And can I be honest here about the awards? It was so damn nice to see REAL people up on that stage...away from the shmooze, and the image, and the Hollywoodity...
I LOVE Peter Jackson's dress-unsense. I think it's great...go the lack of shoes and the untidy hair. What modesty. I LOVE how he waited until his wife had received her Oscar before he made his final speech for Best Film.
Yes, real people who worked so hard for years on these films (not just NZers either).
I feel like it may have been a turning point for, if not the industry, then at least for the perception of what is eligible for recognition within that industry.
