borat) was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Really, you can't make this stuff up.
