Apparently, the TV broadcast of AFI awards night was edited to cut out “The Black Balloon” incident. Jimmy Jack who co-wrote the winner of six AFI awards, told film critic, Jim Schembri f—you.
Because Schembri had been writing that Aussie films are box office failures because they are irrelevant to their audiences.
Well, isn’t that what I have been saying for the past year in this blog? It really is a case of the Emperor has no clothes and I hope more people will challenge those film elites who want to shove dreary films down our throats and then blame us for not wanting to see them.
Surely the point is not about getting awards but getting bums on seats!
