I’ve been fortunate to have an opportunity to write about this year’s Oscar race in a series of essays for the news agency Thomson Reuters. In the final installment, I try to place the heat of the current race into perspective by discussing the Academy’s hits and misses in years gone by. There’s nothing like a little distance—be it one year or several decades—to see things in a different light. You can read my observations HERE

I will also be boldly going where I’ve never set foot before by “live blogging” for Thomson Reuters during the Oscar broadcast this Sunday. Stay tuned!
