      The role didn’t deserve an Oscar.

      Dear BN, I’m pleading with you to keep the FREE ESE story as the headliner.
      with the Oscar related news pumping in, people might not pay so much attention to it.
      for all we know, some commenter here might be able to help .

    I am so happy for Leo!! You would think it is my boyfriend that won.
    On a serious note, I learnt from Leo to always be the best that you can be regardless of the awards or recognition that you do not get for your hardwork. Leo still kept his A-game on year in, year out. I’m just inspired really.

    • Missappleberry

      February 29, 2016 at 8:19 am

      I think he was always motivated to be d best because he loved his job. You can’t be motivated to be the best despite no win all these years if you truly are not in love with your job. Really happy for him though. Well deserved!

    Spotlight wins Best Picture? Pathetic.
    6 for Mad Max, well deserved.

    Meanwhile, Emmanuel Lubezki wins his THIRD Oscar in a row. Wow.
    And for what is the 3rd or 4th year running, a non-white person wins the Best Director award. 2nd consecutive time for Innaritu, too. Yeah right, Oscars’ so white indeed.

    Im not a movie analyst o but he didn’t get for wolf of wall street and Titanic but lupita got for being really dark skinned and natural. Awards are nothing what matters is the word on the street.

    February 29, 2016 at 9:07 am

    Congrats to him..this role wasnt really oscar worthy tho.And revenant was one boring ass movie.

    • jhennique

      February 29, 2016 at 10:46 am

      lol! i agree. Couldnt ustand the hype. I couldnt finish the movie.

    • Jade

      February 29, 2016 at 3:34 pm

      I think, it’s just his time to win an oscar. These oscars winners win for their least movies. I think, people just want to acknowledge their talent and work.

    This year I was rooting for Kate Winslet and Writings on The Wall (Sam Smith), I only had one win but a well deserved one. Alicia Vikander did well in Danish Girl, nonetheless.
    Best Picture spotlight ?? The Oscars can like to switch it up on us like its nothing, I would’ve sworn The Revenant had it in the bag.
    P.S Who else was wondering how Eddie Redmayne would have presented the awards to himself if he won?

    • bruno

      February 29, 2016 at 10:10 am

      eddy redmayne won last year for best actor in a leading role so he was asked to come back this year and present for best actress in a leading role. that’s how they do it. so how will he present the award to him self?

    • Noname

      February 29, 2016 at 10:33 am

      Have you ever watched the Oscars? I doubt it oh. Best Actor 2015 presents to Best Actress 2016.

    • BlueEyed

      February 29, 2016 at 11:29 am

      Yes I watch the Oscars. It was an oversight, forgot it went the other way.

  16. bruno

    February 29, 2016 at 10:23 am

    brooklyn didnt win anything. thats a beautiful movie. mad max gave me a headache, so much action my head was about to pop. Bridge of spies was boring as hell. steven Spielberg what the hell. was a snooze fest of a movie.

    spotlight was a bit boring and too safe. I wanted them to blast the Catholic Church thoroughly for coving up pedophile rev. fathers. the movie was too damn safe. its like they didnt want to offend catholics but we all know the truth about most catholic priests. stop molesting children pls. catholic bishops stop coving up for priests who molest kids. its terrible. parents pls watch over ur kids. dont trust anybody whether its a priest or a house help etc always monitor ur kids and give them attention and love cause it is kids that dont receive love and attention from their parents that are easy targets for pedophile rev. fathers.

    sam smith congrats, representing the gays all around the world. he looked so slim and handsome on the red carpet. his career isnt up to 5 years and he has already won several grammys and an oscar. congrats sam. we love u.

    Well deserved Leo!.. I loved the Revenant , watched it at the cinema where the guy I saw it with was constantly tryna fill me up?, at some point I gave him a smack and said.” behave! Leo is on!” ??

  18. aurora

    February 29, 2016 at 3:24 pm

    this is how to be consistent and hardworking not giving in to cries of woes and rants and laments. everyone could see he deserved an oscar all these years, yet Leo never cried or complained about it, if he were black, it would have become a race things -with black people holding placards and what nots. people, let your excellence speak for you. and one day in the same place and stage you have been rejected, you will be celebrated. do not be like olamide in a drunken rant or like other blacks, using oppression as an excuse for mediocrity. well done Leo. the lesson here for me is keep going, stop complaining, keep going.

    • good for you leo

      March 1, 2016 at 10:53 am

      totally agree with you – i am certain if leo was a black man you would have heard the noise from all over that the reason he had not won until now is because he was black.. to be honest where i am from most people don’t care about your colour but i do understand racism exist but on the same note some are quick to use the race card – i dive for cover when they do that without looking at facts.

    I loved this particular Academy award show nevertheless. I though Mad Max deserved all its wins! Congrats Leo, I was dead chuffed for you and grinning ear to ear. You were very graceful all through the drought and made an excellent and moving thank you speech. Again beautiful thank you speech especially @ your mum at Bafta’s! I send you jare!

    March 2, 2016 at 12:16 am

    Screamed when Leo finally won an Oscar, my mum was like kilodeee. now all those Internet meme and 9gag punts about him never winning an oscar can finally be put to death…
