Why are you projecting Cooper's past work onto a film that has nothing to do with it?

You mean the one sentence out of all that? Well its because he sucks. and the oscars are a joke, and I'd like to perpetuate that as much as possible. Especially the oscars are a fucking joke part.

I singled out that part because it's a cheap shot and I'm sure you would afford the actors you like a hell of a lot more courtesy than that. He's done some weak films and mediocre acting, not going to deny that. But you could argue the same thing for any of the guys in this category (yes, even DDL), and I think it's bullshit to make an offhand comment like that and expect it to be accepted as a piece of thoughtful criticism. Frankly, he gave a great performance, and you trying to use him as a justification for your hyperbolic hate of a superfluous awards show is almost laughable.

No one is making you pay attention to the Oscars or post in this thread. Your tastes don't align with the Academy and that's fine. But no one really wants to hear you screaming from the rooftops about how above the whole thing you are. None of us are stupid for liking certain films, and the Oscars aren't a joke for awarding them.

I'm glad a movie like SLP got recognition at the Oscars. Glad to see it there rather than the same biopics, book adaptations, Academy-friendly directors and heavy-handed dramas.
You realize this is an adaptation and made by an "Academy-friendly director?"

I can assure you I have not attempted "a piece of thoughtful criticism" in this thread. I doesn't take much thought at this point to realize that Bradley Cooper is a mediocre actor at best and the academy awards is a favoritism-based hollywood circle jerk. You are far more worked up than I am over it.

The reason people get so worked up about the Oscars is because they are the biggest destructive force in cinema. They do it out of love for movies.

yeah, but when I saw it I would never have considered it'd be nominated for anything.

Crowe was better than Jackman in my opinion.
