It's become a routine thing with the idiots in the academy to snub the director of a best picture nominee. Inception was nominated for best picture but they snubbed Christopher Nolan... Others have won best pictures without even a director nomination like Driving Miss Daisy and the movie Chicago.... to name just a couple.
Here was my reaction to the nominations for the #Oscars this morning when I realized they did not nominate Ridley Scott.
If you are a fellow fan of Ridley Scott then please go to Twitter and retweet my message to the Academy. bit.ly/ridleyscottoscar
