Sure glad Avatar didnt win anything it shouldnt have.

MrJawbreakingEquilibrium 3/7/2010 11:20:50 PM

I've only seen two of the Best Pictures - Avatar and Hurt Locker - and while good they aren't Oscar worthy by far. 


And what?  Avatar doesn't count as an animated feature or whatever?

HudsonTaco 3/7/2010 11:45:08 PM

Well that’s disappointing to say the least, Avatar was the best movie I watched last year and it should have won. The Hurt Locker was good (even though many of its cheerleaders here most likely have not seen it) but of the nominees it was 4th best overall, 5th if I take into account non-nominees. Not even Kathryn Biggelow’s best film, but she is a woman and a woman has never won so there you go, also a token Iraq War movie gotta have at least one of those. And before you come at me for my opinion really think about it, was Hurt Locker better than Black Hawk Down? Saving Private Ryan? Full Metal Jacket? Nope, and with the exception of “Ryan” were not nominated and (including “Ryan”) certainly didn’t win both Best Picture and Director. It’s like when Danny Boyle won for ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ are you really telling me that is his best work? Millionaire is more deserving than Trainspotting? But I guess that’s why I’m not a member of the Academy, congrats to all involved with Hurt Locker, like I said I still felt it was a really good movie.

SarcasticCaveman 3/7/2010 11:45:50 PM

Sorry, but I do think "Hurt Locker" deserved it more than "Avatar".  I think "Avatar" more than deserved the ones it did win, but never thought it was Best Picture worthy.  My only thing is that I wasn't really blown away by "Hurt Locker" either.  Oh well.

And Hudson Taco, what's this "token Iraq War movie" about?  I don't exactly think they're commonplace enough to be called "token", by any stretch of the word.  And I certainly think "Hurt Locker" was better than "Black Hawk Down"...it was a decent movie, but I certainly understand why it wasn't nominated.  As for "Saving Private Ryan", that year Satan must have been given the best blow job ever, because it was somehow beaten out by "Shakespeare in Love".

I agree with you dawntreader Poor Avatar...oh well on to 83rd AAW's.....where's ironman 2?

death4sale 3/8/2010 1:00:13 AM

Nah, I like Black Hawk Down more than Hurt Locker. Something about Hurt Locker didn't sit right with me. Perhaps because it had no soundtrack. I'm something of a traditionalist when it comes to film and I like my films to have music to enhance the power of the visuals. The Hurt Locker is a good film, but it was just a little boring to me. Without Renner's character, I wouldn't have cared. I don't give a rat's ass about a woman receiving the Best Director. The reason there was never a woman who won that award before is because most female Directors are sh*t. And my friend in the Army said that Black Hawk Down is the most accurate war film ever according to all of his superiors. That and Ridley Scott make it a better film to me.

Too bad District 9 didn't win anything. And I was rooting for Vera Farmiga who did a great job in Up In The Air or Maggie Gyllenhaal who was excellent in Crazy Heart. I didn't think Monique should get it. She played a woman who beats her child. Millions of people beat their children each day and they don't get an award.

Perhaps District 10 will have a better chance.

Halfluck1 3/8/2010 3:18:08 AM

 death4sale: I knew Monique was a shoe-in for it, because the Academy loves to honor the "non-traditional" actors and roles in the supporting actors categories. If someone is going to win for a role in a comedy (or for playing a mostly comedic role), it'll happen in the supporting. There have been great women's directors, but they mostly craft movies for women, which the Academy doesn't always respond to. Or, they take the attitude, "Well, nominating it will be an honor enough." Look at how "The Piano" did back in the nineties.

I was surprised that Precious beat out Up in the Air for adapted screenplay.

HudsonTaco: The wars in Afghanistan/Iraq actually haven't had much success either critically or commercially (in movies that is). There have been a lot of great plays developed from the two wars, but I felt that "Hurt Locker" was the first serious movie about war that won. I do agree that sometimes the Academy gives awards based on career achievements, rather than the merits of the individual movie.

Christoph Waltz was a no brainer and grats to Jeff Bridges for finally getting a win. The Dude Abides...

ponyboy76 3/8/2010 3:27:49 AM

I wasn't surprised that Hurt Locker won for best picture or director but I  surprised that it won for best original screenplay over Inglorious Basterds. Its also funny, seeing as how they are about to be sued by a soldier who says it was based on him..

Its was great to see "The Dude" finally get an Oscar. Crazy Heart was a good movie. He should have won for the Big Lebowski.

On another note.HOLY $HITE!! Just watched the second IRON MAN 2 trailer and it is AWESOME!! Its on Marvel.com and Youtube. The last scene is absolutely SICK!!


ddiaz28 3/8/2010 3:39:32 AM

Of course I completely forgot about the Oscars and missed them.  Oh well.  I'm fairly happy with the outcome though.  Guess I'm one of the few that commented already that actually thinks Hurt Locker deserved it's Best Picture.  It was definitely the best film overall.  Maybe not my favorite but I don't think those two are mutually exclusive.  And no, Hudson Taco, it was not better  than Ryan at least, but it's all about what it's up against.  Unfortunately Ryan was against Shakespeare in Love, which Sarcastic Cavemen already accurately explained as to why that won that year.  Definitely Satan's fault.

Havne't seen Blind Side or Crazy Heart but glad to see actor's with great careers who haven't gotten one get it.  And never in my life would I have bet on MoNique winning an Oscar ever.  Who's next, Cedric the Entertainer?
