Godard and The Oscar


Jean-Luc Godard will apparently win an honorary Oscar this year. Trouble is, he isn’t taking the Academy’s calls and according to the Hollywood Reporter he’s clueless about his “good fortune”. Knowing Godard however, he’s probably just scheming a wonderful response. Let’s not forget his no-show at this year’s Cannes press conference for his latest SOCIALISME. Add to that this beautiful response to an award he won from the National Film Theatre years ago. I’m looking forward to seeing how/if that man responds. If we’re lucky the Academy will do some sort of live video feed in which Godard can tell the Academy what he really thinks.
