The Oscar Winners

Oscar craze is in town. The predictions for those in the know seems to have come true. Barry Ronge on 702 called my fave movie Avatar a "pocahontas in blue paint" and The hurt locker  an amazing movie. AND he was right, as the Oscars got announced, The Hurt Locker rolled all over Avatar. 

I am very happy for the Mo'Nique win for the role of Mary in Precious. Yeah! She rocked that character. Mark Boal in all the controversy and banning, won for best screenplay.

I'll watch the Hurt Locker but last time I watched a movie that took all the awards at the Oscars I was dissapointed, The English Patient, it was the most boring movie ever for me, yet it won numerous awards...

off the top of my head, only three times have Black actors been nominated in both main categories, the last time both won. In the seventies, neither did.Kay Gayle.PS. lekker pics.
