The Hangover, Oscar Winning Potential?


There have been whispers among film insiders in Hollywood, that this year's top comedy so far The Hangover (until Bruno hits screens) should and could be one of the nominations for the Best Picture award at next year's Academy Awards.

The Oscars' as they are widely known is considering allowing a 'road trip' style comedy film to be among the usual drama and romance nominations that the Best Picture category generally possesses each year.

This also comes as news that next year's Best Picture award will now have 10 nominations, after major backlash last year over the biggest movie of 2008, The Dark Knight, couldn't even claim a Best Picture nomination at the ceremony. That award went to Slumdog Millionaire.

More on these stories can be found here at the LA Times website and here at News.com.au.
In my opinion I absolutely loved The Hangover and haven't laughed that much in a cinema since Borat, and while the movie probably wont win an Oscar, a nomination is definitely worthy.
I would love to read your thoughts if The Hangover deserves to be up there with Titanic and Slumdog Millionaire as Oscar winners. Comment below.
