Dear Academy, Please don’t forget…

Dear Academy, Please don't forget...

The ballots used by AMPAS members to select the nominees for the annual Oscars are in their hands now…due back to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in about ten days. While “Sideways,” “Million Dollar Baby,” and “The Aviator” are the safe bets for a best picture nod, what about those other two spots?

Here’s hoping that the Academy won’t overlook two terrific films that have been a hit with crtiics and were among the top films chosen in our survey of indie insiders: “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and “Before Sunset”.

And while I’m at it there are two other films that I think deserve to be named somehow on January 25th, when the nominations are announced: “Maria Full of Grace” and “Bad Education”.
