Bohemian Rhapsody winning for Best Editing. I think even fans of the movie can agree that was a wrong decision.
I think that’s probably the worst mistake they’ve made in a while. Bohemian Rhapsody genuinely had terrible editing and I don’t think anyone can dispute that. I haven’t met a single person who doesn’t mate that win, regardless of whether or not they liked the film (and I actually enjoyed it).
The only other one I can really think of is Spotlight beating out Mad Max Fury Road, The Big Short, and The Martian (but especially Fury Road) for Best Picture, and Inside Out for Best Original Screenplay. I’m sure it’s fine, but Fury Road is tied for best film of the decade with Parasite, and Inside Out has a Top 3 screenplay of the decade. Both films deserved the win more.
Parasite: Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay

The Favourite losing Best Original Screenplay to Green Book. I don’t hate Green Book but this was a terrible choice.The Favourite was far more deserving. Rachel Weisz was also more deserving than Regina King(who really didn’t do anything award worthy). The whole film got shafted last year.February 12, 2020 at 7:54 pm #1203345004
Regina King over Amy Adams in Vice, I love her but she doesn’t have a single remarkable scene in that movie, how come she has now 3 Emmys and one Oscar? Good actress but overreawardedFebruary 12, 2020 at 8:17 pm #1203345032

I’d say she had more remarkable moments than Adams. Her only real standout moment is in the very beginning of the movie. When you first see the movie, that scene seems like a great introduction to her, but after it’s done, we never really see that same powerful woman again, as she spends almost every other scene as a fairly docile presence.February 12, 2020 at 9:34 pm #1203345064
I’ll just hop in to defend Allison Janney and Green Book. Both definitely deserved to win their categories despite what film twitter thinks.February 12, 2020 at 9:48 pm #1203345074
These actors losing or not being nominated:

“Art Carney won for the stupid movie with the dog. He only had one single nomination and won for it,and then never nominated again and disappeared”
It’s Best Performance Of The Year, not Lifetime Achievement. It was basically a one man show and he was wonderful.February 13, 2020 at 2:42 am #1203345219
The worst decision was expanding to ten Best Pictures nominations. It cheapens it and there will be cry’s of snubs when five directors don’t get the nomination but their picture did. Go back to five. There was no reason, it clearly didn’t help in the ratings.
