    What do you expect from a bunch of Americans who do not know how to be politically correct! I think Avatar deserved the oscars anyday!

  2. daskino says:

    Given a chance I would give it to ‘A Serious Man’…

    and as far as the avatar-hurt locker debate goes..they should have given the best director to Hurt Locker (if they had to) and the best picture to Avatar…Avatar is too mammoth to be ignored

    I was surprised by the best foreign language film i thought it would go to the whit ribbon but it went Argentina film The Secret in Their Eyes

  4. daskino says:

    white ribbon was the only film i’ve seen of the five nominees and it was amazin…guess i’ll have to see the argetine film now

  5. anil kumar says:

    ya but all awards went to white ribbon from Cannes to golden globes so i expected an award although it was nominated in two categories

  6. Tanay says:

    I agree. best dir- hurt locker. rest avatar!

  7. daskino says:

    I hate the fact that ‘district 9’ couldn’t land a single award with all those nominations, the film deserved better…

    this reminds us of the 1994 Oscars where Forrest Gump stole the spotlight from 2 of the greatest films ever – Shawshank Redemption and Pulp Fiction.

  8. daskino says:

    @anil – the Oscars are known for surprises like the Sean Penn award last year…

    however, there were very few of those this year

  9. anil kumar says:

    I agree with you but Sean Penn was deserves the award for his portrayal of Harvey Milk

  10. anil kumar says:

    This time in best actress category i felt Gabourey Sidibe deserves the award instead of Sandra Bullock

  11. daskino says:

    I’m not saying that Sean Penn is not deserving…just saying that it was one of those Oscar surprises after the globes and baftas

  12. srijana says:

    i always knew avatar was not an award material….one thing its not emotionally moving…the american imperialism comes between emotions which is more than evident…..and come on…..stop with this whole “not a movie,an experience” thing abt that movie yaar….it is not as worth…and the whole pandora reminds me only a perverted form of the amazon

  13. daskino says:

    seriously..if any line is to fit avatar perfectly..it is the ‘it is an experience’ line…its like goin to planetarium or one of those 3-d rides.
