Oscar Thoughts and Message to All My Readers

First of all, I just want to take the time to thank all my readers so much for reading my reviews, and supporting me over the years. It really means a lot to me. Although I have been called a film critic by a lot of great hubbers on here, I honestly don't see myself as one. Sure, I joke around about it with people, and I do try to take all my reviews as seriously as any film critic would. However, when I look deep down, I just see myself as a man that loves movies so much that he chooses to write about them online for people. If my reviews help anyone, then it's great. If it doesn't, then it doesn't bother me, as the real reason I write about movies is because it's something that I'm passionate about.

However, I do strive to get better during each review, and I hope that reflects through my writing. To quote Will Smith from "Hancock": "You people deserve better, so I will be better." Thank you all for another great year, as it's time to go over the Oscar results of 2012.

Unlike last year, I wasn't a hundred percent right in all my predictions, but that's the risk you gamble when you make a predictions list. I guess it's a good thing I didn't try my prediction skills up in Las Vegas or something, for this year. I'm just kidding.

I have to say that I was surprised to see Billy Crystal back hosting this year, and I'll definitely admit this year's ceremony was far better than last year's Oscars. However, I don't know if I'd say this was the best Award ceremony that I've seen from the Oscars if you want my honest opinion. Nonetheless, I did enjoy this year's ceremony very much, as I hope all my readers did as well.

Without further delay, let's go over the format of this hub before we get started. Like last year, I'll not only give you a chart of all the films/actors/etc that won each Oscar, but we'll also be going over my thoughts on this year's "Best Picture" winner; along with this year's Oscar snubs of 2012.

The Artist

Unlike last year, I couldn't agree more with the Oscar voters' pick to win "Best Picture." Not only was "The Artist" a charming and nice homage to cinema's earlier years, but it was also a great film that stands very well on it's own. Some people have compared this movie to "Singin' in the Rain", due to it's subject matter of dealing with cinema's transition from silent movies to talkies. Granted, I can see the similarities, but I would have to disagree. To quote myself from my "Top Ten Films of 2011" hub:

"Singin' in the Rain' dealt with the transition in a more positive aspect, and showcased the possibility of talkies as innovative. Whereas "The Artist", it seems to deal more with the aspect of how some actors simply couldn't, or refused, to make the transition. And even though the film did end on a redeeming note, the middle part of the movie was hardly upbeat as "Singin' in the Rain." But, I like how both films dealt with showing Hollywood's transition, as both seemed like very engaging movies to watch."

Although I doubt seriously this film will cause Hollywood to suddenly start making the transition to make more silent films, but it's nice to see the art of silent movies hasn't gone away completely. Therefore, I would like to ask all of you reading this hub to help me congratulate "The Artist" for winning this year's "Best Picture" award.

Oscar Snubs

Welcome to the final category of this hub, as we'll be going over this year's Oscar snubs. Some of these were suggested by some of hubpages esteemed writers, while some of these snubs are listed by me, as I'll be going over each of the Oscar snubs for this year.

Before we begin naming the Oscar snubs of this year, I would first like to thank the following hubpage writers that helped make this list possible with their insightful suggestion:

Uninvited Writer, Cogerson, Carl the Critic, innersmiff, thatmovieguy71, robwrite and Steve Lensman for their insightful contributions for this year's Oscar snubs category. Also, I would like to still thank psycheskinner, even though she didn't say any particular Oscar snub, as she merely mentioned that she wanted "Man or Muppet" to win "Best Original Song." However, I do thank her for the contribution anyway.

Without their contribution, this category would've not been possible to pull off. Well, maybe it would, but it wouldn't have been as great as it could have been. Therefore, without further delay, let's go over the Oscar snubs of 2012. By the way, I would highly recommend you read their work too, as you can just click on their names if anyone desires to check out their profiles.

Bridesmaids: This snub was suggested by "Carl the Critic" and "Uninvited Writer", as many of Carl's readers felt that this movie should have been nominated for an Oscar for "Best Picture." Although I don't know if I agree with that assessment. However, it's a very funny movie that meshes in the romantic comedy genre with the raunchy humor that many guys love in such films like "40 Year Old Virgin" and etc. It's definitely one of the better comedies out there, and to be honest, I would've preferred this movie being nominated over "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close" if I had a choice between those two exclusively.

The Ides of March: This suggestion was also made by "Carl the Critic" , who says that many of his readers were upset that this movie didn't get a nomination for "Best Picture." Like "Bridesmaids", I'm not sure if I'm on board with that snub entirely, but I can certainly see where his readers might be coming from. It was a deep political drama that featured the dark side of politics in general, and how sometimes ideals can easily become corrupted on capital hill.

50/50: Again, this was another suggestion by "Carl the Critic", who wishes that this movie would've gotten some sort of nomination, and I couldn't agree more. To be honest, I was deeply surprised that this film was snubbed out of a "Best Picture" nomination, and "Best Adapted Screenplay", as it truly was one of the most touching films of last year. Take in mind, I'm the sort of man that never allows movies to get to him emotionally on any level, so if a film like "50/50" can get to me, then that should tell you how powerful this movie is.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt: For this year, I thought the Academy Awards did a great job with the acting nominations, but like all nominations, there's always the possibility that someone is going to be left out. One of those poor souls was Joseph Gordon-Levitt. I remember when I first saw him on "3rd Rock from the Sun", I knew immediately that he had the potential to become a big name actor someday. Now, I'm glad he's proven me right so far, as he not only shows that he can carry a movie, but he can also deliver a performance that's up there with any of the actors that were nominated. It's a real shame that he was snubbed this year...

Drive: This suggestion comes from Cogerson and innersmiff, who both claim that "Drive" was an outstanding film. Quite frankly, I don't disagree with any of them. Not only was "Drive" one of the best films of 2011, but it should have rightfully been nominated for "Best Picture", "Best Cinematography", "Film Editing", and "Sound Mixing." Not only was this arguably one of the most beautifully rendered films of last year, but it's helluva a lot better than half the films that were nominated for "Best Picture" this year.

Although I know some of my readers might be wondering why I didn't include this film in my top ten films of 2011, the only thing I can tell you is that whenever you compile a top ten list of movies, then you're always going to end up leaving a film out. Unfortunately, "Drive" was one of those films that got left out of my top ten movies of last year. However, if I did a top twenty movies of 2011 instead, then "Drive" would've definitely been penciled in at number eleven.

Ryan Gosling: Again, this is another suggestion by Cogerson. And to be honest, I couldn't agree with him more. Although I can understand how the other actors got nominated for "Best Lead Actor" this year, but Ryan Gosling definitely should have been nominated for his performance in "Drive." Not only did he deliver arguably one of the best performances of his career, but it one of those kind of performances that'll stick with you long after the film ends.

Albert Brooks: Here's another great suggestion by Cogerson folks, as I can't say I disagree with him on this one. As the old saying goes, every protagonist is only as great as the villain he has to confront. Needless to say, Albert Brooks plays a perfect villain in this movie. Not only did he have a demeanor that was cunning, but he also managed to come off as intimidating through his performance as well; a definite snub for this year's "Best Supporting Actor" if you ask me.

Andy Serkis: Although I'm sure I'm in the minority here, but I honestly felt that Andy deserved a nomination for "Best Actor" in his motion capture role, as Caesar in "Rise of the Planet of the Apes." Sure, it was a long shot to wish for, but I was pleasantly surprised how lifelike he was able to make a CGI character seem on the big screen.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes: Although I am happy that Hugo won this year's Oscar for "Best Visual Effects", I was also equally disappointed that "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" didn't take it. Not only were the special effects ground breaking, but some might even argue that it pushes the technological aspects of motion capture CGI to a whole new level. Surely, a big snub on the Oscar voters' part.

J. Edgar: This suggestion comes from Steve Lensman. Who not only points out how Clint Eastwood always tailors his movies for the Oscars, but he also suggests that maybe it should have at least gotten a nomination for "Best Make-Up." I'm not sure if I buy into the "Best Make-Up" part, but I can definitely see how this film would be deemed an Oscar snub by many for "Best Picture." Although I don't know if I'd go on record to say this was the best bio-pic that I've seen, but it's definitely one of the more interesting ones nonetheless.

Leonardo DiCaprio: Steve Lensman also says that he remembers hearing how people were claiming that DiCaprio would be the guy to beat around Oscar time for his role in "J. Edgar." And to be honest, I wouldn't have been that upset if he was nominated for "Best Actor", as he definitely carries the film quite well.

We Need to Talk About Kevin: This suggestion comes from innersmiff, who claims "We Need to Talk About Kevin" was one of the best films of last year, so it was definitely snubbed out of a potential "Best Picture" nomination. To be honest, I can't comment on this movie, as I haven't seen it. However, innersmiff always struck me as a man that knew a lot about films, so I'm sure he's right on the money with this one.

Melancholia: Here's another great suggestion by innersmiff, who claims this movie was snubbed for a "Best Picture" nomination. Again, I can't comment on this movie, as I have yet to see it. However, based on what I've read and heard about it, I think innersmiff has a good point about this film being obviously snubbed this year.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy: Although I'm not sure if I agree with this suggestion, but I can certainly see why innersmiff would say this film was obviously a snubbed movie for "Best Picture." Not only was it one of the most engaging spy thrillers in a good while, but it offers a deeply complex story that could easily rival any of the films nominated for this year's "Best Picture."

13 Assassins: Sadly, I haven't seen this movie, even though I've heard nothing but great things about it. However, innersmiff has seen it, and he claims this is by far the best foreign language film that he's seen from last year. Therefore, it looks like the Oscars definitely missed out on nominating this film for "Best Foreign Language Movie."

Senna: Here's another great suggestion by innersmiff, who says that this movie was snubbed for a well deserved "Best Documentary" nomination. Although, I can't say I've ever seen the movie, but from looking it up on imdb, it definitely seems like a documentary that's well worth checking out.

Another Earth: Although I'm sure I'm in the minority here when I say this, but I honestly thought this movie was snubbed for a "Best Original Screenplay" nomination, and arguably should have won too. Granted, I know the film suffered from being relatively obscure, but the story was arguably one of the best of last year if you want my honest opinion. Of course, I know some of my readers will ask why didn't I put it in my top ten films of last year if that's the case. However, if I had to rank this film among my favorites of last year, it would've made number twelve behind "Drive."

Charlize Theron: If Melissa McCarthy can get a nomination, for "Best Supporting Actress", in a comedy like"Bridesmaids", then I see no reason why Charlize Theron can't get a lead actress nomination for "Young Adult." Not only was this film arguably one of the funniest movies of last year, but Charlize Theron delivered a great performance last year in this movie that was well worth being acknowledged by the Oscars. Hell, she was a helluva a lot better than Meryl Streep in "The Iron Lady" if you want me to be brutally honest. Not saying that Meryl Streep didn't deserve to be nominated, but the script that she had to work with held back her performance a bit. Whereas Charlize Theron had a great script to work with in "Young Adult", and came out looking like the better actress between the two. Then again, I may have already answered my own question on that one...

Michelle Williams: Not only did she take on the iconic role of Marilyn Monroe, but she practically became the legendary actress entirely in her role in "My Week with Marilyn." Not only was this one of the best films of last year, but it was also one of the most introspective looks into one of Hollywood's earliest icons. It's a shame that Meryl Streep won "Best Actress" this year, as Michelle Williams clearly deserved the Oscar for her role as Marilyn Monroe.

Viola Davis: If Michelle Williams didn't win the award, then Viola should have rightfully had the "Best Actress" Oscar. Not only did she deliver a great performance in "The Help", but she was one of the few actresses that managed to turn an average film into arguably one of the best of last year.

The Tree of Life: Although this film was nominated for "Best Picture", it should've also been nominated for "Best Visual Effects" and "Film Editing", as it's truly one of the more visually unique films out there.

The Conspirator: Although this film suffers from being relatively obscure during 2011, it's still a great movie to watch, as it deals with a controversial subject matter and themes that most film makers wouldn't dare to explore. I think it definitely deserved a nomination for "Best Costume Designs" and arguably "Best Picture." Not only did the film bring up many perplexing questions about our own history, but it's amazing how well the movie reflects the current corruption within our government in today's era. In my opinion, this definitely ranks as the best bio-pic of last year.

James McAvoy: It's a real shame that "The Conspirator" suffers from being an obscure movie, as I thought James McAvoy delivered a great performance worthy of some accolades. Unfortunately, it looks like he wasn't even mentioned this year, but I can't say it wasn't expected considering how relatively low under the radar that "The Conspirator" was as a film.

Max von Sydow: Although I'm glad that Christopher Plummer got an Oscar, the sad reality is that Max von Sydow was clearly the better supporting actor this year. Not only did he deliver a great performance, but he did it without even saying a single freaking word. I don't care who you are, but that's great acting right there.

Rio: Although I do agree with most of the nominations for "Best Animated Feature", I can't help but feel that "Rio" was sadly left out. Truly, one of the better animated movies of last year by far, as it certainly deserved a nomination over "Kung Fu Panda 2." Don't get me wrong, I'm not here to hate on "Kung Fu Panda 2", or say it was a bad movie. Seriously, if anyone even bothered to read my review, then you'll know I gave it a three out of four.

Although "Kung Fu Panda 2" did have a good story structure, while introducing new elements that were not present in the previous film. Plus, it did amp up the references to the Chinese culture. However, that still doesn't take away from the fact that the animation is still basically at the same level of quality as the first one, and like most sequels, it rips off certain story elements of it's prequel.

For example, Po is part of some half baked fictional Chinese legend that allegedly says he's the only one that can defeat a certain enemy AGAIN. Like the last movie, he doubts himself at first, and ends up joining some of his heroes that he meets to kick bad guy butt. Again, audiences that saw the first movie have seen this story arc before; hence it's not as great as it's predecessor.

To be honest, I think the only reason why people even say this movie is better than the first one is because like "Home Alone 2", it takes basically the same freaking story as it's predecessor, and puts it on a larger scale with a few extra plot twists here and there to keep it interesting. That's it. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't condemn anyone who disagrees with me, but to me, "Kung Fu Panda 2" comes off as another sequel that rips off elements of it's first movie. Not that there's anything wrong with that, as I've said the exact same thing about "Rocky II" ripping off elements of "Rocky", but I still love both movies. Therefore, I wouldn't breath too much into this analysis.

Yes, I do understand that the movie delves deeper into Po's past, and brings up the concept of family. But in the end, the film still follows the same cliched story structure of the previous film. Meaning, you have Po become part of an ancient Chinese prophecy, where he's destined to beat up the bad guy. He's cocky at first, but starts to doubt himself. He meets more of his heroes, whom he teams up with eventually. Then around the end, he somehow finds the confidence to kick bad guy butt. Seriously, we've seen this before in "Kung Fu Panda" already.

Granted, "Kung Fu Panda 2" is a good movie, and I have no problem with it being considered one of the best animated films of last year. But to say it's better than "Rio?"

A film that not only featured great state of the art 3-D animation, but also delivered a very engaging character driven story arc....I don't think so. No, "Rio" is clearly the superior film between the two. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad people enjoy "Kung Fu Panda 2", but it's not better than "Rio." Not by a long shot.

Mission Impossible- Ghost Protocol: Although I know this might seem like a strange pick, but please hear me out. The movie's action sequences were very well shot, as the cinematography made the viewer feel as if they were right there in the action with Tom Cruise during this movie. Therefore, it's a real shame that the Oscar voters don't normally acknowledge action films, as this one definitely had some great cinematography work to warrant a nomination in that category.

Berenice Bejo: As I said in my "Oscar Predictions" that if I had my way, she would win the "Best Supporting Actress" award, and I still stand by what I said. Not only did she deliver arguably one of the more memorable performances last year, but the chemistry she had with Jean Dujardin in "The Artist" really made the film come off as a masterpiece on screen. No offense to Octavia Spencer, but in my mind, Berenice Bejo should've won the "Best Supporting Actress" role here.

Moneyball: As I said before in my "Oscar Predictions", I thought "Moneyball" definitely deserved the Oscar for "Best Adapted Screenplay" this year. Not only did it tell an engagingly deep story about the statistical and financial side of baseball, but it did it in such a deep and thought provoking way that one could argue that this might be the best sports film that we've seen in a good while.

Shailene Woodley: Although she was nominated for "Best Supporting Actress" in this year's Golden Globes, and other prestigious critical awards. It sadly seems like she was severely snubbed out of this year's "Best Supporting Actress" category. Not only did she portray the sensibilities of a rebellious young troubled teenager, in "The Descendants", but she also manages to portray the tenderness and vulnerability that allows the audience to buy into her conflicted emotions. Truly, she was one of the best actresses of last year that should have been recognized by the Oscars.

Michael Shannon: Here's a great suggestion by one of hubpages newest film writers, thatmovieguy71, as he's quick to point out that Michael Shannon was snubbed for a well deserved "Best Actor" nomination for his role in "Take Shelter." I can't say that I've ever seen this movie, but thatmovieguy71 does know a lot about films, so I'm sure he's right on the money about this snub.

Brad Pitt: Although Brad was nominated for a "Best Actor" nomination with "Moneyball", thatmovieguy71 claims he should have also garnered a nomination for "Best Supporting Actor" for "The Tree of Life." To be honest, I couldn't agree more. Although I would argue that "Moneyball" features the best performance of Brad's career, I do think that he delivers a great performance in "The Tree of Life" as well. Conveying symbolically the way of nature, as the film poetically points out that the only ways to live through life is the way of nature or the way of grace. Needless to say, Brad Pitt plays his part perfectly in "The Tree of Life", as it's a shame the Oscars didn't nominate him for both "Supporting Actor" and "Lead Actor" this year.

Jessica Chastain: Like Brad Pitt, she was already nominated for an Oscar this year. However, thatmovieguy71 claims that she should have gained a nomination for "Best Supporting Actress" for her role in "The Tree of Life." Although I didn't think of that at first, but in hindsight, I couldn't agree more. If anything, I'd argue that she deserved a nomination for her role in "The Tree of Life" more than her role in "The Help." Sure, she was great in her role in "The Help", but it wasn't anywhere near as powerful as what audiences were treated to in "The Tree of Life."

Rango: Here's a great suggestion by one of hubpages best film critics, Robwrite. He mentions that "Rango" was another film that was snubbed out of a well deserved "Best Picture" nomination. To be honest, I have some mixed feelings about this suggestion. On the one hand, the film is good enough to make a very strong argument to support Robwrite's statment. But on the other hand, it would've given away the winner of the "Best Animated Feature" category this year. However, I do agree with him that this was arguably one of the best animated movies of last year, and it certainly deserved a nomination over "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close."

Win Win: Unfortunately, this was another obscure film in 2011 that drastically got over looked. Not only did this movie feature arguably one of the more engaging stories of last year, but it was definitely snubbed out of a "Best Picture" and "Best Original Screenplay" nomination. For those wondering why I didn't put it in my top ten films of last year, then all I can say is that there's always a possibility a film will get left out of a top ten list. However, if I had to rank this movie, I'd probably put it as my fifteenth favorite film of last year.

Paul Giamatti: Although I do agree with most of the acting nominations, it's a real shame that Paul Giamatti got snubbed this year for "Best Actor", as he gave a great Oscar worthy performance in last year's "Win Win."

Wow, Steven, this is a great article on the Oscars. I knew you'd do a good job which is why I looked for you this morning. Great job and voted up.

You did a great job with all the detail here.

Unfortunately, in my opinion this was another dismal year for the film industry, as it lacked entertainment.

I have not found a movie worthy of spending twenty dollars to see it and have popcorn and a soft drink.

@ib radmasters

thanks. I'm glad you liked the hub I put together. :)

as far as finding a movie worth spending twenty dollars on, all I can say is that's a lot of money. I know down in texas, the most i ever pay for a film is like 12 bucks, but to pay 20? that's really unheard of. I'm sorry to hear that movie prices are that high where you are, as i'm not sure if any movie is worth that much to see in a theater. sure, that would be steal on dvd/blue ray, but I'm not sure about paying that much to see it once in a theater, as that's too pricey for me.

anyway, thanks for stopping by, as i appreciate you taking the time to read my hub. :)

For the second year in a row....I am very happy to be included in your Oscar wrapup hub.....glad you agree with me about my snubs I listed....and it is interesting reading other hubbers opinions about the snubs.....I think the Oscars need to go back to just 5 Best Picture nominess....this year there really only seemed like 3 movies had a chance to win the award....Hugo, Artist and The Descandents.....the remaining 6 Best Picture nominees were complete no factors during the Oscar voting season and the Oscar telecast....I think watering down the category hurts it more than it helps it.

Granted that will cause more snubs....but I would rather be upset about Albert Brooks not getting nominated than trying to figure out how Incredibly Loud and Uncomfortably Close got a Best Picture nomination.

I think Albert Brooks had the best Twitter comment about his lack of a nomination..."You really don't like me...You really don't like me"....a spoof of the famous Sally Field acceptance speech.

Awesome job on this hub and your selection hubs....they were so good I decided to not do a hub on that subject as it would have paled compared to your work....voted up and awesome.


thatmovieguy71 4 years ago

Great hub, Stevennix2001. I am relatively new to hubpages and I enjoy reading the hubs of other movie buffs out there. I agree with many of your snub suggestions. I might add Michael Shannon for Take Shelter as a snub for Best Actor nomination. Also, Brad Pitt and Jessica Chastain were both worthy of Supporting nominations for The Tree of Life.

@cogerson

Thanks Cogerson. I'm glad you liked the the final oscar hub for this year. I think you do make a very good point about how the oscars should go back to 5 nominations again, as this year it was fairly ridiculous. Plus, it kind of takes away the prestige of it to some degree to where even if you're film is great, there's no guarantee it'll get a nomination. Whereas now, any film that's halfway decent seems like it can get a nomination like "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close"; which never should have been nominated, as you said.

As for Albert Brooks comment, I'm glad to hear he has a good sense of humor about the whole thing, but it's a real shame he didn't get a nomination this year. Well both him and Gosling that is.

Anyway, thanks for contributing to some of the suggestions to the Oscar snubs this year, and thanks again for the compliments. :)

Hi Steven; The one I thought should have been nominated for Best Picture but wasn't was "Rango". I'd have included that instead of "Extremely loud and incredibly close."

Most of my Oscar picks won. I was surprised that Michelle Williams didn't win best actress and that "Rise of the Planet of the Apes' didn't win best SFX, but other than that, I was overall happy with the results. No big 'what where they thinking' moments, like when "Shakespeare in Love" beat "Private Ryan".

Yeah, that's true. I still can't believe the oscar voters nominated "Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close", as that film was way over rated if you ask me. Plus, I'm not even sure if Meryl Streep even deserved to be nominated this year...let alone..win the Oscar for "Best Actress", as this year should have belonged to either viola davis or michelle williams. oh well, what can you do?

I appreciate the suggestion rob, as I'll definitely add it to the snub part of this hub, as well as link your profile to it too. anyway, thanks for stopping by again buddy, as it's always great seeing ya.
