I know why this film was not nominated
21 January 2019 | by gpallos9See all my reviews

It's not because this film was not excellent enough, but because at the Academy they couldn't face with their own true self. This film illustrates how our (mine too) ego works. Pathetic? No, no oh no! This is totally normal! Normal? Well, it's not really! But it's true!
