The Uruguayan Prince and the Director's Branch of Diversity!

Javier! He was already my favourite South American (lol, I confess - I don't actually know that many) but that link is super-awesome. Javier discusses the Academy's Director's Branch weird yet wonderful trend of nominating directors without a correlative Best Picture nomination. God, they really made some great choices, didn't they! David Lynch! Alfred Hitchcock! Gillo Pontecorvo! Pedro Almodovar! Fernando Meirelles! Akira Kurosawa!

I'm not big of a Fellini man myself, but I can see his nominations as special.

Anyway, loves it Javier!
