I have to admit, I’m a little peeved at the lack of recognition The Passion of the Christ received from Oscar. Peeved, but not surprised. Oscar did have enough sense to recognize the incredible cinematography, musical score, and make up . . . but I’d like to know where the nominations for James Caviezel, Maia Morgenstern, and Monica Bellucci were? Not to mention Mel Gibson.
The only thing that makes it a little easier to take is that Fahrenheit 9/11 DID NOT RECEIVE ONE SINGLE NOMINATION. Take that, Michael Moore.

Frankly, I’m amazed that Passion got any nominations at all. Sure, it made $300,000,000 dollars. But it’s about Jesus Christ–and it’s got a positive message!
I haven’t taken the Oscars serious at any point. It’s a badge of honor, in a sense, to be snubbed by people like that…P.T. Ferriola: Sec. of State
Yes, that is a bit of solace. Really, Mel got what he wanted – publicity and success and a job very, very well-done. THe awards are nice, but…these days, they’re pretty meaningless!
I too and shocked and amazed that the Passion was nominated for anything at all, considering how all the psuedo intellectual liberal elitists condemned the movie and gave it poor to nominal reviews (yeah, it was only in the top 10 of highest grossing movies of all time). But then again, since when have the Oscars ever been about good movies? Most of the movies that receive awards I have never even heard of, and they are usually so obscure and bizarre that I wouldn’t want to waste my time or money seeing them anyway.
