Would Moneyball win Oscar this year?


I’m just a little girl lost in the moment
I’m so scared but I don’t show it
I can’t figure it out, it’s bringing me down
I know I’ve got to let it go and just enjoy the show
Just enjoy the show, just enjoy the show

– The last lines of the movie

Brief Review:

7.7 rated on IMDB, 94% fresh (Rotten Tomatoes) with 1,251,544 viewers of just the trailer on Youtube, featured at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival Moneyball  a biographical sports drama film is an account of the Oakland Athletics baseball team’s 2002 season and their general manager Billy Beane‘s (the guy who rejected 12.5M offer)  under whose able guidance A’s Team won 20 consecutive games, an American League record.

This film having Brad Pitt as Beane shows how for the first time in history of Baseball player selection and rejection was done on the basis of mathematics and a scientific approach. It also show how this overcomes the struggle of defeating rich clubs/teams which could buy any player so easily. The good thing about the movie it has perfect balance of baseball and other story for non base lovers to like the movie equally.

The movie is inspirational and positive and worth watching for people who dare to dream. Its not just about winning sometimes but enjoying the every moment of the process.

Nominations received in Academy Awards (6):

Best Picture Nominated
Best Actor Brad Pitt Nominated
Best Supporting Actor Jonah Hill Nominated
Best Adapted Screenplay Aaron Sorkin and Steven Zaillian; Story by Stan Chervin Nominated
Best Film Editing Christopher Tellefsen Nominated
Best Sound Mixing Deb Adair, Ron Bochar, Dave Giammarco and Ed Novick Nominated

Bottom Line: This is something more than just a regular sports movie. Nomination for six Academy Awards and having Brad Pitt is more than worlds can say -:)
