2. "Too bad some rich fucks don't get to take home a trophy given by other" In response to Reply # 0
rich fucks that'll have no impact on me or my life and they'll still be rich assholes after they lose but now they can't lrverage the trophy into more chances to get more rich and make no difference in my life or in the world at large yet too many hours of time will be wasted wondering which rich jerk will win what and wear who on a some awful night in February. Yay! Or awww! I forget bc I got lost.
14. "Not enough scenery-chewing." In response to Reply # 11
Nothing the Academy loves more than scenery-chewing.
There's a fairly easy game to play to determine if an actor has a real chance at an Oscar nomination. Can you immediately pick out which scene they would play at the ceremony as you watch the movie? It must involve either crying or shouting.
I didn't think Theron had an obvious Oscar scene (maybe the scene where she discovers the green place is gone? That'd be my best guess). She was too busy giving a great performance.
(It's worth pointing out that I love 4 of the 5 nominees in that category-- but they were all pretty easy-to-peg Oscar performances, save for Ronan, who, while she does cry, does really lovely understated work. But goddamn, I've already forgotten the J-Law movie.)
