yeah, those aren’t visual effects. That’d be set design (or possibly prop design I guess). But honestly, I think Ex-Machina really deserved the award, considering how convincing that robot chick looks throughout the entire film. Not to mention that it wasn’t exactly a big studio that made the film. you really gotta give those guys some credit.

It totally got shafted out of the "Best Visual Effects" award though. The sheer fact that they actually built all of those contraptions and then actually blew them up deserved some recognition. Then again, maybe it doesn’t actually qualify as special effects when they basically just did everything for real and filmed it.

You know, I have to be honest here. I enjoyed Mad Max: Fury Road. I was thoroughly entertained by it. But I honestly don’t think it was really an Oscar worthy film.

Costume, sound, makeup – these all sounds like ’fair enough’ wins for the film to me – it did put a lot of art and effort into how it looked and sounded.

But equally by that logic Bear Grylls is the most Oscar-worthy man on screens today.

It’s just so stupid and ironic that after decades years of acting and some really great performances he gets the best actor award for a film with barely any actual acting in it. Pretty much everyone I know can drag themselves through a snowdrift whiling looking downright miserable, because like you said – he’s not actually acting.

Also, as a film student, I feel obligated to point out that the award wasn’t for best picture, but best actor. The quality of the film has no effect on the award, as it’s all about how well DiCaprio did, despite film quality. And the majority of that film was as good as it could get… Because for the most part; he wasn’t acting. Through the majority of the film, he was actually crawling through the snow, and pulling himself from shallow graves, and eating real raw liver (or was it a diffirent organ?)… Of his own volition!

Despite how engaging the film was, you really have to admit:
The man has balls.
And that’s what the award’s all about.
