Oscar Race Aftershocks

February 20, 1988

Please correct me if I'm wrong. Didn't Albert Brooks have at least as many lines and at least as much on-screen time as William Hurt in "Broadcast News"?

Yet Hurt has been nominated for a best actor Oscar, while Brooks' work only merits a nod for best supporting actor.

Perhaps it is true: the good-looking guys do succeed over the smart and funny ones. And they get all the great women.
