Awards For Hurt Locker Dropping Like Bombs
Everywhere Kathryn Bigelow turns these days there’s another accolade for her much applauded war movie, The Hurt Locker.
IndieWire has reported the results from the National Society of Film Critics awards where the Hurt Locker picked up the award for best picture, beating out Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds.
Bigelow bested indie darling Wes Anderson for best director and Locker’s leading man Jeremy Renner also came up trumps in the best actor category leaving Nicholas Cage out in the cold.
Aside from the critic and indie awards, Locker has also earned mainstream acclaim with a few Golden Globe nominations for best picture, director and screenplay by Mark Boal.
After already winning, oh, I don’t know, a million awards at every film festival going, we anticipate that this is just the tip of the iceberg for Bigelow and her war boys as the Oscar campaigns will start to pick up right about now.
We’re hoping it does well come awards time because we’re already a little sick of hearing about Avatar.
