I’m glad the Oscars are finally making themselves relevant.
The Academy Of Motion Picture Arts And Sciences announced today the introduction of a new Oscar category honoring the Truman Capote-themed feature film genre. “We are now able to honor excellence in the emerging field of Capote-inspired filmmaking,” said Academy president Sid Ganis referring to the new film Infamous, as well as such upcoming features as 20th Century Fox’s Truman, Paramount’s Truman Capote, Universal’s Truman Capote, Jr., DreamWorks’ animated Truman And The Big Black And White Ball, and Columbia’s road picture Harper & Tru. Warner Bros.’ Goin’ Capote.”
