Gold Derby Award winners: 'The Hurt Locker,' Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep

March 6, 2010 |  6:27 pm

"The Hurt Locker" won the most Gold Derby Awards bestowed by posters in our forums -- best picture, director (Kathryn Bigelow), film editing and cinematography. Most interesting among the results was Meryl Streep's victory over Sandra Bullock for best lead actress. Is that a hint at what might occur at the Oscars?

DISTRICT 9 is not even nominated in the Best Make-Up category. How is it going to win that award then?

...and just why is it a surprise that Meryl Streep beat Bull-ock???? True talent will win over nonsense evety single time. Bull-cok is COMPLETELY out of her league...not only with Streep of course but with all four of the other nominees...Bulloock is a joke...plain and simple....THAT'S WHY SHE LOST.. but take, she does now have a title...Worst Actress of the Year!

It's some really great insight of how a feature really gets made. A film financier named Jeff Steele wrote it.
