    Cate Blanchet’s performance in Blue Jasmine was really good but I’d hardly rank it with some of the best ever! Had Bullock not won for The Blind Side, I think she would have won for Gravity.

    Interstellar was the best movie of 2014 and should have been nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Original Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing and won not only for Best Visual Effects but for Best Music Score, Sound Mixing and Sound Editing.

    Kathy Bates deserved an Oscar nomination if not a win for Dolores Claiborne, Primary Colors and a nomination for Midnight In Paris…. I know this ain’t really unpopular.

    Waltz is my favorite in that film, but I honestly believe in a weaker year, Waltz, DiCaprio, and Jackson all could’ve gotten in to supporting actor.

    Funny because it was indeed a weak year, and couldn’t get any weaker. PSH deserved to win here, but he was category frauding himself here so I wouldn’t complain about Waltz. The other 3 were just embarrassing.

    I remember there was this anti-McCanoughey thing going on here on Goldderby and it must have spilled into the voters heads because he was truly outstanding in Interstellar. I cannot believe his performance was snubbed but Matt Damon got nominated for his stale ass performance in The Martian. Interstellar being snubbed like that was just horrific.

    I HATE the way the Best Supporting categories are treated. Why is the focus for the supporting categories only on films that are on the Academy’s radar. In my honest opinion, NONE of the Best Supporting Actress nominees of this year were worthy of the nod.

    Regina King, while gifted and snubbed for great performances, she did absolutely nothing in IBSCT. She deserved to win over Cate Blanchet’s horrific performance in The Aviator with her outstanding performance in Ray.

    Funny, I’ve never heard it being referred to as a weak year before. I thought all five men were worthy (Although Hoffman should’ve been placed in lead. I understand why several people have called Waltz a lead, but his supporting placement didn’t bother me. Probably because he’s almost entirely absent from the climax). Alan Arkin was definitely the weakest link, but even then, he gave a very entertaining and genuinely funny performance.

    Don’t have the energy to explain the politics of the supporting categories relying on prestige movies over quality work in more commercial fare. But King was not the best supporting actress in Ray, Sharon Warren is.

    Darling, you’re ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. But hey, criticizing King’s win has been seen as racism in these forums.

    As a famous singer said, "ain't nobody gonna Thatcher, Thatcher, Thatcher!"

    I have to agree about King, because I actually just watched Beale Street. She’s amazing as she always is, and she has that big scene towards the beginning and several in the final third, but it’s not a performance I’d shower with awards. Again, it’s not the quality of the performance or her screen time that bothered me – though she’s barely in the movie – I just wanted more, idk.

    Oscar FYC - Lupita Nyong'o & Elisabeth Moss ("Us") - Best Actress & Supporting Actress. It must happen; otherwise the Tethered are coming.

    I think King did a great job as a SUPPORTING character. However I do not understand why so many critics showered her with awards while neglecting the whole rest of the film.
    If they fell in love with, then certainly there were other aspects in the piece worth of noticing (it deserved a best picture nom over 3 or 4 of the nominees).

    Anyway, her win doesnt bother me, it was fine, but I dont get where this overwhelming acclaim is coming from

    Sienna Miller is an underrated actress who should’ve gotten 3 Oscar noms by now for Factory Girl, American Sniper, and American Woman

    Your opinion of course. I think Regina had more to work with which would have been in her favor as well. She played a sexy, addicted, talented, heartbroken women and funny woman while Warren played the stressed mother. I personally would have nominated both but I prefer King.

    Of the Harry Potter trio, Rupert Grint (Ron) is by far the best actor. Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson are both painfully mediocre.
