    If this were only April first, then this news wouldn't infuriate me so. What a freakin' joke.

    So is it me, or do different branches of the Academy have to step in shit EVERY year? Usually it's the music branch, but this new debacle takes the freakin' cake.

    Imagine you're a hard-working make-up artist on Star Trek: Nemesis and you find out you're ineligible for a nomination because, what.... Paramount didn't send out enough SCREENERS???? You're in the f***ing ACADEMY! GO SEE THE GODDAM MOVIES!

    And LOTR got overlooked because it's part of a trilogy?? I didn't just watch three hours of all-new footage with several brand new characters? Dourif's makeup wasn't good enough??? Hill's????

    Uch, I digress. I'm gettin' riled.

    Thats ridiculous, LOTR had the best make-up of the year, I dont think anyone would doubt that. BTW - Nemesis had horrible makeup, just horrible. Looked like a Halloween mask. Oh, and why didnt they nominate Blade 2. That would have been my 2nd choice behind LOTR.

    My heart goes out to Michael Westmore for being overlooked for Nemesis. What a shame, and what a cruel act of negligence on the part of Paramount and AMPAS.

    Have to agree, the Reman makeup, while of sound concept was horribly executed

    The Academy does something retarded. News at 11.

    Not a surprise in the least. They had to screw something up.

    This is the most ridiculous thing, and quite telling about how freaking moronic the Oscars are as a whole:

    Are academy Members allowed to write in a choice when they actually vote, if they'd like to honor an unnominated film they feel was overlooked? if so what are the chances of lots of academy members writing in The hours or lord of the Rings?

    To be fair, Chicago’s nonfantasy scenes did attempt to be realistic. Moulin Rouge threw reality off the observation deck of the Sears Tower.

    Every thread I start ends up as a 'let's bash Moulin Rouge' thread! [​IMG]

    I woulda thought that Nicole Kidman's prosthetic schnoz in The Hours would've gotten a nomination. People can't seem to shut up about that one.

    The Academy must be stopped! These new rules are just plain ridiculous! And what ever happened to the nomination for Planet of the Apes last year? It sure as hell had better and more extensive makeup than the mustache appliances in Moulin Rogue. It's all ridiculous.

    Next on Fox...When the Academy Attacks!

    See voting gone rampant!
    See illogical decision making on the edge!
    See ferocious snubbing of worthy filmmakers!

    The thing about The Hours was that Nicole's fake nose was only one of three pretty damn impressive makeup jobs in that film - the other two being Ed Harris's AIDS makeup, and the old age makeup on
    Julianne Moore
    , which was better IMO than the Oscar-nominated old age makeup in A Beautiful Mind last year. It's a shame a technicality (digital touchup of the nose) means all this great work doesn't even have a chance to be recognized.

    I'll just say that I can understand Frida getting a nom. I thought the make-up rendering was outstanding.
