7. Avatar's message was the reason there was an organized campaign to deny it the Oscar.

Technically and visually, it was a stunning, breakthrough film.

It's message was also powerfully anti-empire, and it showed how the private suits are really running the show. The real villain is the weasel RDC character, not the Gung-Ho General, who at least has the virtue of putting his own life on the line.

I'll agree that there was a cartoonish quality to Avatar, and I would have liked to see more character development. But, it deserved the Best Picture award. It was a far better movie than Titanic.
