  1. Oscar awards are my favorite. I hope some of my favorites will win this year for sure. I want to get all updates for Academy awards. That’s why i subscribed to your feed

  2. Kathleen says:

    I forgot to watch and also didn’t DVR I guess I’m a little surprised I picked American Sniper for most nominee’s then last night i watched Birdman and yea they pretty much got it right. I only wish Edward Norton would have won he was great!!!!!

  3. It was a fantastic show.
    No major surprises and full of entertaining moments.

    George Vreeland Hill

  4. Reblogged this on Jeffraaay the Owl and commented:
    I went 19 for 24, I really hoped Boyhood would’ve taken the top prize since Iñárritu won Director. On a side note, every Best Picture nominee went home with at least one Oscar.

    Birdman- 4 wins
    The Grand Budapest Hotel- 4 wins
    Whiplash- 3 wins
    American Sniper- 1 win
    Boyhood- 1 win
    The Imitation Game- 1 win
    Selma- 1 win
    The Theory of Everything- 1 win

  5. I was only hoping for one win…and the best Actor got it. That’s the only part I watched and I was so happy for him. What a role and what an actor. Amazing.

  6. Marcus says:

    I am so glad that American Sniper didn’t win, it felt like a glorified made-for-tv movie, with the scenes stitched together without elegance or art, and did not take advantage of the opportunities presented to it. And the war-noises-blank-tv-screen? so cliche, and yet that was the most artful piece in the movie. I went into it with high hopes and came out with a bad taste in my mouth and a silent somber audience. For good reason though, of course, it was quite the depressant.

  7. R.J. Gleason says:

    I fail to see how the Academy made its final judgments. Where’s the voice of the movie goers in their final selections; Oscar has faded away and now must take a back seat to excellence in the motion picture arts and science. As once said ” who are these guys “!

  8. D. Bona says:

    The Academy has shown it’s complete lack of sound judgment yet again.

  9. The Real World says:

    For the 10th straight year in a row, I did not watch the stupid Oscars because it is, without a doubt, fixed. The winners already they won, they just act surprised….BECAUSE THEIR ACTORS!!!!!! More proof is the list of winners I just read. Totally fixed!!!! American Sniper was by far the best movie of 2014 and Bradly Cooper was outstanding. But that’s show bizz. Its all about who has the deeper pockets of money to pay the right amount of people off to get the award.

  10. John R says:

    Well this was expected, Hollywood liberals.

    American Sniper out shown and out earned some of these other movies.

    But we know who really won whether liberals want to acknowledge it.

  11. MeliSwenk says:

    Reblogged this on collected. and commented:
    Congrats to Julianne Moore, Patricia Arquette, Birdman, and Neil Patrick Harris to a great night! Please, direct comments to original post.

  12. J.E. Vizzusi says:

    How can any Film that was shot in 21 days beat out a Production that lasted 12 years? Birdman was good, wonderfully acted and a dynamic movie. But not Best Picture of the Year! And Keaton was snubbed for sure. But in my reality, “IDA” was the Film that overshadowed my life in 2014 so congrats to a wonderful team from Poland.. most meaningful. most sensitive and most spiritual drama!

  13. Regina says:

    Typical Hollywoood snobbery. You better be glad we have “American Snipers” so you can continue to create the garbage you put out to the public. Don’t worry…the public has spoken with their wallet and their hearts about Best Picture, Best actor,Best director.

  14. Al Nasir says:

    The low budget movies won.

  15. prathap says:

    When re-telecast oscar award function in star movies…???

  16. Marc Broner says:

    Hollywood showed just how pathetic they are, by not awarding Best Picture: American Sniper;
    Best Actor: Bradley Cooper: and should have nominated, for, and he should have won, Best Director: Clint Eastwood. People are being punished, for being patriotic. Now Hollywood, is punishing, American Sniper. Just remember, we wouldn’t have, the freedoms, we have, if it wasn’t, for the American Military.

    • Kate H says:

      You do realise that American Sniper only got on the lists as makeweight – taking the place of more deserving choices like Jake Gyllenhaal, Ralph Fiennes, ‘Under the Skin’ – purely because its director was a name?

      And if you think that celebrating murderous war criminals is “patriotic” while not winning a couple of movie awards is “punishment” then your sense of entitlement has gone beyond mere self-delusion into outright sociopathy.

      • HoustonGirl says:

        Because of these “war criminals” you get to say that. POS that you are.

      • Ray says:

        “Murderous war criminals”…Fuck you!

      • J.E. Vizzusi says:

        Finally Kate H.. let the truth be told, thank you. Eastwood since his RNC talking chair speech has been a difficult to market Director. But with AS, his credit is above the rest. So the gun toting neo cons can have their own movie to play with this year. Yes, they are entitled to hugging USA violent afflection on societies because freedom rings. The message is a sour one… kill or be killed, although the enemy is unclear. I would suggest to any soldier returning from a war to watch “The Best Years of Our Lives”, a much deservingly so Multiple Oscar Winning Film that deals with the psychological struggles of veterans entering back into society better than any other movie of that same related subject. jv

  17. Geoff says:

    Absolutely rapt for Eddie Redmayne in a bravura performance in the Best actor category. Not happy with Best Picture though, as I thought “Birdman” was literally one of the worst movies I have had the displeasure of having to sit through.. in my humble opinion. Ultimately it was voted for by the membership and whilst my opinion will likely be in the minority, as a long time film buff, i agree with a film Producer friend of mine commented ‘A film about actors? Who gives a s**t!”. LOL. Best highlight of the telecast was Lady Gaga’s 50th anniversary tribute to “The Sound of Music”.

  18. Joe says:

    What a joke. How many people actually saw Birdman? What the hell is it about? AMERICAN SNIPER was an OUTSTANDING movie. Better than any of these movies.

  19. stuart lee says:

    So where are the winners? You’ve only listed JK Simmons!
    I’m waiting!!!!
