OSCARS: All Discussions.
« on: December 12, 2009, 11:22:58 AM »
I hope once again that they give the right people the awards and the right movies that awards they deserve.

I want to share this article released by moviescitynews their list of nominees.

http://www.joblo.com/index.php?id=29972

I want to take out - INVICTUS, UP IN THE AIR, NINE I don't think these movies deserves the awards. Yes, go ahead nominate them if they want to, but why they excluded THE ROAD?

The Road should be in the contender list.

Inglorious Basterds is easily one of the best films of the year. Just friggin' outstanding. Tarantino deserves a Best Director and Best Screenplay nomination as well.

MY GOD THE ROAD ISN'T IN THE RUNNING?!?!?! How could this travesty be allowed? It's by FAR the best film of the year, IMHO.

Let's wait for the actual list of nominees. I am kind of pissed too at the list above. They have UP IN THE AIR, but not THE ROAD. WOW!!!

 ;D - Nope. And have not intentions to watch it. George Clooney is on the screen again. I am truly disappointed. Clooney's arrogance and self-awareness are clearly conveyed in all his roles. He is without a doubt the most overrated actor in Hollywood. His acting is mediocre at best. Whenever he is on film, I never truly believe that he is the character in the film--but rather George Clooney playing the character in the film and knowing he looks good portraying that character.

The movie is directed by Jason Reitman, who is an up and coming excellent director.  Not only is it a well made movie, but has huge cultural relevence with the economy and job market the way they are.  Rohan, I understand what it's like to have one of your favorite movies snubbed, but there are other people out there who make decisions about what they think is best also.  Plus, give it time until the official nominations come out, you know they expanded the list to include more films.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

I'm just waiting for the list of actual nominees. I take my words back on whatever I stated about INGLORIOUS BASTERDS, QT deserves the award, but THE ROAD is a movie that should not be ignored.

Marco, do you have an issue with Slumdog Millionaire and Gran Torino?

Yes indeed.Gran Torino was one of the best movies of 2008 and it was totally ignored.On the other side,the 8 Oscars to Slumdog Millionaire were a bit too much.Of course,my opinion  ;)

I agree with you. 8 Oscars for Slumdog and movies like that been made before in India, but in Bollywood form. The story and theme was totally something new and heart breaking for the western audiences and since Danny Boyle was on the director's seat he directed very well. I think he deserved the oscar for best director, but 8 oscars was not important at all. The music composer AR Rahman also won oscar, but he made several good music for other Indian films, but many times they ignored his talent. Now he is a big deal in India since he got an oscar.

Gran Torino is also a good movie and was ignored at the oscars. It deserved the nominations.

Oh, I agree, with both your comments about Gran Torino and Slumdog Millionaire.  A.R. Rahman did a good job, but James Newton Howard should have won the oscar for best original score that year.
