Academy Best Picture goes to Hurt Locker

Posted by Junichi Kawagoe on 09.2010 News Out of English Newspaper   0 comments   0 trackback
Iraq war film "The Hurt Locker" has won this year's Academy Award for best picture.

The 82nd Academy Awards, the film industry's biggest
ceremony of the year, took place in Hollywood, Los Angeles on Sunday.

"The Hurt Locker" depicts the suspense and pressures of an American bomb-disposal squad in Iraq in 2004, the year after US President George W Bush officially declared the end of major combat operations.

The film won 6 Oscars, including best director, original screenplay and film editing. Director Kathryn Bigelow became the first woman to win the top distinction.

Despite the absence of top Hollywood actors, the film, with its hair-raising suspenseful moments and portrayals of the cruel tragedies of war, has won all 3 major US critic group prizes, and has been highly acclaimed.

The 3D blockbuster "Avatar" won 3 Oscars for visual effects, art direction and cinematography, but its director, James Cameron, failed to win Best Picture or Best Director as he had with "Titanic" in 1997.

Meanwhile, "The Cove", a film which criticized the dolphin hunting operations in a town in Wakayama, western Japan, was chosen Best Documentary.

The Academy Award winning documentary "The Cove" was filmed over three years starting in 2005 in the town of Taiji, western Japan.

The footage includes scenes of traditional dolphin hunting in a hidden cove and the processing of the marine mammal's meat.

After receiving the award, the director of the film, Louie Psiloyos, and the production staff held a news conference.

Psiloyos said the purpose of the film was to eliminate dolphin hunting as a source of food, and denied that his intent was Japan-bashing.

In Taiji Town, the filming had caused frequent problems between the film crew and a local fishery cooperative association.

The association has asked the film's Tokyo distributor to cancel the documentary's release in Japan, saying the hunting scenes were shot without permission.

The fishery association also said the mercury levels that the film insists are contained in dolphin meat are incorrect.
