    O my the 80s……

    PICTURE

    The Last Emperor (sue me bitches)

    Amadeus

    Ordinary Elephant People

    Attenborough

    Terms of Endearment (for Shirley)

    ….the rest all have their stellar moments, but I dont prefer one over the other that much.

    DIRECTOR

    Beatty

    Burtolucci

    Forman

    Stone: he ties himself. Both films have worthy elements

    Redford, Attenborough and Brooks. Tied. Nice families.

    Levinson

    Pollack; kill more lions

    ACTOR

    De Niro      Unbelievably good

    OMG everybody is soooo fantastic!

    Guess I’ll put Duvall and Douglas at the end.

    ACTRESS

    Streep. Noone else can touch here this decade, last decade, or the 80’s.

    Hmmm..most of the others are stellar too. MacLaine, whom I adore, is next.

    Marlee is at the bottom.

    Will finish later. Must eat now. Lol.

    ETA:

    SUPPORTING ACTOR

    Kevin Kline                   He’s so hilarious, and his timing is perfect. So great seeing a comedic perf win!

    Haing S Ngor               An Asian winner. And he’s worthy! A first for an Asian male I believe. Wish he had lived.

    Timothy Hutton             He’s spectacular

    Michael Caine              ditto

    Denzel Washington      He’s unforgettable here

    John Gielgud                Very happy for him; and his character, is spectacularly droll, and touching too

    Jack Nicholson             Ride that beach baby

    Louis Gossett Jr           A type, and did it terrifically. He didnt get himself shot in the chest anyways….

    Don Ameche                 Sure. Finally.

    Sean Connery             Ok Sean. Thanks again for being such a great Bond.

     

    SUPPORTING ACTRESS

    Oh-oh….

    Peggy Ashcroft                            Because. Here’s someone who could have several statues on her mantel.

    Dianne Wiest                               Iconic

    Mary Steenburgen                       Tap baby Tap

    Linda Hunt                                   ” She’s” mighty fine.

    Maureen Stapleton                      She’s ALWAYS good; no exception here.

    Anjelica Huston                            Same.

    Olympia Dukakis                          Sublime. “Why do men cheat?” I could tell her why…..and not because they’re ‘afraid of death’ either.

    Brenda Fricker                              Been watching for her ever since. Absolutely terrific perf

    Geena Davis                                click sweetheart, click

    Jessica Lange                              Really loved her in this part. Is she “supporting”? I dunno…..

     

    SCREENPLAY

    Adapted

    Amadeus                                     Complex and unflinching

    The Last Emperor                        Because

    Terms of Endearment                  One of the best of it’s genre

    Missing                                        A must

    Ordinary People                          Unforgettable

    A Room With a View                   A subtle masterpiece

    Driving Miss Daisy                       Ditto

    Dangerous Liasons                     Interesting

    On Golden Pond                         A thank you for this collective cast

    Out of Africa                                Well, you can stay OUT too

     

    ORIGINAL

    Hannah and Her Sisters            Well well; a very intelligent screenplay

    Witness                                      A terrific fishoutofwater story

    Moonstruck                                Thank you, John Patrick Shanley

    Melvin and Howard                    An original!

    Gandhi                                       Would have rather seen ET win here but….this needed to be made.

    Chariots of Fire                          It’s Vangelis all the way, but the screenplay keeps things ‘running’ along

    Dead Poets Society                   Nice, but either Sex Lies and Videotape (Soderbergh’s best imo) or Crimes and Misdemeanors or Do The Right Thing could have won here, with ‘better’ screenplays….

    Rain Man                                    Very besmirched. Not sure why.

    Places in the Heart                     A truly wonderful screenplay throughout

    Tender Mercies                          Quite happy for Tom Hagen; not so much for the score.

     

    My personal winner might have been Reds.

    Animated: Who Framed Roger Rabbit,  Special Achievement Award

     

    FLF

    Fanny and Alexander, Sweden

    The Official Story, Argentina

    Babette’s Feast, Denmark

    Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears, USSR

    To Begin Again, Spain

    Mephisto, Hungary

    Dangerous Moves, Switzerland

    The Assault, The Netherlands

    Pelle the Conqueror, Denmark

    Cinema Paradiso, Italy

    All very different, all worth the watch.

    I really envy those of you who’ve had the (life)time to watch all of these. I’ll simply post my no. 1s from those I have seen.

    Picture: Amadeus
    Director: Milos Forman  Amadeus
    Actor: Robert De Niro  Raging Bull
    Actress: Meryl Streep  Sophie’s Choice
    Supporting Actor: Kevin Kline  A Fish Called Wanda (though I don’t think he’s supporting, really – ‘Fish’ is a 3-lead film. The bestsupporting actor was Michael Palin.)
    Supporting Actress: Linda Hunt  The Year of Living Dangerously (one of the best ever wins in this category, and not just for the stunt casting)
    Original Screenplay: Hannah and Her Sisters
    Adapted Screenplay: Dangerous Liaisons
    Foreign Language Film: Fanny and Alexander – it pisses me off that the actors branch couldn’t be bothered with this film, as its performances are one of the greatest things about it. (The same applies to Bergman’s earlier Oscar-nominated film, Cries and Whispers.) Mephisto is also excellent, with a central performance by Klaus Maria Brandauer which deserved to win Best Actor. (He later got a supporting nom for Out of Africa.)
