Well, Alrighty Then

Yes!!!!! True Grit snagged ten Oscar nominations - not the most this year, but at least this movie is getting some of what it's due - in my Humble Opinion, of course.

Best Picture

Best Actor (Jeff Bridges)

Best Supporting Actress (Hailee Steinfeld)

Best Director (Joel and Ethan Coen)

Best Screenplay (adapted) - (Joel and Ethan Coen)

And, of course five more nominations. It's extremely rare for me to get wound up about a movie. Watch the Oscars? Not so much. But, this year.......

I loved the fact that it was a straight-forward Western -- not Post Modern or Revisionist or any other twist. Just a straight-ahead Western. Which is as timeless as a Greek Tragedy. Why mess with perfection?

You know, I bet the Duke would have loved it.
