It's not disingenous when you have the hardware to prove it.
First Contact did not win the Oscar for Make Up in 1997. See my previous post.

I know it didn't - I was referring to Star Trek. I Should maybe have clarified that.

Negative I was wrong. That was only a nomination for Contact.

Way to go, Star Trek. A makeup award is way better than nothing. It would have been a serious contender for the special effects category, if not for stinkin' Avatar hogging all the glory.

In oposite to STVI (that had to compete with Terminator 2 in the makeup category) the low competition made it a very deserved victory. There were some great Alien masks in STXI.

Star Trek finally gets that makeup oscar it should have won a lot more often. (but wasn't expensive enough to buy the jury )

It's still unbelievable that STI didn't at least win two oscars (how could it lose the music oscar?)

I've heard good things about The Hurt Locker. It's reported to be an intense film. I saw her ex-husband James Cameron giving her a big round of applause for Best Director.

If what I've heard is right, then the Oscars got those two right.

I also noted Michael Giacchino's Oscar for Up. Well deserved there.

And of course, congratulations to the Makeup team. Nicely done !!!

Congrats also to Giacchino for winning for his score for 'Up' and a BIG one to Kathryn Bigelow for becoming the first ever woman to win the Best Director Award!!

Wonder if she feels 'on top of the World!!!!'










(Now we just need the inevitable whining from someone that the Academy Awards are a joke and normal service will have resumed.......)
I'm happy she won and Cameron didn't. The Hurt Locker is a superior film to Avatar. Avatar already is the highest grossing worldwide film of all time and Cameron has his Titanic Oscar. I think that's enough.

Well, in fairness they are not worth comparing directly to each other as they are very different films in intent etc.

They're pretty good within their respective genres.

But I reckon that Cameron had no problem losing to Bigelow under the circumstances!
