Is this supposed to be a golf blog?

Get real! Scorsese's long overdue Oscar was for Taxi Driver, Mean Streets, Raqing Bull, Goodfellas, etc... No insider in Hollywood would pretend that it was actually for The Departed...


Btw, what is Martin Scorsese's golf handicap?

I'd say his handicap is those big eyebrows. Hard to follow the ball in the air.

tiger is the the best golfer in the... golf and the academy awards? given some of the winners maybe this blog does make sense. scorsese deserved to get a oscar for raging bull and goodfellas. but the departed? a movie that looks like it ran out of money near the end. if you saw the ending you know exactly what i mean. congrats to scorsese on the oscar. you deserve it. just not for this film

S there anyway that MW is responsible for Martin Scorsese's win? That would really tick off Baldwin.

I'm sure Scorsese knows the real "score"---that he is a fine director deserving of an Academy Award, except that he won it for the wrong film. The ensemble cast was what made it a no-brainer though. I would have agreed on this if the film was made say, ten or twenty years ago---that would have been innovative cinema.
On Eastwood, I'm not saying he should've won, but he was immediately out of the running because of his two previous wins for the right films (Unforgiven, Million Dollar Baby). "Letters from Iwo Jima" is a much better directed film that the Departed, relatively speaking. But then, everything is relative with the Oscars.
