OScars are overrated on this forum LOL They might be a little better than bollywood awards, but I agree they are also biased towards certain films/genre. lol that's funny no weird films so Benjamin button was out lol..that's funny.

arre i read an article which kinda went over the nominations and related it with the voting members of kodak academy..the rpedictions were spot on..slumdog did not deserve the best movie award..but given the economic depression then it was the only movie in the list that had a positive ending and favourable to the voters.


the rules i listed are solely for the best film. im aware ang lee won the best director for brokeback mountain as well

Yes totally. I think the director is def talented. I think he is a newcomer. He had a good vision, but fell to make the film entertaining. The film was def interesting but yet still fails to grab your attention at part. And yes the performance was good but not as great as people said it was.

although from the films nominated that year for Best Picture I only saw Slumdog I was happy it won the film was good so they have issues  in the Best Picture category in others Kate won Heath won & Sean also won

Hey everyone
Someone directed me to this page because of the discussion that was going on! Went through it all and its SO very heartening to see most of you support the awards and have understood the point behind it :).

Just posting a reply to those who think we are against comedy. We honestly aren't! If Housefull and Golmaal 3 would have been comedies that were SO funny and unique that they deserved to be in the Best Film category, we'd have certainly put it there. For example, a Khosla Ka Ghosla is a super film that would have easily been a best film contender had it released this year.

But for those who've seen Phas Gaya Re Obama - do compare that with a Housefull and Golmaal 3!  Phas Gaya is funny without being gross or crass, slapstick without being loud, intelligent without being insulting! Now that could be a best film nominee! 

But of course, as one of you pointed out, the idea behind the awards is not to show another awards function down, its to give the underrated, unnoticed, but much more deserving performances/films of the year their due, even if they dont have the star power.

Like I said - this initiative's started for the love of good cinema not the hatred of bad cinema!

Cheers
Nikhil
