BEST ANIMATED FEATURE

  • Jared

    Why did spotlight win best picture when it didn’t win anything else? Well at least mad max and love and mercy, the martian, and ex machina are getting nominations/wins

    • Vits/Vicente Torres

      I asked the same question when MAD MAX won the National Board of Review Award for Best Film. It lost in every other category.

      • voiceofreason

        See my comment to Jared. Additionally, sometimes the whole is greater than any one of it’s individual parts. It’s just the way it goes.

        • Vits/Vicente Torres

          I agree with that logic. In fact, I don’t mind it when a Best Picture winner isn’t the one that wins in most categories (for example 12 YEARS A SLAVE vs GRAVITY), but in not a single other category?

    • voiceofreason

      well, it’s not like they all sit in a room and say “let’s award this to this, and that means this needs to also win this.” they are all individual categories, nominated individually (hence the paul dano double-up) and then voted on individually by individuals. there’s always going to be things that end up not making sense to those that expect some kind of fluidity in the voting process and results. every year its the same comments and conversation.

  • clone

    Wait, am I reading this correct??? Paul Dano is nominated for best actor AND best supporting actor for the same performance in a movie???

    • Bradly Martin

      Yeah his mumble core performance is that amazing lol

      • clone

        But why did the SFCC nominate him TWICE in different categories for the same performance??? That doesn’t make any sense. At first I thought rotten tomatoes made an error but I browsed it up myself in SFCC official website and turns out they did nominate Paul Dano for both best actor and supporting actor for Love and Mercy. I mean, what??? It looks as if they can’t decide if Dano’s character is a lead or supporting in the movie so they just put his name in both categories.

  • SnidgetAsphodel

    Dano can act anything. Good to see him get recognized.

    • Bradly Martin

      Do you have anything you could suggest? Apparently I’m in the “Isn’t he that mumbly white guy that emo’s about his love life for 90 minutes then gets laid?” category.

      I though the same thing about Miles Tellar until I saw Whiplash so anything you really liked with him would be great.

      • ilkazapata

        Did you watch “Little Miss Sunshine”, or “There will be blood”, or “Being Flynn”?
