      I'm not shocked about Spotlight. I would like to say I'm shocked about Leo, but I'm not. Too many times he was *that close* and didn't win. The Academy decided to finally throw him a bone.
      Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

        Revenant is a ways down the queue. Just started reading the book, and I always like to unfairly compare movies to books. My wife hates that. Especially when we're watching a movie and I say 'Well, in the book, ...'

          The movie just **** all over the book.

            Good; we can finally stop listening to the fangirls b*tching how it's so "unfair" that Leo hasn't won an Oscar.

              Which version? American or Swedish? I thought the Swedish version was truer to the book (and full disclosure: they actually did the trilogy).

                BTW, none of Leo's Oscar losses are really all that bad.

                Supporting Actor for What's Eating Gilbert Grape? Lost to Tommy Lee Jones for The Fugitive.

                Best Actor for The Aviator, Blood Diamond and Wolf of Wall Street? Jaimie Foxx in Ray, Forest Whitaker for Last King of Scotland and Matthew McCaughnanotspellingitright for Dallas Buyers Club, respectively. None of those are really losses one could complain about. Really you have more of a case for him being snubbed by not being nominated for some of his other Scorsese movies or Catch Me If You Can (granted, I have yet to double check who won those years) than you do saying he should've won one before now.
                If you want to be a BADGER, just come along with me

                BRING BACK PAT RICHTER!!!


                At his graduation ceremony from the U of Minnesota, my cousin got a keychain. When asked what UW gave her for graduation, my sister said, "A degree from a University that matters."

                  Haven't seen Last King, but love Forest, so take your word for that. It's just odd that Leo hasn't won before. I mean...helluva actor.....

                    It's just bad timing. Cripes Amy Adams had been nominated just as many times without a win before tonight. Glenn Close still wins with six nominations without a win.

                    Also, Leo now has a better winning percentage than Peter O'Toole. 1 win with 8 nominations.

                      I love Amy Adams, but she isn't half the actor that Leo is. Dang.

                        My favorite moment of the awards was Ennio Morricone FINALLY winning. Yeah, I know he got an honorary trophy a while back, but he finally just did it. So awesome. I was screaming about how sweet it was and everyone was looking at me like I'm nuts. I brought up all the movies he's done this for, and they were also blown away that he hadn't won before. Congratulations on finally truly getting the big one, sir.

                          There was a crappy rom-com with Jack Black and Kate Winslet (side story with Jude Law and Cameron Diaz) where Jack Black was a composer for the movies. He pays tribute to Morricone during the movie -- talks about how he's absolutely one of the best. I'd never heard of him before (but when I looked him up, I'd heard tons of his stuff).

                            Where does one go to listen to fangirls? I don't think Ive heard them before so thankfully I must be avoiding your sources.

                            As for TGWTDT not only was the US version closer to the book but (a huge rarity) it was the better film. too bad they're stopping at one.

                                Didn't see the American version. The Swedish version was absolute ****. It completely changed the ending, which was the most important part of the book. They also changed a number of incredibly important details. Things that altered fundamental details and relationships.
