    Judy losing to Grace Kelly is certainly near the top of my list of Oscar Outrages. “Braveheart” winning Best Picture belongs up, up, up there too. And, of course, the point of my siggie photo below is enough to make any Oscarologist weep.

    Your turn.

    I like Goldie’s win for Cactus Flower. I love the movie and her in it. I honeslty can not imagine any of those others winning for those performances.

    Outrage wise I would say Crash over Brokeback Mountain is by the far the biggest mistake in Academy history.

    The number one outrage is Alfred Hitchcock never winning best director. For me, nothing else comes close.

    Out of all Oscar winners, you are against Goldie Hawn, Tom? That’s sad. I believe that this win was really justified and she’s very talented performer.

    Nothing against Geena Davis but I would never put her above Michelle Pfeiffer and Sigourney Weaver for that particular performances.

    I know that Judy Holliday has several supporters and she’s very worthy of a nomination but both Gloria Swanson and Bette Davis gave iconic performances that hold up very, very well.

    Richard Burton and Peter O’Toole never winning.

    Katharine Hepburn winning for “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” despite being least deserving out of the group of very memorable performances.

    I know it was a given but “Forrest Gump” winning Special Effects over “Mask” and “True Lies” and Best Picture over “Pulp Fiction”.

    Paul Nemwan not getting nominated for “Sweet Bird of Youth”.

    @ allaboutoscars: I agree with some of the people u listed (Marlee Matlin and Gwyneth Paltrow in aprticular) but some people on that list like Whoopi and Reese totally derved their oscars. Yes Sandra won hers for an OK movie but she made that movie what it was with her perfomance.

    Well, arent the Oscars an “outrage” every year?

    I’ll pick Juno’s screenplay win. Unbelievable.

    Crash over Brokeback Mountain and Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny) over Judy Davis (Husbands & Wives) are the first and second that come to mind.

    I honestly see Brokeback Mountain as an overrated movie, but Crash winning that oscar was SO outrageous ¬¬

    *braces for rock throwing* I quite like ‘Crash’, but it winning over ‘Brokeback Mountain’ or ‘Munich’ for that matter was just plain silly.

    If they had to give the Oscar to any film about lives interconnecting, I’d have preferred Nine Lives for that year (which Glenn Close would have been a worthy winner for).

    I like Crash (hides behind Tye-Grr). Some of the dialogue is awful and some of the scenes contrived, but for the most part it works for me. Of the five nominated, it’s probably the one I enjoyed the most. The rest of the nominees are fine films, but none of the films in 2005 really elicited much passion from me so I was okay with whichever one won.

    Nine Lives was good. Close was good. But Robin Wright was best in show for me.

    Well, this is the second try for me to post this. I guess I’m such a slow typer that the site logged me out.

    The Visual Effects win for “Gladiator” over both “Hollow Man” and “The Perfect Storm”. Really? You mean, those fuzzy halos around the tiger pits?
    The BP win by that gawdawful “The Greatest Show on Earth”
    Jessica Lange’s category fraud win for “Tootsie”
    “City of God” missing a BP nomination
    “Gigi” defeating it’s competition for the win for BP
    “Spartacus” left off the BP list
    Cukor’s “My Fair Lady” defeating Stanley Kubrick and “Dr Strangelove”; “Becket: receiving the screenplay Oscar over it as well
    “The Sound of Music” winning the Editing award over it’s competition
    “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” winning the screenplay award over “Bonnie and Clyde”
    “2001: A Space Odyssey” missing the BP nod

    I dont necessarily consider it an outrage, but I wasnt happy when PSH defeated Heath Ledger for Best Actor, the latter who was astonishing imo
    “Days of Heaven” missing the BD and BP nominations, ludicrous omissions imo
    “Alien” left off the BP ballot (such a pattern)
    “The Empire Strikes Back” with no BP nod (so boot Tess)

    “Ragtime” blanked in the Music/score categories
    “Gandhi”‘s Art Direction win over Blade Runner
    “Out of Africa”‘s Art Direction win over “Brazil” and “Ran”
    Christine Lahti’s exclusion for “Running on Empty”

    “Dead Poet’s Society” winning the screenplay award over “Crimes and Misdemeanors”, “Do the Right Thing” and “Sex, lies, and videotape”
    “Awakenings” getting a BP nod over “The Grifters” and  also “Reversal of Fortune”, etc
    “Jurassic Park” left off the BP ballot
    “Good Will Hunting” winning the screenplay award over it’s competition
    “The Matrix” not on the BP ballot

    Phil Collins defeating Amee Mann’s “Save Me” for best song.
    “The Cider House Rules” winning screenplay over “The Insider” and “The Talented Mr Ripley”
    Ron Howard’s directorial win over that field, as well as that Best Picture win, not to mention the screenplay win over TLoTR, “Ghost World”, and “Shrek”
    Jennifer Hudson’s steamroller win for that song
    “Juno”‘s screenplay win and nomination for BP over films like “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly”,”Ratatouille”, and :The Assassination of Jesse James….”
    Chris Nolan’s snub for BD and “Inception”

    Such a change of opinion on Hudson’s performance, babypook. Strange.
