8. Hollywood always likes to give awards to old actors
not saying Arkin is not a great actor, he is. But Hollywood always does this - Michael Caine, Sean Connery, James Coburn, Morgan Freeman all received the Best Supporting Actor aware when they were in their 60's or 70's.

5. I agree....that really sucks. Little Miss Overrated Shine wasn't that
great. I'm disappointed in that decision by the academy.

49. Saw West Bank Story on Link TV a couple of months ago...
That was a pretty cool musical takeoff of West Side Story set in the West Bank with Palestinians and Israelis in the roles of the Jets and the Sharks. Glad it won! Another good win for our side in this awards fest!
