Very pleased to see the Academy think outside the box and go with Her.
Yeah, “Her” was amazing winner and this win semi-made up for Joaquin Phoenix’s snub.
I’m still have to see “Nebraska” and “Dallas Buyers Club” but the other 2 nominees were a little bit sub-par nominees. I really like the fact that Woody Allen was nominated for “Blue Jasmine” because I like dialogues and character work but overall the structure and pacing was lacking. I don’t get “American Hustle” love – the film was odd. It was so popular yet it couldn’t win or even get nominated in this one category where it should have been a runnaway winner – Make-Up & Hairstyling.
A major disappointment, although no way a surprise, was miss of “Frances Ha”, especially that Noah Baumbach was already nominated for “The Squid and the Whale”. I think that “Frances Ha” will stand the test of time very well and this omission will look weird in the years to come, especially if Greta Gerwig hit it off from now on.
As you can probably guess, I practically jumped for joy when Spike Jonze’s name was called. Such a moving film. It’s my favorite win in the category since Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.
I am probably the only one, but I voted for American Hustle because I freakin’ love the film!
Blue Jasmine. Her is second.
@tylertheawesomeguy i also voted for american hustle
There are worthy nominees up there, but Her is one of my favorite films from the year, and that screenplay rocks.
“Her” winning was incredible! Easy vote for me!
It’s a tie for me. Her wins for the overall original aspect of the writing. For the dialouge itself Nebraksa wins. American Hustle’s biggest downfall was the poor writing. Blue Jasmine had a decent script and as much as I loved Dallas Buyers Club, the script was nothing memerable. If I nominated 5 they would be:
