  3. I agree that most fucked ups are:
    -Tom Hooper over David Fincher
    -Gwyneth Paltrow over any actresses
    -Shakespeare in love over any freakin movie
    -last one is not really fucked up for me but i agree Mickey Rourke deserved more than Sean Penn.

  4. Naseby's Dad thinks:

    Supporting Actress:
    - As far as Tomei, I'm not sure who else was nominated that year, but I can't think that hers was the best.
    - I didn't see Houston in Prizzi's but I can't imagine that it was better than Harpo's.

    Supporting Actor:
    - Jones/Fiennes: I don't remember how Jones did, but not sure hoe it could have been better than Ralph.
    - Macy/Gooding: To me that is a wash.
    - Pacino/Grey: I haven't seen Cabaret, but I know the kind of movie that it was, so I could see how it may have been better than Pacino. To me, Pacino didn't do much other than look sullen.

    Actress:
    The only one where I have seen both, or can think that there is a big upset would maybe be Cher/Close. Cher, as a singer, did a nice job for what she did, but it wasn't the caliber of what Close did.

    Actor:
    - Hanks/Neeson: To me that is a toss-up. Both are great performances. I think Tom (mostly a comedic actor up to that point) had a better overall performance.
    - Wayne/Buton: That's just wrong.
    - Douglas/Williams: No issue there. Robin did nicely, but he was still himself.
    - Penn/Rourke: Haven't seen Milk yet. My understanding is that he did a great job. The topic would sit well with the voters. That being said, I thought that a re-invented Rourke did an outstanding job.

    Director:
    - Hooper/Fincher: Please. No issues there. What's wrong with Kings? This is for Director, are you confusing it with the story?
    - No issues otherwise.

    Picture:
    - Shakespeare/Ryan: So very very wrong.
    - OOA/Purple: Both are decent movies. While I prefer Purple, it's not a travesty.
    - Wolves/Goodfellas: I've never seen the love affair with Goodfellas. Perhaps I need to watch it again.
    - Gump/Pulp: Really? Why is this on the list?
    - English/Fargo: Who voted on these? I love the Cohens, but that movie isn't that good.
