    In retrospect it is hard to believe that Brody beat Day-Lewis (but then The Pianist got director too despite the controversy and beating Scorsese who hadn’t won an Oscar at that point.)

    Scorsese was a long shot at best after Chicago really steamrolled everything. Marshall was the favorite but probably lost due to snobs dismissing him as a TV/theatre director and the art house appeal/welcoming back into the fold aspect of Roman Polanski.

    Glad Polanski won a competitive prize instead of an honorary one to acknowledge him.

    Here’s hoping that if Bale doesn’t win then it’s Dafoe (I realize there is no chance) but really anyone but Malek. I don’t want to see either Mortensen or Cooper win for these particular performances… but again anyone but Malek would be nice.

    Politically, perhaps. Artistically, it’s one of the better wins in this category of the last twenty years.

    Separating the horrible messaging of Polanski’s Oscar win, they were right about Marshall. His directorial efforts reveal a middling director with limited skill. He had one great concept in Chicago with the musical numbers playing in Roxie’s head, borrowed heavily from Bob Fosse, and instituted MTV style music video editing.

    I don’t understand how Cooper, Dafoe or Viggo would be pulling an “Adrien Brody” if they won.

    Nicholson and Day-Lewis. 2 veteran actors who had won twice before. Younger actor in an EXTREMELY baity role in an EXTREMELY baity role that was right up the old guard of the Academy’s alley.

    Rami Malek. Young actor with first Oscar nomination playing a real-life musician.
    Are you thinking Malek and Bale are as neck-and-neck as Nicholson and Day-Lewis? They aren’t.
    Malek is way out front. And if anyone beats Malek, it’s Cooper, because he no longer splits votes in Director. If they want to award Cooper (and ASIB outside of Song), it’s here.

    I don’t get the comparison at all.

    No. The passion for Rami and his performance is alive and well in Hwood.

    I can totally see Cooper doing this. First of all, he is deserving of the win (no disrespect to Malek who was fantastic btw). And he gets points for the Director snub. Plus, they are doing a crazy push for him in all of their ads now. People are realizing he’s now been nominated 7 times with no wins yet, so that helps too… At this point I’d say Malek is still winning but Cooper is gaining and in second now if you ask me.

    Won’t get my hopes up but would love to see this. I’m more of a Rami fan in general but thought Cooper was brilliant in this role.

    Because of #MeToo? Nope he was always Roman Polanski and what he’s guilty of was never a secret.

    I think Viggo could. Cooper not so much. Dafoe most definetly not, I don’t think many even saw his film.

    Viggo has been apart of several BIG Oscar baits. From The Lord of the Rings to small indie projects like Captain Fantastic. So a win for him would be well received.

    Then again, Malek’s run will be hard to halt at this point. Plus he’s played a historical legend. And given how much the Academy likes to reward people for playing legends I don’t see an upset happening. ( Colin Firth-King George, Day Lewis-Lincoln, Gary Oldman-Churchill, Redmayne – Hawking and Sean Penn-Harvey Milk all won. )

    Think about the guys who’ll play Michael Jackson or Elvis Presley.They’ll definitely win if Academy rewards big celebrity portrayals
