Times Changing? (The Oscar’s)

March 8th, 2010

I didn’t watch the Oscar’s last night, but I was happy to read on Fox News that Sandra Bullock won Best Actress for her performance in The Blindside. It was an awesome film, and Sandra did an amazing job at playing a southern girl, right down to the accent. I am a southern girl so I should know.

What I did find interesting is that the first woman director EVER won an Oscar last night, and incidentally that same film won for best picture, The Hurt Locker. Until I saw it nominated for the Oscar, I’ll admit that I’d never heard of it, but I’m curious how many of you saw it and what your impression was?

You have to give kudos to Kathryn Bigelo for being the first woman EVER to win the best director Oscar. In 82 years, that’s definitely saying something. It’s great to see that women are also finally being recognized for great directing work, and I have to wonder if times are changin’ in Tinseltown. What do you think?
