I think the Oscars are biased when it comes to bollywood films. They like to maybe award European films for economic reasons. Who knows lol...am just making this up.

I think bollywood films have a huge chance of getting an award at the oscars if the oscars stop only giving awards to European films.

No, doubt it....some really good hollywood films don't win Oscars, and we're expecting bollywood films to win? I highly doubt it.....

Have you seen the films BW selects as it's official entries....no wonder BW never wins! And when good films like Water get banned, Devdas, Paheli, and Eklavya get chosen chances are def extremely low! I think Devdas only got chosen b/c it was so loved at Cannes!! 

Also, BW needs to lose the melodramatic element b/c the other entries are far superior in terms of performances and story-telling and the melodrama ends up killing BW's chances!

Yes but films like The Prophet, The Chorus, The White Ribbon give BW films really tough competition...India makes good films too and India shouldn't just chose from BW films, but also from regional films b/c there are really good Marathi, Tamil, Bengali films made also but they don't get the recognition b/c they don't have a large audience!

I'm still upset Colin Firth didn't win for A Single Man...fingers crossed for The King's Speech!!! But I think Oscars are given such a high pedestal b/c they may be bias but they still chose from the best...nomination list speaks volume!! Is Colin Firth the reason you find the Oscars annoying..or is there another reason?!
