Are you kidding me? The Hurt Locker was horrible. "Son as you get older, you'll find that there are only a couple things in life that you truly love. For me one of those things is war..." Gimme a break, it didn't deserve best picture.
Not that Avatar was deserving of it either, I think it won the awards it should have except for best director, but there had to be something better than Hurt Locker out there.
