Re: Joss Whedon leading on "Avengers" short list of directors - Part 1
As much as I want to see the Avengers on film, the main reason I want this to be successful is for Joss to get the respect he deserves and the clout to do whatever he wants on TV or in film, not have to go back to Fox time and time again, only to have his shows canned halfway through a season or have a movie (Cabin in the Woods) that might never see the light of day.
Oh, What's That? You Aren't Happy With This Year's Oscar Nominations? Well Consider This... Over The Past Five Years, Only Two Actors Have Won The Outstanding Lead Actor Comedy Emmy: Jim Parsons and Jon Cryer.
You Don't Have It Bad, Movie People. TV People Have It Bad.
