  1. Why *do* you think boxing movies are Oscar fodder? It’d be interesting to analyze this odd phemonenon. Maybe it is a combination of the war/epic genre with a bit of the gay thrown in?

    • Ha! Usually not so much of the gay. I think perhaps it is because boxing movies are biographical films about underdogs, and maybe the violence makes it seem grittier and edgier, or maybe the subject just attracts good directors. Maybe I’ll investigate and write a trend piece.
