    I like Mo’Nique’s performance but it is WAY OVERRATED.

    Whenever someone says it’s the #1 Best Supporting Actress win ever, I cringe. Somedays I would rather have had Marion Cotillard win for Nine over Mo’Nique’s performance.

    I confess to not liking her “on air” persona either. Still, as long as she stays out of my way I could give a crap what she says or does.

    Lol.

    Everything about “Junebug” is awful

    Sally Hawkins was as good, if not better”, than Cate Blanchett in “Blue Jasmine.”

    Leonardo DiCaprio is not overdue for an Oscar

    They should eliminate acting Oscar awards (or switch them to honorary/career ones only). Comparing acting performances on film (when they are majority created by people other than the actors among other reasons) is foolish.

    If there are to be acting awards, there is no reason for them to be divided by gender. There is no such thing as male or female acting (no drama school divides their students by gender).

    Gravity is not a masterpiece. Children of Men is Cuaron’s best film.

    American Hustle is David O. Russell’s best film.

    Lord of the Rings is the best film of this century.

    Inception might be the best film of this decade so far.

    The Dark Knight Rises is on par with The Dark Knight.

    Raiders of the Lost Ark is Spielberg’s best film.

    Inglourious Basterds might be Tarantino’s best film.

    Mr. Smith Goes to Washington is the best film from 1939.

    The Sound of Music is way overrated. 

    I agree (for the most part) with you on these. I removed the Departed post, because I think it is THE best Scorsese film. I would have picked Oldman over Dujardin.

    Most of mine have already been mentioned. 

    I’ll add:

    Halle Berry’s win isn’t the most terrible thing ever. I thought she was the second-most deserving of the nominees after Zellweger, though my favorite female lead performances from that year weren’t nominated (Naomi Watts, Tilda Swinton, Thora Birch). A lot of the hate has to do with her career post the win. 

    The Master is PTA’s first great movie and that is the first time he would have been a worthy BD winner.

    Neither The King’s Speech nor The Social Network are two of the very best films of ’10.

    Gravity is… cute and fun. Nothing more.  

    Vertigo and The Godfather Part 2 are the two most overrated American movies ever.

    I do not think Anjelica Huston deserved her Supporting Actress for Prizzi’s Honor.

    Cher should not have won for Moonstruck.

    I am not enamored by Liza Minelli’s win for Cabaret or with the movie Cabaret.

    Jason Robards was not memorable in Julia as well as All The President’s Men.

    ^i totally agree with the Moonstruck comment. The fact that that film won anything at the oscars is appalling.

    I’d have thought you’d want to use this thread to express how unbearable Daniel Day-Lewis and Michael Fassbender are. :p

    Cher not deserving to win for Moonstruck is hardly an unpopular opinion – in fact I don’t think I’ve ever seen or heard of anyone defend her win, at least not on these boards. I have to say though that Olympia Dukakis was very deserving of the supporting prize.

    It’s enough for him to reiterate what fools we all are.

    Saying over and over again that acting is unimportant doesn’t make it true.

    To be fair I take Scott’s point, but we’re always gonna have favourites. Making claims that one film performance is objectively “better” than another is superficial, (unless it’s, say, Renée Falconetti in Passion of Joan of Arc vs. Paris Hilton in The Hottie and the Nottie) seeing as different roles require entirely different things. And yes, directors, editors, and even to an extent cinematographers contribute to the effectiveness of a film performance.

    Crash was fantastic and worthy of its Best Picture win. 

    Julia Roberts was great in Erin Brokovich.

    Helen Hunt was great in As Good As It Gets and deserved the Oscar (Haven’t seen Christie though)

    Michelle Pfieffer is overrated in Fabulous Baker Boys  and Jessica Tandy was fantastic. 

    Dianne Wiest gives an impersonation of Norma Desmond in Bullets Over Broadway and was undeserving of her win (Her win for Hannah though is amazing!)

    Glenda Jackson was actually quite good in A Touch Of Class.   

    Grace Kelly gave a fantastic, brilliant performance in The Country Girl 9Though Judy still should have won)

    Chicago is a great film.

    Annette Benning’s performance in being Julia is no masterpiece and is completely ruined by her material and her overdone performance (This is kind of love it or hate it, but I’ve seen a lot of love for it which I don’t understand).

    No Country and Javier Bardem are overrated.

    Sean Penn was amazing in Milk, though I love Rourke as well.

    The King’s Speech is an admirable and entertaining movie.

    The Artist is a wonderful film and Jean Dujardin was wonderful as well.
