One would think that as we got closer to the present, I would have heard of most of these foreign film winners, but that's not the case. Not only have I not seen the great majority of them, this is the first I'm hearing of many of them. :unsure:

I like to think of the name Best Picture as encompassing everything about a production. I just thought that Tom Hooper did a better job of putting those elements together.

I want to address a couple of my more unusual choices.

 

First off is Ashley Bell from The Last Exorcism, a rather lackluster supernatural horror film that's part of the lamentable "found footage" subgenre, wherein the movie is made to appear to be amateur home video, security footage, or as in the case here, raw footage from a documentary in progress. Patrick Fabian stars as a former minister who is making a film to debunk the notion of demonic possessions and exorcisms as being real. He travels to a rural farm where the family's daughter (my nominee Ashley Bell) is supposedly possessed. Bell is very believable as a young woman who was brought up in a very sheltered environment and who starts to come out of her shell in the presence of the ex-minister and his film crew. She's also compelling in the possession scenes, and she made quite an impression on me. The movie's not very good, but she is. She is the sole lead in the follow-up sequel, which is also presented as a straightforward narrative, without the found footage gimmick.

 

lastexorcism-09.jpg

 

Secondly, there's Dolph Lundgren, perhaps my most unlikely nominee in this entire thread. Lundgren has been called a lot of things over his 30 year career, but a good actor is not one of them. And yet, somehow, he manages to turn in a terrific performance in The Expendables, the tongue-in-cheek paean to 80's action films and their stars. The film follows a group of grizzled mercenaries as they embark on a dangerous mission in a foreign country. Lundgren plays the team's most unpredictable member, and he manages to steal every scene he's in. He's funny, he's scary, and the audience isn't sure if he's going to end up being a bad guy or a good guy with really sketchy morals. I've seen a lot of Lundgren's movies, and they're almost universally terrible, as is he in them (that's why I watch them: they're very often unintentionally hilarious). But here he shows genuine talent, so perhaps his years of DTV schlock have given him some good working experience. When this film was being made, stories circulated that Sylvester Stallone, who directed and starred in the film, was especially hard on Lundgren, demanding multiple takes and verbally berating Lundgren if he delivered less than 100%. It seems to have worked. Besides being in better physical shape than any of his contemporaries, Lundgren's career is also doing well. Along with his assembly-line action flicks, he had a tiny role in last year's Hail, Caesar! from the Coen brothers, and has a featured role in next year's big-budget Aquaman movie.

Out of curiosity, if you didn't choose The King's Speech for best picture or for the best performances, why would you choose Hooper as best director?


Both Brokeback Mountain and Born on The Fourth of July won Best Director without winning any of the other prizes that you mentioned.
