21 Times The Oscars Screwed Up Since Jennifer Lawrence Was Born

Good job celebrating the perfection that is JLAW. Oh, and for giving 3-6 Mafia and Oscar because that was a revelation. But, honestly, you guys have some explaining to do.

3. Chloe Sevigny loses to Angelina Morticia Jolie.

CS gave the performance of a life time in 'Boys Don't Cry' (alongside Swank's equally brilliant acting) while AJ, in 'Girl, Interrupted' died her hair blonde and yelled for 2 hours. And then she showed up in a Halloween costume and made out with her brother.

4. Cate Blanchett loses to Jennifer Hudson.

NBD. I mean, it's not like Blanchett was COMPLETE PERFECTION in 'Notes on a Scandal' while an American Idol reject sang a few songs in 'Dreamgirls.' Anyone's acting looks good next to Beyonce's.

5. Hugh Jackman loses to Daniel Day-Lewis.

Look, I was skeptical at first, too. But this performance is everything.

8. 'Crash' beats 'Brokeback Mountain.'

This oddly racist look at racism randomly beat the glorious and profound 'Brokeback Mountain.'

9. Sandra Bullock wins for 'The Blind Side.'

Now don't get me wrong. Getting drunk on white wine and watching this with your mom is a FANTASTIC idea. But it's certainly not Oscar material.

11. Snubbing Jim Carrey for 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.'

Kate Winslet was rightfully nominated but poor JC got the cold shoulder.

12. Nominating 'The Help' or 'Precious' for anything ever.

These movies were alarmingly racist and poorly made.

13. No nominations for James McAvoy.

He deserved nominations for both 'Atonement' and 'The Last King of Scotland.' He also got totally screwed when they billed Forest Whitaker as the 'star' when he's barely in the movie.

14. 'The Descendants' losing, like, everything to 'The Artist.'

Don't get me wrong, 'The Artist' was lovely. But this movie is genuinely brilliant and special.

18. The entire year of 2001 (excluding 'In The Bedroom.'

'LOTR.' 'A Beautiful Mind.' 'Training Day.' 'Monster's Ball.' This year was a full blown catastrophe. And they snubbed the shit out of the wonderful 'In The Bedroom.'

19. Just the fact that 'Chicago' happened.

When I think singing and dancing, the first people that come to mind are Richard Gere, Renee Zellweger, and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

21. Polanski gets an Oscar for 'The Pianist.'

Obviously the man is a great talent. But it's maybeeeee in poor taste to give an Oscar to a known rapist who only gets to keep making movies because France won't extradite him.
