    Dead Poets Society winning Best Original Screenplay over Do The Right Thing. That was the one place where they could’ve compensated Spike Lee, but nope, they missed that opportunity. At least Lee has an Oscar now.

    I personally am not a massive La La Land fan, so I actually didn’t really like City of Stars and actually don’t think Stone is a strong singer, but that’s just me.

    As a fan of La La Land I also agree that Stone isn’t a very good singer. It I give her a pass because she acted through it.

    Nominate Jonah Hill over Daniel Bruhl, and Denzel Washington over James Franco (I know that allegations but…)

    People who say this remain in disbelief that Washington is a mainstay for the actor’s branch.

    Viola going supporting for her LEADING tour de force will never not piss me off.

    But I understand why she got so scared of the white-favoring system that may have snubbed a performance as undeniable as Fences, had she stayed in lead

    I won’t get over this until she wins a 2nd one in lead

    I still can’t to this understand how “The Living Proof” from The Help was never nominated for Best Original Song.

    It was from a BP contender written and performed by two musical legends (it’s not when “See You Again” was snubbed and the feeling about that was “are we really gonna give an Oscar to Wiz Khalifa & some kid on his first single”), especially when they had three empty slots available.

    Especially when the kid on his first single is the same mastermind behind “Let’s Marvin Gaye and get it on”

    See You Again not even being nominated is just criminal.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Everything about the 91 Oscars makes me mad, i disliked so many of the nominees and didn’t even had a favorite movie for 2018, Bohemian Rhapsody and Green Book are disgraces for the Academy Awards.

    And it sucks how Lana Del Rey got snubbed twice, Young And Beautiful is now considered a movie classic for the 10’s and many preferred it to the other nominees that year. Big Eyes to me is very beautiful and reflective, many don’t love it and i get it, but after missing for YAB they could have nominated her for this one.

    Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Pt 2 snub. They had 10 spots. It got rave reviews. Was # 1 boxoffice of the year. The series was a culutral phenomenon. A nom would be acknowledging the whole 8 movie saga. Unforgivable snub.

    TDK and Nolan. Should have been winners.

    Winslet winning for the worst role and movie of her career, yikes.

    See You Again snub. What an anthem and it was for Paul Walker you AMPAS fools!

    Uma Thurman snubs for Kill Bill movies

    Charlize snub for Fury Road, Fury Road not winning Picture/Director

    SCI FI NOT WINNING

    The Golden Globe winner Jim Carrey was criminally snubbed, Tom Hanks wasn’t gonna win a 3rd Oscar so soon, Edward Norton wasn’t going to win since he wasn’t nominated at the Globes or SAG and he was the only nominee for his film. The original frontrunner for the longest time WAS Ian McKellen, and also there’s Nick Nolte, who would’ve been a worthy winner too, and whom many thought would win for The Prince of Tides. So yeah, again, Benigni’s win has aged extraordinarily badly.

    Having just finally watched Gods and Monsters I have to say Roberto Benigni’s win is second only to Rami Malek’s. Oh and it also feel ridiculous they nominated McKellen three years later basically for one line compared to his magnificent performance of Whale…

    I understand that there were some amazing movies at the time, but I thought Leonardo should’ve won Best Actor for his role in The Wolf of Wall Street. I loved that movie sooooo much and Leo did a remarkable job. Yes, I was happy that he got it for The Revenant. but I honestly think he should’ve got it when Wolf came out. Also on the topic. I really think The Wolf of Wall Street should’ve won Best Picture. Aside from my opinion, I do think 12 Years a Slave was an amazing film and  Matthew McConaughey was phenomenal in Dallas Buyers Club, but I just thought Leonardo gave a performance in that movie that is hard to compete with. Im not saying that this is the Worst Oscar decision, im just saying that I was really hoping it would’ve gone the way I thought it would.

    Leo is iconic in WOWS and MM didn’t even win for Dallas Buyers Club but for MCConaissance narrative and True Detective peaking at the right time. There was much more talk about True Detective than Dallas. It sucks for Leo that MM being in WOWS added up to his narrative. I remember the completely moronic Oscar clip submission for Leo on AMPAS site that he shared with MM and that was big MM moment. Supposedly everything else had explatives but they couldn’t submit Qualuudes or something? seriously? Why the heck submit the clip that emphasizes his biggest competitor?

    I won’t ever fathom how in the world could the score of Jurassic Park not be nominated in 1993. I mean, the Academy nominates Williams for every single musical note he composes and they couldn’t nominate him and the movie for one of his most iconic works? I know he also had Schindler’s that year, for which he won, but ignoring an equally impressive score in favor of the likes of The Firm and The Fugitive was just bullshit.

    Glenn Close losing her 7 nomination. No matter how much Olivia deserved this i will never get over the fact that one of the greatest american actress alive can’t win this award, what she has to do?

    The failure of the academy to acknowledge foreign films. (At least Parasite make up for them).
