From my movie review in Taki`s Magazine:
Will Nebraska, Alexander Payne’s modest masterpiece starring 77-year-old Bruce Dern as a taciturn ex-mechanic who stares like a senile prairie dog, somehow edge out frontrunner 12 Years a Slave for the Best Picture Oscar? Will Bruce Dern Get An Oscar That Could Have Gone To A Black Man Just By ACTING?
If it does, we’ll never hear the end of it. How often since Obama’s reelection have we been reminded that it’s long past time for stale pale males to exit the stage for the more vibrant? 
Yet, annoyingly, old white guys keep doing things that can’t be overlooked.
Read the whole thing there.

Also, eight seconds of Bruce Dern screaming at Jane Fonda.
