    Well, I have Taylor for example. I doubt she won her 1st Oscar because all the Academy members voted for her. There could have been a small group of people that decided they would give it to her. When Gwyneth won, I don’t think Harvey paid the whole academy. But a small group, perhaps the most important persons… aka the board of governors. I assume they have always been deciding the winners to their convenience.

    Hilary literally won the popular vote, but a small group of men decided she won’t be president, in this case we know who they are, but what do you know about the Oscars? Maybe the board operates in the shadow.

    Denzel Washington is also a convincing example. Russell screw his chances at the BAFTA, this doesn’t automatically mean the academy members didn’t vote for him. They could have voted massively, but for some reasons the board decided to punish his behavior, and not be associated with him, so they went with Denzel (which makes me happy btw for obvious reasons). It’s difficult to win BA with no precursor, but suddenly my father Denzel did it.

    Louis B Mayer and Jack Warner are notoriously known for sabotaging Bette Davis and other actresses chances to win.
    What I’m saying is that the winners are the winners, we do know they have won officially, but what about the unofficial part.

    kord ur doing a terrible job at hiding urself.

    This is really boring… Bore can only win for Sunset Boulevard. Period.

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

    Lena Headey ("Game of Thrones") for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

    If Lena Headey doesn't win the Emmy, I'm leaving GoldDerby forever.

    But then Alex frames Dan for her suicide with his fingerprints all over the murder weapon. That didn’t sit right with me, which is why I preferred the ending they used for the film instead of the alternate ending.

    I like the new ending better too.

    Does she really frame him though in the first ending? Doesn’t she just take the knife and cut herself like she saw in the opera she goes to? Madame Butterfly I think.

    Then he gets arrested since he had fought with her and pulled the knife away from her at one point. I don’t remember an indication that she was consciously framing him. How do you remember it?
