Not as excited as I'd hoped to be.


I really liked the walk and I was hoping for some nominations it doesn't look like it got any


I'm happy and hoping  drew Goddard wins for The Martian. Drew Goddard worked with Joss whedon. He wrote 5 eps of Buffy and 5 eps angel. He and Joss wrote Cabin in the woods and drew directed it. Basically drew is an extension of joss so if drew wins joss wins too!  8)  (Q-Logic  :P  )

I want Stallone to win Best Supporting Actor.  For a while there, he had an unbroken run of getting a Golden Raspberry Nomination for almost every film he did since Rhinestone in 1983.  It's about time he gets a real award!

Janet Huber (the first Auny Viv) pretty much put Jada Pinkett (and Will Smith) on blast for her video.


I don't disagree with what she has to say but spike and nada are fifth about the oscars needing a shake up.

Things looked good a couple years ago but the recent backslide is disappointing.

Straight outta Compton deserved a nom...  Concussion did not (at least that's what I hear from my friends who have seen it) everyone warned me away from it.... They all saw it for free and said it wasn't worth the ticket
Price. It was too slow and too dry and the focus shoulda been on the players not the dr.

Oscar-winning actor George Clooney has accused the Academy Awards of "moving in the wrong direction" amid controversy over lack of diversity.

For the second year running, no black or minority actors have been nominated in the four Oscars acting categories.

Star Wars actress Lupita Nyong'o also said she is "disappointed by the lack of inclusion" in the nominations.

Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs vowed to review its membership as stars pledged to boycott the ceremony.

I don't want the academy to vote them in just beacause they are black I mean if the performances are worthy then they should be included. 

Michael B. Jordan have a good performance in Creed
Ryan Cooglar (Creed) and F. Gary Gray (Compton) are worthy directors
Compton could've gotten a nod for best pic.

If the film and acting are good a nomination it deserves.

Any chance of Ride Along as best movie in their books?

I don't usually watch the Oscars (although I'm always front row center for the Turner Classic Movies month-long film marathon preceding the awards) I will watch because I want to see Leonardo DiCaprio win an Oscar. If he can't win the Oscar after sleeping in a bear carcass I have lost faith in humanity.

And people are acting surprised by the all-white noms. I literally am not. When the Oscars were conceived, Hollywood was all-white. The first ceremony was held in 1927. IT took to 1939 for Hattie McDaniel to win for "Gone with the Wind" and even then, her character was a "loyal" slave to a white mistress. And the rest of the winners have been decades apart...but people want to squawk about it now?

I could care less about a little gold naked man on a pedestal. There's too many wars in the world, too many hungry children and people trying to eke out a living to worry about rich people crying over a little trophy. I'm more worried about North Korea dropping a nuclear bomb on me than whether or not "Straight Out of Compton" was snubbed.

I know my opinion is probably not shared, but what else is new?

Comedian Chris Rock is facing calls to withdraw from his role as host of this year's Academy Awards ceremony, as the row over the lack of representation among the nominees intensifies. "Please do not do the Oscars awards," wrote rapper 50 Cent on Instagram. Fast & Furious 7 star Tyrese Gibson has also called on Rock to step down. The actor said there was "no joke that can crack" that would make up for the Academy's failure to nominate a single non-white acting nominee.

It would be stupid for Chris to pull out.. he could draw attention to it (albeit uncomfortably) in his monologue but he's signed a contract. He would lose money... and probably be subject to a fine if he did.

Actor Mark Ruffalo, Oscar-nominated for his role in Spotlight, has suggested the growing disquiet over the lack of diversity among the nominees in the main award categories has led him to question whether he should attend the event.

He pointed the finger at "white privilege racism" in the industry as a whole.

"I'm weighing it," he told BBC Breakfast.

Dustin Hoffman has entered the Oscars diversity debate, saying he believes it is down to "subliminal racism".

For the second year running, no black or minority ethnic actors have been nominated in the four Oscars acting categories.

Hoffman - who was in the UK to present a special award to Billy Connolly at the National TV Awards - told the BBC the lack of recognition for black actors was part of a wider problem in the US.

The Men in Black star said it would be "awkward" to attend in the light of the row about the lack of representation among this year's acting nominees.

Musician and producer Quincy Jones has joined the host of voices speaking out about the lack of diversity at this year's Oscars.

The seven-time Oscar nominee said he had been invited to present at this year's Academy Award ceremony, but would only do so on the condition that he could publicly address the issue at the event.

"I'm going to ask to let me speak for five minutes on the lack of diversity. If not, I'm not going to ," he said on Wednesday.

"There are two ways to do it. You can boycott or you can fix it," said the 82-year-old, who was given the Academy's Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in 1995.

"I've been involved with Academy longer than I care to remember," Jones told the Hollywood Reporter.

"I was the first black board member. I hate 'first black,' because that means 'only.'"

Two-time Oscar nominee Viola Davis has added her voice to the ongoing row over diversity at the Academy Awards. "It's not the Oscars," she said, "the Oscars are a symptom of a much greater issue and that's the issue of the Hollywood movie-making system." She argued there should be more films with roles for actors of Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds. "The opportunity does not match the talent. There needs to be more opportunity. You have to invest in it."

The Big Short, a satirical comedy about the US financial crisis, has won top prize at the Producers Guild Awards. The win will boost its Oscar chances, as the Producers Guild of America (PGA) has predicted the winner of the best picture Oscar for the past eight years. Some bookmakers have already made Adam McKay's film favourite to be named best picture at next month's Academy Awards. Inside Out and Amy picked up the PGA's prizes for best animated film and best documentary.

Clint Eastwood is the latest Hollywood star to be drawn into the row over the lack of non-white Oscar nominees this year.

Stars including Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith are boycotting the ceremony.

But Eastwood was not entirely sympathetic, telling TMZ:

"I don't know anything about it.

"All I know is that there are thousands of people in the Academy and a lot of them, the majority of them haven't won Oscars, so a lot of people are crying I guess."

Eastwood won two Oscars for Unforgiven in 1993 and two more for Million Dollar Baby in 2005.

With the ceremony just over a month away on 28 February, this topic is very likely to be a focus at the big event. Watch this space - we'll be doing full live coverage on the night.
