The Oscar Quest: Reconsidered (Best Actress, 1977-1978)

The Oscar Quest began in May of 2010. I finished about fifteen months later, and wrote it up for this site. That was essentially the first thing I did on here. Five years have passed since then. I’ve grown as a person. My tastes have changed, matured (or gotten more immature, in some cases). So it feels fitting, on the five year anniversary of the site and of the Oscar Quest, to revisit it.

I want to see just how my opinions about things have changed over the past five years. I didn’t do any particular work or catch-up for this. I didn’t go back and watch all the movies again. Some I went back to see naturally, others I haven’t watched in five years. I really just want to go back and rewrite the whole thing as a more mature person, less concerned with making points about certain categories and films than with just analyzing the whole thing as objectively as I can to give people who are interested as much information as possible.

This is the more mature version of the Oscar Quest. Updated, more in-depth, as objective as possible, less hostile. You can still read the old articles, but know that those are of a certain time, and these represent the present. (more…)


Pic of the Day: ♫ “Baby, look at me / And tell me what you see / You ain’t seen the best of me yet / Give me time, I’ll make you forget the rest / I’ve got more in me / And you can set it free / I can catch the moon in my hand / Don’t you know who I am? / Remember my name / (Fame) / I’m gonna live forever / I’m gonna learn how to fly / (High) / I feel it coming together / People will see me and cry / (Fame) / I’m gonna make it to heaven / Light up the sky like a flame / (Fame) / I’m gonna live forever / Baby, remember my name.” ♫
