This year, I feel a little out of it when it comes to the Oscars. I’m deeply ambivalent to many of the major nominees (“Michael Clayton,” “There Will Be Blood” and “Atonement”) and the ones I really doÂ like (“No Country for Old Men” and “Juno”) are so dissimilar, it’s difficult to compare them â€” or figure how the Academy will compare them, either. So what’s gonna win? What deserves to?
Check out the print edition of the Dallas Voice this week to see my pix-versus-predix in the major categories, but tune into Lambda Weekly, KNON 89.3, at noon on Sunday to get my most up-to-the-minute, my-opinions-keep-changing guesses. I’ll definitely be watching the awards on Sunday night. I just don’t know what I’ll be thinking as the winners are announced.
