    The fact that Naomi Watts didn’t get the nomination for Mulholland Drive. I know the film is more complex than what the basic Academy tend to go for but it’s still an abysmal decision.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
    Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)

    I have a few beefs:

    Omar Sharif being snubbed for his soulful performance in Dr Zhivago (while his co-star Tom Courtenay was recognised, I felt they also unfairly ignored Geraldine Chaplin). As much as I enjoy Julie Christie in general, I didn’t care for her performance much so no issue there.

    Similarly, James Dean being ignored for Rebel Without a Cause. While his co-stars were noticed, I thought all three were as deserving as each other. A dream of a love triangle.

    Considering I am yet to see a better performance by an actress this decade than Lesley Manville in Another Year, I still have issue with that snub (especially as she could have landed in either category).

    I still struggle with the concept that Irene Jacob remains without an Oscar nomination, especially as the Academy has been kind to French actresses many times. For me she was win worthy in Red/The Double Life of Veronique.

    Vitalina Varela, Vitalina Varela (Actress)
    Andrea Riseborough, Karim Saleh, Possessor/Luxor (Actress, Actor)
    Rosamund Pike, Peter Dinklage, I Care a Lot (Actress, Supporting Actor)
    Jim Broadbent, Helen Mirren, The Duke (Actor, Supporting Actress)
    Sophia Loren, Abril Zamora, The Life Ahead (Actress, Supporting Actress)
    Carey Mulligan, Promising Young Woman (Actress)

    Dean was nominated already that year for East of Eden, would you rather see him being nominated for Rebel? I do prefer his performance in Rebel over Eden.

    For me definitely choosing Jones over Fiennes. His work for Schindler’s List was incredible, menacing and very impressive. He was robbed. Can’t see why the Academy went with Jones.

    I don’t think there was a consensus outside online forums like GD that Weisz deserved to win over Stone or whatever.

    Even Goldderby was split. I remember we had a poll on who should win between them and both of them had an almost equal number of votes. I guess we just focused on Weisz mostly because she would have a easier path to a win than Stone, plus she was pretty much a lock to win at BAFTA after King’s snub.

    Darlings, from recent years there are a lot:

    1. Animatronic winning Best Actor over Drunky Cooper, Vice Bale and Painter Dafoe. Even Italian Mortensen was better.

    2. The Disgusting Bestiality of Water winning Best Picture over The Post and Darkest Hour

     

    3. Offensive McDormand winning Best Actress over Meryl Streep

    4. Mother King winning over Amy Adams and Classy Weisz

    5. Bohemian Tragedy winning Best Film Editing (WHAT THE FUCK!)

    6. Trans Leto winning Best Supporting Actor over Slaver Fassbender

    7. Argo winning Best Picture over Lincoln

    8. The Hurt Locker winning over An Education

    9. Overacted Zellweger winning Best Supporting Actress over Shook Aghdashloo and Mother Hunter

    10. Husband Broadbent winning Best Supporting Actor over Wizard McKellen

    In the Animated category:

    Brave winning over Wreck-It-Ralph and Paranorman.

    Happy Feet winning over Monster House.

    Wins I can understand but still are bad winners:

    Zootopia winning over My Life as a Zucchini, Kubo and the Two Strings, and Moana.

    Up winning over Fantastic Mr. Fox and Coraline.

    I don’t think there was a consensus outside online forums like GD that Weisz deserved to win over Stone or whatever. That’s why Weisz never won a televised award except BAFTA where she was the British supporting actress (also BAFTA-less) in a film that swept. That’s why I considered King last year having no competition heading to the Oscars once it was established that industry could not care less for Adams in Vice either.

    It sickens me that they’re waiting for a headlining role from Adams to bestow an overdue prize. She has five supporting nods! She should have won there. Less push back would be had from King and Weisz supporters.

    Anthony Perkins in Psycho and Robert Shaw in Jaws should be Oscar winning performances. The fact that they weren’t even nominated is absolutely criminal.

    On the topic of Jaws, Spielberg’s direction being snubbed is similarly heinous.

    The way Call Me By Your Name was dealt by the Academy will remain the most outrageously frustrating thing they’ve done the past few decades at least. I know it won screenplay but it deserved much more honestly. Picture, Actor and Song should have easily gone to Call Me By Your Name, with additional nominations for Directing, Supporting Actor and Cinematography. I’d even give the latter three to this as well. Guadagnino was very underappreciated throughout that season, even on Goldderby. P.S. – I will forever hold LAFCA in high regard because they were one of the few major organisations (perhaps even the only one) that recognised Call Me By Your Name‘s true worth and awarded it accordingly.

    Truly the best movie in that lineup and it’s not even close.

    Darling, I really thought Zootopia was a very smart movie which had a very interesting take on politics. Definitely underrated by audience.

    I just LOVE Zootopia for its worldbuilding, maturity and characters. Truly one of my favorite animated movies of late.
