My biggest Oscar peeve is when they gave the supporting actress Oscar to Whoopi Goldberg for "Ghost."

They might as well have renamed the award: "Hey, sorry we completely thumbed our nose at The Color Purple a few years back. You should have won then. But here, here's an Oscar for your recent, hammy role."

And i totally agree about Whoopi, by the way.

Lila, you are quick on the lists!

Yeah, i think with this category, they like to give it to somebody young or of course, somebody who's been previously overlooked. It doesn't seem to be based on performance. Well, sometimes it works out that way.

If i remember correctly, in the early years of the Oscars, they used to have an award for Best Young Actor. Seems like the supporting category is where these kids go now. I mean, wasn't Haley Joel Osment the main character in The Sixth Sense, but he got nominated in a supporting role? Oh man, another can of worms here.

That's essentially what the Oscars have become nowadays.

A comedy can be nominated, but it'll never win. Forget about science fiction.

That's really sad because some of the best movies have fallen in those genres. Speaking of which, how did 2001 not win the Oscar? Why would a film that makes you laugh or think be any less worthy than a regular drama? It's absurd.

This year really angers me because anyone who has seen Wild At Heart will tell you how amazing and challenging Diane Ladd's role was.

Exactly. Classics like Young Frankenstein, The Jerk, and Blade Runner should be Oscar-worthy.

The Jerk is awesome, guys.

I did not know what that meant until I made that joke at a farm.

The tour guide and my parents were not happy with me.

What about David Lynch never winning anything?

The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Drive all were nominated but never won. That is pathetic.

David Lynch is talented, but I've never really gotten into any of his work. He's a little too out there for me.
