Ok garbage is maybe a little strong, the performances were good but this film is absolutely NOT worthy of an Oscar!

Shame on the Academy for being cowards after the race card was pulled so many times last year!

This film pushed the agenda to such an extent.... A gay, black, bullied teenager/man with a crack addict mother in the 'hood'. I realise that now it is an unforgivable crime to be born white but give me a break...

I know I will get flamed for this post but it's ridiculous and I have lost all faith in the Oscars.

Please do not even bother calling me racist because you look a fool...

i view the oscars as an exercise in mutual mastrubation - so as long as i dont have to participate or watch - it doesnt really bother me

Ummm, you actually ever had faith in the Oscars in the first place, or any of these self serving elitist awards ceremonies they have on TV????

The rating the Oscars usually bring in have been declining over the last few years, this year being no exception, in fact this years was worse then last years rating.

It's all garbage anyways..

OK You are not a racist but you are quick to avoid that appellation - why?

What is your real agenda seeing that you are great at spotting the agenda of others.


Have you seen all of the Oscar - nominated films? Sorry, but that is the best way to ascertain the validity of your cinematographic knowledge. I frankly do not have the time to view all of the films that are nominated and quite often the films that I really love are not nominated to Oscars generally. I am a Sci fi buff and like indie films , both genres are not well received by most critics be it books or films.

Quick to avoid it because people like you write 'what is your real agenda'?? I have no agenda other then to state that the film was not worthy of an Oscar as it was not very good. Simple as that really.

So please stop before you even start

Make a film about the Holocaust/Black Slavery/Marginalised but Moral Ethnic/Fluid Gender and/or Sexuality and the Oscar is assured. It doesn't have to be good or well acted.

*Positive discrimination* is a patronising concept ...... that something is

not good enough to win on its own merits.



Then after last years debacle, I suppose winning on merit goes out of the

window......win regardless!

So why didn't fences win? Why didn't hidden figures win? Why didn't denzel win?
Viola did win best supporting....moonlight was a very good movie

Maybe because whatever the winning film is about is the current cause celebre.

Threads like this is why the world needs to end. Or at least the internet.

It's movies. Who cares?

Threads like this are exactly why the Oscar's still exist. Stop paying attention and the tradition will die a slow death.

Who cares.

P.S. I watched the film last night. Waste of time.

Totally agree. I haven't cared in years and I don't to movie theaters and pay exorbitant prices and I hate award shows.

But, then, no one cares what I think.

These grossly boastful self aggrandizing displays are really for that entertainment community-the continuing lack of interest outside is fast deteriorating-let them continue to dissipate-along with their proudful political and social egos.

They'll soon learn we don't care anymore. Bye bye.

Dead pool should have one best movie
Contemporary clever witty and relevant to today's culture
Movies are about entertaining, they don't have to be about preaching...or was deadpool last years movie.
Oscars, who gives a toss
I couldn't name a single Oscar winning movie from the last 5 years

So it started as - "how dare these liberals try to stop Casey Affleck's award for the movie just because people accused him of sexual assault!" and now that he won it changes to "how dare these liberals give Casey Affleck an award for a movie"..? lmao
