The panel will always go for the more dramatic movie because that's the only thing they like. That's why I think 12 Years A Slave won over Gravity last year. I know not many people here liked it, but I was completely taken away by the movie.

I wonder if a horror film will ever get another best picture nomination. Has the genre become low-brow again? I remember Silence of the Lambs won it when it was released.

Raegan,

Pleased to meet you.

In your profile you wrote: "I hate Eli Roth." In addition to hating Eli Roth do "you hate wickedness"? -Psalm 45:7.

Thanks,
Glen

Not sure if anyone else has received any emails just FYI

I received a private message with some bible verse and I just deleted it. I hate that shit. ::mad::

I'm really disappointed with the golden globes... nothing terribly interesting was nominated, and some of the winners were complete bullshit. How to Train Your Dragon 2 was the most bullshit winner I've seen in any sort of awards show, and The Lego Movie was robbed. Interstellar should have won for Best Original Score, and the fact that Annie was nominated for anything just goes to show how "seriously" we should take this.

I stopped watching the award shows many, many years ago because I never agree with them most of the time. They started becoming bullshit a very long time ago.

Gravity was a horrible movie. I was soo bored and it was just senseless. IMO, the film was a complete waste of time.

I agree! It doesn't make sense because there have been some really great thriller/horror movies out there!!

It would have to be really something special for that to happen... I hope it does happen again in the future.

Not even Let the Right One In(swedish version) won and that was the best movie to come out that year. Period. Imho ::mad::

Horror don't need no awards. That stuff's just marketing anyway. The horror genere is already mainstream enough as it is.

Not really.... horror has kind of a niche audience.

I have a few movies I need to rewatch since the last time I watched them, I was more focused on if they scared me, and now I kinda don't care if it scares me or not.
