: :Jason Lee, as an actor has a right to bitch all he want because he has a better view of how the acedmey works then you would.

: True, I don't doubt he knows how the Academy works better than I do. However his post was centred around a lack of appreciation of his film, due to Dreamworks not financially supporting the Academy - where other Dreamworks pictures were nominated wern't they and AF was nominated for four awards - it just seemed like sour grapes to me.

Sour grapes is a call for reasoning. In Aesop's fable, the fox tried and tried to get grapes from a tree, but finally gave up, saying that they were probably sour, anyway. I think. Plus, it's hard to tell what a person meant when they write a post. Many times I've written, and I've seen other posters write sarcastic posts, mocking other posters, and ended up getting corrected (by flaming, or by a kind word) by someone, or many other people.

Rrrright, just calm down, and don't bring up old arguments from the Last Board.
