It always amuses me to ride the wave of chatter about Oscar nominations. Behind every list of supposed snubs is a flawed premise: these trophies are due to individuals for a job well done. If that were true, sunshine would arrive with every snowfall and chocolate would be ruled a food group.
The Oscars are not about merit. Nobody got robbed of anything except maybe political clout. They are about campaigns for merit. If that sounds like a political arena, then you’re getting there.
