Boyhood, a 12-year film project created by Richard Linklater—won “the prestigious award,” at the Golden Globes and we’re glad it did. The film starring Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane and Lorelai Linklater is one of the best pictures to come out this year.
And we’re just going to take a guess and say it’s bond to win Best Picture at the Oscars. I mean come on? But there’s some negative news around the corner saying that, if the film does win, two of the hard working producers who played a key-role in the creation of the film will not be allowed the right to go on stage and accept the Oscar because they “technically,” don’t qualify for it.
That’s right. And some people are actually happy about the decision stating:
” It was very noble but it is not producing. Did they get involved in casting? Did they sit out all night on night shoots freezing their asses off? That’s producing.”
But, wait would you have been able to freeze your ass off in the cold if it weren’t for these two people? I’m not sure how I feel about this. We see they are trying to be “noble, trustworthy and honest,” giving credit exactly where it belongs but isn’t this a little harsh?
According to The Academy, it doesn’t matter if they both played a key in financing the film. And some people were upset calling it absolutely “outrageous.”
Well, what do YOU guys all think? Do they deserve credit or has the Academy made the right decision in this case?
