It takes a good actor...
...to play a bad actor.
DiCaprio was brilliant.
He was just playing himself.share
Yeah, that's why he's an Oscar winner.share
So is Cher...share
Yeah, but female actors can win Oscars by giving average at best performances. It all depends on the right connections. Kim Basinger, Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Connelly, Allison Janney, for example. Were any of those Oscar worthy, really?You couldn't name many as bad or average for men wins.share
Cuba Gooding Jr., Roberto Benigni, Daniel Day-Lewis, Al Pacino, Tom Hanks, Jack Nicholson, Sean Penn.share
Wait, are you saying Daniel Day-Lewis was not worthy of an Oscar in There Will be Blood?share
Yes, absolutely. One of the worst overactors there is. He didn't deserve it for Lincoln either.share
Hmmmm, I love his performance in There Will be Blood. Throughout its runtime I feel completely immersed in his character and the time period. I would think that surely there were people who dressed and acted in that way in those times. What do you think?
Well, I'm sure there were mentally ill people with a maniacal eccentricity back then. But he didn't even seem like a real person to me. And he certainly wasn't like that in the book, so it's just Daniel Day-Lewis doing his overacting shtick again.
Dude, I agreed with you for DiCaprio... and then you had to include Day-Lewis and Jack Nicholson in the list of "not worthy Oscar winners". From that point, I knew you were simply a moronwith shitty judgment about acting.share
Day-Lewis and DiCaprio are exactly the same. Put on a weird costume and make-up and overact like a madman. Jack Nicholson did not deserve his Oscar for As Good As It Gets. That was not acting.
"I knew you were simply a moronwith shitty judgment about acting."
If you were in any way educated you wouldn't have to resort to such language. Thanks for proving you're exactly what you accuse me of being.
Dude, calm down. Your talking to a lady. If you disagree just be civil.share
Aaawwwwww.... boo-fucking-hoo, she has a vagina! :o
And where exactly does the concept of equality go which women want so much? Especially if she is anonymous on Internet and there is no way to know she is a lady? Even my girlfriend laughs her ass off at your comment... white knight.
Ok. Be that way then.share
Are you seriously implying that Jack didn't deserve to win for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest?share
No, I'm implying he didn't deserve to win an Oscar for As Good As It Gets. Yeah, seriously...share
So at you agree that Jack deserves at least one Oscar. Well, then it's not all bad. Oh, and Pacino deserved to win for Scent of a Woman. I never understood how anybody could not love that performance (or film).share
And I don't understand how anybody could love that performance or film, to be honest. So there you go.🤷♀️share
Really unbelievable. I'm guessing you're not into sentimental comedic dramas, since both As Good as it Gets and Scent of a Woman are very similar. But, different strokes for different folks, and no problem with that.share
The movie got mixed reviews when it was released, so it's really not that unbelievable.
I was only referring to Nicholson's performance in As Good As It Gets, although I admit it's not really my kind of movie.
Black panther was nominated for an oscar...let that sink in..share
Why does everyone act like Black Panther is the worst movie ever nominated for best picture? It's not. Not even close. It didnt deserve to get nominated, but so many worse movies have been nominated than that. Hell, some worse movies have even won.share
"Yeah, that's why he's an Oscar winner."
More time goes, more meaningless this becomes.
How is it meaningless? Who are these terrible winners that are making them meaningless?share
Okay we will put something straight here: it is not so much about them being "terrible" or something. I know, I get where you go with this. People DO exaggerate the meaninglessness of the Academy Awards. They don't reward totally unworthy people (well... depending on the category of course).
This being said, more time goes, more they give awards following a political agenda. Many of the winners nowadays win because they fit right in the social atmosphere of our time.
The best example for me: Moonlight winning over La La Land. NO, Moonlight was ABSOLUTELY not a bad movie. But better than La La Land? No freaking way. More SJW/racially/sexual orientation friendly? Totally checked. Back in the 60s/70s, no way this movie would have won best picture.
The only thing I really want to say: today people are SO easily offended and every single big productions follow this political agenda just in case that they don't offend anyone. And Oscars don't go in another directions on this. We want to satisfy every single minority group no matter if it is totally necessary or not.
I have a gay friend who completely think that this new general mindset is totally brainwashed and stupid because it does everything but promoting equality.
Now... because the OP talked precisely about DiCaprio and his Oscar win: Leo DOES deserve to be an Oscar winner... but he won totally not for the right movie. His performance in The Revenant was awerage at best. The guy has done way better performances, and won simply because of the hype.
I think I said everything I had to say.
"No freaking way. More SJW/racially/sexual orientation friendly? Totally checked. Back in the 60s/70s, no way this movie would have won best picture."
But doesn't that mean that back in the 70's the Oscar's were just as politically motivated, just the reverse of today? The 70's Oscar's would never award a movie about gay blacks. Today's would. They're both politically motivated.
I definitely agree politics and stuff came into play with Black Panther, but let's be real, reasons other than merit have always been a part of the oscars. Even if it's just, "We love this actor, so let's vote for him even though his performance sucks". Take Robert Duvall in The Judge. There is absolutely no way in freaking hell that is oscar worthy performance. But he was nominated. The reason? He's a well respected and loved veteran actor. That's it. I'd call that just as bad as nominating Black Panther because of politics. Or as you talk about, DiCaprio in the Revenant. Even though lots of people would agree its just a solid performance, people voted for him because they like HIM and his career. But people dont get mad at that like they do Black Panther.
I guess the point I'm trying to make is I just think its unnecessary to make such a big issue of it. People get so mad about Black Panther being nominated its ridiculous. Like the poster above who mentioned it. "Black Panther got nominated, let that sink in". So what? Yeah it's annoying, now move on. If you're that bothered by Black Panther, then you should have been bothered with the Oscar's for years and years. Because they've always done it.
You gotta pay the troll tollshare
