    I finally watched Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Gary Oldman was robbed because those fucks jerked each other off thinking that piece of shit silent movie was awesome.

    It is kind of baffling that Oldman has never won an Oscar.

    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
    Batman Begins
    The Dark Knight
    Leo The Professional
    Airforce One
    Dracula


    Edward Norton is another guy that is surprising.

    Primal Fear
    American History X
    Fight Club
    25th Hour
    Death to Smoochy
    Rounders

    Ed Norton needs to do more movies. He is one of the best of my lifetime. He is definitely oscar worthy imo.

    Has Leo ever won one? I don't think so. Hell, he might be the actor of our generation.

    DiCaprio was stiffed. Not counting actors.

    Thomas Newman
    Roger Deakins

    Two men who have more than earned their stripes. The oscars are, and always have been bullshit. Pure politics.

    Arnold.

    Dude's the greatest action hero of all time, he deserves an Oscar stating such.

    That was one of the biggest hose jobs ever. But I was expecting it. Rourke had pissed off some people and once you knew Sean Penn was playing a queer you knew he was a shoe in.

    The Oscars definitely seem to be all about politics and not the actual films. How long did it take before Martin Scorcese won an oscar ?

    You should add "True Romance" to Oldman's resume. I've never seen "Sid & Nancy" but he's supposed to be really good in that too.
