Which academy awards did the LotR trilogy deserve most?

The trilogy won seventeen awards in total (RotK got eleven of those!), if you remember, which out of these do you think the film deserved?

I'd probably say Visual effects nine years ago, but times have moved on in this short space of time haven't they (extremely good then). Makeup however was really, really good, Uruk Hai and Orcs look more than just men with fake skin and teeth, they were really convincing. Music was excellent, I remember the opening scenes of the Fellowship and being amazed by the quality of that.

Btw how is everyone, haven't posted for a while because of examinations, hope you are all keeping well. <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />

(Hey I'll make a thread about possible future awards for the Hobbit movies on the Hobbit topic.)

Interesting topic!

I would have to say these two, though.

Music (Original Score) FOTR (8) ROTK (9)

Definitely the most deserving. <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />

I'm doing fine, by the way!
All 11. :mrgreen:

I tend to judge special effects in light of the time period they were done in. A lot of Star Wars looks fake thirty years down the line (though not as much as one might expect), but it was an immensely impressive and groundbreaking film for when it was made. Likewise The Lord of the Rings is not [i:2tmfmaln]quite[/i:2tmfmaln] as impressive now but it was simply amazing for a film made around the turn of the millennium. I think the SFX have held up well though, and films with better SFX are only just starting to appear, and are a tiny minority of movies.

So in answer to your original question, Visual Effects. :geek: But Best Picture for ROTK is a close second. <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' />

I've been doing well, thanks. :mrgreen: My exams finished a few weeks ago and I've been enjoying the summer. I hope yours went well. <img src='/images/smileys/smile.gif' border='0' alt='Smile Smilie' />
Def music and visual effects. They were both AMAZING!!!!
Cheers for getting back, <img src='/images/smileys/bigsmile.gif' border='0' alt='Big Smile Smilie' /> maybe that was a bit of a false statement Eldorian, I just assumed that they were out of date, when you look closer you realise they're great. I remember the cave troll in The Fellowship being pretty cool, I remember watching it at the cinema, he was really brilliant now I think back. Also, Rivendell obviously didn't exist in real life so the SFX and the camera work must have been a challenge when they only had models to use, although I suppose that wasn't considered a new technique then.

Haha, I think you misread the title, I said which did it [u:e0yuu4hz][b:e0yuu4hz]most[/b:e0yuu4hz][/u:e0yuu4hz] deserve, there’s no question the trilogy deserved them all. <img src='/images/smileys/wink.gif' border='0' alt='Wink Smilie' /> :lol:
