Oscars injustices and mistakes

Cary Grant
 Cary Grant Oscar
Every year, the Academy of motion pictures arts and sciences, aka Oscars, recognize the work of a few movie stars and filmmakers whose career and status changes forever pushing up as well and definitely the value of the  movies awarded that big night. Even though these coveted prizes are not directly rewarded regarding economical terms, the businesses and agreements that take place during that night within the parties and the proper ceremony could end the world hunger a couple of times in a row. What is more, all the professionals work really hard in order to obtain an Academy Award as they are very prestigious not only in the world of cinema also in the rest of arts.

OSCAR´S MISTAKES
Nevertheless,  we cannot still be living in a cloud cuckoo land nor take them into account too seriously or applaud its irrevocable decisions without hesitation. As a matter of fact, I am to tell of  some outstanding filmmakers and actors that because one reason or another they did not receive an award that was more tan deserved.

STANLEY KUBRICK Stanley Kubrick never won an important Oscar, he only received one for the best special effects. Some of his movies did receive a nomination but not much more, something incomprehensible seeing all he was able to produce. In fact, Kubrick could be the best filmmaker in cinema history.

ALFRED HITCHCOCK Alfred Hitchcock, one of the biggest geniuses in the history of cinema never won an Oscar, he received the Honorific and only 5 nominations when he made more than 50 movies, some of them deemed completely masterpieces.

ORSON WELLES Orson Welles did only receive one Oscar and in the minor category of best screenplay, something odd when he is the author, amongst others, of movies such as Citizen Kane of The Lady from Shanghai.  His excessive creative independence did not help him at all. Other important heavyweights as Charles Chaplin (2 Honorifics and one Oscar but on musical categories) Howard Hawks or Sidney Lumet did not achieve an award they should have received. Likewise, European filmmakers such as Robert Altman, Ingmar Bergman, Jean-Luc Godard or Federico Fellini did not receive a relevant Oscar. (However, we ought to point out that Fellini, Bergman and Kurosawa won one for their countries in the category of best foreign movie, important enough but slightly inferior to the biggest).

Oscars mistakes
 Oscars injustices and mistakes in the Academy Awards.

On many occasions,  the members of the Academy Awards are so evidently mistaken that let the cat out of the bag by giving strange Oscars in order to desperately try to fix their errors not matter how and make justice with the past hence no making an important movie star or filmmaker being left  without the statuette. This happened to Humphrey Bogart, after having not received an Oscar because of his magnificent performances in The Big Sleep or Casablanca, he did receive it for the debatable movie The Queen of Africa 6 years prior to passing away. John Wayne, one of the best actors that world cinema has ever seen, albeit dazzling in almost every movie he was therein and not winning any (it is rumoured that he was not forgiven for his open support to the Republican Party) received his only Oscar for True Grit when he was 63 years old and it was clear he was not going to star much more movies, it is incredible to realise that he was not even nominated when nobody but him was able to perform true Western characters  or strong cowboys. Most recently, the great Al Pacino won it for Scent of  a woman which role and movie are an embarrassment if you compare them to any performance of Al Pacino in the 70s. Yet, if we scrutinise the Oscar Martin Scorsese won for The Departed  we can suspect that it looks like as if they wanted to compensate his glorious past because even though The Departed is a good movie it cannot never be compared to the work of Marty in Casino of Raging Bull for instance.

                               Al Pacino Oscar
Al Pacino Oscar

Still, is much more worse what happened to 2 fabulous actors as Peter O´Toole and Cary Grant, stars both of legendary movies like Lawrence of Arabia or North by Northwest they had to be happy receiving the Academy Honorary Award. Another important actor who could have won it and subsequently received the Honorific was Kirk Douglas.

                   Peter O´Toole
Peter O´Toole Oscar

There are more particular cases of some personalities who could have won but the aforementioned are particularly embarrassing and striking indeed. As far as female movie stars are concerned, Lauren Bacall should have won a proper Academy Award too. When do you receive an Academy Honorary Award too late what must you do? Should you forget the affront and the humiliation received? Get mad at it therefore not accepting it to denounce such an injustice?  (Jean-Luc Godard, for instance, did not pick the Honorific saying he was too old but he was sadder to win it  rather than having never won one as Honorific Oscars are not real according to him) All this kind of prizes are somehowt in tatters sooner or later  o must compensate mistakes from the past. Indeed, the members of the Academy Awards know perfectly that is incomprehensible that some cinema geniuses as Stanley Kubrick have never won an important Oscar so that the Honorific is perfect to avoid a guilty conscience. For sure we will see more suspicious recognitions and some Honorific Oscars to a whole trajectory whose winners should have obtained some time before. By the way, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt or  Annette Benign are on their fifties. What will happen as a result? Will they win a strange Oscar like Al Pacino´s or will they receive one like Cary Grant´s?

New petroleum discovered as the North Pole is melting.

Whether you believe it is our fault or not, the truth is that the ice is thawing in the North Pole and we are living in a hotter planet than before. Nevertheless, there are people who do not care about... (at all) because of the discovery of huge amounts of oil that is hidden under the ice...

Indeed, United States, Russia and other countries  have made an arrangement as this oil reserves belong to them (according to its geographical situation) so that make sure nobody will claim a new oil exploitation. What is more, countries such as Greenland are to separate itself from Denmark as they are going to be rich owing to the precious black liquid.

Besides, China has also reached an arrangement with Iceland in order to explore and exploit some routes from this country to the North PoleOil and therefore money are important above all when the reserves of petroleum in Europe, Africa, and Middle East are running out

However, all that glitters is no gold as it will be very difficult and expensive to extract this new petrol because is a gruelling task to work on remote icy places but the result is worthwhile, in fact, Russia, United States, Finland and Greenland are going to be very powerful and rich in some time soon (even more). 

Furthermore, it is revealed that The United States of America is to become the biggest producer of oil in the world (read it on The Economist on January 2013) in less than decades due to new discoveries made in North American soil, as a result, USA will have a better future because it will no be dependent on foreign oil, they will cut its deficit (the highest of the entire world), will have revenues,  jobs will be made. Still, some poor nations will not have a strange war on their country...

In some decades time there will be important problems as far as petroleum is concerned so that these new routes to the North Pole due to climate change are relevant. Do you think the climate change is a fable or is it real?. Are we hooked on oil without a worthwhile reason? Our Governments do not start real polices because some are to obtain huge revenues with these new discoveries on the North Pole? What do you think? Comment, share and rate this post if you have enjoyed it.

Trance, película de Danny Boyle con Rosario Dawson

TRANCE. Danny Boyle y el ademán helado de la Reina de Inglaterra.
“La gente ha luchado y ha muerto en batallas para conseguir la igualdad entre ciudadanos y la libertad, no tengo ningún motivo ni ningún interés en considerarme diferente a los demás Danny Boyle.
Trance Rosario Dawson
El Señor Danny Boyle, que se atrevió a rechazar la más alta condecoración del Imperio Británico de manos de la Reina Isabel  de Inglaterra porque cree en la igualdad de clases, propone con una gran dirección una historia que nos introduce en las paradojas complejidades de la mente humana pero también en la sofisticada delincuencia en torno al arte y el amor como elemento explosivo, el problema no es sólo la complicación que estos temas atañen sino que se torna, al igual que para muchos es su renuncia a la condecoración,  en algo incomprensible. 

Rosario Dawson Trance
Rosario Dawson 
Vincent Cassel, Rosario Dawson y James McAvoy  son el triángulo que en el que se sustenta Trance. La buena noticia es que puede relanzar a la famosa aunque olvidada por el éxito cinematográfico Rosario Dawson, después de haber firmado películas más bien mediocres brilla aquí con luz propia. James McAvoy, un actor que particularmente no me gusta mucho y Vincent Cassel están a su merced literalmente, tanto en la ficción como interpretando.

Puede que incluso Danny Boyle lo sepa porque los dos actores que ya tenía contratados eran Michael Fassbender en vez de McAvoy y Colin Firth en lugar del marido de Mónica Bellucci.

Trance se desarrolla en Londres aunque iba a rodarse en Nueva York. La impecable firma  de Boyle se vislumbra a través del metraje pero la historia que tanto promete al principio se va enredando y complicando dejando muchas lagunas por el camino.

Vincent Casell es el líder de un grupo de matones vinculados al arte, McAvoy tiene la clave para el robo de un valioso Goya pero sufre amnesia y es Rosario Dawson la única que puede ayudar a solucionar el peliagudo tinglado debido a su vasto conocimiento en el campo de la hipnosis y el funcionamiento de la mente humana.

Rosario Dawson se involucra en un asunto turbio del que no quiere apartarse  y la mezcla de sexo (escena no apta para cualquier actriz de Hollywood) amor, romance, negocio, sangre y sobre todo aspectos artísticos de la pintura da como resultado un thriller que aunque puede engatusar al principio acaba por dejarte helado, contrariado y sin saber muy bien qué decir. Lo mismo le sucedió a la Reina de Inglaterra al leer el guion de Danny Boyle para la apertura de los Juegos Olímpicos de Londres pero sobre todo al comprobar que alguien rechazaba ser llamado Sir.


Rosario Dawson es la estrella indiscutible de Trance.

Jorge Cacho exhibits his collection Intuiciones in Tarazona (Zaragoza)

Cipoegato Tarazona

 Tarazona - Catedral (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
The soiree seemed great, you handed a glass of champagne, some grapes were ready to be eaten as you were celebrating the New Year´s Eve in Spain. You had dined with your family and you were going to celebrate such an important date with your best friends. Enthusiasm on the television presenters, last messages from people you could not meet that night, jubilation on the people walking along the streets... Of course, you do remember it very well, the night of New Year´s Eve was wonderful, whilst the bells were tolling and you were eating a last grape you said to yourself-This is it, this is to be the year!!-


Regrettably, soon henceforth you did come back to your job position that is poorly paid, to waking up early, the hurries, the unfairly demands and exigencies, the disdain and contempt of  your bosses, the falseness and mendacity of your colleagues. Moreover,  your economy does not work really well, let alone that of the country in which you trust your retirement and savings. The continent where you live is losing all the greatness that historically owned and you know your future is nothing but gloomy. What is more, the alternatives do not seem right as beggary playing a cheap instrument in a busy street or incapacity are even worse.



Was New Year´s Eve an illusion? Did you really cheat on yourself badly and had you been cheated on the last day of December? Does it make sense to celebrate a tradition that obliges you to live in a agreeable fantasy to wake up thereafter with despair as  discovering what  the reality looks like?  Is it really worthy? 


Of course is, the harsher and tiring the journey is, the biggest reward will you obtain,   even though the path is full of tramps and challenges the few yet gratifying moments are so pleasant that allow you to be back on the road with even more strength overtaking obstacles and achieving your goals. Amongst these brilliant moments, the Intuiciones collection that  painter Jorge Cacho has made is found. That exhibition is available in the historical city of Tarazona, in the province of Zaragoza (Spain) close to El Moncayo.


Just after a brief but intense meeting in the matchless Paradise Bar (Bar Paraíso) of Tarazona, the Turiasonense artist was convinced and hopeful to show everybody his collection and "Be able to make the day of all the people that humbly try to escape from our harsh situation" subsequently, Jorge Cacho added "I am not looking for a monetary refund, what I want   is to create beautiful art conveying it to the public efficiently".
Tarazona

Little did one confront itself with authors so open, gentle and nice in a world where selfishness and haughtiness are something we are accustomed to. If you are near Tarazona and La Comarca del Moncayo do not doubt about visiting these paintings and walk throughout the streets of this beauty Aragonese city in order to taste and enjoy one of those few yet comforting moments that these awful times are still able to provide.

Marisa Tomei´s Oscar.

Marisa Tomei´s Oscar
Marisa Tomei  (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
The excruciating rumour about Marisa Tomei because of her Oscar-winning movie My cousin Vinny. The rumour about the Academy Award that Marisa Tomei obtained is excruciating but perhaps is even more painful to actually see the performances of Joe Pesci in such  fabulous movies as Raging Bull, Goodfellas or Casino and subsequently watching him on the movie My Cousin Vinny.


MARISA TOMEI 
I have always heard the story that tells of the man ( actor Jack Palance) who was in charge of presenting the Academy Award for the best supporting actress on the edition of 1992 that said  Marisa Tomei by mistake because he was heavily drunk, instead, he should have pronounced the name of Vanessa Redgrave, something that would be a scandal and has never been proved indeed. Even in one of my favourite television programmes, Family Guy, the matchless and extrem

ely cultivated in cultural terms Brian Griffin says: "I am capable of the most incredible miracles"  and then we see the images of Marisa Tomei winning the Oscar.
                                              Marisa Tomei´s Oscar
                                        Marisa Tomei and her Oscar

Talking of the movie, I want to clarify that nobody should believe the given statement that says My Cousin Vinny is a pure reflection of the American Judicial System, The RainMaker directed by Francis Ford Coppola and starred by Matt Damon does. My cousin Vinny is a minor comedy with the only interesting aspect to discover if that cursed Academy Award ended up in Marisa Tomei´s hands fairly.

My cousin Vinny is a boring flick, intended to be funny but it is not at all.
   
Marisa Tomei´s Oscar
Marisa Tomei and Brian Griffin
Jack Palance is believed to be drunk while announcing Marisa Tomei´s Oscar.
Marisa Tomei´s Oscar

Even though is quite true that the other nominees were good actresses and My Cousin Vinny is a  middling movie, it is far too vile to doubt of the talent of Marisa Tomei, in fact, if she cannot have that award why then she did receive an Oscar nomination that year, in 2001 and 2008?. I do not believe an actress can obtain three nominations accidentally!! 
Marisa Tomei is an excellent actress that has proven her talent in many movies, this is more real than the proper spectacle of the Academy Awards, it is assumed that a nomination is a winning already because getting the Oscar depends on many variables if not, you only have to scrutinise what happens to Harvey Weinstein, actor, actress, director or movie he supports.... 

In 2010 he decided to favour The King´s Speech when The Social Network was going to be the winner (as it had happened before at Golden Globes Awards and Baftas) However, the unfairness everybody knows did take place. 

Does Marisa Tomei deserve to be the Best supporting actress for My cousin Vinny? I have not seen the other performances nor the other movies nominated. Did Penélope Cruz deserve to win an Oscar with Vicky Cristina Barcelona? (that year Marisa Tomei did receive a nomination because of The Fighter) Did Shakespeare in love deserve to be the best movie of the year 1998?.
                      
Marisa Tomei received an Oscar nomination for her performance on The Fighter, directed by Darren Aranofsky and starred by Mickey Rourke

I strongly hope the main protagonist of this post can read this piece of writing and the reader will never see My cousin Vinny (the latest is said seriously). 

By the way, Penélope Cruz and Shakespeare in love were introduced and backed in Hollywood by Harvey Weinstein and if you decide to bet on the Oscars make sure you know who and which movies Harvey Weinstein uphold. Does Marisa Tomei deserve to have an Academy Award as best Supporting actress? OF COURSE!!!  (unless Harvey Weinstein said otherwise...)
