VATICAN CITY (AFP) — The Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano lamented Monday the fact that Hollywood chose to honour films that were “without hope” and violent at Sunday’s Oscars ceremony.

“Hollywood was moved this year by films that were sober, full of violence and above all without hope,” said the paper, referring to “No Country for Old Men” by brothers Joel and Ethan Coen and “There Will be Blood” by Paul Thomas.

“No Country for Old Men” won the best picture Oscar at the 80th Academy Awards late Sunday while Daniel Day-Lewis won best actor for his role in “There Will be Blood.”

“A sign of the times? Probably,” wrote journalist Gaetano Vallini in the newspaper, who praised “Juno” by Jason Reitman about “a story of a teenager who decides to follow through with an undesired pregnancy.”
