    For me it’s Bill Murray losing for Lost in Translation. It tipified 2 problems I have with the Oscars: the uphill battle comedic performances have in the lead races; and subtle performances getting trumped by more sensational fireworks. Also it’s arguably my favourite performance of all time.

    What’s yours?

    Jean Dujardin beating everyone else in his category. Seriously, The Artist was a nice film, and Dujardin more than earned his nomination. But Clooney, Pitt and Oldman each gave the best performances of their careers that year, and Bardem his second best. I may have put him fourth in the lineup, but this victory is going to age about as well as Roberto Benigni’s.

    Christoph Waltz, Django Unchained. 


    For campaigning a lead performance (IMO) in a supporting category. Foxx and Waltz were co-loads (as were PSH and Joaquin Phoenix in The Master). 

    Dicaprio, had Waltz been categorized as lead, could have won, if nominated against four previous winners.

    It seems like you’re talking about Django Unchained here?

    ‘The LEGO Movie’ not being nominated when it should’ve easily WON. It’s the biggest WTF moment I’ve had since I started watching the nominations ceremony live.

    Milk’s 2 wins,

    Best Actor – Sean Penn won cause of political reasons due to the subject matter in the film, he was good but he didn’t give the performance of the year which Mickey Rourke in The Wrestler did.  

    Best Original Screenplay – This one I feel is worse than the above as this one was purely political, the other nominee’s were so much more deserving than Milk. In Bruge’s should have won over Milk, although I would have at least understood if WALL-E or Happy-Go-Lucky had won.

    – ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ being snubbed for editing while ‘The Dallas Buyers Club’ gets nominated.

    – Sean Penn beats Mickey Rourke for his caricature in ‘Milk’. ‘Milk’ winning screenplay is pretty bad, but it’s not as terrible as…

    – ‘Precious’ winning screenplay, which led to the rise of the film industry’s biggest fraud, Lee Daniels.

    Hmm, interesting question.

    In my opinion, Jim Broadbent’s win for ‘Iris’ in 2002 over Ian McKellen for ‘Fellowship of the Ring’, which was one of the best performances by a supporting actor ever, it went down in history, whereas Broadbent’s character is a mere reminder that he is an Oscar winner.

    Also, Christoph Waltz’s win in 2013 for ‘Django Unchained’ over Tommy Lee Jones’ performance in ‘Lincoln’.
