Academy Awards logic
The real crime was the loss of the Deathly Hallows on the other technical awards they were up for. You can argue make up, score and even acting. But to do what they did visually… Well It was quite stunning and they should have gotten something from that alone
Couldn’t agree more
This graphic is a bit of a joke. Ralph Finnes Voldemort “make up” was done mostly digitally.
They were still robbed, but this was the silliest example you could have used.
There’s much more that HP could have won (and been nominated) for, but I’ve seen this image pop up on my dash more than any other complaints, and considering it’s popularity…it’s the weakest one, for the reasons listed above. Digital effects are a completely different category from make-up, which is predominately based on practical…well…make-up.
The point is valid, but if this example is the one most oft-used, then it doesn’t look good. The Academy isn’t going to pay any attention to complaints if it just comes off as angry, bitter fans. Make an educated argument. Throwing out stuff like this just makes the pretentious old guys who run things feel even more justified, in the off-chance that it gets around.
