Tonight, March 7th 2010…
THE FIRST WOMAN ever was awarded BEST DIRECTOR AT THE OSCARS. Not only did Kathryn Bigelow win but, she beat out her ex-husband, James Cameron whose movies have grossed the most of any films ever made, who has won Oscars left and right, and whose movie Avatar was thought to have trumped every movie ever made.But finally, it was shown, that ‘ about how much money your movie grosses, it’s not about the special effects, or the fact that you are a man….OUR TIME HAS COME, as Barbara Streisand said poignantly…IT HAS...as one of four women to have been nominated for an Oscar as director ever- says it all…(and even though Oscars aren’t the voice of the film industry its just a huge achievement)...
Just perhaps, the reason why Avatar won was because it was a woman directing it. Even with all the hype behind it, as it was the David against the Golith-Avatar/James Cameron, and with its string of awards it had garnered before the Oscars – perhaps, the one thing that sealed the envelope was in fact Kathryn Bigelow. Well, Kathyrn Bigelow and the history that went with her. It was maybe the time when the Oscars thought, hey maybe tonight we too can make history- and their chance was Ms. Bigelow. The 2010 Oscars provided not only a place in the history books but a chance to be the star for a possible motion picture (Nancy Meyers Im sure has already begun the screenplay starring Diane Keaton, Steve Martin and Meryl Streep and perhaps even this time Sandra Bullock)!
2010 IS A NEW DECADE
