At the 82nd Annual Academy Awards ( the thing grabbed each and every individual attention was the movie “THE HURT LOCKER” winning Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director one of the contender running opposite was “AVATAR”

This Thread Explores the possibilities and makes an effort to understand which two of this film deserves the Award in the above mentioned specific categories. The attempt here is two understand the creative and technical aptitude. The Forum will not take personal discrimination on the Academy Jury as on the Film makers.
