Oscars 2008 - And We're Off...

I'm getting a little worried about the hostage situation between the Writers Guild of America and the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences. Each day there's a better chance the show won't go on, which somebody accurately compared to an NFL season without the Super Bowl.

Anyway, I finally had time to flip through the NYT's Oscar section from last Sunday, and found three AWESOME articles. I learned about how There Will Be Blood was made, why the use of sound was so amazing in No Country for Old Men, and how the Academy decides on Best Editing. If you have 20 minutes check these out:

If You Need a Past, He’s the Guy to Build It"

"Exploiting Sound, Exploring Silence"

"Which Editing Is a Cut Above?"

Ten days before the nominees are announced...
