    Her is way overrated. It’s a terrible film, with terrible acting, and a terrible score. One of Phoenix’s and Adam’s worst acting so far.

    The Matrix as a trilogy is something I prefer to the Star Wars trilogy. It’s messy, yes, but the 90’s vibe and trans subtext give way more to chew on, plus the fight choreography and thematic structure is considerably more interesting.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Weathering With You, Parasite
    Best Animated Feature: Weathering With You
    Best International Film: Weathering With You, Parasite

    Beauty and The Beast did not deserve a Best Picture nomination over Thelma & Louise or Boyz n the Hood, no matter how much of a classic it is.

    The Little Mermaid is the best film from the Disney Renaissance and both Part of Your World and Kiss the Girl are better songs than Under the Sea.

    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.

    LENA HEADEY hasn't got an Emmy for Game of Thrones????? Emmys you need to win her right now!!
    If Lena Headey doesn't win the Emmy, I'm leaving GoldDerby forever.

    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.

    Emmy voters must bend the knee to Lena Headey & Emilia Clarke for "Game of Thrones." It's their last chance to award them. Make it happen.
