Norton didn't win for American History X, but he damn well should have.

Incredible performance.

Don't get me started. I still have nightmares about Roberto Benigni winning.

What an unbelievable travesty. He was like the worst of the 5 nominees...

I meant the Constricting Anus award, my mistake.

Tim Robbins totally should have won that for Shawshank.

How about neither Robert Redford or Dustin Hoffman being nominated in the '77 Oscars?

It was a tough year with Rocky, Taxi Driver, and Network, but there were double noms for Network for Actor (Peter Finch, who deservedly won, and William Holden) and Supp. Actor (Mickey and Paulie for Rocky).

I'd have taken Network over Rocky, but that's just me and I still haven't seen Taxi Driver yet.

Burt Young had no business in that lineup, and should have been replaced by Hal Hobrook. Also, Rocky was the worst film in that lineup, not even close. The biggest insult was Avildsen winning director, though. Who in god's name thought his work was more accomplished than Lumet's or Pakula's? And don't even get me started that Marty wasn't nominated. This should have been his first of at least 5 deserved WINS.

I don't know that the acting of Redford or Hoffman was really what drove ATPM to greatness. They were ciphers, to a certain extent, and I think the supporting perfs were what really made the thing. Because they're charismatic start, it made watching the intake of all the information a bit easier.

Jack Warden ftw.

Has a director been more buttfucked by Oscar "losses" in the '70s than Sidney Lumet?
