  1. I think the Oscars are a heavily biased, non representative selection of the best from film in a year. There's a lot of movies that should be on that list. For instance, for the special effects category, you should replace Fury Road with a film like Antman or even Age of Ultron that actually uses a lot of special effects and does it well. I'm not sure how some of those films or actors ended up above, but it's a travesty to.be so biased and narrow minded when choosing who is a potential recipient of an Oscar.

  2. I think special effects should be just as much as using them right, not just making it look impressive. Mad Max uses both Digital and practical effects to its advantage, and does it seamlessly. But at the same time I feel Ex Machina should win, it used its effects in an abstract and beautiful way.

    Biased but nice lists. I just wish that the Oscars had a category for Best Stunt. The stunt people in the movie industry aren't given enough credit and recognition that they deserve.

    Really? Mad Max is nominated for Best Picture, but not Creed? Why would anyone ever consider a silly movie with a boring 2 hour car chase "Best Picture"? Is is the guy rubbing his nipples that the academy loved so much?

    That said, Stallone and Damon's nominations are well deserved. I'm rooting for them and Drew Goddard for The Martian screenplay.

    I have a feeling you didn't see Fury Road, and are a huge comic movie fan. I am one myself, have seen all three, and promise you FR deserves every single mom it got, especially special effects. The reason is FR used a lot of practical effects, making it seem cooler and more real compared the the fungasam of CGI that are marvel films, and I love marvel films
