    The earlier one reached 530 and replies disallowed, so for whatever reaction is left….

    I wondered if the 12 separate feature films that won was a modern record (earlier years with more awards and often fewer big winners there were often more). Turns out not – 2007 had 14.
    The years between went from 10-12.

    Good for Streisand to be there with the first (?) tie since hers.

    I bailed officially from Awards Daily today.  Too much drama and not enough self-control.  The mods aren’t happy that Riva lost, so one of them posted a pic of Lawrence abd her middle digit, and the other posted this titled article, “Old White Guys Prefer Hot Young Babes”. Lawrence’s Oscar is being devalued by the hour by all the haters out there. I’m done with it all.  They couldve posted a pic of her fall, if they wanted to make her look like an airhead, but the middle finger made the cut, I’m suggesting to provoke a reaction.

    There have been 2 or 3 ties in shorts/doc categories since, where perhaps only a couple hundred people voted and the chances for this were much higher.

    This I believe was only the 3rd tie in categories in which all members voted (might be wrong about that, but close at worst). And one of those ties wasn’t (Beery/March were 3 votes apart, when there were at most a few hundred voters).

    Getting my 8-Ball out and considering how winners will be perceived in the future:

    Argo – weak (believe that Affleck will make much stronger films and people will at least remember Zero Dark Thirty, Amour, and The Master)
    Lee – fine to weak (though Avatar will likely be considered the more important 3D work and others will come) 
    Day-Lewis – OK (likely overshadowed by his Blood performance, and Phoenix will have his fans)
    Lawrence – weak (along the lines of Paltrow and Witherspoon’s wins – surely going to be better in the future)
    Hathaway – hard to tell but probably OK (setting aside personal feelings, she has fans for the crying but I don’t think Les Mis will age well)
    Waltz – liked (solid work in successful Tarantino pics)
     
    So, yeah — not strong.

    Day Lewis winning for Lincoln will be remembered as strong in my opinion. How can you even argue with it??? Everyone was on their feet when he won. It’s shameful to even say he’ll be considered just okay. Seriously, enough with the hating.

    “Enough with the hating.” Octavia Spencer got a standing ovation (as did Bullock) – both performances aren’t often written about as being great wins. How can I argue about it? My guessing that Phoenix’s performance will be remembered as stronger (since The Master’s probably going to be more respected by film enthusiasts) and his work in There Will Be Blood overshadows his other work (including My Left Foot).

    Nice overreaction, though.

    Hating? How so? Please don’t accuse someone of “hating” for simply expressing an opinion you don’t agree with.

    I wasn’t overreacting. You just sound like you’re saying his performance was OK for the sake of being different. Lewis’s win was not only expected, it was deserved and most people agree he was more then deserving. I don’t know anyone who’se talking about The Master like they do Lincoln, and yes that’s your opinion but I’m not going to let a comment like that just slide since I feel Lewis more then deserves accolades and not a comparison to Sandra Bullock.

    Sounds like a ghastly life! Two full-time jobs might suggest a 70+ hour work week. Yuck! I’d prescribe some movies but fast to get this poor dear into some better realities, even if for a few hours.

    In all of the “Chicago” hubbub, there was no mentioning of Martin Richards in the In Memoriam tribute? Tsk, tsk.
