I've had alot of fun reading the responses to Secret Admirer's thread of top ten teen movies....so here is my idea to spark discussion.

After watching Vicky Christina Barcelona the other night I thought to myself "it's an ok movie but I really don't see how Penelope Cruz won the best supporting Oscar?"

It got me thinking.....who really chooses the Oscar picks? What determines a nominee? I never watched the Oscars in the 80s. I was a child and really to me they seemed like more "adult" movies and I wasn't interested.It's interesting now to see what the Oscar buzz was back then......Does anyone have any good 80s memories of watching the Oscars?


So here's my game for you.

This is your own Oscar ballot for the year 1986.
I will give you the nominees
You pick your winner!

as an extra.....you can also choose from the Razzie winner of that year. [Razz]

and feel free to add any conversation you feel is necessary!! (you don't have to fill out a ballot, all conversation is encouraged)

Ugh, those movies look so serious. I have not seen many of them. However, I did like Mona Lisa, and I see that on the list. Under The Cherry Moon is awesome if you're a Prince fan, which I am, but I can understand why that got the Razzie. In 1986, my favorite film vote would have been cast for Transformers: The Movie.

Honestly there are about a hundred films I would put over most of those nominees. It might not be fair to judge a movie before you've seen it, but I'm a good judge of what kind of movie interests me. 1986 was a great year with plenty of my favorite films. Big Trouble In Little China, Ferris, Rad, Pretty In Pink, Cobra, Blue Velvet, Soul Man, just to name a few.

Ugh is right! haha I have only seen 2 of the Best Picture Nominees....in all the years of 80s movies watching i've done and only 2?? These are supposed to be the "best" movies right? That is why I wonder what are the qualifications?

Platoon won in 1986

Here's the top grossing films of 1986

Some other great films from 1986....Labyrinth, Lucas, Manhunter,Iron Eagle,Short Circuit, Stand By Me, The Wraith, Youngblood

I found it interesting Kathleen Turner was up for Peggy Sue Got Married, Also Lynch for Blue Velvet? Has he been nominated alot over the years or ignored?

Best Picture winners in the 80s
1980-Ordinary People
1981-Chariots of Fire
1982-Gandhi
1983-Terms of Endearment
1984-Amadeus
1985-Out of Africa
1986-Platoon
1987-The Last Emperor
1988-Rain Man
1989-Driving Miss Daisy

After seeing this list I actually do remember all the buzz about Driving Miss Daisy and I may have watched it that year.

All those pictures I found were actually from the 1986 ceremonies... [Smile]

aliens is one of my favorite movies of all time. and for the longest time, i had never known it was nominated for best picture. i think that's awesome, it got nominated.

i can't say much about any of these movies. i haven't seen the majority of them. and if i have, it was later on in life. i was too young to want to see most of them.

but aliens was the first purchased vhs tape i ever owned. [Smile]

my husband is an out of this world prince fan. he made me sit and watch under the cherry moon with him. i loved it. [Smile]

Woo-hoo! Muffy wants to play!

Best Movie

Platoon [blah blah blah "war is hell"]
Children of a Lesser God [blah blah blah "being deaf is hell"]
Hannah and Her Sisters
The Mission [[blah blah blah "the uncivilised are hell"]

Paul Newman-Color of Money

Haven't seen 'Round Midnight' but I'll throw it out to Newman - he deserves one.

Best Actress

Sigourney Weaver-Aliens
Sissy Spacek-Crimes of the Heart

REALLY TOUGH that one. Wanted Sigourney to win, but I've got to say that since being deaf is hell Marlee did a grand job.

Oliver Stone-Platoon

I'll give it to Lynch, but if Stone won I wouldn't call a foul.

Love Dianne Weist, but she grated on me in the first half of 'Hannah'. It's a tie between Piper and Mary. Plus I can't remember 'Crimes' very well.

You have a problem with that Mr. Lawrence?

Yeah, but how many people still watch any of those movies, hmm?

Yeah... but that had more to do with all the canoodling that went on between the two of you than the movie itself - amirite? I'm right aren't I? You know I'm right.

Awesome Logan! I'd leave it to you to have seen more movies on the list then anyone [Big Grin]

So I bought Crimes of the Heart on vhs on one of my hauls lately.....I knew nothing of it.....so i'll add that to the watch list soon.

I love Woody Allen movies and i've tried to watch Hannah and Her Sisters in the last year and I couldn't sit down and watch it....but Annie Hall was that way for me at first. Now Manhattan I love!!!

quote:
Now how many people still watch these movies?
That is sarcasm right? Back to School,Ruthless People,Ferris and Top Gun I try to make annual movies [Smile]

"Canoodling" that's too cute! I'm sure they did! You all are the ones that have turned me onto Prince movies so I will add Under the Cherry Moon to my watch list....done!

Man, I can't stand Mastrantonio in The Color of Money.

I like the movie but to me her character does not even need to be in it.

The movie would have had the same impact without Vincent having a girl friend.

I seriously cannot stand it when she says, "On the snap Vincent."

I am extremely surprised that she was nominated.

I'm not a Mastrantonio fan per say, but she was good in COM. Both Carmen and Fast Eddie were trying to play the talented but dim Vincent. Both con artists (he a hustler, she a thief) recognize that the other knows Vince is a cocky but gullible guy and that sets the tone from there on in.

Yeah, I'm familiar with the film but still believe that she has no real significance in the film.

I think Carmen is a flimsy character. The movie would not be that much different if her character was not in it or there was a different character.

Minnesota Fats could have been the other character. Now that would have been good.
