Most of those awards were in the special effects department. Didn't really win anything related to acting or writing. Didn't even win Best Picture.

It was extremely well-reviewed. Bullock's performance was highly praised. Myself personally I felt it was a bit overrated but I still enjoyed it. Though it felt more like a theme park ride than a movie.

One cool thing about it from a cinematography perspective is some of the extremely long continuous shots... almost on par with those in Children of Men but less impressive IMO since Gravity is pretty much all CGI.

Birdman, which *did* win Best Picture, was interesting in part because the entire movie is a single shot. Or at least edited together in such a way as to appear to be.

In space, I would be dead because I do not own a spacesuit. However, I am alive, therefore we are not in space. However you still can't hear me, because you are only seeing the letters on the screen. So, you still know my thoughts on the matter.

Grease is from the 1970s, and there is nothing in the movie to suggest that it is set in a different time. There are musicals such as Hairspray that goes out of its way to emulate the music of the time it is supposed to be set in, whereas Grease never does this (with the exception of a single song, Beauty School Drop Out) - so the 1950s clue will only throw people (whether it's set then or not).

I agree that "Grease" is from the 70's (1978 to be exact), but after that I think you may have seen a different movie. The cars, the clothes, the hair - everything about is says 1950's. Mentioning '50's celebrities like Sandra Dee, Troy Donahue, and Elvis happen all through the movie. Could you possibly be confusing it with "Saturday Night Fever"? John Travolta was in both.

Lots of the original songs have a 50s vibe. Summer Lovin' with its shuda-bop-bops, Magic Changes which is literally about a certain kind of 50s chord progression, the rock n' roll of Greased Lightning. The 70s stuff only comes from a few songs they added for the film, especially Grease Is The Word. It's still very 50s though in the music and for all the reasons mentioned above.

Reminds me of Dirty Dancing, set in the 60s but with a weird mix of eras in the music. Always makes me chuckle at the end when Billy starts the 60s record player and the super-80s I've Had The Time Of My Life starts playing...

This might be pedantic, and I haven't seen the movie or read the book in a while, but I don't think Daisy (the girl who commits vehicular manslaughter in The Great Gatsby) was the girlfriend of Jay Gatsby himself. She was his ex-girlfriend and Gatsby was still in love with her. That was actually an important plot point, because it's the reason why Gatsby took the blame for the hit-and-run incident instead of revealing that Daisy was the one behind the wheel.
