  1. Let's just hope he is a better judge than actor, but still- what a random category to put him in!

    1. Thanks Amelie! My sense is that they try to get a broad range of viewpoints for the committees, but I'll admit that this choice intrigued me. I still need to do some research to find out if they recruit people for that committee or if he volunteered based on his own interest in foreign films.

  2. Nice post! I've always been curious about the Academy members. Yay Keanu! :D I always think he's smarter than people give him credit for. I'm curious to see his documentary about digital vs. film debate.

    1. Thanks Ruth. I think in some ways he gets blamed for being too convincing in the Bill & Ted series. But in fairness he has actually done quite a lot of different types of films, from indie gems to big box office.

      And thanks for the tip about Side By Side. I hadn't realized that he was a producer for that until I just looked it up!

  4. Just one day after the passing of her daughter, Carrie Fisher, Debbie Reynolds has now sadly passed away, too. Absolutely tragic. RIP.
