Really? Melissa McCarthey for Best Supporting Actress

Sorry that was a lame movie that was a rip-off of the Hangover. Zach Galifianakis did that role way better and was way more deserving of an Oscar. That part McCarthy was nothing more than every single fat woman stereo type roled into one character.

There were much better actresses out there to be considered for Best Supporting Actress like that girl who played George Clooney's daughter in "The Descendants"

1. I half agree

I liked the movie and I thought she was funny but I can't believe she was nominated. I think her nomination is the result of her being the current "Hollywood Plus-sized Sweetheart".

In 5 years she will probably be in the same place as Camryn Manheim.

2. Hollywood loves a stereotype.

4. Better than the rest of the dreary crap that got nominated for an Oscar this year

This is one telecast I won't be watching
