Middle earth grieves ...

Fembat reposted a hilarious article discussing the Academy Awards from a LoTR perspective. Being a LoTR fan myself (if you didn't know this from my pen name I suggest rereading the Fellowship of the Ring), I can't help but share in Middle Earth's grief and anger at not being nominated for more acting Academy Awards. The entire article is wonderful (playing the "find the original quote" game is fun!), but my favorite snippet is probably Saruman's:

"Too long have those peasants stood against us," Saruman said, referring to the Academy's failure to give any fantasy film the Best Picture Oscar yet. "Leave none alive! To war! There will be no dawn for film critics!"
