Neil Everett: Everybody Loves an Underdog

Neil Everett

The Oscar nominees were announced Tuesday. They are cinema's Super Bowl. If you are a fan of the underdog, then your Oscar winner will have to be "The Hurt Locker." Here's how the movie's star compared his film's chances against "Avatar." "It's a true David and Goliath kind of story, isn't it. You know what? I love being David. ... It's like 'The Bad News Bears' or something, or Rocky Balboa." There's you're sports analogy. Good luck to "The Hurt Locker" in its face-off against the "Damn Yankees."
