Has any year in film topped 1939?
1939 had a few classics like Mr. Smith Goes To Washington, Stagecoach, and The Wizard of Oz... but nOnTheAisle
With a tip of the hat to 1939, 1962, 1967, and 1983, I find 1991 most thrilling. Thelma and Louise,The Silence of the Lambs, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Beauty and the Beast, Raise the Red Lantern, JFK, The Prince of Tides, Fried Green Tomatoes, Th

Best Supporting Actress: 2009

Best American Musical of the 21st Century (thus far)
The correct answer is Sweeney ToddEddy Q
As a film - La La Land As a musical - Sweeney Todd, though Sondheim's original was rather compromised in Burton's version. And from 20th century? Greatest as a film is Singin' in the Rain, with West Side Story having the greatest music.

Can more non critically acclaimed films get acting nods???
On occasion, it happens. Take, for instance, Barbara Harris, who was Oscar-nominated for Who Is HaAtypical
It's true that so much of what an actor can accomplish in a film is dependent on many other factors. So if a skilled actor can "overcome" a bad director, bad script, bad editing, bad makeup, etc., that's the reward. It's a testament to his or her act

Audie Murphy deserves a biopic!

Dope was one of the best movies of 2015 and should have been nominated for picture, director, Moore,Tyler The Awesome Guy
That's other people and other critical awards that have absolutely no baring on the Oscars. The Academy Award voters back then were very biased. They did not want an LGBT-related to win back then. Now that times have changed and opinions have changed

Yep, the woman was a pioneer. She famously turned down Rita Moreno's role in "The King and I" becausJayDF
As I stated earlier, I am a huge Tina Turner fan, so yes I have seen her perform...twice live and countless times on TV. Bassett was over the top everywhere in all the scenes IMO, off the stage scenes. I'm just not a fan of her style, I think has a

Favorite/Least Favorite Oscar Speeches!
Was there a time in the history of universe that Jamie Foxx wasn't annoying?MHS83
Best ever: Gerda Weissman Klein. Although she wasn't technically the winner (she was the subject of One Survivor Remembers, not the producer), she did give a speech. I am so grateful that the orchestra stopped trying to play her off the stage and

Well, if those opinions are unpopular, I admit that I agree with over 90% of what you're saying.....Nathan Romberg
