'The Hurt Locker' wins 6 Oscars

A clean sweep

'The Hurt Locker' wins 6 Oscars
‘Shock and awe’ for director James Cameron and co-producer Jon Landau as their much touted film Avatar was pipped to the post at the 82nd Academy Awards by Kathryn Bigelow’s gritty war drama The Hurt Locker which swept up six Oscars, including the Best Motion Picture, Best Direction, Best Editing, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing and Best Original Screenplay.

The show's hosts Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin kept the gags flowing from the moment curtains went up, making everyone from Meryl Streep to Woody Harrelson the butt of their jokes. But the night clearly belonged to the team of the movie ‘The Hurt Locker’ even though it’s leading actor Jeremy Renner, nominated in the Best Male Actor category, lost out to the favourite Jeff Bridges. Bridges won the Best Actor for his role in Crazy Heart. In his award acceptance speech, Bridges held the golden man statuette to the heavens and thanked his celebrated parents: “Thank you Mom and Dad for turning me on to such a groovy profession.”

Sandra Bullock, looking absolutely stunning in a figure hugging gown, won her first Oscar for her role in The Blind Side. She gave the most touching and heartfelt acceptance speech of the evening. She took time to thank all the co-actresses who were nominated in the same category.

“Gabby (‘Precious’ actress), I love you so much. You are exquisite. You are beyond words to me. Carey (Mulligan), your grace and your elegance and your beauty and your talent makes me sick. Helen (Mirren), I feel like we are family through family and I don't have the words to express just what I think of you. And Meryl (Streep), you know what I think of you and you are such a good kisser,” Bullock said.

The evening was hugely disappointing for James Cameron and Jon Landau, with their film ‘Avatar’ winning only 3 awards for Art Direction, Cinematography and Visual Effects.
