If the movie Slumdog Millionaire was last year’s movie which swept the most Oscars Awards, this year, the movie “The Hurt Locker” did it sweeping 6 Oscars 2010 Awards.
A lot of movie fans were shocked as the movie “Avatar” was defeated by the movie “The Hurt Locker” in a lot of categories.
In fact, “The Hurt Locker” topped the Oscars 2010 Awards getting 6 category awards as it won Best Director, Best in Film Editing, Best Motion Picture, Best in Sound Editing, Best in Sound Mixing, and Best Original Screenplay. This is against Avatar’s winning only 3 Oscars 2010 Awards as it won Best in Art Direction, Best in Cinematography, and Best in Visual Effects.
Interestingly, the two films which are contenders for the most number of Oscars 2010 Awards have a connection in that The Hurt Locker Director Kathryn Bigelow was the former wife of Avatar’s Director James Cameron.
Personally, I have already watched the movie “Avatar” and I could say that it’s one of the best movies I saw. No wonder why it topped the charts as one of the highest grossing film. However, I haven’t watched the movie “The Hurt Locker”.
Some movie reviews to “The Hurt Locker” said that the film was overly emotional and overrated and that it didn’t deserve to win a lot of Oscars 2010 Awards against Avatar. Well, upon topping the Oscars 2010 Awards list, I am now interested to see it also to know if it’s really worth winning the 6 Oscars Awards that it got.
