Is there anyone that you think should have won the oscar? It can be from any year.January 22, 2012 at 2:25 pm #52558
Let’s start with last year: Portman, Bale, and Leo should’ve been replaced by Steinfeld, Rush, and Bonham Carter, respectively.January 22, 2012 at 2:29 pm #52559
Bette Davis should have gotton won in 1962, for whatever happened to baby jane.January 22, 2012 at 2:31 pm #52560
^^^What??? And leave the incredible Anne Bancroft Oscar-less??? She 100% deserved that gold for Miracle Worker, IMO.January 22, 2012 at 2:34 pm #52561
I think Bette deserved it more.
I also think that Cate Blanchett should have received it in 1998 for Elizabeth 1January 22, 2012 at 2:55 pm #52562

1963 was one of the best years for Best Actress races. Anne Bancroft’s character is complicated but certainly a lot nobler than Baby Jane, and that is why she won. I don’t begrudge Bancroft at all but I never get tired of hearing Bette shrieking, “But ya AAH Blanche, ya AAH in that chair!
I think Blanchett was as equally good as Streep in 1999, but it was a more showy role, still prefer both to Paltrow.January 22, 2012 at 3:02 pm #52563
Saying that Portman didn’t deserve the Oscar for Black Swan but Bonham-Carter did for The King’s Speech makes me doubt that you actually watched those movies. Portman was destined to whoop up on that category, and Bonham-Carter, as brill as she is, was never going to take down Melissa Leo, Hailee Steinfeld (who deserved it over Leo) or Jacki Weaver, the performance just was’t there. She will be an Oscar winner one day, though.
Peter O’Toole’s turn in Lawrence of Arabia was Oscar-worthy, but he had worthy competition. Saying that Bette Davis deserved it over Anne Bancroft is a crime that deserves punishment.
And yes, Cate Blanchett was by-and-by a deserving winner over Gwyneth Paltrow. The fact that Paltrow has an Oscar makes the award far less prestigious.January 22, 2012 at 3:06 pm #52564
I was rooting all the way for Annette Bening but Natalie Portman earned that Oscar esp. in that devastating final scene. Brilliant work.January 22, 2012 at 3:12 pm #52565
The fact that Tom Hooper has an Oscar before David Fincher, Darren Aronofsky, Christopher Nolan, Paul Thomas Anderson, Jason Reitman, David O. Russell, Rob Marshall and Stephen Daldry is pretty disgraceful.January 22, 2012 at 3:15 pm #52566
As long as Christopher Nolan continues to turn the bat cave into an underground car park, he’ll never win the Oscar. Just sayin’…January 22, 2012 at 3:17 pm #52567
He has said numerous times that he only directed the Batman movies to build up a good reputation and gain experience in the production of large-scale, non-independent pictures. Once he completes his contractual (and moral) obligation of finishing the Batman series, he will move onto more amazingly complex films such as Inception.January 22, 2012 at 3:17 pm #52568
Terrence Malick should have an Oscar by now.
Scorsese instead of Robert Redford, for his work in “Raging Bull”, of course.
Orson Welles too, obviously. He won screenplay for “Citizen Kane”, but he should’ve won Director and Picture too.
And of course, no wins for Hitchcock or Kubrick in Directing are pretty baffling.January 22, 2012 at 3:18 pm #52569
Ralph Fiennes for Schindlers List over Tommy Lee Jones
Tommy Lee Jones for JFK over Jack Palance
Jack Palance for Shane over Frank Sinatra
James Woods for Salvador over Paul Newman
Paul Newman for Hud over Sidney Poitier
Paul Newman for The Verdict over Ben Kingsley
Ben Kingaley for The House of Sand and Fog over Sean Penn
Just some examples…January 22, 2012 at 3:18 pm #52570
Funny, I would have guessed NOLAN did it for the MONEY
