Golden Compass beat Transformers at the Oscars
Iorek Byrnison vs Optimus Prime...
I usually check out the Oscar's winners list every year to look for good movies and guess what?
The 80th Annual Academy Award's Best Visual Effects went to THE GOLDEN COMPASS. Beating Transformers and Pirates of the Caribbean 3!!!
CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT?
Seriously I dig Iorek Byrnison(the bear) for his masculinity! But better visual effects than TRANSFORMERS? What happened to Optimus Prime?
I admit that in the movie Transformers, during the action part, the robots were all over the screen at high speed, hence we can't really focus too detail on the rendering but in The Golden Compass, I don't think it deserves to be the BEST.
I tried to do some research on the way they judge in the Oscars and found this article saying that they usually go for the politically correct ones but since The Golden Compass raised a lot of issues among the Christian community, why did they get the awards?
Is it a way of telling the world that they're in DECEIVING since the effects is good? Or is it to show the world they don't only let the politically correct win?
Discuss and tell me in the comments section? Do you guys feel the same or you beg to differ?
