Academy Voters Didn't Watch The Passion -- That Explains A Lot

Posted by Fara Kearnes on January 27, 2005 3:02 PM |

Academy members are now admitting they NEVER EVEN WATCHED Mel Gibson 's The Passion -- which would explain why it isn't nominated in the main categories at the Academy Awards. However, the film did pick up nominations for cinematography, makeup and original score which means that professionals in THOSE fields did their jobs as voters, that is, they saw the film and judge it based on merit. And they were duly impressed enough to give it 3 Oscar nominations.

, Hollywood, with its Jewish roots, was offended that Gibson even made The Passion in the first place, while snotty Euro critics dismissed the movie as "cheesy." The film created no anti-Semitic incidents and overall has had a positive effect on most viewers. In fact, one Texas man, Dan Leach, confessed to killing his girlfriend after seeing the film (it had been ruled a suicide), and a Neo-Nazi in Norway, Johnny Olsen, confessed to two bombings after his theater experience.

Yowzers. Compare that reaction to Natural Born Killers, Oliver Stone's film opus to serial killers. The film inspired at least eight copycat murders and violent incidents by self-professed 'natural born killers,' including two Oklahoma teens who watched the film repeatedly and then went on a similar shooting spree.

I hope The Passion wins at least for Best Cinematography to spite the Academy. It's a beautifully photographed film and winning one of the awards would be a slap at those cheesy academy members who will only consider a movie if they get a free DVD.
