Hello folks! Here’s the scope following last week’s Oscar Awards Night, an unexpected result for best picture winner. The Academy members voted 12 Year’s A Slave as Best Picture for this years Oscar Award. But there was a lurking suspicion that the film’s triumph might have had as much to do with its subject matter as its actual quality. Two Oscar voters admitted that this movie is too upsetting to watch but finally voted for it anyway because, given the film’s social relevance, they felt obligated to do so. The report lends weight to the view that cinematic excellence does not always come first at the Academy Awards. 12 Years A Slave also garnered awards such as Best Supporting Actress and Best Screenplay categories at the ceremony.
