At least the comment section largely takes her to task, even if she has her lapdog Ryan come in to defend her.
i just finished boys don't cry for the first time
what a horrible movie , and Hilary was good no more no less
Give your oscar back bitch
Boys Don't Cry is a super film and Swank's win for it is one of the most deserved in the category's history (especially when you consider who came in second).
That being said, Sevigny's performance is always the first that comes to my mind when I think of that film. Stunning work.

Something was off about Boys Don't Cry for me... really good performance, though.
I turned in a deeply sourced column day after Oscars about Weinstein/Affleck awards rivalry/2013 shenanigans, but Variety editors killed it.
I don't really know the Oscar politics well enough, but is there any chance of an anti-Weinstein revolt at some point?
Except Spielberg, who loathes him.I can't imagine he doesn't have every person in Hollywood at his door.
What would an anti-Weinstein revolt even consist of?
Really, he's just like everyone else in Hollywood. Only louder. The only thing that truly sets him apart is that he is the best at running Oscar campaigns. But nobody should really care too much about that considering the #1 objective in Hollywood is making money. Yes, an Oscar win for certain parties can help box office prospects (like, The Hunger Games now has a bit of prestige with an Academy Award winner as the star), but it's only one of many ways to make money.
I'm sure no one hates him more than Spielberg and Dreamworks, though. Shakespeare in Love vs. Saving Private Ryan was brutal; the "Inside Oscar II" chapter about it is so entertaining.
I guess I'm imposing my own personality on it. I just feel like his control is so obvious that I'd want to go against it. I would think some voters don't want to feel like they're being told what to do (while still allowing themselves to be wined and dined of course).
