Les Miserables is total Oscar bait. I hate movies that so obviously pander to the academy. But I'm going to see it because it looks fantastic.
I wish Dark Knight Rises would win something.
You are allowed to have your opinion, but of the nine other Best Picture nominees in 2009, what do you consider better than The Hurt Locker? It was a weak year.
The only other film that might have made a claim to either Best Picture and Director is Avatar, but that film is tripe served in 3D.
I don't get why you think Hollywood loves Bigelow. She had never even been nominated before, and this was her first movie in 7 years. I really don't think anyone cared about her sex.
You might have a case for Original Screenplay, but is your opinion really that strong on its wins in Sound Editing and Mixing? I assume you meant only the major awards.
