What was the most overpraised Best Picture nominee of the 15/16 Oscars?
I thought that 2015/2016 was an especially over-praised year. I really loved Mad Max: Fury Road andElliot Kronsberg
[quote quote=1202574334]Mad Max: Fury Road. Since it’s pretty much a straight reboot. Six Oscars to THIS? And none to The Force Awakens, the most popular film of its time at the time, and 92% Rotten Tomatoes critics support? Popularity

Is Joaquin Phoenix the most skilled (not necessarily the best) actor today?
He's one of the best skilled male actors. As far as the women go, he falls short of a few.JROCK1772
I would not necessarily proclaim him as the best, as Daniel Day-Lewis, Denzel Washington, and Gary Oldman probably sit above him, but Joaquin is certainly one of the finer actors of his generation. Perhaps we should do a Best Actor Working Today poll

Of her six Oscar noms, what would you have awarded Sissy Spacek for?
M: The Original
She won for the best of her nominated performances.RobertPius
Oh yes I see what you mean about Bates. I've seen a video tape of the 1990 Oscars and the pre-show and some stupid LA anchor woman asks Roger Ebert "will a woman like that be able to have a career" meaning she is so unattractive I guess. Lots of look

Of his seven Oscar nods, what do you think Robert Duvall should have won for?
Apocalypse Now, not because his surprisingly brief performance was that amazing, but because he wasRobertPius
What about True Confessions. I can't believe I've never seen that. It is him and De Niro. I guess it was kind of a flop.

If “Manchester by the Sea” was made in the 1950s, who would play Lee Chandler?
Monty. Brando is the only other one I would consider suitable. Dean was too young, Bogart too old aXander Cassel
[quote quote=1202544605]Tony Curtis would have been AMAZING in that role. He might actually have won that elusive Academy Award for his interpretation of such a character. I was gonna say Brando, but Tony Curtis is always the right choice.

If “On the Waterfront” was made in 1970s, who listed would play Terry Malloy?
Robert De Niro, no question about it, and he would NAIL the part perfectly.Alex Meyer
Either Pacino or De Niro. It's tough to choose between the two.

Gender Neutral Oscar for Best Actor (2010-2017)
Well this may sound sexist (and probably why they split them) but most years the men have the betterJake

Mahershala Ali, Willem Dafoe and the Understated Mentor at the Oscars.
Another one, sort of, is Mark Ruffalo in Foxcatcher, if you would consider him a mentor of sorts toMaxwell
There is no equivalent between Dafoe and Ali, or even Rylance. All had critics wins with subtle performances, but Dafoe's film is dead. Moonlight and BoS were both BP nominees.

How do this year's Oscar contending performances stack up to last year?
For the four main acting categories: I haven't seen Janney yet, but I doubt she is better than DaviMiles
Last year, at least in my opinion, the best category was Supporting Actress and the worst was Supporting Actor (I saw all performances except Isabelle Huppert). This year, Best Actress seems to be the best although I have barely seen any performances
