Honestly I could care less. I never watch or give a flying rip about any Hollywerid awards. I don't care to feed the ego's of the their already inflated big heads. Can you tell I don't care? LOL

If you ever watch Trainspotting, that has my opinion about the Oscars presented quite well.

Lincoln was a excellent movie with good acting and had real americana in it I thought.

Both Argo & Lincoln have had this laid at their door step and both are correct. You can find plenty about both in various articles on the net. Some historical inaccuracies are acceptable and understandable, some can ruin the film. I don't think either of these are ruined by their inaccuracies but if you are looking for a history lesson you're watching for the wrong reason.
