If anything, the disconnect between the studios and quality films is more pronounced now than it's ever been. Hollywood's solution?

In a perfect world Meryl Streep would win her fourth Academy Award for ‎"August: Osage County." If the Oscars were awarded for pure performance, I don't see how she could not win.

Dr. Cary's Academy Award Nominations for Best Health Movie

Cary A. Presant, M.D. | Posted 03.23.2014 | Entertainment
Cary A. Presant, M.D.

You have not heard about these nominations, because the Academy really doesn't have a category of Best Health-Themed Movie of the Year.
