How long before a man wins Best Actress?
Didn't Dustin Hoffman get a nomination for Tootsie?

And Julie Andrews got a nomination for her role in Victor/Victoria, playing a woman pretending to be a man pretending to be a woman . . .
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

And the race card is coming out hard and fast, with virtually all of it directed at Jamie Lee Curtis' win.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/oscars/jamie-lee-curtis-s-oscar-win-has-sparked-backlash-and-people-are-not-holding-back/ar-AA18xU1M?ocid=entnewsntp&pc=U531&cvid=6f8cd07bd2164a48ff6c9363659f131d&ei=71

African Americans are pissed off that she won over Angela Basset, and Asians are pissed off that she won over Stephanie Hsu.

One comment...

"Random mundane white woman in film, one of the antagonists even, winning in a film with a primarily asian cast is crazy."

And, overt threats of violence...

"everyone who voted for jamie lee curtis over angela bassett and stephanie hsu needs to sleep with one eye open"

That's charming.

Oscar who?

I echo others on that.  Must be twenty years since I gave up caring a nit about the awards except for some technical things like the music.

I discovered ninety percent of it was "inside" manuevering, gift giving, favor-trading, schmoozing and snoozing, and so on.  I'm not sure the other ten percent had anything to do with skill or talent.

How-ev-er, as a loyal member of APS, I did scan briefly through this thread and found nothing to pique my interest except the amusing suggestions for various people to smack other various people.

Good-o on that. :evil grin:

Yep, but that was the year that Ghandi was released, and Ben Kingsley was a shoe in for the Oscar.

And now people are losing their minds over Brendan Fraser winning for The Whale, and also for the movie being awarded for best makeup.

FRASER'S NOT FAT! HOW DARE THEY AWARD HIM FOR PLAYING A FAT MAN!

These stupid *expletive deleted*s apparently don't understand what acting is.

Why is no one talking about Kimmel embarrassing this lady (and himself)? Gross.
