also, like, three years ago for the artist. not that that’s a shining example or anything
I said it once a couple of days ago and I’ll say it again; I liked Jean Dujardin in that movie because the man excels at a kind of acting that hasn’t been en vogue in fucking decades. I was all for his win.
A Fish Called Wanda should be mandatory viewing for all voting Academy members, because it will remind them that dramatic films don’t have the monopoly on great acting, and that there’s a god damn precedent for rewarding comic performances. Good ones, too.
They gave Oscars for comic performances???
Once upon a time, dude. The 80s were a long time ago.
I love that movie
John Cleese is a comedy wizard. Everyone in this movie rules.
I take that back: Kevin Kline doing a backwards ninja roll from the lotus position into a stealth pose is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a good long while.
So I’m watching A Fish Called Wanda and the short sequence where Kevin Kline (who won a fucking Oscar for this [remember when they gave Oscars for comic performances?]) grabs a framed picture of Jamie Lee Curtis, punches it out, and faux-apologizes to Michael Palin is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a good long while.
