Do The Oscars Even Matter?

Do The Oscars Even Matter?

Right before the film's wide release both Boal and Bigelow spoke up, he at a talk at Loyola Marymount University, she in the LA Times and The Tonight Show. But it appears the damage was done. On Oscar night, Zero Dark Thirty is up for five nominations: Best Achievement in Editing, Best Achievement in Sound Editing, Best Performance for an Actress in a Leading role, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Picture. But those of us following the Oscars closely aren't optimistic for Zero Dark Thirty taking any of them.

Speaking to the film's response, Boal has offered, "We made a serious, tough adult movie and we got a serious, tough adult response. Not all of it was honest and not all of it was fair and not all of it was correct. But at the end of the day it all comes with the territory."

The Academy Awards producers do not want you to enjoy an anticipated reunion of the men who’ve played secret agent 007 over the years, as it has now been confirmed that the tribute to the 50-year-old franchise during Sunday’s Oscars telecast will not gather the former Bonds together in one spot. Speaking to Deadline ahead of the telecast, co-producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron opened up about plans for the show, saying:“It’s something else, something very unique and very exciting but no, we’re not getting the Bonds together.”

[b][url=http://watchdiehard5on]Watch Die Hard 5 Online[/url][/b] Did the idea sound too good to be true? We wrote about the possibility of reuniting the Bonds on stage as the franchise celebrates five decades. Can you think of anything more exciting than seeing every generation of 007 on the same stage, drinking in the applause of appreciative Bond fans in attendance at the Oscars? Maybe the egos are too large, and the men who played Bond over the years – from Sean Connery to Daniel Craig – refused to share the spotlight? TMZ ran a story citing Pierce Brosnan as the holdout. We won’t really know until we see what the Oscars ends up doing instead, but pour cold water on that hope of a Bond reunion, because it isn’t happening.

[b][url=http://watchbeautifulc]W atch Beautiful Creatures Online[/url][/b] Zadan and Meron swear that the entire show will be about entertaining the audience in addition to honoring the Oscar nominees. Anything will be an improvement over the experiment from two years ago with Anne Hathaway and James Franco as uncomfortable co-hosts. The Academy Awards air on Feb. 24. Are you disappointed the Bonds won’t reunite on stage? Share your thoughts below.

At the height of all that publicity Universal and Focus Features picked up the rights to the book… but development on the film has been curiously quiet ever since.
