      DeOscarize

             that crazy ballyhoo

                               DeOscarize

Where anyone who don’t deserve it just won’t preserve it, if they can’t shine in these times.

If you want to remove the “bad” part of coffee, you DeCaffeinate

If you want to remove the offending aroma from a room, you DeOdorize

And if you want to give the award issued by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to a more deserving recipient, you DeOscarize the current holder.

DeOscarize CHARLES COBURN – Best Actor 1939 – The More The Merrier

Charles Coburn gave his first film performance when he was 60 years of age. The Hollywood community was in awe. By the time he got his first nomination four years later he’d already given sterling supporting performances in Idiot’s Delight, Bachelor Mother, Stanley and Livingstone, Edison, the Man, The Lady Eve and, of course, his academy award nominated performance in The Devil and Miss Jones.

So he’s 64 by now and he’s given some great performances. 1942 goes by and now it’s 1943. Surely Coburn can’t last much longer. So when The More the Merrier comes into Hollywood’s view, this is the community’s chance to reward such a fine trooper. But wait. What about Claude Rains?

He’s given some great supporting and featured performances in films. Lest we forget The Invisible Man. What a voice! The Adventures of Robin Hood; find me a better villain

and didn’t Claude Rains give an amazing supporting performance in Mr. Smith goes to Washington?

That performance will last forever but shining just a little brighter and lasting just a little longer was the performance that Claude Raines gave in Casablanca. So I’m going to have to figuratively, push the DeOscarize button on Charles Coburn to give the Best Supporting Actor Award for 1943 to Claude Rains. Admittedly though, there were some other great performances that year. Unfortunately none of them were nominated. Check it out below.

Of course I can see where folks might think I’m wrong. I believe I made my case to DeOscarize Charles Coburn. Can you make the case to prevent it? Is there someone else you would DeOscarize Scofield for? Let’s discuss it. GO TO Leave a Reply.
