Oscar Oscar

This is funny.

"Did you catch the flaming ignorance displayed at the Oscars, when the telecast narrator mentioned that The Departed was based on a Japanese film?" (BWG)

It's from HONG KONG MORON! I wonder how many Americans know that Japan is nowhere near Hong Kong. And of course everyone here thinks the HK version was much better. I might have to go buy a cheap VCD of it to compare, I have only seen the American one, which was good, but it was no Goodfellas or Godfather.

I guess Scorsese mentioned HK in his speech. Still you'd think tape-delayed TV could get things right.
