1 The 89th Academy Awards ceremony hosted by Oscar Award Nomination 2017, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, will honor the best films of 2016 and will take place at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California on February 26, 2017. -- Submitted By: (oscar2017) on February 5, 2017, 5:28 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Irony! I put the Leo No Oscars a few days ago and Leo won the Oscar! -- Submitted By: (Cavery210) on March 1, 2016, 6:00 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I enjoyed Seth MacFarlane as host, and I'm not a big fan of Family Guy. Seems to be one of the most polarizing hosts in history, as there are people who loved him and others who hated him. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on February 25, 2013, 12:45 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 This isn't related to the Oscars (rather, the Golden Globes), but the Golden Globes nominations this year have quite a lot of snubs. For example, neither "The Avengers" nor "The Dark Knight Rises" were nominated for anything, and the only nomination that "Skyfall" got was for "Best Original Song." I'm also a bit surprised that neither "Paranorman" nor "Madagascar 3" were nominated for "Best Animated Feature." -- Submitted By: (cartooner) on December 13, 2012, 5:41 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

6 The Family Guy guy has been chosen as host for the 2013 ceremony. Couldn't they get anyone else? This is one year I won't be watching. I'd rather see David Letterman doing his Uma Oprah routine. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on October 5, 2012, 12:01 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 For the past thirty years the Academy Awards have been nothing but a fashion show. For the week after the ceremonies all you hear about is what all the ladies were wearing. What about the movies? -- Submitted By: (jgf) on February 28, 2012, 8:34 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I think they should drop the Best Song Oscar. There were only two nominations this year and both songs aren't that memorable. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on February 28, 2012, 6:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 I almost never watch the oscars because I usually find who won the next day anyways but this year the media coverage is just plain annoying and irrating. All they keep on talking about is Angelina Jolie's leg and Jennifer Lopez's "Did she or didn't she had a nipslip?" alot more than who actually won the awards. I didn't know who won the best actor for what movie. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on February 28, 2012, 12:32 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 Meh! I don't care for award shows period. Just a bunch of pretentious pricks giving other pretentious pricks an award. In most cases they don't deserve the award in the first place. By the way, why in the hell are there SO many now days? This is more of a rhetorical question. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on February 27, 2012, 8:04 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
11 Billy Crystal is the best host for the Oscars, but I got a "paycheck" vibe from him this year. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on February 27, 2012, 12:22 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
12 Watched last night. I think Anne Hathaway is beautiful and really have no problem with James Franco, but the show yesterday was a complete bore. Anne seemed like a cheerleader with her overly enthusiastic introductions and James just seemed bored by the whole ordeal. No real surprise winners either. 2010 by all accounts was a poor year for movies and the whole mood and attitude of this show gave that vibe. Even the Melissa Leo f-bomb wasn't that shocking. I think it's time to go back to Billy Crystal or Steve Martin next year. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on February 28, 2011, 1:47 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
13 I know it was bound to happen eventually but it happened last night! Congrats! In dropping the F-Bomb in front of a billion viewers, Melissa Leo actually got outclassed by Enimem and Whoopi Goldberg who'd actually managed to restrain themselves from using it long enough to make their speeches! Not that I'm happy she won instead of either that fantastic young performer Hallie Steinberg who aced it in "True Grit" or the always intriguing Helena Bonham-Carter who did a fairly good job in "The King's Speech" (and was the granddaughter of a lifelong friend of Churchill himself). Cheer up, ladies, everyone else outside the Academy who saw your performances know how good they were and many of us believe that neither of you would have ever considered doing what Miss Leo pulled off had the Academy selected either of you instead. -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on February 28, 2011, 11:43 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
14 It used to be a honor to win an oscar. But it loses on worth each year, because of the blalant manipulating behind the scenes. Sometimes an actors doesn't get an oscar for years, for roles the really would deserve them, and then suddenly they get it for a totally unimportant role, as if someone remembered: Hey, good actor, we can't forget him. And in the category "best animated feature" it's even more obvious. Every year a movie is there which is only half a concurrence to the disney feature, you can bet that it will win, just because they don't want to give the award Disney again. Letting Shreek win over Monter inc. was a farce, since the letter one was technically and concerning the deepth of the story better made. And this year? Well, Disney will win. I think it's set that Toy Story 3 will make it (and considering that they got all the other avaible awards too, it might be even deserved, advertising campagne withstanding), but not even a nomination for "Tangled"? Who do they try to kid? -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on January 31, 2011, 4:53 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
15 It boned for me when not only did they elect to give Woody Allen a Lifetime Achievement Award but then the ENTIRE audience was shown giving him a STANDING OVATION- not a single attendee excepted?! Sickening enough that the Academy itself treated him as though he could do no wrong cinematically and that they were perfectly willing to forget the human wreckage he reaped re all the stuff involving Mia Farrow's family but couldn't even ONE attendee have had the guts not to join in those whacked priorities?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on January 2, 2011, 4:09 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
16 The Academy Awards was added to my list of award shows that I stopped watching for one good reason. In the end, you come to realize that what you like is not what others like. We all have our own tastes and interests and with that said and no matter how glamorous the event is, the majority of the public often finds it irrational to allow an award show to tell us what to like. And I think much of the reason why obscure, independent, and foreign films are winning awards over the big studio productions made here is they are probably have more of the written winning criteria to show for. Meanwhile more of the movies made for mainstream audiences are spending more time focusing on giving people what they want and if the movie is number one at the box office two weeks in a row, that probably means more to the studio than a molded piece of metal, and if people like the film the profit from the DVD sales will show it. -- Submitted By: (jconifer7) on November 21, 2009, 10:39 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote

18 The academy awards of course are totally rigged. In Hollywood it's who you are and who you know. If you fall out of line in any way and go against the grain, whether it's politically or otherwise, your movie ain't winning and you aren't carrying any trophies. Don't they serve caviar at the party after the awards? That's a fish product you know. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on June 3, 2009, 9:24 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
19 Several events have contributed to the demise of the Academy Awards. It seems that for quite a few years, the criteria for winning meant that the movie had to be more than three hours long, foreign, or obscure. The movie also should have been very slow, like "Titanic" and "Braveheart." It also is incredibly annoying how after the Academy Awards certain movies' titles become a catchphrase like titanic and crouching tiger, hidden dragon. Not only do I now watch the Academy Awards themselves, but I am nervous to rent a movie that is an Academy Award winner. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on May 4, 2009, 5:27 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
