  1. Well one hour into the show and it looks like they will give awards to the same movies and same actors then they did at the Golden Globes. American Hustle for every awards it is nominated, Jared Leto for supporting, Leo for comedy, Amy Adams for comedy etc. It’s just boring.

    And it looks like we already know the winners at the Oscars. I will watch SAG awards. And if that will be the same then I will probably not watch Oscars. Why when I know that Leto, Lawrence, Blanchett and McConaughey or DiCaprio (don’t even care who) will take actors wins, and American Hustle will take every other. Boring.

    P.S Oh God – they dared to snub J.Lawrence and give award to Lupita Nyong’o. Surprise of the year.

  2. Omg I know! The critics suck for snubbing Jennifer Lawrence… buy its okay because she’ll go on to win all the awards evn the Oscar (:

  3. I get why general groups will pick FROZEN, but, et tu, critics?

    Really, a sappy generic Disney entry rather than the poetic and masterful Miyazaki THE WIND RISES?

  4. My guess is that the Oscar is Lupita’s – Lawrence is the It Girl right now and is wonderful in “American Hustle,” but she won just last year, so voters will be more likely to spread the wealth. Also, the Oscars tend to rate dramatic performances more highly than comic ones, which should tilt the race to Lupita Nyong’o.

    1. No love for June Squib, what’s up? She was awesome in Nebraska!

      Love McConaughey but if this world is just please let Chewitel win the Oscar. Academy members please vote for him. He’s amazing and is well overdue!!!!!

  5. No surprises here, other than Lupita’s win. Same old boring awards show. Same people win or nominated ever year. There were so many great movies and actors in 2013 that were overlooked. These Hollywood people always manage to find ways to pat themselves on the back. There is no reason to watch the Oscars, we already know who the chosen few are.

  6. This was by far the absolute worst awards show I’ve every watched. Not sure who chose the MC but must of been one of her family members or an ex of some sort, beyond bad. Happy for all the winners. Would I watch it next year, no, no, no.. I’ll read about it the next day.

  7. The Oscars are mainly just a clubby, in-crowd of stars voting for their friends. It really has little to do with talent or merit. I think we all know that. Also, they want an Awards show that the public will watch so they need stars with high name recognition present. We should be grateful that they didn’t just reflexively nominate Hanks, Redford and Oprah for their name cache.
