IRISH MEDIA SCRAPING THE OSCAR BARREL!
Not much luck this year for the Irish at the Academy Awards. So it's time to scrape the barrel and put a photograph of an Irish woman who produced a British animated short on the front page of today's newspapers! The current Film Board was set up after the success of My left foot/Crying game neither of which were Irish films. Twenty years later we still have zero impact at the Oscars. It's this obsession of winning awards that has ruined Irish cinema. It won't change either as it's now too late.
Rather sad article in today's Irish Independent newspaper about Ireland's most overrated female film director. She's been abroad...
