The producer of the hot indie film “Hurt Locker” has been banned from the Oscars.Â Nicolas Chartier has had his invitation rescinded because he sent out an email to Academy Award judges, which is highly prohibited.
The movie is up for multiple awards, and has already won multiple awards.Â If the producer’s actions are as bad as they sound the Hurt Locker could be hurting.
It will be interesting to see if this incident will make it so that Avatar gets more awards than Hurt Locker.Â Both are up for multiple Oscars, and the ironic thing is that James Cameron used to be married to the director of Hurt Locker.
The producer’s emails read that his movie is about the Iraq war and not just some $500MM film.Â This cast a negative light on a competing film, and is the center of the big part of the controversy.
The picture has not been removed from the category for “Best Picture”, but there are many doubts cast on whether or not Hurt Locker will win.
