POP CULTURE: OSCAR PREDICTION

I saw a bit of the Golden Globes, and Nicole Kidman won best actress for the movie where she plays a sad lesbian with a big nose. OK, there's more to it than that, but I'd wager that about a third of the Oscar voters don't know much more than that either (it's just scandalous that they let people vote on movies they haven't seen). Anyway, Kidman's speech was all about how this award is a triumph over Hollywood's failure to give women good roles.

I bet she and "The Hours" win -- precisely because the film is campaigning on a feminist platform that says that a vote against this movie is a vote against good roles for women. The merits got nuthin' to do with it.
