I still think Ralph Fiennes deserved some sort of recognition for Grand Budapest Hotel. 

 Thumbup Fiennes in GBH and Michael Fassbender in FRANK were easily my two favorite performances of the year.

I thought Unbroken would get more "important" nominations being the kinda movie it is. Would not consider it the best movie, but at least Jack O'Connell should have gotten a nod.

The critical response to it was pretty "meh" if I recall and SNIPER stole a lot of its hype. O'Connell and Ishihara were both great though; it would've been nice to see them get nods if nothing else.

And STILL no Oscar for Roger Deakins! *facepalm*  Bluesad

One of the worst things about Award Season is that people who consistently do great work tend to be the ones most overlooked - there's this attitude of "Oh we'll get to him/her next year" and then every year they don't, and then said person finally gets a Thalberg trophy and a kick out the door.  (See: Charles Chaplin, Peter O'Toole, Alfred Hitchcock)
And there's also the fact that Hollywood is a petty, clique-y, self-important industry and they'll shun talented people for not playing nice or projecting the "wrong" image (See: Mickey Rourke, Alfred Hitchcock again.)

I don't know which attitude is responsible for  The Deakins Situation. If it's the latter I am inordinately curious as to what he did. Sleep with one of the Weinstein's wives? Badmouth Clooney? Or is it something even more petty? Does he have a 10-inch cock? I bet he has a 10-inch cock.

I haven't seen Unbroken but was it worthy? I mean it was always going to be a pretty tall order beating Emmanuel Lubezki this year given how crazy it would have been shooting Birdman. Don't get me wrong, I love Deakins, but he always seems to get nominated in really strong years which makes it all the tougher.

Yeah, Dean, that's what I thought, too. I understand his being passed over has turned into this noticeable anomaly, but you can't give him an Oscar just because he's been nominated a bunch of times before and it's "his turn," either.

"The basic plot is that Donna Speir and Hope Marie Carlton, the two undercover DEA agent Playboy Playmates from the last movie, are still running around in jungle shorts, cowboy boots and spaghetti strap T-shirts, firing their machine guns at drug smugglers, Filipino communist guerrillas, and corrupt federal agents while their two friends, Lisa London and Miss May 1984 Patty Duffek, lounge around the pool a lot and talk on speaker phones that look like fax machines."-Joe Bob on SAVAGE BEACH

Right, because that never happens. THE DEPARTED is Martin Scorcese's directorial masterpiece and Al Pacino never turned in a greater performance than SCENT OF A WOMAN.
I don't want to begrudge Luzbeki his win, he's not the problem. The problem is the Oscars have made an annual joke of Deakins and that's irritating as hell. The man has 3 BAFTAS, 4 ASCs, 3 NSFCs, 2 Satellites and trophies from about 40 other organizations. The Academy needs to either acknowledge him or stop adding him to the also-rans just because he's a name they recognize.

I really think makeup should've gone to Foxcatcher this year.
