  1. Right around when the Makeup & Hairstyling nominees were announced, I knew I needed to start writing these down because I have some thoughts.

    L – No Darkman in Stunts
    L – No The Witches and The Hunt for Red October in Visual Effects
    L – Goodfellas in Sound (Where…)
    L – Dick Tracy in Makeup (This is probably a hot take but this is definitely a case of most makeup vs. best makeup
    W – No Total Recall in Makeup
    W – The Witches in Makeup
    L – No Darkman in Makeup
    L – Home Alone in Editing
    W – Awakenings in Adapted Screenplay
    W – Carrie Fisher for Postcards from the Edge in Adapted Screenplay
    L – No Metropolitan or Alice in Original Screenplay
    W – Julie Kavner in Supporting Actress (someone mentioned Alice Drummond and I voted for Ruth Nelson as the film’s representation?)
    L – Daniel Stern OVER Roberts Blossom for Home Alone
    W – Mia Farrow for Alice
    L – Shirley MacLaine in LEAD? Knocking out Meryl from her nom in the process?
    W – Patrick Swayze in Ghost
    L – NO ROBIN WILLIAMS OR ROBERT DE NIRO FOR AWAKENINGS ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
    W – Penny Marshall for Awakenings!
    L – No Awakenings in Best Picture

  2. Right around when the Makeup & Hairstyling nominees were announced, I knew I needed to start writing these down because there was a lot interesting going on here.

    L – No Darkman in Stunts
    L – No The Witches and The Hunt for Red October in Visual Effects
    L – Goodfellas in Sound (Where…)
    L – Dick Tracy in Makeup (This is probably a hot take but this is definitely a case of most
    vs. best makeup to me. None of it looks especially convincing and its also incredibly
    unpleasant to look at.)
    W – No Total Recall in Makeup (I’m so happy this didn’t happen because the makeup is AWFUL,
    and I’m guessing I’m not alone here because I expected this to be an easy box to check off for
    most people.)
    W – The Witches in Makeup (Wasn’t 100% sure this was going to happen, so this was a nice relief.)
    L – No Darkman in Makeup
    L – Home Alone in Editing
    W – Awakenings in Adapted Screenplay (After missing Score, Editing, and Cast I thought
    for sure no one had seen it so this is where I started getting really excited.)
    W – Postcards from the Edge in Adapted Screenplay (Carrie Fisher!)
    L – No Metropolitan or Alice in Original Screenplay
    W – Julie Kavner for Awakenings (Karen mentioned beforehand that she wanted to see Alice
    Drummond nominated, and I voted for Ruth Nelson, so along with what little attention the film
    had received at this point this was a huge surprise to see Kavner as the film’s representation.
    Still, I really like this choice.)
    L – Daniel Stern OVER Roberts Blossom for Home Alone (I don’t dislike the Stern nomination itself,
    but Blossom is just so iconic in this that it stings he was overlooked among his own cast.)
    W – Mia Farrow for Alice
    L – Shirley MacLaine in LEAD? (I’m going to need this one explained to me like I’m 4, because as
    far as I’m concerned, the film isn’t even close to being her story. Unless I’m mistaken, all of her
    scenes are shared with Meryl, and Meryl gets A TON of scenes without MacLaine. Plus,
    knocking out Meryl from her own category in the process makes this one feel particularly
    egregious, although I guess I was in the minority.)
    W – Patrick Swayze for Ghost
    L – NO ROBIN WILLIAMS OR ROBERT DE NIRO FOR AWAKENINGS ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
    W – Penny Marshall for Awakenings! (Best nomination of the day. I figured even if people
    did like Awakenings enough to put it in Picture again, that Marshall would get overlooked just
    like she did at the Oscars. Well done ACCA.)
    L – No Awakenings in Best Picture (Not well done ACCA.)

  3. Amount of films directed by women recognized by ACCA – 1
    Amount of films directed by women recognized by Karen’s top 10 – 1

    Not trying to get Karen, but it just goes to show that people rightfully vote for their favorites in a given year. The moment you start voting for the sake of diversity you are being dishonest with yourself, and also committing tokenism.

  4. John, you are working with an incomplete premise. The only female-directed film I was advocating for (loudly) for Best Picture was Awakenings. There were many other categories with other films directed by women that were very deserving. Just because they didn’t all make it into my Top 10 doesn’t mean I wouldn’t have picked them in other categories. In fact, I made it very clear I would have.
