Scorsese finally joins the Oscar club - International Herald Tribune
I can't believe I'm actually excited for him but strangely enough I always thought he was perpetually getting snubbed by the Academy for some strange reason.
But in a matter of speaking, this is a strange tribute not just to him but the the Hong Kong movie industry as well. My understanding is that for a very long time, the HK directors were deriving much of their influence from him. And in The Departed, he returned the favor by drawing on Infernal Affairs.
And finally a win for Mr. Scorsese. Sweet.
