Wouldn't it be cool to win #4 in 2014 and #5 in 2015!!
Yes, best original song and best director!
Who the hell is this "M"? I'm M!
new in town r1?
How dare you, I know all about Hollywood. Harvey Weinstein is a good friend of mine and I have many celebrity fans like Glenn Close. And I sat next to Meryl Strep at the Golden Globes. Oh wait...
No, you're right. I never got the first 3 Oscars, just Razzies and Golden Globes. There can only be one M on a gay messageboard and that will be you, since everyone hates me. :(
All I know is that I had to blow a lot of cock and smear even more vaseline on the camera to play Grace Kelly. Naomi and Meryl are "friends" but they cannot compete with my millions. Wish me luck, bitches!
Don't count your Oscars before they're hatched, Meryl dear. I've got a juicy one coming up, I'm under-Oscared, and I'm going blind.
That trumps anything you've got going on.
Even Meryl must admit that most of her nominations were not worthy.
Oscar is already competitive with Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts, Cameron Diaz, and Jennifer Lawrence wanting best actress spots. Do you think Harvey will test screen Grace of Monaco? My prediction is that no one will see that film until it opens.
Most of M's were deserved. I would have nominated Reese for Election over Music of the Heart, but otherwise, she is pretty solid.
Isn't M getting nominated on average twice a year a sad indictment of the actress race or does it mean there just isn't anyone as good as her?
The reason she gets in all the time is cause there isn't anything better, they wouldn't keep nominating her for nothing. And there's a shortage of good female roles overall.
The actor race seems tougher to get into a lot of the time, you rarely get anyone under 30 in that.
There are maybe some actresses similar to M in what they can do like Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton, but they choose odder non Oscar friendly projects a lot of the time. There's few male actors in this rarefied league as well.
As for this year's race, I just hope there's some new faces in it and it's not all The Usual Suspects.
I think the final 5 will always be a mix. It always seems predestined but then some of the movies flop or the actors don't deliver. Last year had the oldest and the youngest nominee. With Streep, she does great work and chooses great roles, but she is getting older and I think her nomination rate will slow down.
I am shocked that people are already campaigning for Oscars a year in advance. HW and DO are really competitive. Same with Nicole Kidman, she wants another Oscar like a gay guy wants a fat cock.

I'm due for another, aren't I?
There are plenty of actresses over 50 who are just as good as Meryl, or at least have the potential to be. Unfortunately, these actresses don't have the box office clout that Meryl has, and they frequently get passed over by the bigger studios who only want box office hits. Quality roles for women over 50 are rarely being produced by the big studios as it is, so even Dame Meryl sometimes takes a big role in a weak script. The rest of the good actresses of a certain age end up in independent features that may never get wide distribution, or they have to produce the films themselves, or they do theatre or television.
R15 was for R13. I see a big turnover happening now. Emma Stone, Jennifer Lawrence, Kristen Stewart, etc. have a lot of clout. Hollywood likes young women. Charlize is on top for her age group. Gwyneth gave up. Nicole wants a comeback, but I dunno. The plastic surgery turned off people. Maybe she can pull of Grace Kelly if it's really well done and stylized, but it could be horrible.
Emma Stone and ESPECIALLY Kristen Stewart, aren't getting near an Oscar. After this year, it will be a miracle if KStew is ever invited back.
I watched an Oscar red carpet recap and K Stew looked jacked on coke. Mess. Studios will give her a few shots though because of Twilight. Emma Stone is in the Julia Roberts or Sandra Bullock category. She has potential for a lot of box office success. I do think the jury is still out on Jennifer Lawrence. People are expecting miracles from her now.
Grace of Monaco rough cut screened for TWC execs, but I have not heard anyone say it's a work of art. They are releasing it late in the year in "limited" release, to nab Nicole Kidman an Oscar nod.
Erm, every two years on average I meant to say R12. Her first nod was like 35 years ago, divide by 2.
The longest gap was the first half of the 90s but she's had loads of back to back noms which are rare and really difficult to get.
And word of mouth on the AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY rough cut is not only another Best Actress for M, but a Best Picture, too...
If August: Osage County is best picture material, it helps all of the actors involved tremendously to get nominations. The Nicole and Naomi competing princess films seem a little Lifetime drama to me. Oprah will also try to butt in with The Butler.
And DDL gets to pass the 3 (lead) win baton.

Why is it that not one date, with either 2014 or 2015, was mentioned by OP?
And why is it not one of the previous responses (to mine) had asked that question of the OP?
Oscar set March 2014, and February 2015, as next broadcast dates.
How come I'm never mentioned
I'm an alcoholic and I fuck underage girls. Just give me an Oscar already.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
