Oscars to create history this year! The Hurt Locker
In the Oscar history of 81 years, never has a woman won the trophy for Best Director. So, is it going to happen this time?

For starters, the critically acclaimed war epic The Hurt Locker’s director Kathryn Bigelow is the natural choice for the Oscars this time. According to Rotten Tomatoes, “It seems probable to us that Academy voters, aware of the opportunity to make history, will give the award to Bigelow, who’d be worthy of the honor regardless of gender.”

Kathryn is the fourth woman to be nominated in the Best Director category and has already shocked many by directing a gritty, suspenseful and almost real war drama. As she said last year, “I’ve spent a fair amount of time thinking about what my aptitude is, and I really think it’s to explore and push the medium. It’s not about breaking gender roles or genre traditions.”

Earlier, Lina Wertmuller (Seven Beauties, 1976), Jane Campion (The Piano, 1993) and Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation, 2003) were the only women directors to find a place in the Oscar race.

And the Oscar drama gets further intense as Kathryn is pitted against none other than her ex husband James Cameron, director of the worldwide hit Avatar. If ‘Avatar’ is a technical masterpiece and collected millions across the globe, ‘The Hurt Locker’ has won many hearts because of its tense war dramatization that brings out the experiences of US soldiers in the life of fire in Iraq.

Action awaits you on the night of March 7 (March 8 morning IST).

We have started the discussion of ‘who will win?’ Tell us what do you think?
