Mad Max Won All The Oscars, Except The Ones It Really Deserved

There was a brief moment during the Oscars where it looked like Mad Max: Fury Road might be on the way to getting the recognition it deserved as a truly groundbreaking, visually stunning film. Spoiler alert: It didn’t.

Here's Every Single Oscar Award Winner For Visual Effects 

Video: The 2016 Oscars have some of the staunchest VFX competition in the award show’s history. (Either Star Wars or Mad Max better win, I swear to God.) But the entire 87-year history of silver screen special effects is equally stunning.

Citizenfour Awarded Oscar For Best Documentary In 2014

CITIZENFOUR, Laura Poitras’ riveting documentary about Edward Snowden’s efforts to shed light on gross surveillance abuses by the United States government and its partners, just won the 2014 Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

Oscar-Winning Movies Perfectly Recreated With Just Stock Footage

Video: Dissolve is back at it again with one of my favourite recurring series: recreating famous movie scenes with just stock footage. This time they focus on Academy Award winning movies and make you guess the film using hints such as ‘theme park fail’ and ‘midlife strife with rose petals’. It’s pretty uncanny how close they can get.

If you didn’t have time to go see this year’s Academy Award nominees for best picture you should watch this neat mashup by University of Nevada student Dustin Martin.

This Is How We Watch Movies Now: 95% Of Oscars Films Already Online

36 films have been nominated for this year’s Academy Awards. And, as of writing, just two of those haven’t been leaked in DVD quality online, most whilst they’re still in theatres. Whether you think piracy is a libertarian dream or criminal theft, it’s clear that this is how things work now.

The Lego Movie Oscars Snub Is Garbage

This morning, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences — an institution that in March of 1995 declared Forrest Gump to be a superior film to Pulp Fiction, Shawshank Redemption and Quiz Show (Quiz Show!) — has decided that The Lego Movie, which was animated for the most part by Australian studio Animal Logic, is not one of the five best animated movies of last year. This is not a snub. This is a brickin’ joke.

The Factories That Churn Out America's Most Iconic Trophies

There’s a little trophy shop called Aardvark Laser Engraving down the street from our office in Oakland. It’s small but bustling, and its windows are stuffed to the brim with awards made of all kinds of materials and in any shape you can imagine: chalices, orbs, golfers, gavels, apples and plaques. Plenty of plaques. They are engraved to award the Club DJ of the Year, the newest member of a local Freemason branch, one mysterious trophy just says “Rifle Expert”, and there are plenty of heartfelt engravings to spouses, family members and retiring co-workers.

Supercut Of Iconic Movies' Final Scenes Is The Ultimate Spoiler

If you’re a true film buff, you can watch this montage without fear, because of course you’ve seen every Oscar winner for Best Picture. But even if you haven’t seen them all, it’s still worth watching as a beautiful ode to cinema.
