Last Words on Crash

Final thoughts on Crash at the Oscars:

  • From Roger Ebert.

  • From his Web site’s editor, Jim Emerson, who also offers this nugget about the recent disconnect between Best Picture and Best Director winners:
    “Perhaps the professional membership of the Academy is, in a roundabout way, distinguishing a kind of authorial vision from lesser directorial efforts when it separates the Steven Spielbergs from the John Maddens, the Roman Polanskis from the Rob Marshalls, the Ang Lees from the Paul Haggises ... “
  • And Emerson again and yet again. (I like Mr. Emerson.)
  • And, surely, this is a joke. Right?
