    For Cate Blanchett, she should use the scene with the two little nephews at the diner. The picture on my avatar is her in that scene. And the quote in my signature is from that scene. Utterly brilliant. She also does this wonderfully loopy thing where her left eye twitches ever so slightly as she slips into one of her “spells.”

    None of the predictable, meme-staples.

    Live and Let die would be the worst clip to be shown. The ‘i hate change’ scene or part of the bathroom scene would be perfect.
    For Blanchett, ‘Erica’ is exhausted; any of the other viable dozens. Anything from the doulbe-date sequence in particular would be gold.
    Adams – any of the non-flirty scenes with Bale.
    Leto – any but the ‘i dont’ want to die’ 
    Hawkins – the final argument with Jasmine would be perfect

    I hope each ceremony showcases different scenes.

    Yes, Sally Hawkins’ argument with Jasmine at the end is her Oscar clip,

    Bruce Dern –
    Chiwetel Ejiofor –
    Judi Dench –
    June Squibb –
    Lupita Nyong’o –
    Michael Fassbender –
    Sandra Bullock –

    I like your list, so I thought I’d fill in what I would do here
    Bruce Dern – Where he talks about his drinking problem
    Chiwetel Ejiofor – The scene where he breaks his violin (But they’ll probably do the “I don’t want to survive” scene)
    Judi Dench – Where she forgives the nun (Or the one where she suggests they watch Big Momma’s House, because it’s hilarious)
    Lupita Nyong’o –  When Sarah Paulson throws the vase at her
    Michael Fassbender – The scene where he chases Ejiofor
    Sandra Bullock – The dog scene

    Leto’s should be the one where he talks to his dad. 
    That scene was heartbreaking

    Remember last year when there was only one scene in the entire Lincoln in which Daniel Day-Lewis emoted, so that clip got played over and over again at all these award shows?

    Lupita Nyong’o – should be when she asks Solomon to kill her, but they’ll probably do the soap scene
    Sandra Bullock – When she talks about her daughter or “one helluva ride”
    Chiwetel Ejiolfor – At the funeral when he joins in on the singing
    Jennifer Lawrence – should be her “i don’t like change” scene but they’ll probably go with something funny

    This is usually the worst part of the Oscar ceremony – I find the whole idea of reducing performances to clips of histrionic one-upmanship to be vulgar and cringy. Because they use the most dramatic scenes, they spoil the movies for those who haven’t seen them yet, who would benefit from seeing these scenes in their proper context. Remember Best Actress last year? The scenes picked for Chastain, Lawrence and Riva were some of the most striking in each of their films, but taken out of context they merely seemed like two temper tantrums and a old lady getting slapped round the face.

    If they have to show clips, they should choose significant early scenes which merely suggest the calibre of the performance as a whole rather than giving it all away – it might actually get people interested in seeing the films.

    Chiwetel Ejiofor: “I will not fall into despair”

    His singing at the funeral is amazing but out of context it will just seem weird. You need to see what came before in order to understand why it is so powerful.

    I love the clips.  Just imagine how many people have not seen the nominated films.

    Without the clips, the camera goes to the nominees for one second each and uneducated viewers are none the wiser about what films they should be seeking out and if they blink, who was even nominated.

    The “I will survive” speech is almost undoubtedly the one that they will use for Ejiofor.  The singing scene is only good in context and I do not think that they would go for something so blatantly at the end of the film with his tearful reunion.

    The scene that they picked for Chastain was so awful, but again, like Day-Lewis, it was the one scene where she really emoted, so they probably thought that it was their only option.

    No matter what they choose for Streep, that clip will be a powerhouse and the loudest of them all.
