agreed with BrandySnap cause lets be honest

So it costs $12,000 just to make the statuettes and we wonder why there is so much money inequality in the world.

Sorry to go all serious but these awards shows are bullsh*t.

No one friggin cares what the critics think.
They only look for what's bad with a movie.

Cost to run a commercial during a broadcast of the Academy Awards. $1,500,000

Is this for a 30 sec. Geico commercial, or a 2 minute long Cialis commercial? They can't be the same.

Interesting that only 7 movies won best picture plus both the best actor and actress. I'm pretty sure Silence of the lambs got all 3 of those awards, does anyone know what the other 6 are?

@twenty12 Whilst I'd be pretty happy if D9 won, I'm going for Inglourious Basterds.

Everyone seems to think that Avatar is going to win Best Picture, even the'experts'.... However, think about it, whilst the masses liked it, Avatar is not hugely regarded among most circles. The Academy is made up of people from all different strands of the film industry, that includes Actors, Directors, Producers, and Scriptwriters. Avatar has not garnered a nom in either the Acting, or Writing departments, this puts it at a serious disadvantage. Avatar has also only won a single best picture, compared with the (last time I checked) 8 Best Picture awards that 'The Hurt Locker' has so far garnered. At the moment, it is a race between 'Avatar', 'The Hurt Locker', and 'Inglourious Basterds', among those, the latter is probably the only one with a 100% lock (Cristopher Waltz with Best Supporting Actor). Now, this by no means puts IB as the frontrunner (it is still THL for now) but it certainly gives more power to its campaign (And would be my personal pick for BP).

Actors are crap.

i looked up on wikipedia about the oscar streaker

"Robert Opel (23 October 1939 – 7 July 1979) was a photographer and art gallery owner most famous as the man who streaked during the 46th Academy Awards. He sneaked backstage posing as a journalist (he had worked as a photographer for the well-known LGBT publication The Advocate, shortly before) and ran naked past David Niven flashing a peace sign while Niven was introducing Elizabeth Taylor."

Gone With the Wind is longer than Return of the King? Geeze. I suppose that's the theatrical cut though.

the "oscar curse" seems lame. how many actors never win an academy award and yet still have a declining career? its seems like an unrelated stat, not to mention 21% is a very low number.

the only real curse is the 'Madden Curse'...

as for the awards, they're lame. Slumdog won last year (or 2 years ago) and it was one of the worst written movies I've seen, decent acting but poor writing. Avatar will be the same thing, overhyped but utter crap. not to mention UP will win some awards despite being one of, if not THE, worst movies pixar has ever made...

Wow! This graphic takes something that is completely trivial, irrelevant, and boring, and makes it even more trivial, irrelevant, and boring.

Quite an accomplishment there.

How can the average person win on oscar betting? isnt it true that in all betting the average winnings will be 0, since money comes from someone else?

or does it mean that if you win, the average amount gained is 50 dollars?

Tatantino makes awesome movies!
But he's pretty self centered. . .
