At the Academy Awards (Oscars) last night, The Hurt Locker took home the following 6 awards:

  • Best Picture
  • Directing
  • Film Editing
  • Sound Editing
  • Sound Mixing
  • Writing (Original Screenplay)

I didn’t want to set aside 15 hours :P of my time yesterday to watch it, but judging by the winners list, The Hurt Locker really swept the show.

I have not seen the movie yet, but I plan on watching it very soon.  I avoided it up until now because I heard from a lot of people that it was annoyingly inaccurate.  I seem to enjoy other inaccurate movies anyway, so I’m not sure why I chose to listen to people and avoid this one up until now.

There are a few different versions of the movie poster.  I found the one I inserted in this article especially chilling.

Any of you guys that have seen this movie, have an opinion on it?
