I thought the same about Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs.

The first bad nomination I thought of was A Few Good Men, a nothing film built around the Colonel's outburst in court.

Some from 2000 & later: Silver Linings Playbook, Inception, The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, The Departed, Finding Neverland, Mystic River, Master and Commander, Gangs of New York, Gladiator, Chocolat. Wouldn't say any were really poor films, but none really rose above mediocre, got the sense with (eg) Mystic River that it was a cynical factory-made-for-the-Oscars film.

I enjoyed Gangs of New York..but I like the rest of your choices..........

Certainly snobbery involved in Oscar nominations....If Streep starred in a porn film she'd be up for one.

My biggest bug-bear is when subtitled films get bags of Oscars.....How can you tell If someone is a good actor when you are looking at the subtitles and can't tell how he is pronouncing his lines...

No idea what I would have had in their places, just named films I thought were underserving of plaudits.

I thought Tom Hanks was good in Forrest Gump.

I can't believe Titanic won the outrageous amount of awards that it did. Same with Lord of The Rings (or should be Bored of The Rings).

On more recent events, how Hugh Jackman didn't win for Les Mis was astonishing.

Because he is a monumental tw*t who wears sunglasses at night. And inside. And he swears rather loudly into his mobile phone.

Laugh Man, the Academy can be quite bitter then if they use that in their judging.....

Daniel Day-Lewis mustn't wear sunglasses at night then???

I think it could well be me that is bitter, not the Academy! He is richer, more talented, better looking and in better shape than me.

But, O'Hare airport in 2010. There he was, doing all those things I accused him of. Horrible man.

I really should let it go.

I genuinely don't get that?

I admit then when I saw your anti-Jackman rant that I was instantly put in mind of Dr Cox too. He's from Scrubs, and he hates Hugh Jackman. He's also a brilliant physician. And not real. So I doubt you are him.

I just saw the clip. Very good and did make me laugh.

It's a true story though. It was just that 0.01% of a chance that it wasn't Hugh Jackman that stopped me from smashing his face in.

I could have if I had wanted to. Honestly.

You best hope he doesn't have his fighting robot from Real Steel with him if you ever cross paths again.

I heard him on the radio before though, and he sounded a charming man. I think it was him. It might have been Guy Pierce.

You're just doing this to wind me up, aren't you?

It must have been Guy Pearce. Who, by the way, is a far more accomplished actor than Jackman, better looking, in better shape and also rescues beached whales for Greenpeace in his spare time.

I think it was Guy Pearce (thank you for the spelling) you know. Either way I have the illusion that Jackman is a great guy from somewhere. It must be propaganda.

I know plenty of guys that have done a fair bit with whales in their time.
