Tom O'Neil rants about Gotham Award nominees

in the L.A. Times,

When the Gotham nominees were announced yesterday, however, there was a shocking embarrassment among the contenders for best picture: "The Departed," which cannot, in any way, be defined as an indie. Warner Bros. produced it for $90 million.

How ridiculous! Personally, I hope that members of that indie-film org demand their dues back from such an irresponsible group pushing films that are so clearly contrary to its reason for existence.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
