NewsWire: Oscar Candidates Will Soon Be as Plentiful as Fallen Leaves – Los Angeles Times

by Aug 29, 2001Lord of the Rings (Movies)

Kevin Goldstein of The Los Angeles Times has already given Fellowship of the Ring 18-1 odds of picking up a Best Picture Oscar at the next Academy Awards:


A classic fable of good against evil, this Peter Jackson-directed film has the grand ambition (it’s just the first in a trilogy of films) and the mythic sweep to be a serious contender. It has some history on its side — Star Wars was a best picture nominee—and a dream cast (including Ian McKellen and Cate Blanchett) that gives it a leg up on Harry Potter. especially if academy voters aren’t offended by the Burger King marketing tie-ins.

Thanks to Sharon at Imladris for sharing this with everyone!
