The Greatest Oscar Injustice

You want to talk about Oscar injustices? Try this one on for size:

Roberto Benigni won an Oscar for Best Actor.

Cary Grant did not.

Just think about that one for a while. I would, but it always makes me too angry.

But watching this scene always makes me feel better. My favorite actor, in my favorite Hitchcock film.

Hear, hear. I personally don't care that The Academy attempted to make up for this gigantic oversight with their Life Achievement award given to Grant. In my mind, this organization will NEVER EVER be to able to live that down. The Man was robbed.

North by Northwest is a personal favorite of mine, too. Thanks.
