Jason Reitman, director of "Up in the Air" and NHL.com playoff blogger, rocked the old-school Cliff Ronning era Vancouver Canucks logo during his Best Director vignette at the 2010 Academy Awards. Which obviously would have earned our vote.
Alas, Reitman lost the statue to Kathryn Bigelow for "The Hurt Locker," which is OK we suppose in a 'shattering the glass ceiling' sort of way. And she gave the world "Near Dark" and "Point Break," meaning that this was as deserved as The Dude finally nabbing an Oscar for Best Actor.
Clearly, Jason needs to go even more old school next time to impress the Academy. Two words: Flying V. Meanwhile, we count down the days until Kevin Smith's "Hit Somebody" skates away with Best Picture.
