That's why Zero Dark Thirty is an Oscar frontrunner...
Author Bret Easton Ellis wrote on Twitter that the only reason director Kathryn Bigelow gets critical acclaim is because she's a "hot woman".
He wrote: ""Zero Dark Thirty might win critics awards but Silver Linings Playbook will win the Best Picture Oscar. This is how it always happens. Kathryn Bigelow would be considered a mildly interesting filmmaker if she was a man but since she's a very hot woman she's really overrated. Kathryn Bigelow: Strange Days, K-19, The Widowmaker, Blue Steel, The Hurt Locker. Are we talking about visionary filmmaking or just OK junk?"
Bigelow was the first woman to win the Best Director Oscar in 2010 for The Hurt Locker. Her new film about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, Zero Dark Thirty (which stars Jessica Chastain and Kyle Chandler), will be released on December 19.
