Innovation is rewarded


How seldom does the Academy reward the most innovative? Reward a film that took in something like 40 million at the domestic box office? Not too often, and I'll say the preverbal bravo!

Seriously, if innovation is rewarded in our profession of cinema, instead of what makes the most money, don't you think this will encourage more innovation to come? Sure it will. The Oscars is a big, shining ball of sun , and if it gives its sunshine to smaller, more innovative films, the up and coming filmmakers will want some of that sunshine as well. Like little green plants bending towards the light.

BIRDMAN is filled with light. With a creative force. Let's hope we see more.
