    I hate the fact to live in a world where Christian Bale or George Clooney are Oscar-winners, but Jake Gyllenhaal (and at this point) Leonardo DiCaprio aren’t. The first two are overrated as fuck and didn’t deserve to win shit for their mediocore performances in mediocore films. 

    Christoph Waltz, Jim Broadbent and Benicio Del Toro were all basically category-cheating themselves for the win, which something I cannot really support. 

    Jared Leto was so fine in HBO-type of vanilla movie “Dallas Buyers Club”, but Barkhad Abdi deserved the win. Period. 

    Morgan Freeman won the Lifetime Achievement Oscar for Supporting Actor over much better performances as Thomas Haden Church’s or Clive Owen’s. 

    And actually, I’m happy Alan Arkin won over Eddie Murphy. He was so much better. 

    My choice is Gyllenhaal losing to Clooney. I will never understand what’s so Oscar-worthy about Clooney playing himself in every one of his movies.

    First things first: I’m sick and tired of the way people treat Alicia and Rooney but nobody is criticizing Christoph Waltz for winning TWICE in supporting for leading roles. Not to mention that his second performance felt like the warmed up leftovers from the first performance. Meh. (And I can’t wait for lead actor to vote for the extremely overrated Daniel Day-Lewis who won instead of a genius performance by Phoenix, but well, Streep and Blanchett get a lot of shit for doing Oscar bait movies but DDL is the king of Oscar bait and nobody is criticizing him for that. I’m getting bitter, so I’ll move on.)

    My personal picks

    2000 — Willem Dafoe (because Del Toro was LEAD)
    2001 — Jim Broadbant (for the fine year he had; McKellen was robbed in 1998, not in 2001)
    2002 — Chris Cooper
    2003 — A pretty weak line-up.
    2004 — Clive Owen
    2005 — William Hurt, Ed Harris was terrific in A History of Violence as well; Clooney was borderline lead and probably the worst winner
    2006 — Jackie Earle Haley!!
    2007 — to me Bardem belonged in lead, I liked Holbrook more than most people
    2008 — Ledger could have won in lead as well
    2009 — an awful category. Plummer was the lead. Waltz was a lead. Tucci was nominated for one of his worst performances when they could honor him for Julie & Julia.. He was simply hamming it up in that mess of a film called The Lovely Bones. And yes, he was ashamed of the clip. Woody.
    2010 — it’s not that I don’t like Bale but Ruffalo deserved this..
    2011 — Plummer deserved this.
    2012 — Waltz is lead and not really deserving. Philip Seymour Hoffman was the best performance. I actually loved Tommy Lee Jones as well.
    2013 — Anybody but Hill who doesn’t belong here. Abdii was my choice.
    2014 — J.K. Simmons is great but Ethan Hawke, Mark Ruffalo and even Edward Norton deserved some attention as well..

    Christoph Waltz was a Supporting Actor in Inglourious Basterds, I agree however he was a co lead in Django and DiCaprio should have gone in Supporting instead and won.

    I preferred Mark Wahlberg to both Alan Arkin & Eddie Murphy that year, Arkin was better than Murphy though.

    Christian Bale deserved to win for The Fighter over Geoffrey Rush, all the others in the poll have good cases for being the biggest academy crime.

    Personally I thought Jim Broadbent winning over Ian McKellen was just unforgivable, one of the best actors ever playing one of the most iconic characters ever losing to Broadbent makes my blood boil.

    With Lord Of The Rings still in mind I always thought that Sean Astin should been nominated in Supporting for ROTK, 2003 had such a weak supporting catergory that he could have at least been nominated.

    PSH losing to Waltz is gross, he shouldn’t have been nominated at all. Neither should Arkin, it should have been Dwight Henry and Redmayne then it would have been a race. 2006 should’ve been Haley without a doubt. I actually like Leto winning but if anyone were to have beaten him should’ve been Fassbender

    Waltz was not leading in Django Unchained. He may have had a lot of screentime, but the lead was Jamie Foxx.

    Sorry bro but Christian Bale might be an asshole but he destroys Jake and Leo when it comes to acting.

    Bale and Leo are my 2 favorite actors but id say they’re even if anything. Bale has roles DiCaprio couldn’t pull off and vice versa

    Are we talking about the same Christian Bale? Oh dear. He’s a really mediocore actor. And he would be pretty happy to be half the actor as the mentioned two. Period. He has no “Nightcrawler” or “Brokeback Mountain”, “The Wolf of Wall Street” or “Catch Me If You Can” and so on. What he has? Hammy “American Hustle”? That’s a Razzie-worthy performance. And what did he do in “The Fighter”? – he was jumping around like an idiot. That was all his performance.

    I tend to either fully agree on Supporting Actor (as in the winner is my favourite of the year), or hugely disagree (Oscar winner doesn’t figure in to my top 5).

    I agreed with JK Simmons (who didn’t?), Jared Leto (though Gosling was up there for Place Beyond The Pines), Christian Bale and, obviously, the iconic Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight.

    Conversely, I went for Ewan McGregor (The Impossible) over Waltz’s 2nd, Alan Rickman (Deathly Hallows Pt 2) over Plummer, and I backed Stanley Tucci in The Lovely Bones over Waltz’s 1st (both were quite terrifying, but Tucci sent shivers down my spine so much it made my skin crawl).

    For this poll, I went for Gyllenhaal over Clooney’s win. Clooney was on the overdue train, and went straight past Gyllenhaal who was patiently waiting at best performance station!

    I’d say Mark Wahlberg losing to Alan Arkin. Love Eddie Murphy, but Wahlber’g role in The Depahh-ted was so memorable.

    I’m going with Phoenix, who was truly the MVP of that film.

    Leonardo DiCaprio not even getting a nomination for Django Unchained is probably the worst of past 15 years easily.

    I couldnt vote in this poll because, although I have mixed feelings about some of them, I’m ok with their wins.

    As for Bale, he lost a lot of weight for The Fighter (as he has before, up and down) and it’s taken a toll on his health. If nothing else, I’d call that a commitment to his craft. I’m not a particular fan of that Batman “lisp”, but overall, I think he’s a terrific actor.
