1. Nominees should not be under age 16

They shouldn't be competing with adults, and I think it stunts their artistic growth.

Give Quvenzhané Wallis a special achievement award -- isn't there one named after Judy Garland?

6. Let me disagree or agree

 

gonna take both sides of this issue

most actors/actresses get one chance at an academy award and never get another
So in her case I would say she should and it would be wonderful if she won

And in the other extreme, when there is a very elderly nominee, like Ms. Riva, but more as an example, Peter O'toole, in Venus, he should have won four times earlier, but never won, holding I think the record for most nominations without winning.
For Mr. O'Toole, I would have given him the award basically for his entire scope of roles for Venus, and I don't think Forest Whitaker should have won that year.

In this case, I would have said Mr. Whitaker could have another go at it but not take away Peter's award he so desperately wanted to win and deserved to win for Laurence of Arabia.

Ms. Riva was wonderful, in the heartbreaking, basically impossible to watch AMOUR, and she has made some great films in 50 years, but in this one, deserves for this role.

The two most likely won't win as Jennifer Lawrence probably, or Jessica Chastain should win
Chastain is another who if she doesn't win this year, may be one of those who keeps being nominated and everyone will think she won, but never wins.

Only one that doesn't deserve this year to be in it is Naomi Watts. IMHO

7. Sorry that Maggie Smith was left out.

She was a delight, as always, in "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel".

8. I was sorry that didn't get more attention.

There were Golden Globe nominations for the film (as best comedy or musical, I think), though I can't recall just now if it won anything.

In any event, the movie played all last summer at local arts theater, and though frankly I think people always need to watch something life-affirming, it was particularly true during this past year, what with the record heat and derecho and power failures.

Oh, and Maggie Smith did win a Golden Globe for Downton Abbey, I think.

And she's got a new movie out -- Quartet.

And now back to our regularly scheduled thread.

9. She did indeed win a best supporting actress for Downton Abbey.

Best Exotic Marigold Hotel received critical kudos here, but only had a short run.

Wouldn't it be nice if the awards went to quality instead of quantiyt (as in dollars spent)?
