    Academy is robbing Avatar. Even Sound Editing, the 4 other movies were better than Hurt Locker, unless the people judging were deaf. Responds:

    Tragedy! Kathryn Bigelow Wins Best Director Award.

    I fear now that even the best picture (as per the tradition of oscars) will be bagged by Hurt Locker. Go figure Responds:

    Send my deep regrets and “Bad Day” by David Powter to Cameron. He badly need it now Responds:

    Think on the positive side – no one’s gonna remember that Kathryn Bigelow thing two years from now.

    she is James Cameroon’s Ex; and they changed the voting system from winner takes all to proportionally weighted; and they increased the number of nominees from 5 to 10 😀
    nothing to see here move along 😉 Responds:

    You write: she is James Cameroon’s Ex

    Ha ha ha.

    Just because Kathryn Bigelow once sat on the same toilet seat as Jim Cameron does not entitle her to the Oscar.

    Oh and the fact that Jeff Bridges was nominated 5 times has been mentioned every time some one as much as thought about “best actor” definitely had nothing to do with the final result 😀 Responds:

    And apparently happily married for 30+ years too.

    Ridiculous. Did no one tell him variety adds to the spice of life.
