I haven’t seen any of these and doubt I ever will except perhaps for Zero Dark Thirty when it becomes a rental. Yawn.

Jennifer Lawrence should get an award just for looking good.

lol. She looked good last night picking up her People’s Choice Award. Funny 407 million people voted which was more than what the Presidential Election gets....I voted in the People’s Choice AND the Presidential. I guess only 25 percent did the same. Kinda sad.

Haven’t seen any of the films up for Best Picture. About the only films I’ll probably view when they come out on DVD are Zero Dark Thirty, and Life of Pi, and it might take years for them to be reached on my Netflix Queue.

Afflek and Bigelow were snubbed in the best director category... Which doesn’t bode well for Argo or ZDT in the best picture category.
Lincoln will probably take it.

Yea.. Affleck not getting a Director nomination REALLY surprises me... That was a very well directed film.

ZDT is not a favorite of liberal hollywood. No cheers were given when the movie was nominated for anything.

The Best Pic winner will probably be ‘Les Miz’.

IMHO I’ve never understood the ceremony of a bunch of rich entertainers getting together to reward one another for what a great job they did in their jobs. Shouldn't they be rewarding the public for spending their hard earned $$ at the movie theater to make these people the millionaires that they are?

Just sayin’.

It is an industry award. The whole point is that it’s what this particular industry thinks was the best of their own work for a given year. As for a bunch of rich entertainers, only four of the Oscars go to actors. The rest go to craftspeople and not all of them are rich.

Just saw it.

After all the torture controversy over it I think it was overblown. They showed a guy getting waterboarded for like ten seconds. Then they showed him having his pants removed in front of the Maya character. Then they showed him led around like a dog for around 10 feet and put in a small box.

Marathon Man had worse torture and that movie is 40 years old.

I didn’t think the film was pro-torture or anything. It never said this stuff worked and was the reason we got Bin Laden. It was more that this was went on in the beginning and it’s a part of the story.

I think the real anger from the left is that t he film was not anti-torture. There was no statement from anyone about how what they were doing was wrong. No one showed any remorse or regret. No one criticized it.

The left was looking for that moment. They wanted some here character to stand up and deliver some righteous monologue about how Bush and Cheney were all war criminals and how America was staining its soul by doing this stuff. And there was none of that.

Did Bigelow pay a price by not getting nominated? Maybe. But she was nominated in every other awards show and has already won quite a few. So there are plenty of critics and guilds groups that have recognized her.

Moreover, Boal was nominated and if the left really had a beef it would be with him since he actually wrote the script and developed the narrative/plot/story. Bigelow just filmed/directed it. Boal’s the guy who’s responsible for the depiction and viwpoint on torture. And the academy nominated him, so I don’t see some huge conspiracy or effort to deman the film. It was nominated for best picture and best actress.

Overall I really enjoyed it. I knew the story going on so I already knew what was going to happen in a lot instances.

I would have liked to see a bit more about the CIA base bombing. But that’s really a whole different issue. How did they ever let someone like that get so close, tons of mistakes there.

Also, watching the actual raid I kept wondering why Bin Laden wasn’t more prepared. The SEALS were outside his house for 10+ minutes and he had to hear the choppers and the grenades/charges and gunfire. yet he pretty much just stayed in his room and was unarmed when he was hit. Kind of odd he was so passive. I guess maybe by that point he was just resigned to his fate. Tired of hiding/running.
