This year has some outstanding ladies doing some incredible performances. Much like the suporting men, I am not sure who's going to pull this one out. My personal favorite is either Jennifer Jason Leigh in The Hateful Eight (which should have been nominated for best picture, imho) and Kate Winslet in Steve Jobs.

Who do you want to win?
i voted for steve jobs. wp wouldnt have much competition with out the iphone
get-r-done payback is a mother
I voted for Jennifer Jason Leigh since it was the only movie I saw with the nominees so far. She was really good in the movie.
White girls rule!

Seriously? We're going to play the race game? Look up the stats on Oscar winners. It's white biased, but still very diverse. Don't hijack my fucking thread with immature uneducated media-fused beliefs.

You are right, that's pretty diverse...

Please educate me as to which of the nominees you've listed in your various polls would be checking anything other than the "White/Caucasian" box on a survey of their ethnicity.

I was simply making a little joke, but since it must be "media-fused", I'll just leave this here so you can be educated on the reference:

Futiles reference to only 31 diverse trophy have been awarded. I ask, in what categories does this encompass? And that's limited to winners, not all nominees. Look at every single nominee in all catsgories, and it's much more diverse. Is there a patterned problem recently? Yes and no. The film's nominated the last two years have been generally weak when compared to previous nominees. That statement reflects across the industry as a whole. What films in the last two years should have been nominated that weren't? Actors and actresses? Go to any year in Oscar history and a plethora of arguments can be made regarding my last statement. The last two years really didn't put out a lot of diverse performances that may be worthy of award, both film and role.

It's also easy to point out that there is a lare portion of the Hollywood business that is white, from director down. Statistics would support that a predominantly white sample would produce a predominantly white elite (for lack of better term). So again, the liberal media that has propagandised this controversy are only serving to fuel a fire they created by lack of participants. It's basic math. You want more diversity in the Oscars? Produce more diverse films that are incredible. 12 Years was amazing. It won. Duh. What was incredible this past year? Not Madea's annual, that's for sure.

Hotdog. Sorry I jumped at your comment so assertively. Sometimes I fail at reading sarcasm well, even when it's virtually obvious. I was in a mood I suppose.
