The American bullshit dream crap-- even if thinly disguised-- always wins the Oscar. Forrest Gump's message: even a retard can make it in America. Not fucking likely. But, still, the American Dream. Gladiator's message: individual fights, and wins glory. The American Dream. Titanic's message: lonely American on his way to seek the American Dream sinks... his memory lives on. The American Dream. Braveheart's message: Patriotism. The American Dream. I could go on and on... but, it should be obvious... The Oscars are about pumping up the American Dream.... America, the great country, where there are 26,000 murders each year, and more prisoners than the rest of the world combined (why would Shawshank win?)... Land of the Free... Land of Hyperbole and Bullshit.
