LOL. Content? Did you actually WATCH that trite piece of trash?
The ONLY reason it won was politics. Pure and simple. It was directed by a woman, and there was a lot of commentary about how a woman has never won in that situation, so those idiots voted for that awful piece of junk in order to get their names in the history books.
The Oscars haven't been about reality in years. This year was no different in that respect.
Thank God, someone who has brains and can think
The Hurt Locker had no story lol.
The Hurt Locker, proof that a majority are idiots...
Who gives a rats @$$ about the Academy Awards anyway?
Its just the Hollywood Elite sucking and stroking each other off and making a show out of it.
Exactly. The people who go to the academy awards (and all film critics for that matter) are just a bunch of snobby intellectuals who like to look down there nose at those of us who don't understand their "art." Now, I'm not denying that The Hurt Locker was an interesting film (in places). It just wasn't as good as Avatar.
Avatar is like Eregon. It doesn't matter if the story is a little cliched. It doesn't matter if some of the lines look put on in writing. It does everything so well that you don't care. The story is still moving, despite it's cliche, and the lines come off very well in the film proper when backed by the appropriate action and score. It also left me with some interesting characters to analyze.
If the "intellectuals" don't get it, well, I really don't care. Frankly, I'm of the opinion that they intentionally choose films that aren't as good so they can be different and pretend that it makes them smarter. Kind of like all those stupid kids in High School who spend all their time looking for a unique style, even if that style is way dumb.
