Hi everyone,

The Academy Awards were on again.

The Hurt Locker, about US bomb disposal soldiers in Iraq, took out 6 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Director.

The director, Kathryn Bigelow, is the first woman to ever win Best Director at the Academy Awards.

She also was up against her ex-husband James Cameron.

The Hurt Locker cost $11 million to make while Avatar cost $237 million.

That goes to show, a big budget doesn’t mean a good film.
