I can appreciate the fact that a nomination and win significantly increases the value of a particular talent, and I am sure that people like Gary Oldman like to be nominated. With that said, I still feel the “personal taste” of the Academy is clearly quite rudimentary. And BTW I don't particularly rate Streep. I can always see her ticking away; she's always on the periphery of being the character. Overacts everything.
I can understand someone's disdain for awards, but for every George Clooney, there's a Daniel Day-Lewis. There are politics, but sometimes somebody actually deserves to win. Those are the moments I watch for.
