    There have been so many terrible Oscar wins I can’t even count them. Crash over Brokeback Mountain. No Country for Old Men over There Will Be Blood. How Green Was My Valley over Citizen Kane. What are yours?

    -Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side
    -Don Ameche, Cocoon (good actor, sweet performance but it was a pure “veteran” win….if they wanted to honor a veteran from the movie who gave a more memorable performance, I would have opted for Hume Cronyn)
    -Tommy Lee Jones, The Fugitive (he wasn’t bad but I found nothing in his performance that made me think “Wow! He was amazing!” and then add the fact that Ralph Fiennes and Leonardo DiCaprio were in the mix and it is made much worse).  
    -Melissa Leo and Christian Bale, The Fighter

    I am drawing a lot of blanks….I can think of a few bad nominations.

    Christian Bale deserved that Oscar, IMO. Melissa Leo, on the other hand, didn’t derserve it.

    Anyone who supports these wins, don’t deserve to have an opinion…Just joking, you just have zero taste.

    And you aren’t embarrassed to admit it in public?

    Christian Bale has been great in some films, but The Fighter wasn’t one of them. He was as hammy as Melissa Leo was.

    Bale’s perf in The Fighter has grown on me. I no longer find it jarring, and I never felt he was undeserving. Also, I’m sticking up for Melissa in the film. I’m happy she won. At the very least, she truly is supporting, and she could have won for the little seen, Welcome to the Rileys. Plus, I find it absurd that actors who play it animated and true to life, gets panned around here for being whatever (over the top, hammy, blahblahblah), while perfs like Rachel Weisz, who barely moves a muscle in her face, gets the praise (subtle, blahblah). Dont get me wrong. I adored her in that snooze-fest, self-stroking Deep Blue Sea. If I’m in prison some day, I’ll watch it then. It’s better than being in a coma, but just barely.

    But this bias for pickled perfs over hefty, animated ones is making me laugh harder than usual. Does this mean then, that the really really smart people gravitate towards the mummified perfs?

    Haha!

    O and while I’m at it, I’ll throw a bone to Diablo Cody and her ‘screenplay’ Juno, which she quickly followed up with the iconic Jennifer’s Body.

    ^I’m glad you recognized the horrid Juno Screenplay. One horrendous film (with the exception of Ellen Page) Still want those two hours of my life back.

    Bale and Leo deserve to be Oscar winners, I just wish they won for better performances and not for such a hammy film like the Fighter. I feel the same way about Al Pacino and Dame Judi Dench’s wins.

    Much I’ve railed against the BP and Director wins by The Hurt Locker, but equally egregious were their wins in the tech categories (specifically editing and the unheard-of sweep of both sound awards) where Avatar was clearly their better in this neck of the woods.

    AVATAR, with its decidedly anti-imperialist theme, didn’t stand a chance against the pro-military, war-loving HURT LOCKER.

    Ironically, though, many members of the military and veterans objected to the gross inaccuracies (apparently the result of too much dramatic license) in the HURT LOCKER.

    Well, I must throw a black bone towards Nicolas Chartier, who sent all of those emails to voters urging them NOT to vote for Avatar and instead cast one for The Hurt Locker. LOLOL!
