SAG Awards: Bale vs Cooper? Will Washington Upset? Mortensen and Malek?
I believe Rami Malek is going to win and deserves to win. he either will or he won't. My hope is that SAG-AFTRA will vote for him. I will be very happy for him if he wins.

This thread has already been made.DaKardii
Oops! I stand corrected. My bad. That being said, I can't really give a real opinion on performances because I haven't seen enough

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.

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.
