    I fully agree, Nicole strongly deserved for her role in Moulin Rouge as well as the film and directing

    Glenn losing for The Wife was an act of violence. Those 80s losses can be chopped up to being taken for granted. But everyone voted like clockwork for every category but the one that mattered?

    I disagree. For once, Academy voted for the best performance, not for the best career. I love Close and she deserved to be nominated but she should have win a long time ago. I hope she will win in the future for her performance only and not as a consolation prize.

    And I agree that The Favourite deserved more awards.

    Birdman winning over Boyhood.
    Still angry and wondering how the Academy missed that.

    The Favourite being almost shut out: I’ve made it pretty clear that I am a big fan of The Favourite and nothing made me angrier then seeing it lose Best Original Screenplay. Colman’s Oscar win was amazing but the film really deserved so much more as it should have easily beat Roma for Best Director and Best Cinematography. Still recovering ): Yours?

    First of all, Alfonso Cuaron is unbeatable. Maybe The Favourite was infamously robbed by Black Panther — Costume Design and Production Design.

    The year was 2013. A film called August: Osage County, which is based on a play with the same name, was not nominated for Best Picture. It gained only a couple of nominations — Best Actress for the unrivaled Meryl Streep and Best Supporting Actress for Julia Roberts. But they didn’t win. It was not even nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay. Also, what happened to the performances of Chris Cooper and Margo Martindale? Are they snubbed?

    Again, the year was 2013. And it was a bad year for me.

    Lol let’s not get too melodramatic here. August Osage County was overrated imo. The only nomination it deserved was Lead Actress, but for Julia Roberts. Meryl Streep’s performance was overrated as usual this century. She came off to me as too mannered and a bit hammy. Sorry not sorry. Julia Roberts gave one of her best performances, and I thought she outshined Meryl in this film. She deserved her nomination, but it should have been in Lead not Supporting. Otherwise, that spot should have been Emma Thompson’s. But sadly the Academy went with Meryl.

    I was banned for unspecified reasons. Bye, Goldderby. Thank you, next!

    Some of the Oscar wins that upset me the most might surprise some people… but they’re my personal most hated.

    1. The Third Man being snubbed for Best Actor, Director,  Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Adapted Screenplay and Picture in 1949. This is my all-time favourite film and is widely regarded as one of if the best noir EVER made. It lost to All The Kings Men.

    2. Spike Lee winning best adapted screenplay for Blackklansmann, which was this year. Easily one of the most ironically racist films to come out in living memory and even though I like Do the Right Thing and Inside Man. Blackklansmann is by far his worst film.

    3. Gene Wilder not being nominated for Best Actor for Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory. It’s my all-time favourite performance.

    4. Whiplash being snubbed for Best Director and Actor.

    5. Celia Johnson in Brief Encounter losing out to Oliva de Havilliand for Best Actress.

    6. The best film of the 90s, Saving Private Ryan missing out on Best Picture to the portentously overrated Shakespeare in Love.

    7. The Original Ladykillers with Alec Guinness snubbed for Best Picture, Actor, Director and Supporting Actress.

    8. Spiderman Into the Spiderverse being snubbed for Best Picture this year.

    9. David Olweyo snubbed for Best Actor for Selma.

    10. Terry’s Gilliam’s Brazil being snubbed for Best Picture, Director, Actor, Screenplay, Cinematography and Original Score

    11. The Dark Knight and Man on Wire BOTH snubbed for best picture in the exact same year.

    12. 12 Angry Men losing out on Best Director, Picture and Actor.

    (Hilary’s America being snubbed for Best Documentary, but we knew that was always going to happen.)

    13. Christopher Nolan losing out for Best Director for Dunkirk, over Del Toro for Shape for Water.

    14. Ken Loach being snubbed for directing I Daniel Blake over La, La, Land

    15. Goodfellas Losing Best Picture, Director to Dances with Wolves.

    16. Citizen Kane losing out on Best Picture and Director to How Green was My Valley.

    17.  Benedict Cumberbath losing out Best Actor for Immitation Game

    18. Carol being snubbed for Best Picture and Director.

    19. Jennifer Lawrence in Winters Bone losing out to Natalie Portman in Black Swan.

    20. The Aviator being snubbed for Best Director over Million Dollar Baby

    21. Tom Cruise being snubbed for Best Supporting Actor for Magnolia and Rain Man.

    1. Helen Hunt (As Good as It Gets) winning over Judi Dench (Mrs. Brown)
    2. Judi Dench (Shakespeare in Love) winning over Lynn Redgrave (Gods and Monsters). It’s ridiculous that of all of Judi Dench’s amazing performances, that her only Oscar was for an 8-minute appearance. This was CLEARLY an attempt by the Academy to make up for giving Hunt Best Actress over Dench the year prior.
    3. Halle Berry (Monster’s Ball) winning over Judi Dench (Iris)
    4. Sandra Bullock winning over ANY of the other nominees that year
    5. Sean Penn (Milk) winning over Bill Murray (Lost in Translation)
    6. Grace Kelly (The Country Girl) winning over Judy Garland (A Star is Born).
    7. Elizabeth Taylor (Butterfield 8) and her tracheotomy winning over Shirley MacLaine (The Apartment). Gimme a break!
    8. Cher (Moonstruck) winning over Glenn Close (Fatal Attraction). I love Cher, but puh-leeeeeease!

    Darling, I’ll spill FACTS:

    Helen Hunt deserved the Oscar. Period.

    Judi Dench deserved the Oscar. Period.

    Halle Berry deserved the Oscar. Period.

    Sandra Bullock des… next!

    Sean Penn (I assume you’re talking about Mystic River) not only deserved it, he was one of the best winners last decade for Eastwood’s movie.

    Grace Kelly was a darling, she deserved it.

    Elizabeth Taylor was fine, Shirley MacLaine is overrated in The Apartment.

    Cher robbed Glenn Close (before she was a bore).

    Lena Headey hasn't got an Emmy for Game of Thrones????? Emmys you need to win her right now!!

    Halle Berry’s performance was embarrassing. The worst mix of stereotypes all in one.

    If Halle Berry hadn’t won, do you think Gabourey Sidibe or Viola Davis would have won the year they were nominated for Best Actress ? I think both were robbed, and being the first black best actress winner would have give them a narrative other than their performances.

    No. Best Actress for a nonwhite nominee in order to cross the finish line needs to be relatively conventional in blending in with the other pretty pageant winners.
