    @bawnian-dexeus I don't disagree, I just feel as though they were completely the same, with no variances whatsoever save for the fact that one was good and one was bad.

    reply

    • bawnian-dexeus • 2 years ago

      @thedude-abides I also believe his character this time was more humor driven. Landa had some humor, but that was less of what you would call a definition of humor of a man who can do whatever he wants because he's basically Hitler's right hand man in a way, than Shultz did, like handing the slave a shotgun without thinking twice if he made a mistake or not.

      Hope I didn't loose you

      reply

      • thedude-abides • 2 years ago

        @bawnian-dexeus Oh, no doubt about it; it was him without the Nazi uniform, for sure. Shultz was a character Waltz could've really taken in a thousand directions, and instead, he chose to take it in the exact same direction as he did Landa, only as a protagonist. Very disappointed in that regard.

          @thedude-abides I liked Waltz performance, but deeply, I felt it was him without the Nazi costume. Doubt he'll get another award for years to come, because 2 in a row means locked. Hoffman stole the scene in the hotel with the christian gentleman. DiCaprio could have been a contender and given Waltz a run for him money and really some competition between Hoffman

            @corey Agreed. The Jaws gag was epic

            reply

            • thedude-abides • 2 years ago

              @narrator I agree; Hoffman definitely should've won. It's just sad when mere mortals such as ourselves can come up with a more deserving list of nominees and winners in just about every category.

              reply

              • narrator • 2 years ago

                @thedude-abides That's not a bad hypothesis, and one I'm likely to agree with. We've seen the Academy pull similar stunts before. However, it just doesn't make sense when you look at the list of Supporting Actor nominees this year. DiCaprio underwent a more extreme transformation than all of them and, in my opinion, acted better than all the nominees sans Phillip Seymour Hoffman (who should have won). The snubbing was just unnecessary and making up for it next year will seem equally unjust unless he turns in a hell of a performance for Wolf of Wall Street, which I'm sure he will. Idk, Academy politics confuse me. :P

                reply

                • thedude-abides • 2 years ago

                  @narrator I know it's still ridiculously early, but I would bet the house he gets nominated for The Wolf of Wall Street and/or Great Gatsby. Much like Argo, he'll be the one getting all the love next year for having been snubbed in 2013.

                  reply

                  • narrator • 2 years ago

                    Agreed, @ChiRep-1, @basquat, and @renodc. Judging by your comments and practically everyone I've talked to that has seen the film, it seems like a common complaint going around is the Academy's snubbing of DiCaprio yet again. While he gets snubbed far too often to really be surprised, I'm sure a lot of us thought that the Academy might have thrown him a bone this time. Shame that wasn't the case.

                    reply

                    • renodc • 2 years ago

                      @basquat Well said. DiCaprio and Jackson's performances in Django took intensity and villainy to a new level. They were so good it was disturbing.

                      reply

                      • basquat • 2 years ago

                        @thedude-abides I agree. But you could have probably given an award to anyone from django but the truth is, the one you really remember is DiCaprio. And i'm not a big fan of his but he and Sammy mofo performances are the one that stand out the most.

                          @justatadmatt Did I say I hadn't seen it? No I didn't. Regardless I wasn't saying her performance in that movie was particularly "bad", but questioning what makes it so special. Everyone's raving about "how good" she was, much like everyone raves about "how great" Breaking Bad apparently is.

                          In both cases the things in question have been talked up SO MUCH they've become over-hyped to me. @ROFLitschristian and I had talked about this on a different BB thread on MW a couple week ago in fact.

                              @justatadmatt Oh no. Lol. When I said, "It's like I said," it was more of a reiteration, not a "Did you not just read what I said?" :P My mistake.

                                Could've picked out better picks for some of them, but not bad overall.

                                    @ROFLitschristian i completely agree. sorry if what i said came off wrong...you said you hadn't seen the other nominees so I was just explaining why I thought Lawrence had won.

                                      @justatadmatt It's like I said, the movie didn't really pick up for me until her character came on. To me, that's how I know she was giving as much as she could give.

                                        Nobody could've predicted Christoph Waltz winning. He didn't even give the best performance in Django, let alone over the people he was nominated with.

                                          @narrator I couldn't agree more with your last sentence. Chastain and Boal should've won, for sure.
