The Oscars are long done and the victor has been chosen.
According to Hollywood, the best film of 2009 was “The Hurt Locker,” a gritty war film about a man who disarms bombs for a living in modern day Iraq.
Going into the Oscars, it looked as if the only other film to beat it would be
“Avatar,” a sci-fi movie about a paraplegic ex-marine who travels to a faraway planet named Pandora in the distant future.
