    Oscars Sold Out to Lords Trilogy

    I can see best picture and possibly best director but best Art Direction & Set Decoration. That would be like giving it to Ep. II. It just doesn't float. Too much CGI and too many green screens. Especially when its up against movies with little to no cgi or green screens.

    I don't know if this is a "here's your awards, thank goodness these movies are over" or a reward for a body of work. I'm sorry that doesn't work either. They have special Oscars for bodies of work.

    It's a shame when there are much more deserving movies out there that are getting the shaft for no good reason. Look my paint box picture beat your hours and hours of sweat and hard work on an actual set.

    Maybe it's winning because it deserves it? I dunno; i maybe biased as i'm a LOTR junkie, but i'm giddy beyond all belief for all the recognition it's getting tonight. Go LOTR!!

    They used a TON of actual settings and BUILT alot more sets to compliment the CGI sets made. Use your common sense.

    Don't look too much into it, Sidiously. The Academy also gave it up for Titanic a few years ago, know what I mean?

    Yeah. And seriously, did you see the list of stuff it was up against? It was almost a guarenteed win. Especially when the academy had stiffed it in 2003 and 2002. So they're just finally giving props. Frankly I see these 11 wins being for the whole series. Since it's really one long movie, chopped into parts. And like JBFF said....Titanic won 11 also, and it sucked arse.
