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.

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?!

Bollywood..no never!!!
If you see the quality of  the films that BW has produced has gone down and down over the years. It was much better 10 to 20 years back when they had less resources and budget but their story had substance and it was enough to hold the audience for three long hours but today they have so much money resources publicity agencies and all but no story nothing!!! I just doze off to sleep usually once the movie starts these days.

OMG....if you say that on the streets NOW especially post-Jesse thing...you could get shot!!!LOL BE careful!!!!

But I think it was her career high and ppl just love her so they were a little bias!!! But I love her so I'm glad she won, but that girl from Precious was also so effin' fantastic!!

But like I said where do only BW films get selected...I mean INDIA makes amazing films and I'm pretty sure we had sometime way better than Paheli, Eklavya, and Devdas up our sleeve!!!

Also, I felt like TZP was a fantastic entry b/c it was carried off so brilliantly by a CHILD....that like never happens and when it does it usually gets nominated!!! I think HW looks done on BW and sometimes I would agree b/c the 90s were truly so OTT and melodramatic and while HW was producing Forrest Gump, Philadelphia, Schindler's List...BW was high on family drama!!! I think there's a reason BW gets ignored and it's b/c masala flicks get all the attention while the really good films don't garner as much attention of moolah!!
