    Anything Harvey Weinstein’s thirsty a** did to secure wins for his films. I’m so glad that vile & sneaky S.O.B got kicked out of the Academy.

    Never forget Honour1 Bradley1

    I, certified idiot, thought for a moment that this was only one picture and was absolutely puzzled how the headline was supposed to fit the photo.

    - Best Picture
    - Best Director
    - Best Original Screenplay

    Christopher Plummer in All the Money in the World

    I do agree that this nomination was really just the Academy giving the finger to Kevin Spacey. That said, what Spacey did isn’t political, it’s criminal.

    Ingrid Bergman in Anastasia. When she married to comunist Rossellini, Hollywood dumped her. Once she divorced him, they quickly welcome her back with an underserving win.

    Dont let me starting with “On the waterfront”. That was very political take imho

    Yeah what Kevin Spacey did wasn’t political, but the Academy nominating Christopher Plummer for the role he replaced Kevin Spacey in was. It was like you said them giving the middle finger to Spacey and showing how they wanted to look like they were taking a stand against the issues in the industry.

    People always say that Ingrid was undeserving of her win for Anastasia but who else in that group of nominees deserved it more? I agree that it was a political move to welcome her back to Hollywood but I think she also deserved the award too.

    Did I say they stopped? I specifically called out Harvey Weinstein for his political moves within the Academy. Why do you talk like you’re defending him?

    We’ll never know, I also wonder if Kevin Spacey would have been nominated if his performance was better? Probably not

    Lmao no. It was going to win Best Picture regardless, the snub was simply that because the Directors Branch does not take kindly to well known actors turned directors. It was probably the most popular film in the GP out of that lineup, and the critics even went for it. Don’t forget it also won the Globe, SAG ENSEMBLE (with no individual nominations) and BAFTA with even Affleck getting a Best Actor nom there. No other movie had a chance of winning BP Affleck snub or not.

    While this may have been true for the past 25 years or so, Robert Redford, Warren Beatty, Kevin Costner, Clint Eastwood and Mel Gibson have all won Best Director Oscars. Maybe members of the Directors’ Branch really didn’t think Ben Affleck (and George Clooney) deserved the award.
