      Everyone knows the Oscars are a load of s**t anyway. They are not the benchmark of quality movie making.

      I could be wrong but didn't one of the guys in City of God become a photographer and not a policeman?

      If you're including Drive, Albert Brooks should have been nominated for best supporting actor. Best performance in that film.

      a little gripe: My Darling Clementine was John Ford & Henry Fonda, not the hilarious mixed up names you've mistakingly written.

      ...and i hate to be an a*****e, but the 'editing' of Memento's non-linear narrative was done at script stage, as it is with most films. So, it should have just as much right to win a script oscar as editing, on those grounds. but as i've always felt, if you play Memento back to front, its a pretty formulaic noir-thriller.

      This article shows what a complete joke the Oscars are. How about this years Oscars where Ben Affleck wasn't even nominated for best director for Argo.

      Most of these in the list are contraversial and wouldn't pass muster with the ancient, easily frightened Oscar voters. It says it all how much the Oscars favour mostly bullsh/t over quality. Pacino should have won for Godfather 1 and 2 or Dog Day Afternoon or Serpico, not the sh/tty Rom-Com that no one remembers. Scorcese won for the deeply generic The Departed not Goodfellas of Raging BUll or Taxi Driver. The fact that Shicago won an Oscar is just a joke.

      In City of God, one of the guys didn't become a cop, but a photographer. You should probably fix that. Leo deserved to cash in that nomination for best supporting actor in Grape, but his other 3 nominations were rightfully not rewarded with an Oscar. He's a great actor, but rarely an outstanding one... I'm not that surprised by many of the names listed here not having won an Oscar, TBH. I certainly didn't see any MAJOR tragedies in the Óh gawd that SHOULD have won!!!' category. I do feel The Grandmasters should have won Best Cinematography last night, BY FARRRR, but perhaps the Academy only watched the butchered version of the movie, or perhaps they're just a bunch of idiots. Either way, it's probably the best looking movie I've ever seen.
