Oscar Night

Wooohoooo! It wasn't much of a surprise to see Sandra Bullock go up there and claim her award, but it was sure nice to see her get it. :)

Poor ol' James Cameron though. He must be realllyyyy mad. I mean, ten years in the making and just three Oscars? The other six had to go to none other than his ex-wife Kathryn Bigelow's low-budget, underrated, and under-grossing movie The Hurt Locker.

Kathryn Bigelow with her two awards for Best Director and Best Picture for The Hurt Locker.

I think the Academy is just out to drown expectations. Lol, it's actually a very interesting theory, why Avatar didn't win. But that'll just have to wait for another post. :)

Oscar expectations!

Okay here are the nominees I think will win at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards.

Best Picture:
Avatar, no contest. Ok there's The Hurt Locker and Inglorious Basterds but I think it'll be Avatar.

Best Actor:
Jeff Bridges
I dunno. I haven't seen the movie. Something just tells me that he's gonna win. :P

Best Actress:
Sandra Bullock

For sure, it's gonna be her. Meryl Streep aint gonna win again. Sandra Bullock was awesome in The Blind Side. Though she's acted the same type of character in other movies (Miss Congeniality being one of them) she just might win. I'm actually surprised that Meryl Streep was nominated and not Amy Adams. Both of them were equally good.

Best Supporting Actor:
No idea, because I watched none of the movies except The Lovely Bones. But Stanley Tucci has a fat chance of winning. I'm thinking Christoph Waltz for Inglourious Basterds. He's got the highest rating in IMDb.com's poll.

Best Supporting Actress:
seems to be the favourite on the IMDb.com poll. Maybe she'll win. :) OH I loved her in Soul Plane!

Best Director:
Oh it's a tie between James Cameron, Kathryn Bigelow, and Quentin Tarantino. Personally, I don't think the academy is going to let James go home with an Oscar this year. Kathryn might get it. But then, the academy has never been fans of the war on Iraq, but then AGAIN this movie has been nominated for as many Oscars as Avatar sooo... I'm going with Kathryn Bigelow. :)

Now since I don't really care about the rest...We'll skip right to very last, that is:

Best Animated Picture:
I HATE to say this, but looks like Up's a shoe in for winner. Fuckin boring movie with no solid storyline. NO bold font for Up cos it's teh suck. :P

So there we go. My predictions. I hope I'm wrong about Up :)

The Accused

Man, movies can really change your life. The Accused changed my perception on rape, not that I had earlier formed any opinion on it. I knew rape was wrong but I didn't get it. Probably because I was a guy? I don't know, but I just didn't get it. Just a few days before I watched this movie, I was talking to Shu and Ellana about rape and I asked them if it was painful (I didn't mean to imply that they had any prior experience) and they looked at me as if I was stupid. I just didn't get it.

But when Sarah Tobias ran out of The Mill at the beginning of the movie, she screamed a scream I will never ever forget in my life. The moment I heard that scream, I knew that this movie was gonna be one I'd always remember.

Rape is not good. Lol, sounds like I've found some new age concept, doesn't it? Well it's true, nonetheless. I don't understand how guys can find it hot. Seriously, I did not get a hard-on seeing her being forced onto a pinball machine and having her clothes tore off her, and her mouth covered and hands bound to the sides of the machine. It wasn't pleasant. What more, her scream. Her suffering. Knowing that there was nothing she could do, yet trying to find a way to escape. All she could think of was "No".

Rapists should be raped. That's all I can say. They need to know how others felt and were affected as a result of their horny-ness. If I'm a judge, I'd sentence them to a lifetime of prison and a monthly ass-fuck as a reminder. Seriously, they need that. They didn't even feel sorry for Sarah, you know. They claimed she was a slut for dancing and flirting in the pub. Hey, everyone flirts in the pub/ club. That's no reason for them to get raped. Asswipes.

All rapists should get fucked, in the ass. That's my law.

The list of most disturbing movies has been updated:

1. Boy's Don't Cry
2. The Accused
