If by controversy you mean the banning of Chartier the producer for mailing members of the acadamey, lol that SHOULD have worked against the film not for it!!
Hit for the bridge Jack and dont you come back no more no more no more no more hit the bridge Jack and dont you come back no more
Gross taking are not an indicator of the films quality,
First, the concept of quality is subjective. Second, the 6,000 voters who determine the Oscar winners means nothing to the millions who vote with their dollars every single day. On the world-stage The Hurt Locker is a loser.
If you consider that proof...I would cancel my subsciption right now, bash my computer in and then rig it with spatial charges.
Hurt Locker was merely the "taboo subject of the year" winner because no holocaust films were around.
:cough: :cough: Basterds?
Ans Avatar had far more political content than Locker, is there any moralising in HL, nope whereas you get all that hand wringing in Avatar (which by the way is more holocaustic than any other film out this season)
