I agree with everything Lili said about french language and acting in french in IB. Actually, every single one of my friends who's seen IB in Original Version agreed to say Melanie Laurent wasn't great at all, and Jacki Ido is even worse. Daniel Bruhl's friench acting was alright thought, and I really like this actor since I've seen IB.
To go back to the Oscars, as always, we have 1 movie that wins half of the prizes. I haven't seen The Hurt Locker yet, so maybe it's worth everything it has won. Hell, even IB didn't deserve 6 Oscars.
IB"s screenplay though, languages apart, should have won. The idea alone deserves something. I'm glad Waltz got a statue, but that shouldn't be all.
Since I started "caring", or getting info about the Oscars, and other ceremonies, I'm under the impression that the jury or academy or whatever, they only watch like 10 movies, that were advised to them. And they nominate every single one of them in each category. I despise them for not nominating more movies. It was the same for our french Cesar's ceremony. Watching it, you're under the impression that they were less than 10 worthy french movies in a whole year. It's so wrong, I'm glad that for 1, I don't really care about all that, and 2 I'm not into the business. Because it can't be hard to beat Un Prophète in, at least, 2 or 3 categories it won a César. I'd be so pissed to be a director or to have worked in a more worthy movie and that the only thing I'd be able to do is consider how overlooked it was (or even not watched at all, which is more likely).
I don't know if it all makes sense. Drunk + Passionate posting isn't a good equation usually.
