SERVED: I haven't seen Avatar yet and I really have no interest. From what I hear it's just Dances with Wolves in 3d with CGI people. And quite frankly, I don't care for 3D and think it's going to hurt movies rather than help it, especially now that everything under the sun is getting converted to 3D just to make more money.

Back to the Oscars. Going into the Academy Awards last night, I knew inevitably that the big-budget epic would win Best Director and Best Picture against other great films, like The Hurt Locker. As award after award for Sound Editing and Cinematography and all the technical stuff began to roll in, I think everyone watching was wondering, "Why am I staying up until midnight to see a James Cameron speech?" Well there wasn't one because James Cameron's ex-wife, Kathryn Bigelow, took home the Oscar for Best Director for The Hurt Locker! SERVED! It seems like perhaps Avatar would be awarded Best Picture instead... but it wasn't! The Hurt Locker won Best Picture! SERVED!!! It doesn't take millions and millions of dollars and amazing special effects to win- just tell an amazing, powerful story and film it well. Take THAT, CGI!

Think someone should get SERVED? Leave your ideas in the comments section, email me, or hit me up on Twitter or Facebook.

Real surprise for James Cameron, unexpected glee for Kathryn Bigelow, lots of ex-wife jokes on the red carpet at the end of the night... At least Avatar was well represented, if not nominated, for the Best Makeup Awards :-)No comment about Zoe Saltana's dress. eheh
