NYT: Oscar-Winning Lessons in History and Hard Sell

Quote:
LOS ANGELES — A few months into awards season, at a party celebrating another movie, a veteran actor-writer-director-producer, who takes his Academy Awards duties very seriously, whispered to me that he was sure “Lincoln” would win big on Oscar night. “Because it’s Lincoln,” he said. “It’s like not voting for George Washington. And you really feel like you get to know Lincoln. We can’t not vote for our favorite president.”

Lincoln didn't win because Lincoln wasn't about Hollywood.

I love DDL. I think he's a tremendously talented actor and loved him in There will be blood and Gangs of new york, but I felt Joaquin Phoenix deserved the best actor for The Master. He was phenomenal in it.

edit: I also heard there's a lot of politics in The academy awards and JQ made it known he didn't care for the Awards.

I thought Hugh Jackman's performance was more challenging than DDL's.
