Do you agree with the Academy’s past picks for Oscar?
Asked at Hy-Vee on March 23, 2002
“No, because most of the movies’ artistic merit is not very good. Most of the movies are big blockbusters, and the artistic merit of films are not looked at.”
“I have not yet agreed with the Academy. I guess my sense of judgment and theirs are on two different levels.”
“A lot of time I think they make decisions based on commercial hype than artistic merit, so I don’t pay attention to the awards.”
“Since I haven’t seen any of the movies nominated this year, I don’t know. I think the movies are good, but if there’s not a giant monster or a huge bug in it, I usually don’t see it.”
