Woody Allen just won his fourth Oscar but was too cool to show up. Angelina Jolie congratulated him on behalf of the Academy. Allen’s victory for “Midnight in Paris” means the prize didn’t go to “A Separation” — presumably the first time a script in Farsi would have won. We loved all the movies in this category, and as much as we enjoyed “Midnight in Paris,” on some level we would have loved to see Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo claim the award for “Bridesmaids.”
Allen is a living legend and all, but would it really have been so terrible to show up and accept his prize?
