3. Anyone can win an Oscar
Really, just take a look. The Artist is the first (almost) silent film to win the Best Picture Oscar in 83 years and the first winner ever from a non-English-speaking country. A Separation is the first Oscar-winning film from Iran. Best Supporting Actor Christopher Plummer became the oldest person ever to win an Oscar ("You're only two years older than me, darling. Where have you been my whole life?"). And who could have imagine Flight Of The Conchords Bret McKenzie, writer of Best Original Song for 'Man Or Muppet', would ever be an Oscar winner? One day, it could be you.
