  • Django Unchained End of Story

    The fact that Argo beat Django for best film is all the proof you need. Anyone with half a brain and any semblance of taste would say Django is one of the best written, shot, and performed movie in recent memory. And Dicaprio's performance was amazing. It's all about money. They lobby just like politicians.

  • Yes, it is obvious and the choices make no sense.

    Actually, I can remember the exact moment I stopped buying the dream of the little golden statuette. It was the year a sitcom actress walked off with an Oscar for a cameo as Queen Elizabeth I. Best known until then for the cloyingly sweet suburban comedies A Fine Romance and As Time Goes By, I’m sure I wasn’t the only one scratching their head, trying to work out the Academy’s rationale in awarding the 1998 Oscar for Best Supporting Actress to Judi Dench for an EIGHT- MINUTE turn as the Virgin Queen, in Shakespeare in Love.

  • Mad Max was definitely bribing

    They won stuff for best costume, editing, and all that stuff, but seriously, how do harnesses and ropes beat the new stormtrooper armor? Or Kylo Ren's helmet and cloak? What about every other character from Star Wars? My arguement, Star Wars was obliterated by an obvious rigged vote. Also, best editing? No way should Mad Max have won that! Also, you know it was rigged when Leo actually won an Oscar.

  • Brilliant films where everyone thought hands down they would win but didn't because their the underdog, no coincidence.

    In 2007, everyone thought the best animated feature will go to cars hands down. The only other contestants were Happy Feet and Monster house which was no where no where near the standards of cars. But guess what happened, Happy feet somehow won. This even made the headlines of news channels because they thought happy feet was the impossible. However, Happy Feet couldn't retain the Golden Globe and Annie award as that went to cars.

  • So rigged... Stupid

    So many great movies/actors haven't been recognized. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

  • Obviously they are

    Robin williams jokingly said they were, also the revenant was actually not a very good movie. I think everyone can agree with that. I could go through all the years and analyze each move doing a comparison and so forth but I'm not. DONT waste your time on these things...

  • Mad Max Fury Road

    In the recent Oscars, Mad Max: Fury Road seemed to take the most Oscars. In some categories, such as editing, Star Wars: The Force Awakens was nominated, but Mad Max won it. If you watched the segment of the average black citizen, all the movies that were up for best film were never heard off. All it literally was Mad Max taking at least 6 Oscars home.

  • No, they are not rigged.

    I don't think that anyone with a straight face could say that the Oscars are rigged. Actors and films are nominated and chosen by a select few group of individuals, but that does not mean that they are not genuine in their choices. To think otherwise is quite foolish, that's for sure.

  • If you have studied the art of film/directing/writing and acting you would know that the Oscars usually get it right!!!!

    The biggest example would be the year "Crash" won best picture in 2005 over the very popular, political favorite "Brokeback Mountain"...Yes BBM deserved the awards it did win, but the only reason people(in Hollywood and liberal media) thought BBM should have one was because of two main reasons.
    1. Its about Gay's in love(which liberals highly support gay marriage)
    2. It was released during the "Oscar Season"
    Crash was not nominated for a single golden globe that year and it won best picture..So the fact that the Oscars made a HUGE surprise shows that it is not rigged or even political.

  • I would say that they are rigged per se

    No, I do not believe they are rigged. For the most part the Oscar awards are not rigged, but the obvious selections are just that obvious. There really no surprises on who will most like receive the award. I think that is why people may come to believe that the Oscar awards are rigged.

  • Voting body are professionals

    Yes the films nominated are probably more on the dramatic side of filmmaking and yes probably do not stand out as much at the box office as say '50 Shades" or "transformers" however the films are excellence in film making. Stand out achievements in story telling. The winners are awarded because their peers think they have reached excellence in their category for that year. Approx 6000 vote and they are film professionals.

  • Not rigged for sure

    Rigged is someone paying the organisers to give them the award and that doesn't happpens at the oscars... But yes, a lot of publicity campaigns, emotional campaigns and political campaigns go into it... Specially in the acting, directing and picture catagory... Less deserving people win as a career tribute and dramas which are difficult to act in get preferred over si-fi, fantasy and comedies because most voters are actors and choose movies which have good performances. The technical categories mostly get it right. They always try and award novelty... Hence gravity and pi win over all similar looking destruction and superhero films... But the voters ultimately choose the films they like. No matter how good the campaign for a film is, you won't vote for it unless you like it... People may disagree with their choices as we all have different tastes but that doesn't means they are rigged...

  • No, But It's Still A Popularity Contest

    Voting members of the academy cast their ballots online, and they have to follow a strict set of rules. The sheer number of voters in the academy make it hard to engineer votes. However, the process is far from perfect. The winners are still going to be the most popular films.

  • They Are Not Rigged

    The Oscars are not rigged. There is a lot of politics and other things that go into picking the winners but it is far from rigged. The Oscars is actually one of the few award shows where I do not know who is going to win in a category before it is announced.
