Well, Peter Jackson has only won 2...so who cares. I don't think Lucas has won an oscar though.

Well, I sure as hell wouldn't give Lucas an Oscar. I'd give him an ice cream cone and a beating with the "stick of creativity".

And sure, it matters. I mean, why not?

Well when you start a thread that is sounding totally like a Lucas bash for the sake of only having a lucas bash.. it should matter.

Just because you can post something, doesn't mean you should. the wording is going to lead for a flame war. Instigating a flame war for the sake of having one seems pointless.

Mind you, I'm not telling you what you can't and can not post. Not being a dictator here or actin' da mod or nothing like that. But the Lucas bashing already happens plenty in star wars threads. Lets enjoy this night for LOTR's awards and not have to go through a Lucas Vs Jackson silly debate.

'Star Wars' (1977) won six Oscars.
'The Empire Strikes Back' (1980) won an Oscar for Best Sound.

this article says 10 though:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertain...lm/2643217.stm

How many did the prequals get?

Then again if you really want to go all out.. How many awards has ILM won? since that is a branch of lucas' creation.. 14. Lucasfilm's feature films have won 17 Oscars and received 56 Academy Award nominations, and its television projects have won 12 Emmy Awards.

So could that be some expansion to what you were looking for?

Ok, it's just that so many are out to just bash Lucas. So you can see why many of us find the question to be nothing more than fishing for flames.

But since you say otherwise, I do believe you. Lucas and Jackson do, in fact, have much in common, from making worldwide, much loved genre trilogies (that both garnered academy notice, Jackson receiving far more) to running and owning their respective technical companies behind those and (I assume with WETA in the future) other films. Fortunately Lucas forgot to rape my childhood, so I can still enjoy his work, even though some of it isn't necessarily great.

Blah, blah, blah, Lucas raped my childhood, blah, blah, blah, Jar-Jar must die, blah, blah, blah, Episode one sucks, blah, blah, blah, no OT no sale, blah, blah, blah.

There, does that cover all the bases of this thread? Good - now lets move on.

Sure. And you decided to post the question the night that ROTK swept the Oscars? Pretty convenient wouldn't you say? This was flame bait from the get go.
