I’ve often said that the Oscars are given out too early. If you really want to know what movie is the Best Picture of a particular year, wait ten years and then hand out the awards. I’d bet most of the time you would get a different result.
2004, however, was the year The Return of the King won Best Picture and something tells me that we wouldn’t see too many people shouting for Peter Jackson to return his trophy. I wonder, though, how the movie would have been different if it had been about another King.
Not Elvis. I don’t know crap about Elvis.
