    Inglorious Basterd was an amzing film, and Christoph Waltz rightfully won, but do you guys think it should have won more Oscars like Original Screenplay, Director, Picture etc. And also I feel like Melanie Laurent Bradd Pitt and Diane Kruger were all snubbed, do you think they should have been nominated, if yes in what categories, and should they have won?

    I think the right film won Best Picture.  The love for Kathryn Bigelow was unstoppable (and it’s really a shame all of the people who came out for her in 2009 vanished when she turned in an even greater effort in Zero Dark Thirty).  But in hindsight of this year’s Oscars (2012), I would have given Quentin Tarantino the award for Inglourious Basterds and Boal the screenplay award for Zero Dark Thirty.  I think The Hurt Locker deserved its sound awards.  I would have nominated Diane Kruger, who was really good.  I’m interested which film people believe should have won cinematography…I don’t know many people who supported Avatar’s win in that category.  Inglourious Basterds is an absolute ball of a film, hilarious and pure entertainment from beginning to end.  I enjoyed it more than Django, as it felt more complete.

    I love Inglorious Basterds. It was the most fun, and my favorite out of the line-up honestly. It was the Silver Linings Playbook of that year. 
    Melanie Laurent was snubbed. For sure. Brad Pitt wasn’t snubbed, but I wouldn’t mind a nomination.  Diane Kruger was not snubbed…she didn’t really “do” anything in the film to warrent a nod, imo.  

    The thing with that year’s Oscar is that it was basically Avatar vs. The Hurt Locker, the gigantic blockbuster vs. the smaller critics fave. (David vs. Goliath so to speak).  The race was so “exciting” that other films got left in the dust. I personally would have given IB Best Picture.  Imagine the outcry! hahaha

    There was a vocal percentage of people who were outraged and angered by the film, similar to what seems to be happening to The Butler. That’s their right of course. Personally, I found it full of tension, humour, gore, and the film is well crafted. Best Picture? I would have been ok with that. The right person got the acting nomination and I’m not sure I would have added anyone else from the cast, given the choice. On the other hand, skipping both Gyllenhaal and Cruz for both the IB ladies would have been fine.

    It was the year of the woman after all, bless their hearts. How nice of them to think of our capable gender once an epoch or so.

    Btw, ZD30 continues to make me sick, no offense to any fans of the film of course.

    It’s not about the personal preferences. Diane Kurger was the one snubbed. She got a SAG nomination and didn’t make it to the Oscars = Snub. 

    Brad Pitt was just terrible.

    Best movie of that year.

    I think, if pressed, I’d say Un prophete was the ‘best’ film that year, as well as featuring two of the best perfs. Naturally I’m citing Avatar as well, for breaking so much cinematic ground.

    My favorite film from the lineup. Laurent was snubbed (even if it was Kruger who got the precursor attention, Laurent for me gave the better performance). It just barely edges out Hurt Locker and Up in the Air for me. I feel even more comfortable giving this the win over Hurt Locker considering how Bigelow outdid herself with Zero Dark Thirty (though that would be a tough fight with Life of Pi). Waltz deservedly won. This should have been a no-brainer for screenplays and cinematography.

    Strange how the Academy’s love for Holocaust films was almost nowhere to be found regarding this film.

    Whilst Waltz was a worthy winner the film got WAY more noms than it deserved, but it was far superior than that shitfest that was to follow.

    I wish the Academy would stop rewarding his self indulgent rubbish.

    Hurt Locker for me is a great film, one of the 4 or 5 best BP winners, but I know the reason it won was a combination of Academy members non-3D dramas as well as the chance to award a film directed by a woman. The right film won for the wrong reasons (not that Avatar wasn’t mostly a terrific film).

    IB was an unlikely winner, but Weinstein made its chances worse with a dreadful campaign that tried to appeal to Jewish sentiment. Their screening at the Museum of Tolerance (LA’s Holocaust memorial) was one of the most tasteless efforts ever seen – full page ads that weren’t unlike Chill Wills’ ones for The Alamo when he claimed that the descendants of those killed were rooting for him. It didn’t cost Waltz his Oscar, but likely killed off screenplay chances for the film.

    It’s not one of my favorite Tarantino films (I’d put Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown and both Kill Bills above it), but for me it was much better than Django Kills.

    ‘Plan 9 From Outer Space’ is better than ‘Django Unchained’.

    Question: What film deserved to win Cinematography that year?  If not Avatar, Inglorious Basterds, Hurt Locker, White Ribbon?

    For me personally, ‘Pulp Fiction’, ‘Inglorious Basterds’, and ‘Django Unchained’ would’ve all been Best Picture winners. It seems I’m in the minority, lol. I was very happy with the noms for ‘IB’, but would’ve added Melanie Laurent for Best Supporting Actress. I thought she was incredible.

    IB is one of my all time favorite films (which is why i was incredibly dissapointed by DU which I didn’t like). I would have given it:

    Best Picture
    Best Original Screenplay (way better than django)
    Best Supporting Actor
    Best Supporting Actress for Laurent in one of my personal most snubbed performances(Kruger got the SAG nom but that was really it while Laurent actually got a few critics award noms)

    I’d probably give it directing but I’d have to rewatch the films and I don’t really know the tech categories. But I didn’t really think Pitt or Kruger were deserving of noms so I wouldnt have bothered giving them one whereas I probably would have given Laurent the win

    I’m not a big fan of “The Hurt Locker”, so I probably would have given IB BP and director. 

    That whole race was clouded by James Cameron vs. Kathryn Bigelow… and the films themselves took a backseat to all of the petty drama. ZD30’s snub shows that Bigelow was only rewarded because they wanted to choose a girl, and once they did, they didn’t need to nominate her again.

    Zero Dark 30 is a much better film, but even then, it was not BP-worthy in my eyes.

    Inglourious Basterds is Tarantino’s best movie in my opinion, just barely edging out Pulp Fiction. It should have won Picture (it was the best film of 2009), Director, Screenplay and Supporting Actor. Melanie Laurent should definitely have been nominated. Even though I really liked Django Unchained, Mark Boal should have won Original Screenplay in 2012 for Zero Dark Thirty out of those nominated (if given a choice, I would have picked PTA’s script for The Master as the winner that year).

    Basterds really is a brilliant movie. It’s entertaining but interesting and thoughtful and hilarious at the same time.
