Chicago Clarification

An addendum to yesterdays post: I liked Chicago but think it's idiotic that it's nominated for as many Oscars as it is.

I mean, they sing and dance (and all that jazz) very well. But there isn't too much acting, which I understand is fairly important in order to win those golden little men. I guess they may count 'dancing in your lingergie' to be acting these days, but I'm a proponent of giving this a category of its own. In fact, I think we should start a petition.

while i have not seen it, i am surprised that it is up for *so* many oscars when it is simply a film adaptation of a musical.

i'd really like "the hours" to do a lot of winning.

What about "City of God". I thought that was a good movie. I just saw it the other day. I don't know if it is nominated for anything though.
