The Oscars and awards season

The hosts of Movie Geeks United talk their predictions for this year’s Oscars.

They discuss the awards in general, specifically whether “great films” actually win Oscars, saying that “Argo wasn’t a great film; The Artist wasn’t a great film… The Hurt Locker wasn’t a great film; it was a significant film… the last film that won an Oscar that was a great film was the Coen brothers’ No Country For Old Men.” They also point out Goodfellas losing to Dances With Wolves, as well as the danger of “awards fatigue” setting in before the Oscar.
