"Best picture: What makes a winner" by Colin Covert, Star Tribune
The Academy Awards are here and the Oscars are ready. The Academy of Picture Arts and Sciences have bylaws for determining one of the most anticipated awards, best picture. For one, it must be 40-mintues in length. Covert goes into detail about each of the nominees for best picture, and even ponders the question if Little Miss Sunshine will pull out the win.
The challenge of writing this article would be discovering the research and determining what is news worthy.
Chris Hewitt of the Pioneer Press, wrote a more subjective story about the upcoming Academy Awards. Hewitt found the story in not who will be winning the awards, but who will be 'blowing' it. In a different light, Hewitt compiles a list of who will will the awards and who should have won the awards.
