The politics of the Oscars

I saw my first film in a theater in a few years (!) a couple of weeks ago.  It was "Les Miserables."  And it was incredible.

But right now, I don't want to write about the incredible story of the redemption of Jean Valjean.  I want to write about the politics of the Academy Awards.  Rather, I'd like to point you in the direction of a great piece by Barbara Nicolosi on this topic.  

If you haven't heard, a somewhat obscure foreign film, "Amour," has received a staggering number of Oscar nominations.  And the climax of the movie is euthanasia ... a murder cloaked in the guise of a loving action of a husband for his wife.

What does this mean about our culture?  What do the Oscars have to do with our country's views of life and love?
