By far – The Grand Budapest Hotel. Style over any sort of substance.TVFan365ParticipantJoinedJul 12th, 2011Total Topics0Posts286January 20, 2016 at 4:41 am #551302

Absolutely American Sniper. I’m still mourning for those 2 hours that I’ve spent for watching that trash.FilmGuy619ParticipantJoinedJan 13th, 2013Total Topics118Posts1015January 20, 2016 at 5:21 am #551304
I’ll go with The King’s Speech 2.0, er, I mean, The Imitation Game. Same formula (famed Brit fighting Nazis during WWII) but with colder direction.ETPhoneHomeParticipantJoinedJan 3rd, 2013Total Topics40Posts3020January 20, 2016 at 6:39 am #551305
The weakest two were by far the Theory of Everything and American Sniper. Basically a coin toss between them.TerenceFletcherParticipantJoinedOct 10th, 2014Total Topics0Posts377January 20, 2016 at 7:45 am #551306
I stand by my unpopular belief that Birdman is the worst of these eight films.AMGParticipantJoinedSep 20th, 2012Total Topics139Posts3530January 20, 2016 at 11:16 am #551307

The comparison would work of it weren’t for the fact that The Kings Speech isn’t about a famed Brit fighting Nazis during WWII…24EmmyParticipantJoinedNov 4th, 2010Total Topics345Posts8728January 20, 2016 at 12:17 pm #551308

Never got the hooplah over “Birdman” at all and this is coming from someone who for years couldn’t wait for a Michael Keaton comeback.LegendOfMattParticipantJoinedNov 1st, 2014Total Topics0Posts59January 20, 2016 at 5:08 pm #551311
The Theory of Everything for sure. Complete fluff. The performances are the only saving grace. Makes me nauseous to think that that crap got in over Nightcrawler and Gone Girl.GusCruzParticipantJoinedFeb 26th, 2012Total Topics41Posts8894January 20, 2016 at 6:49 pm #551312
The British biopics gave Birdman a run for the money, but nothing can touch Inarritu’s toxic, reactionary disaster.mafro987ParticipantJoinedJan 23rd, 2014Total Topics3Posts584January 20, 2016 at 7:07 pm #551313
Between The Theory of Everything and American Sniper- I think ToE has the edge as the performances and score were actually good.Caleb SiebeneckParticipantJoinedAug 1st, 2014Total Topics1Posts33January 20, 2016 at 7:40 pm #551314
I give Redmayne credit for a strong performance, but ToE did not stand out much from the pack, like the other nominees manged to do.CheshireParticipantJoinedNov 16th, 2012Total Topics7Posts758January 20, 2016 at 8:05 pm #551315
I’ll go with The Theory of Everything. For as much as American Sniper is yay America rules (not pro war), I thought it did have some very tense action scenes. The Theory of Everything to me came as super shameless Oscar bait and I’m normally a sucker for Oscar bait.
