The Annual Academy Awards Topic

Recommended Posts

I was hoping for a Ruth Negga upset, but knew it would not happen. I would have gave it to any of the ladies except Meryl. I like Meryl, but do not think she should have been nominated.

His co-nominees deserved it just as much. Especially Denzel. 

Subjective- but I think it's crap to dismiss someone's work just because ALLEGATIONS have been made against them.
I love Denzel, but found him lacking in Fences. To me it felt phoned in.

Yay, Emma Stone!!!  Great evening for the leads of The Help!

Didn't see Loving, but it's cool seeing Ruth Negga get some love.  Remember first seeing her as Raina on Agents of Shield and being majorly impressed.

That's how I felt about Russell Crowe the year Denzel won for Training Day.  

I'm still convinced that this was their "oops our bad" for not giving Denzel the Oscar for The Hurricane.

Emma Stone won? I like her overall, but she was meh in this.  And she's sadly giving me Anne Hathaway vibes.

I agree. I watched both and Casey's performance was heart-breaking. He deserved it and it was his award. Everyone knew it was going to be him.

I would have loved to see Meryl Streep win it.  If only to see the President's head explode.  ;)

But, it was pretty obvious that Emma Stone was winning, so, yay?

Emma has won a few awards this season - BAFTA, SAG - and all of her speeches there were meandering and long-winded. This was a little better, but not by much.

Ha! That's how I felt about Denzel the year Al Pacino won for Scent of a Woman. I was sad Al hadn't earned an Oscar yet, but damn Denzel's Malcolm X was transcendent.

I don't know why, but I find it very annoying when young actresses get up to the stage all breathless and rambling. I know they're probably nervous/excited, but you'd think they'd have more composure in this business. Editors sometimes have more poise!
Anyway, I don't like Emma Stone, and I'm probably alone in that opinion, so I'll see myself out!

I know what you are saying and I think Casey is a talented actor but I could not stand MBTS and I did not like his performance. Shrugs.

I didn't see the other performances, but am still surprised Emma won this. She was great in La La Land, but it didn't seem like a hard enough performance to get an Oscar, if you know what I mean.

Eh, it's a Persian thing.  Admire his films; don't like him personally.  

And I always thought Abbas deserved more recognition than the In Memoriam nod.

That's how I feel.  Denzel may have deserved this year, but he got one for basically playing Jules Winnfield in a squad car.

I went to bed - slept - got up - saw that this bloody show is still on.  I have a message for Hollywood.

Let my people go.

I am going back to bed now.

When Washington won the SAG award, there was a feeling (hope?) that he was gaining ground on Affleck and could pull off a win.

I'm considering Affleck's win this year as the makeup for him not winning for Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

And I'm still bitter RDJ didn't win that year lol. Or the other time he was nominated because he deserved it for Tropic Thunder as well.

 

It's past 11 here. I can't remember the last time the Oscars went past 11.

Lol, I remember Hathaway looking at the Oscar and squeaking, "It came true!" And wanting to throw up. I do recall being pleasantly surprised by Brie Larson last year for being succinct and gracious.

It's not a Persian thing, it's a personal opinion thing. I'm Persian too. ;)

His performance was heartbreaking. And sad. And melancholic. And dismal. Kind of picked one expression and settled into it.

This has no chance of ending by midnight. Maybe I'll be late to work tomorrow. My techs won't be there anyway until at least 10. 

Glad I'm on the west coast

Shirley waving to Warren. <3

I always forget they are siblings lol, they look nothing alike.

The only young actress with any right to be breathless on stage was Anna Paquin.
