Hollywood Self-Love: Oscar Who?

Hollywood's Assault On Culture will Tank

Here's a prediction that I don't think is too much of a stretch: The Oscar ratings will be lousy. The ratings won't be as bad as they could have been since they have some new blood this time around in Jon Stewart, but they will still stink.

The lack of blockbusters this year, and the apparent requirement to promote alternative lifestyles, demonize the West, or otherwise thumb a metaphorical nose at American culture just to be nominated these days, has generate little positive buzz and even less revenue.

MSN has a list of 'ten reasons' to watch the Acadamy Awards. Notice none of them is "to see which popular movie that took America by storm wins Best Picture".
