Hollywood versus reality

From my Email:
The current batch of Oscar nominations underscores the notion that now more than ever Hollywood is out of touch with America.

The simple fact that twice as many people have seen the documentary “March of the Penguins” than have seen any of the five nominations for Best Picture (“Brokeback Mountain,” “Crash,” “Capote,” “Munich” and “Good Night, and Good Luck”) drives the point home.

The combined audience total for all of the Best Picture nominations is less than the number of moviegoers who flocked to see “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.”
