There seems to be an anti-Avatar sentiment in the academy

Hurt Locker Yeah Baby!
Excellent soundtrack.

 

It ain't ignorance causes so much trouble; it's folks knowing so much that ain't so

Kathryn was standing up and probably thinking "Take that Jim!''

LOL!

Two things to keep in mind:
-Perhaps the roles of "Avatar" and "The Hurt Locker" are reversed? One winning the technical awards, the other winning the big one?
-The voting system for the Best Picture is different from the other categories. Voters need to rank the 10 movies from 1-10, and they'll keep knocking off the last place getter until one movie gets 50%+1. So the result is not as straight forward and predictable as you would think.

They're rethinking the "In Memorium" section.

Fiore winning for Avatar good for him he's been an underrated talent for a long time, probably should've been nominated for The Island and Training Day. I see the memorium got away from the steadicam stuff from last year. Is it me but I'm shocked there was no Farrah Fawcett or either I missed it.

Michael Jackson in, but Farrah Fawcett out. Doesn't seem right?

She was overwhelmingly TV, but I'd bet it was an oversight.

They said they didn't have time for the 5 original songs, but they have time for dances for the original scores?

Great win for Giacchino. He was music director on the show and does such a great job on Lost. I think he should've been nominated for Star Trek.

He's the best film composer working today imo.

I dunno if I'd say the best composer. But he's quickly established himself bing up there with the Williams, Horner's, and Hisaishi's of the world. I think what separates him is his ability to take risks, he's not a cookie cutter composer out there which is refreshing. His work as music director on the Oscars last year was nice as well.
