That some of the aspirants to be No. 4 we had just read about belonged to the Lapiang Pinabili Lang ng Suka or the Wassiname or Whosis Party, again indicate the state of putrefaction of a society in decay. Household names only in their own households. For No. 4, for crying out loud! The Prez was saying he would not interfere; then he proceeds to inflict his will, via a discombobulating term-sharing deal that makes eunuchs of the House, whose right to decide on who would lead it, it abandoned, sans any struggle, resistance or whimper. A truly independent House worthy of respect can change leaders any time, on its own. The administration has yet to understand the virtue of subtlety. Whatever Lolo D wants, Lolo gets, while everyone focuses on a committee to head and its budget, fantasizing on … [Read more...] about A society in decay? Pinoy vs Pinoy?

The 91st Academy Awards, also known as the Oscars, will be held on February 24. The Oscars ceremony celebrates achievements in filmmaking and has named the best picture winner every year since 1929. Some best picture winners have been forgotten over time, like “The Great Ziegfeld.” Others won over films that critics say were more deserving, like how “Crash” won over “Brokeback Mountain.” Not every best picture winner has remained as memorable as films like “The Sound of Music” and “The Godfather.” Here are 10 movies that took home the best picture Oscar at the Academy Awards that have fallen through the cracks of film history.
