  1. Hurt Locker is cleaning up nice so far

  2. Taylor Lautner/Kristen Stewart: Horror – - Hasn't really been recognized since “The Exorcist” picked up two awards.

    Please explain to me then why there were clips from “The Silence of the Lambs.” Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster both received Oscars for Hannibal Lector and Special Agent Clarice Starling, respectively.

    I saw Kathy Bates hobbling James Caan in “Misery.” Bates won an Oscar for that role.

    Why was there a picture of Lautner and Stewart from “New Moon?” I don't recall that being a horror movie.

    I saw Gary Oldman as “Dracula,” and I know he doesn't have an Oscar, but the movie does in Costume and Make-Up.

    “Beetlejuice” had a little scene as well… Well that could just be me. I found that movie more of a comedy than a horror. I think “Batman Returns” is more in the horror genre than “Beetlejuice.”

    Is this just me being anal retentive about the phrasing of the lead in or are these legitimate complaints about presenting false information about the awarded prestige of a genre of film?

  3. Ugh, why do I always feel disappointed after the awards… every damn year!

  4. Wow!!! Maybe Kathryn Bigelow should be directing The First Avenger Captain America. Just kidding.

  5. Guess I was one of the 15% that got it right..

  6. Wow…..Star Trek won one Yeeeeiiiiiiiii ..!!!!
    This movie was my favorite of 2009

  7. Gary Oldman is one of those actors who has been SERIOUSLY overlooked by the Academy. The man is amazing in whatever role he takes.

  8. That's the first Oscar EVER won by a Star Trek movie.

  9. I hated how Mickey Rourke didn't win last year…

  10. This years Oscars doesn't seem that enjoyable, movie selection wise.I haven't had cable for years, so I make do with post-Oscar YouTube. Now lets see what happens, i am very much excited.

  11. I completely agree with you! He turns out spectacular role after spectacular role. I never seen him give the same performance twice (with the exception of the “Harry Potter” series and “Batman” of course). Sid Vicious, Lee Harvey Oswald, Dracula, Drexl Spivey (personal favorite), Ludwig van Beethoven, Ivan Korshunov, etc.

    Then he makes movies that I normally would write off just a little more enjoyable with his dedication to the character. “The Book of Eli,” “The Fifth Element,” “The Unborn,” “Lost in Space,” etc.

    He's simply the best.

  12. My fav of his was 'The Professional'. When he took the drugs and did that thing with his neck while looking up at the ceiling camera….KILLER!

    It totally sucks that he hasn't even been nominated.

  13. I can't believe I forgot about “The Professional!” Yes! Gary Oldman will (unfortunately) only get a lifetime achievment Oscar. Or he'll get the Martin Scorcese Oscar. You know, he'll get one for a movie he delivered a good performance in, but it will be the Academy saying 'Sorry for overlooking you for all those years.' Like how Scorcese received his for “The Departed” when it really should've been for “Raging Bull.”
