    2002, none of the winners from the above the line categories swept the precursors including directing/picture/screenplays.

    Lauren Bacall losing to Juliette Binoche was a shock.

    I was gonna point that one! That same year we had Frances McDormand winning over GG winner Brenda Blethyn (who also won the BAFTA a month after her Oscar lost). Frances also won the SAG, but since she lost the GG Comedy to Madonna, I believe people thought she wasn’t going to win afterall – and SAG was also the ones who gave Jodie Foster a win instead of Oscar winner Jessica Lange, so I believe people weren’t too confindent towards the SAG results.

    I love it, I love it, I love it, but I also have my problems with it.

    Nicole Kidman is amazing in Moulin Rouge!

    The film won the Golden Globe and the PGA for Best Motion Picture

    2001 BActress was not a “shock” please, by the time of the Oscar it was quite obvious that Berry would win. I do believe in the genuineness of the reactions though.

    It was not a shock, but it wasn’t obvious either. Sissy Spacek was right there.

    2001 Supporting Actress: McDormand won the Critics Choice, Hudson won the Golden Globe, Walters won the BAFTA and Dench won the SAG. Then Harden (who wasn’t even nominated at any of those awards) won the Oscar.

    that was fucking wild.

    …so basically, none since social media and the Internet became huge. That ruined any element of surprise since people can pretty much predict all sorts of scenarios.

    Marina de Tavira’s nomination is the biggest shock I’ve ever had in a while.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Peck, Davis, Sharif and Lansbury. All but one were upsets.

    I think

    I think I recall reading somewhere that Geena was predicted to win because the other 4 nominees were genuine supporting roles whereas she was a borderline lead. I think Siskel & Ebert were the ones who had predicted that, but I’m not sure. As for Jodie’s win, I don’t know that it was necessarily a surprise. She did win the Globe. Not that that was considered a “precursor” back then like it is today, but I’m just saying that she had already won a major award for that performance. I think the only other nominees who really stood a chance to win were Glenn and Melanie because they were both in BP nominees. Meryl wasn’t gonna win a third Oscar so soon. And Sigourney who was a double nominee probably got more votes in the supporting category. Jodie played a rape victim so that probably helped her chances of winning.

    I saw Davis on Oprah not long before Oprah went off the air. Davis said on the way to the ceremony in the limo she saw Siskel and Ebert rank her fourth in chances of winning so she was like this is over. (and they did complain she was a lead.)

    I think Davis won because if true there was that backlash against Weaver for the excessive pushing of Gorillas in the Mist (plus Cusack may have taken some of her votes.) McDormand’s film became controversial and they weren’t going to touch that and Pfeiffer had only mixed reviews some saying she was too modern for the period piece. So Davis scored one of the biggest upsets ever.

    Davis wasn’t THE predicted to win. It was a very close race between her, Bancroft and Page. Bancroft won Cannes and NBR, while Page won GG. Davis had a lot of hype and a big push to win her third but she was just as much predicted as the other two.
