82nd Academy Award Results

So, last night’s Oscars ceremony was a testament to great movie production over commercial success. It was also the story of an ex-wife getting, not one, but two over her ridiculously successful ex-husband –  in his very field of expertise. Aside from the fashion and Ben Stiller’s ‘Avatar’ inspired costume, it was a night of little to report detracting from the ultimate purpose. And, boy did this focus help to re-establish the Academy’s image as a representative of quality.

We all know that Avatar’s was an excellent film, but those who say it deserved to win the Oscar for ‘Best Picture’ clearly don’t understand what it takes to create a truly excellent film. The visuals were undeniable, hence why it has won Oscars in the areas of Cinematography and Special Effects. However, Best Picture needs to be all that and more and had Avatar beat The Hurt Locker purely down to its commercial success then the Academy would have undoubtedly suffered a fall from grace with regards to respect from the members of the film production industry.

Without further ado, heres the winners roll:

Best PictureThe Hurt Locker
