        I showed *Roma CittÓ Aperta* in my film history class today
and thought about what kind of Italian film (and performer) grabs
Oscars these days: *La Vita ╚ Bella*/Roberto Benigni.  Demoralizing.
However:

>I'm sure Washington will get the Oscar over the more subtle finer
>Russell Crowe

        I sure hope you are right.  What's wrong with awarding a long
overdue Oscar to an outstanding performance by an African-American
actor?  Speaking of overdue: when is the Academy going to award a
lifetime achievement Oscar to the Nicholas Brothers??
