I am cheering for Hurt Locker to win the best director . I hadn't known this a few days back but now I do . The director is breaking new ground and creating opportunities . Never before I have ever watched such a gusty gritty movie directed by a female director . Before you go sexist I can even go as far as to say she chokes all her male counter parts, when it comes to war movies . One of the most realistic war movies in recent times and yet takes no sides .

I hope Kathryn Bigelow does win the Best Director for Hurt Locker . It will open a window of opportunity to women directors who are forced to do chick flicks otherwise .

I honestly can't figurate out why Inglourious Basterds and District 9 are both nominated for Best Picture.

Inglourious Basterds like all of Taranttino's movies has a pitty porr storyline filled with tons and tons of unecesary violence, add long and tired scenes with unlimited boring dialogs and a most fantasious & ridiculous "what if" trama wich made this movie a most disapointing experience saved only by the acting of Christoph Waltz (wich was really good).

As for district 9, I can only say that it's one of the most ridiculous movies I had ever seen, the lack of scense, mix of "stupid documental" and "gorish action" plus a really poor acting made this movie a BIG waste of time.

I only hope Avatar, The Blind Side or at least UP will get the oscar, since any of these movies deserv it more.

The Blindside? What made that so great?

All I saw was another semi-lame 'Nice White Lady' movie.

I dunno, but is of those movies who leaves you a good taste, perhaps is the personality of the characters or the catching story wich was presented in s imple but lovely way, not all movies need a set of action packed scenes in order to be good.

I'm trying to find a way to post my annoyance for this movie without coming off as bitter, so I'll just post a parody.



I just don't see how The Blindside is different from the other movies that follow this trope other than the fact that it's a housewife instead of a teacher. It's just another cliche concept. Enjoyable is it may be (I'll admit that I found the Ron Clark Story entertaining), I don't think it's Academy worthy.

You know that Blindside is a true story right? How can it be a copy or a cliche then?

That doesn't really matter tbh. The concept is still the same. Besides, a good portion of the trope is based off true stories, doesn't make it more deserving.

Thens the idea of cliche or repeated trama looses a bit of efect, doesn't it?

Anyway, I don't think Blinside will win, perhaps Sandra Bullock will get the oscar, but the movie for best picture probably will not.

You know "The Blind Side" is a fictional film based on real people, right? It's not a documentary in the slightest. Much of the film doesn't even come close to the book, and much of the book was dumbed down in order to tell a well meaning, but well known (as a cliche), story.

"The Blind Side" is definetly a feel good movie, and it has been quite awhile since such a film has won Best Picture, but it does seem a little unlikely that the film will actually win Best Picture.

Both of those movies shouldn´t be up for best picture either imo.

Yeah, it seems like just another movie trying to show white people as some sort of mystical race of angels, whose every action results in good things happening to the ´lesser´races.

To be fair, the movie is a lot better than this tired trope, and one of the few things I would credit Sandra Bullock’s performance with is the fact that she does a fine job of not making her character reflect on the colour of Big Mike's skin. She simply sees a child in need, so she helps (admittedly, the film is hampered by the fact that the boy grows up to be a NFL draft pick, which essentially underscores the message of the film, but whatever).

That being said, I agree that the film shouldn't have been nominated for Best Picture.

The only Best Picture nominee I agree with is The Hurt Locker. I also thought Invictus was really good, why that wasn´t nominated instead of Blindside, I will never know.

^I disagree. "Inglourious Basterds", "Up", "Up in the Air", "Hurt Locker" and "Precious" are all well deserving of their nomination for Best Picture (They were actually my initial choices for what should be nominated if the previous rules had not been changed). "District 9" probably shouldn't have been nominated (I'm on the fence), and "A Serious Man" and "An Education", while very good, did not really deserve the Best Picture nomination. "Avatar" and "Blind Side" were the populist nominations (of which there si always at least one), and thankfully it doesn't look like there is much support for these nominations in this category.

The funny thing about Cameron Vs Kathryn Bigelow is . They were married once and she used to assist him back in the day . Its a battle between Master and Prodigy but the love angle makes it even more personal . Here is Cameron's take on the Hurt Locker :

Kathryn Bieglow (Hurt Locker) recently created History being the First Women to win the Best Director at BAFTA AWARDS .


She has already won the best director at Critics Choice Award . So hope Oscar does come her way . But know what would be anticlimactic , Jason Reitman & Up in The Air walking away with both Best Director/Movie . Felt George Clooney IMO deserves an Oscar for Up in the Air for a stellar performance, bringing Bingham to life . The character thanks to Clooney feels so real, also somewhere down the line your drawn into Clonney's charisma . Though quite didn't like as in enjoy the movie, too bitter sweet for my liking . But the scene where Vera/George counsel Kendrick, shows the caliber of Clooney Performance .

Unsurprising, if overly "political" awards (Bullock and Bridges were not the best in their categories, and "The Cove" should have never won, and "Coraline" should have won Best Animated film). Still, Mo'nique and Bigelow won, and "Avatar" thankfully did not receive Best Picture, so for that I am very happy.

I'm glad that Avatar didn't win Best Picture too >_> Maybe because it's just too overrated and I never really understood why everyone loved it so much...
On the other hand, I actually did not enjoy Coraline o_O I thought it was.... boring? compared to even Up and Princess and the Frog. The story didn't really captivate me at all. The Cove was a REALLY good documentary and I actually think it doesn't get enough credit. I have no comment to Bullock and Bridges though since... well I had a feeling they'd win.
