Matt Damon tells Parade mag today that – when it comes to honoring films – the Academy has it all wrong. “I think that the best way to judge movies is, like, 10 years after they're released,” he said. “I think they should have done the Academy Awards this year for movies from 1998. I think it's better to look at a movie and then step back and look at it again. I don't think – that the awards necessarily get it right. I think they get it wrong more often than they get it right.”
Wouldn’t that have made this the year for “Good Will Hunting” to win some little statues? We’re just saying….
