   TRAFFIC could very well win the Oscar as Best Picture.
   From the VILLAGE VOICE Choices, 23 January 2001, pg. 78, col. 7:

Not just an ultra-procedural but the Whole Enchilada, Steven Soderbergh's prize-winning dope opera puts a heavy arm on the audience to demonstrate that drugs touch us all.

   There have been a few hits for "dope opera"--a "soap opera" involving drugs ("dope").  Sometimes, however, a "dope opera" is a "soap opera" for "dopes."  Whether that's better or worse than a "shitcom," I dunno.
