@higorm: it's just that out of all the nominees in the Supporting actor category, Rylance was imo the least deserving to win. I'm not saying that it was a bad performance, because it wasn't. It was a good performance just not an Oscar worthy one. Personally, I was rooting for Stallone or Hardy.

I'm super happy for Leo. He deserved it.

Spotlight was a great movie but Best Picture? Should have been Mad Max or Revenant.

And I just don't understand how can Rylance's performance of an emotionless Soviet spy that barely appeared on screen for more than 30 minutes in a 2 hour long movie could be considered an Oscar worthy performance.

I don't know how, but it's somehow the white man's fault.

@leo-343: Ignoring Forest Whitaker, Denzel Washington, Jamie Foxx, Sidney Poitier? Why? Don't make me laugh. That picture proves shit. If minorities can't make an interesting Oscar worthy movie performance in a movie that isn't about racism or slavery, that's their fault not the Academy's. Which is sad really. I'm all for diversity and all. But as I'm scrolling through the list of the Academy Award winners and nominees on Wikipedia, I couldn't think of any non white actor who deserved the Oscar more than the actual winner of that particular year. Did Idris Elba and Will Smith at least deserve a nomination this year? Definitely. But so did Johnny Depp, Charlize Theron, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg.

@mrtummytumms: using the lack of a nominations for Idris Elba as proof of the Academy's racism makes no sense

@jonny_anonymous: Creed and Beast of no Nation were great. Macbeth was ok. Still, there is zero reason to believe that they got snubbed because of racism.

@mrtummytumms: oh, look. Another one who didn't get the point of my original comment.
