Robert Altman never won a competitive Oscar.
In the words of Letterkenny’s Wayne, I suggest you let that one marinate.
Yep, still don’t feel right.
I mean, you give little gold men to dross like Lord of the Rings, yet Altman goes 0-for-7, with just a Lifetime Achievement Oscar on his mantle.
Sit down, watch this epic ode to excess — a mad swirl of comedy, drama, music, and heartbreak, weaving approximately 247 characters into a tapestry of America — and tell me again how that’s fair.
Awards or not, Altman’s films endure, forever delivering a vicious backslap to the ignorant Academy.
