    Matthew McConaughey is the worst win ever.

    You do understand that because you’ve said that McConaghey will be driving up to your house in his Lincoln.
     He’s going to bang on his bongos while letting loose an incoherent stream of consciousness. Run.

    Only a few Oscar wins that I positively hate and can’t really get over.

    “A Beautiful Mind” winning anything whatsoever. BP and Adapted Screenplay especially.

    Likewise for “American Beauty.” I’m glad it hasn’t aged well.

    “Life Is Beautiful” is equally vile, particularly for Roberto Benigni’s Lead Actor win.

    I can rationalize most Oscar wins into something or another, but those decisions really rub me the wrong way, and I don’t see that ever changing.

    Mercedes Ruhl and her LEAD role winning over Juliette Lewis
    and her star-making turn.

     

    Julia Roberts over everyone, but especially over Laura
    Linney.

    I hate how the insubstantial and middling 20 Feet from Stardom beat the more ambitious, important and compelling The Act of Killing and The Square for Documentary Feature last year.

    [quote=”seoul2002″]Octavia Spencer’s standing ovation. What a joke.

    Absolutely. I was hoping they were standing to rush the stage to snatch that Oscar from her to give it to it’s
    rightful owner Jessica Chastain.[/quote]

    Gwyneth Paltrow won over Cate Blanchett (this is a nightmare)
    Shakespeare in Love won over Saving Private Ryan
    Grace Kelly won over Judy Garland
    Robert Donat won over Clark Gable
    How Green was My Valley won over Citizen Kane
    Jennifer Lawrence won over Emmanuelle Riva and Jessica Chastain
    Eddie Redmayne won over Michael Keaton

    1999 Oscar is a really a nightmare with a lot of injustice (Best Picture, Actor, Actress)

    I still don’t understand how Bullock or Reese won, the only theory I can come up with is that they had both a bunch of romantic comedies and then when the academy saw them switch to a serious movie they gave them the award. But seriously I have seen my mom watch “The Blind Side” she doesn’t appear to do any emotionally acting wheras “Precious” and “An Education” feature Gabby Sibide and Carey Mulligan doing nothing but, why Bullock won is a mystery. “Brokeback Mountain” is a big blow for me because I thought it was so perfect and also “The Sessions” getting nothing but supporting actress nominations bugged me because the script was so good and so was John Hawkes.

    I have never gotten over this two:

    Gwyneth Paltrow winning for “Shakespeare in Love” over Cate Blanchett for “Elizabeth” . Seeing both roles and performances… THAT WAS A NON-SENSE!!! I hope popularity by that time had nothing to do with it (Paltrow (“Hook”, “Seven”) was more well known in Hollywood than “basically newcomer aussie” Blanchett), but I’m afraid it was a factor.
    – The usual rom-com “Shakespeare in Love” winning over one of Spielberg’s masterpieces: “Saving Private Ryan” . 17 years after… and still inexplicable.

    Other choices I still prefer otherwise (but I’m not too edgy about them):

    – “The English Patient” winning over “Fargo”
    – “Gandhi” winning over “E.T.”
    – “A Beautiful Mind” winning over “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” (I know; they wanted to reward the trilogy at “The Return of the King”, but this does not take apart “The Fellowship of the Rings” was a better movie than “A Beaitufil Mind”).
    – “Dances With Wolves” winning over “Goodfellas”
    – Sean Penn winning for “Mystic River” over Bill Murray for “Lost in Translation”
    – Cher winning for “Moonstruck” over Glenn Close for “Fatal Attraction”
    – “Annie Hall” winning over “Star Wars”
    – Nicole Kidman winning for “The Hours” over Julianne Moore for “Far From Heaven” or Renee Zellweger for “Chicago”
    – Jennifer Lawrence winning for “Silver Linings Playbook” over Emmanuelle Riva for “Amour” or Naomi Watts for “The Impossible”
    – Kate Winslet winning for “The Reader” over Meryl Streep for “Doubt”
    – Julie Christie winning over Julie Andrews for “The Sound of Music”
    – Haing S. Ngor winning for “The Killing fields” winning over Pat Morita for “Karate Kid”
    –  Renne Zellweger winning for “Cold Mountain” over Marcia Gay Harden for “Mystic River”

    I’m pretty OK with the rest of the Academy decisions on the “big four” and the “Best Picture” categories.

    I am a fan of Art Carney’s win for “Harry & Tonto” as well as Glenda Jackson’s for “A Touch of Class”.  If I had been a voter, I would have not voted for Glenda Jackson (I would have chosen Marsha Mason in “Cinderella Liberty”) but I don’t believe she is an undeserving winner.  That was a tough year for sure as was Art Carney’s year.  All performances were deserving.   The year Ellen Burstyn won for “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” was between Burstyn, Rowlands and Dunaway.  Diahann Carroll really did not have a chance and Valerie Perrine, some believe, should have been in the supporting category.   I imagine the final voting was extremely close…….but I was glad with the win for Burstyn.     In recent memory the win I did not like was “Shakespeare in Love” over “Saving Private Ryan”…….and Judi Dench over Lynn Redgrave (Gods & Monsters).

    Sally Hawkins, Julia Roberts and June Squibb lost to Lupita Nyong’o.
    Melissa McCarthy lost to Octavia Spencer.

    Hawkins and Roberts will return as nominees. And Julia has an Oscar for Best Actress. She’s not some character performer whose best chance at a second statuette is in supporting. Hawkins will have other opportunities.

    Squibb’s nomination was the reward.

    Everyone in the category was better than Spencer.
