Oscars

I didn't watch the Oscars. Sometimes I see someone say "I give up on the Oscars" after they make some particularly stupid award decision. I really gave up on the Oscars, a long time ago.

Go to this list of Oscars for "Best Costume Design" and scroll down to 1982, where you'll see:
    1982: Bhanu Athaiya, Madeline Jones and John Mollo - Gandhi
    Albert Wolsky - Sophie's Choice
    Piero Tosi - La Traviata
    Elois Jenssen and Rosanna Norton - Tron
    Patricia Norris - Victor/Victoria

You know what other movie came out that year? This one.

What's the point of an award that doesn't even have a credible pretense of being about merit?
