What movie Thomas Newman should have won his Oscar for?
Definitely WALL-E. It's one of his very best and it would very much be in the spirit of Disney/PixaArtIsntEasy
I was expecting this masterful effort when I heard people praising the 1917 score and yet not once did I find myself impressed. For me, I would've easily given him the Oscar for WALL-E and the fact he lost to SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, a movie I basically

Is the Martian done? Will it go 0 for 7?
Zooey the Dreamer
It has never been a contender outside of Directing and possibly Adapted Screenplay. It was a no starEmil Petrov
FreemanGriffin, nothing personal, but your BLIND hate for Mad Max is clouding your judgement! It is one think to hate the movie (I respect the personal opinion) but to be so blinded by that hate and not recognize the mere technical achievement o

Is “Boyhood” really going to win just Supporting Actress after winning HFPA, BFCA and BAFTA?
Another Boyhood thread... If only the film itself was as eventful as it is around here.TomHardys
It happens 🙁 The Academy didn't connect with it. I can understand, Richard Linklater's movies are not those of Hollywood and of Oscars, and he Will probably never have a chance again. But that's fine.Exactly. I thin

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button at the Oscars
Maybe I'm going to be crucified by saying this but I absolutely hate Slumdog Millionaire. Either Milteri
Uh-huh. This was my favorite film that year. I was amazed at how they adapted that very short story into this whimsical screenplay. Loved the perfs as well. Could be my favorite Fincher film so far.

Yes, The Lion King should've been nominated for Picture, along with the Sound categories and SupportBenito Delicias
Yes the film deserved much more than it got. Today, that film would've been nominated for at least Picture, Screenplay and Sound Mixing and/or Sound Editing. Back then, things were difficult and I don't see how any of the other five films could have
