Kathryn Bigelow – She Deserves the Gold!
UPDATE: Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker” has won the National Society of Film Critics’ awards for picture, director and actor for Jeremy Renner.
It is interesting to note that it is the first film since 1997’s “L.A. Confidential” to sweep top honors from the Los Angeles, New York and national critics’ groups.
On the road to Oscars….
According to most film critics and Oscarologists “The Hurt Locker” is one of the three movies that everybody considers to be in front for the Oscar race…”Up In The Air,” “Avatar,” and “The Hurt Locker.”
Talking about “The Hurt Locker” director Kathryn Bigelow says “it’s definitely a style of filmmaking I respond to… it just seems to be a really engaging use of the medium. Cinema has the capacity to be so physiological. Prose can be reflective. I’m not sure cinema can be as reflective as that, but it can definitely propel you into an event and cause your heart to race…if that’s the desired response.”
Bigelow sees “The Hurt Locker” as the “Holy Grail of filmmaking,” an entertaining genre movie that opens a window into a current event.
We wish Kathryn Bigelow, Jeremy Renner and all the cast and behind the camera crew a great successful Oscar race.
