From The Grandmother to Mulholland Drive, David Lynch's body of work is incredible. Sure he's kind of weird, but he's bucked the Hollywood system (almost successfully) for years now and made a name for himself as one of the more unique directors on the planet. He can creep us out with something like Blue Velvet or Eraserhead but then give us The Straight Story, a heartwrenching tale of what ordinary citizens must do to overcome. I'm looking forward to his next, but why is it 3 hours long? And speaking of filmmakers, I hope this is Scorsese's year. He so like deserves something after Taxi Driver, Goodfellas, and Raging Bull. C'mon.

Ok, so Scorsese just won a Golden Globe. He deserves an Oscar or two at this point in his career. It's really mystifiying that he hasn't won anything all these years don't you think?
