    We all get emotionally involved in rooting for Oscar nominees, then get crushed when they lose. Yeah, I knew that Felicity Huffman would get robbed by Reese Witherspoon in 2005, but when it happened, I was devastated. The defeat broke my heart. I loved Transamerica.

    What about YOU? What Oscar defeat really ripped you up — even if it was obvious that it was going to happen?

    Well, I’ll go back to 2000.

    When A Beautiful Mind defeated The Lord of The Rings, I  didnt cry, but I almost put my foot through my flat screen. Likewise when that same  film beat out every single other nominee in the Adapted Screenplay category, I was ready to puke.

    When Cate Blanchett won for the Aviator over Virginia Madsen in Sideways, I actually did feel like crying, even though I thought I was braced for it.

    Ok, so Philip Seymour Hoffman/Capote defeats Heath Ledger/BBM, I was pissed off. Not that Hoffman didnt do a good job, but I would rather have seen Clifton Collins Jr nominated (and win) from the same film. I was really pulling for Heath that year.

    Memoirs of a Geisha defeating Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire in Art Direction, I was reminded that we’re all suppose to be thankful that a fantasy film like Harry was nominated at all, let alone win. It could have won here, and perhaps it should have.

    Jennifer Hudson defeating every other nominee in her category was upsetting then, even though I thought I was enured by the end.

    Seeing Casey Affleck in the Supporting category was truly upsetting. I couldnt support a win for him because of that, even though I thought he gave the performance of the year, and perhaps the decade.

    I was upset that The Counterfeiters defeated my personal favorite Mongol in FLF, even though I knew Mongol was going to lose.

    Juno winning Screenplay still bugs me to think about.

    I resented every single win by Slumdog Millionaire (sorry Tom), including the one for Cinematography. That was 8 too many.

    Watching The Social Network get the Editing Oscar over Black Swan and The Fighter made me laugh, derisively. That snub to Inception here told the entire story.

    Watching Hazanavicius defeat Woody Allen was no fun at all. No fun.

    Minority opinion, but seeing  A Separation winning over every other nominee caused me to mx another numbing, martini

    Claudio Miranda defeating Roger Deakins truly pissed me off.

    I’ll take a pass on Argo. Not enough room or energy.

    McConaughey beating Ejior bugged me even more after the acceptance speech he gave…..

    Frozen beating both The Wind Rises and The Croods is a bit of a head scratcher, as is it’s box office. Go figure.

    Cuaron, even though I like him as a director, defeating McQueen, is a pukable offense imo.

    The end, for now.

    Amy Adams losing for Junebug. She totally should have won and the person she lost to (Rachel Wesiz) was totally a lead in The Constant Gardner. Hope you love your Oscar, Rachel…

    Just last year, I was pretty devastated when The Hunt lost. It was the first time I really felt strongly about a foreign language film category, and it was my favourite film of last year. I thought The Great Beauty was interesting, but it was such a distant second for me.

    Rachel Weisz deserved to win. BTW, who do you blame for Adams’ other four Oscar losses?

    I think Mads Mikkelsen’s performance was maybe the best of 2013.

    She did. Weisz is an absolutely incredible thespian and perhaps, my favorite. She floored me here.

    I ache every time someone recounts the tale of Judy Garland, wired and prepped to go live on the telecast, in her hospital bed in maternity waiting for her name to be called as Best Actress of 1954 for A Star is Born and then enduring the crew packing the equipment once Grace Kelly won.
