Alicia Fraudkander in Supporting Actress for Danish Girl. So ridiculous when even the BAFTA and Golden Globes didn’t fall for that shit and she had no other movie/co-star that would prevent her from campaigning lead. Not to mention both lead and supporting races were dreadful, she could’ve easily gotten double noms as evident by GG + BAFTA and not have a post-Oscar win embarrassing trajectory that shows she was the wrong choice for the type of win they hope their ingenue girl would have.
but she stopped desperate Winslet from winning a second one so that’s something.May 20, 2019 at 11:44 am #1202901646

Well, I have Taylor for example. I doubt she won her 1st Oscar because all the Academy members voted for her. There could have been a small group of people that decided they would give it to her. When Gwyneth won, I don’t think Harvey paid the whole academy. But a small group, perhaps the most important persons… aka the board of governors. I assume they have always been deciding the winners to their convenience.
Hilary literally won the popular vote, but a small group of men decided she won’t be president, in this case we know who they are, but what do you know about the Oscars? Maybe the board operates in the shadow.
Denzel Washington is also a convincing example. Russell screw his chances at the BAFTA, this doesn’t automatically mean the academy members didn’t vote for him. They could have voted massively, but for some reasons the board decided to punish his behavior, and not be associated with him, so they went with Denzel (which makes me happy btw for obvious reasons). It’s difficult to win BA with no precursor, but suddenly my father Denzel did it.
Louis B Mayer and Jack Warner are notoriously known for sabotaging Bette Davis and other actresses chances to win.
What I’m saying is that the winners are the winners, we do know they have won officially, but what about the unofficial part.

you’ve spoken so well but there was no competition between Argo and Life of Pi. It was more like Argo vs Les Miserables. Of course, Les mis wasn’t a director think…..so Lincoln took over the director spot. Ang Lee was never a threat as Steven Spielberg took charge the moment Ben Affleck was snubbed. The real show down was Boyhood/Birdman
Took charge where?May 10, 2019 at 9:32 am #1202888080
