      Thats not entirely true….this is the last five Academy Award for Best Picture winners.

      Argo – 45 mil
      The Artist – 15 mil
      The King’s Speech – 15 mil
      The Hurt Locker – 17 mil
      Slumdog Millionaire – 15 mil

      Now I’m not saying that those numbers are not a lot of money because it is, but when you compare it to other movies in that time frame, its not really all that much.

      Skyfall – around 200 mil
      Transformers: Dark of the Moon – 175 mil
      Inception – 160 mil
      Avatar – 235 mil

    What Oscar Award Winner From A Previous Year Has Stood Up To The Test Of Time? This means you still think the film or actor or actress deserved the award.
    Can be a film that won Best Picture or had a winner in any category.
    Please tell us something about the film, such as…
    What was the basic plot?
    What was the award for & when was it awarded?
    What was so great about that film or that award winner?
    Must tell us something other than film title in order to qualify for Best Answer.
    Please name only one film in order to leave something for other people to answer.

    Here’s mine: I chose West Side Story, out in 1961, award ’61 or ’62, because I liked it then on film & on stage in a college production. The movie rec’d 10 awards, including Best Picture. I still loved it when I saw it on stage at another college again a few years ago with a talented h.s. girl with beautiful voice capturing the innocence of the young Maria. (and looking more Puerto Rican than Natalie Wood btw.) I’m sure the gangs of N. California were on everyone’s minds. I don’t see many films, but I’m sure I’d still love it, especially the songs America & Maria. It’s unfortunate that the gang problem has remained with our culture & has stood the test of time, but we still can enjoy the artistic merits of the production & the similarity to Shakespeare’s story of Romeo & Juliet.

    What Did You Thought About The Oscars A Few Nights Ago? I know it was a few days ago, there was a lot surprise winners. what was your thoughts on the oscars

    • Curator says:

      For me, this year was very disappointing, almost as bad as 2011 when Anne Hathaway and James Franco bombed. I thought MacFarlane was dreadful in the beginning, and his jokes low-class. And this year didn’t have films that I thought were really entertainment enough, with two films political docudramas, Argo and Zero Dark Thirty, and Lincoln being essentially another docudrama, that left just a few other entertainment films. I wasn’t much thrilled with any of the films this year so it was the least exciting of any awards show that I can recall from the past.

      I thought the awards themselves went well, and perhaps did reflect what I felt – every film got some award, even if it was just one, and that means that not one of them was so great that there warranted a sweep of awards, so it wasn’t any one film that won big but individual acts that were recognized. Like the year Titanic was nominated and Lord of the Rings – they took 11 awards; Chicago took 6 awards, Slumdog Millionaire took 8 awards. The awards were divided completely across the board as each major category was for a different film, that’s very telling. No one film took two of the major awards – Best Film, Argo; Best Director, Life of Pi; Best Actor, Lincoln; Best Actress, Silver Linings Playbook; Best Supporting Actor, Django Unchained; Best Supporting Actress, Les Miserables.
