Re: Avengers Assembled: News and Speculation - - - Part 69
Avengers was expected to make a lot of money and it did. Another important point is that it was not a big dumb movie where the director and studio put forth a movie with high production values and good cgi, a lot of action with a weak plot and bad acting. While the Transformers is filled with all of that and is very successful Battleship was not. Avengers had rousing action, good plot and well developed characters that did not insult the moviegoers intelligence. All the elements coming together in this genre or similar genres can be rare. Do I feel that Avengers deserved a best picture nod? No. But I think it should have been nominated in more than one category.
