Jan Komasa’s film “Corpus Christi” did not win an Oscar, but the nomination itself was a huge distinction for the young Polish director. The greatest loser, however, was Sam Mendes’s film, with only three Oscars for “1917” in lesser categories serving as nothing more than a consolation prize for that fantastic production.
This is not a surprise, as films which in some ways touch the human spirit do not have a chance in the eyes of today’s jury. It is hard to say how “Parasite” enchanted them and earned three of the Academy’s most important awards.
The awards themselves aside; this year’s ceremony was a show of hypocrisy and self-righteousness from movie stars. They bombarded the audience with their “deep thoughts” and liberal agenda without even a modicum of self-reflection.
