Oscar Doesn’t Laugh

Written by , Posted in General

It has long been known that the Academy does not recognize comedy, and this year’s nominations were no exception. With the exception of Julie and Julia, none of the Golden Globe comedy winners were nominated for an Academy Award. Some insiders hoped that movies like The Hangover and (500) days of Summer would be nominated. However, this does beg the question of what exactly is a comedy? Though The Hangover is certainly a comedy, what about Up in the Air? Does that count? Apparently not, as it’s a “tragi-comedy.” Sigh…it’s all so confusing.
