The Iraq war drama leads the current pack of winners with four gongs, grabbing the latest one for Best Editing category which is presented to Bob Murawski and Chriss Innis.
It seems that "The Hurt Locker" and "Avatar" are running to be the biggest winner at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards. After the James Cameron-directed sci-fi collects equal number of kudos to the Iraq war film with its third win for Best Visual Effects, the Kathryn Bigelow-directed movie wins its fourth award, making it lead the pack of winners so far.
The latest prize garnered by "The Hurt Locker" comes from Best Achievement in Editing category which is presented by Tyler Perry. Taking the award, Bob Murawski states, "And thank you to the Academy for giving this award to a movie that was made without compromise," while his partner Chriss Innis simply adds, "Everybody. We love you guys."
The ceremony has also unveiled the winner for Best Foreign Language Film, giving the honor to Argentina movie "El secreto de sus ojos" ("The Secret of Her Eyes"). Making an unusual acceptance speech, director Juan Jose Campanella jokes while referring to "Avatar", "I want to thank the Academy for not considering Na'vi a foreign language."
The 2010 Academy Awards is currently held at Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles and multiple winners "The Hurt Locker", "Avatar", "Up" and "Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire" are still facing off each other for Best Motion Picture of the Year prize.
