    Kris, to pipe up in agreement, it is worth noting the rise of the Blockbuster. We are still living through that trend. But Jaws and Star Wars did not win. I mentioned the argument that the decline of the star driven mid budget drama paved the way for gritty fare to win. EW noted that star driven dramas were Oscars bread and butter. And they have have still faced challenges over the decade.

    “Aronofsky? He might win Director one day too, but he’d have to way dumb it down to ever win Oscars across the board”

    This is the funniest thing Stone has ever written.
