Hurt Locker dominates the Oscars

/ On : 10:54 PM/ Thank you for visiting my simple blog here. If you wanted to discuss or have the question around this article, please comment bellow.
(BBC)-Blockbuster Avatar and low-budget indie The Hurt Locker led the nominations as the ceremony commenced on Sunday, with nine nominations apiece, but James Cameron's 3D sci-fi juggernaut left with just three technical awards - for art direction, cinematography and visual effects. Speaking on the red carpet ahead of the awards, Cameron paid tribute to Bigelow, to whom he was briefly married, and with whom he has made a number of films. "I've extolled her virtues to the world and supported her as a film-maker. I'd be tremendously proud if she won." "We feel we've already been sufficiently celebrated," he added, referring to Avatar's "tremendous box office and the nine nominations". 

The Hurt Locker's screenwriter Mark Boal heralded the film's first success of the night, winning best original screenplay. Technical awards followed in film editing, sound editing and sound mixing. Former journalist Boal paid tribute to the film-makers, cast and crew: "The results widely exceeded my expectations," adding "this belongs to one extraordinary and visionary individual, Kathryn Bigelow".

For her part, Bigelow said: "I would not be standing here if it wasn't for Mark Boal, who risked his life for the words on the page." Despite expanding the best picture category to 10 nominees, in an attempt to allow more populist films to feature at the ceremony, The Hurt Locker has made just $15m (£9.9m) at the box office, becoming the lowest-grossing film ever to win best picture. Avatar, meanwhile, has become the biggest-grossing film in history, taking more than $2bn (£1.32bn) in the box office.

Argentina's The Secret In Their Eyes pulled off a surprise win for foreign-language film over higher-profile entries that included Austrian Cannes winner The White Ribbon and French prison drama A Prophet. Critically acclaimed 3D film Up, also shortlisted in the best picture category, won best animated feature film. "It was an incredible adventure making this movie, but the heart of it came from home," said director Pete Docter, paying tribute to his parents, wife and children. "You guys are the greatest adventure." The animation also picked up the Oscar for best original score, for Michael Giacchino, who urged other would-be film-makers to "get out there and do it - it's not a waste of time".Former Oscar winner Nick Park missed out on the award for best short animated film - for the Wallace and Gromit film A Matter of Loaf and Death - losing to French film Logorama. However, costume designer Sandy Powell proved a rare British winner of the night, winning her third Oscar for her work on The Young Victoria. A previous winner for The Aviator and Shakespeare in Love, she paid tribute to those costume designers who work on contemporary films which are often overlooked at awards ceremonies, but added the Oscar was "coming home with me". Actors Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin hosted the ceremony - the first dual hosts in 23 years - in another bid to shake up the ceremony and drive up audience figures. Oscar ratings fell to an all-time low two years ago.
