    I knew it. I knew he was this year’s Bacall, it was all about the narrative, and you DON’T win oscars for narratives. Hate that I ended up becoming a sheep and predicted Sly.

    I don’t think he’s a lock at all.

    Sylvester Stallone is hardly some beloved Hollywood acting legend. He’s not overdue. I agree that the narrative works in his favous as does the fact there isn’t one definite alternative for everyone to rally around but do you really think Academy members are going to think that the man with 10 Razzies is really deserving of the highest honour the industry can bestow.

    For every Don Amechie, Jack Palance, James Coburn, Alan Arkin and Christopher Plummer that they do award there is a Sylvia Sidney, Fred Astaire, Burgess Meredith, Mickey Rooney, Anne Sothern, Lauren Bacall, Gloria Stewart, Burt Reynolds, Albert Finney, Alan Alda, Ruby Dee, Hal Holbrook, Max Von Sydow that they don’t.

    I never once bought that Stallone nonsense. Unfortunately I swapped Rylance for Ruffalo about an hour before the show started.

    Made my night.

    Congrats to the people who made this call. I was a dumb sheep.

    A) Possible, but probably not because Rylance beat Elba at BAFTA where they were both on “home turf”. Bridge of Spies was obviously favoured by both groups, as opposed to SAG where Beasts of No Nation had an Ensemble nod.

    B) Again, possible but unlikely. I’m not sure Room was quite strong enough to win 2 acting Oscars, even with the directing nomination. And would a kid really have beaten an internationally renowned stage actor in a Spielberg film?

    C) The most likely scenario of the three raised here, especially considering his Birdman loss. But Ruffalo didn’t win, and he had the big “Oscar scene” and could also be considered somewhat overdue (for a supporting award at least).

    A) The race thing really did
    carry him to wins at SAG.  Pretty hard to explain him being the only
    Oscar-snubbed performance ever to win SAG otherwise, plus he won for Luther
    even though he had never been nominated before.  The only alternative
    explanation is that SAG just could not get enough of the futuristic
    for-your-consideration package, but come on.
    B) Tremblay missed BAFTA, Globe, Critics’ Choice and Oscar, plus he lost SAG.  Not seeing it.
    C)
    Keaton could not even overcome vote-splitting with Ruffalo in the
    nomination phase and given both that Stallone was not a factor and Spotlight was Best Picture (and Best Ensemble), Ruffalo really had everything that he needed to win and still could not.

    Poor audience. You can tell that they had been waiting for that category to announce to stretch their legs a little bit with Rocky’s theme playing on the back.

    It was one of the most emotional Oscar wins of my time. He didn’t give my best performance ever, but I thought the days of Academy members actually watched the films were gone. I thought only the headlines on internet sites and newspapers mattered. But I was wrong. The guy didn’t even go the award ceremonies nor did he even campaign. Bridge of Spies was a filler BP nominee that had a minimal buzz by the time of voting. Very nice.

    And can that steak-eaters argument stop now? Those so-called below the line bigots are probably more educated about filmmaking than the half of  pompous Holywood actors. And they were the ones that gave Stallone an ovation everywhere. Bitch Patricia was pretty sad that she couldn’t show the paper to the camera lol. Try next time.

    That’s exactly how I felt when James Coburn won for his amazing performance in Affliction over overrated Ed Harris. Academy members actually watch movies. As for Rylance, I prefered Hardy and even Ruffalo but he is deserving. So much more than Stallone who was good but nowhere near Oscar worthy.

    If tha academy did their homework Tom Hardy would have won. Since they screwed that up might as well have given it to Stallone. Wasn’t that blown away by Rylance, but there’s a definate bias for Brits and people with theater creds.

    I’m starting to wonder if Sly was even in 2nd. If his so-called comeback narrative wasn’t enough to beat the quietest, most poker-faced Oscar-winning performance of the 21st century (meaning that as a compliment), did he even get more votes than Mark Ruffalo on his third nomination in the BP winner, and Tom Hardy playing the villain in the most nominated movie of the night? Both of those performances could also be called “showy”, as could Christian Bale’s in another BP frontrunner.

    Although we did not know it, Mark Ruffalo was in the Best Picture, plus he won SAG Ensemble and those often yield an acting winner.  He got a BAFTA nomination over Stallone and despite BAFTA giving Spotlight only half of the nominations that the Oscars did.  In fact, its only other BAFTA nominations were for picture and screenplay, which it won at the Oscars.  Plus, it has been so long since a Best Picture only won one other award.  My guess is that Ruffalo was second.  (This is not to mention that he won SAG last year, gives a classic Oscar performance with tics and big speeches and this is his third nomination in the category in six years.)

    As a side note, it was painfully obvious that the reason Best Supporting Actor was announced so late in the ceremony was because the producers thought Stallone would win and get a standing ovation, and everyone at home would tune in. Is it just me or did Patricia Arquette look kinda disappointed? She was all smiley until she actually announced the name, when her face fell into a vacant expression and her voice went monotone. The applause was polite but muted. Even one of my favourite wins of the night became anticlimactic, although Rylance’s speech was very nice.

    Arquertte has always been terrible at presenting, or public speaking for that matter. She just comes off messy.

    This is nonsense, of course, implying that Academy members didn’t vote for Hardy because they somehow weren’t aware of him (in the film with the most nominations of any this year).

    They just weren’t as impressed with him as you clearly are.  That’s all.
