I'm not sure what this reply means in context to what I posted, I'm merely saying that the performance often has nothing to do with winning, it's how much your studio presses palms and kisses ass. The year Kate Winslet won was a a prime example of this, the Weinsteins spent more than the other nominees combined to make sure she won. Kelly's point was that Oscar's aren't won by acting, they are like a political campaign, the issues matter less than who can sell themselves to voters.
