The Hurt Locker

Now we know that 'The Hurt Locker' became the most rewarded film and that Avatar didn't win in any of the major categories.

Some say that this was because it had become to commercially succesful but on the other hand, this has never stopped The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences when it comes to rewarding films.
I'm however quite satisfied with this development.

The Hurt Locker was of course a film, not only with a current topic but also appealing to an American audience as it more depicts the soldiers being dedicated to their dangerous work in Iraq - not least the bomb disposal expert William James (Jeremy Renner) - not as being a bunch of trigger happy maniacs. This is a guess from my side as I haven't seen this film.


From a french point of view, it was good to see that 'Logorama' by François Alaux and Hervé de Crecy won in the category Best Animated Short Film. Congratulations!


Another positive surprise was that Sandra Bullock won in the category Best Actress in a Leading Role for her performance in the film The Blind Side.
This not least as she only a couple of days ago(?) was rewarded the so called Razzi Awards as wors actress in the film All Abolut Steve!
Even if she has acted in some very mainstream and light comedies I think she's a magnificent comedienne and well worth this award - that is to say the Oscar not the Razzi.
