Why Jared Leto?  Because he's gay and dying (at least the character he plays is).  Going retard or catching a terminal illness always improves your award chances.  You just don't want to ever go full retard, ever however.

Yes. How dare people like someone submitter doesn't like. Its an atrocity.

I think Jeremy Renner should have gotten a nomination for his Camden mayor role. I usually find Renner annoying and stony-faced (which he thinks is how action heroes need to be), but I thought he was fantastic in American Hustle.

Yeah, three gay AIDS performance winners (would have been four if they could have somehow given both Douglas and Damon the same award). AIDS is the new retard which was the new AIDS. The circle of life.

But Matthew Mccaoug...Mcaugnaha.....Wooderson lost a lot of weight for that role. The voters love that shiat. They love it almost as much as they love AIDS and retardation. If the guys who played the hobbits in the original LOTR films had some vertebra removed for the role, that with the gay would have let them sweep the awards for that year.

Character who is a transgender gay with Aids, and you wonder how he won?

Only way to improve his odds were if he was a black man from Palestine.

Because, from everything I've heard, Leto and McConaghey absolutely killed it in Dallas Buyers Club.

And, in case you didn't know, roles that require actors to make a substantial physical transformation usually get the attention of awards voters. See DeNiro, Robert, Bale, Christian, Thereon, Charlize, Hanks, Tom, Foxx. Jamie, and Day-Lewis, Daniel.

Or it could be because they did the best acting in one of the finest films I have seen in years.

People biatching have not seen the film, hell I didn't even recognize him until a few scenes in and was shocked.

Leto did well but McConaughey's transformation from gay bashing to showing sympathy and realizing how wrong he was is perfect. Not over the top begging for forgiveness like most films go for, he just shows his change through his actions.

Yeah, that's true. At the end of the movie the character is someone you are rooting for, which is pretty far away from where things start out. To me, that's the sign of a great performance.

I though it was because of his Golden Globe speech. I guess he made a homohobic remark or something. I didn't watch so, I have no idea if it was blown up or not. Link to article

I don't see how anything he said was homophobic. From the article you posted:

.....tonight they were honored for their efforts at the Golden Globes - where both men managed to, purposely or not, insult the very communities they were representing on film.
Leto's speech managed to pat Leto on his own back while trivializing actual transgender people - he played a trans woman with AIDS, at the height of America's AIDS crisis. He began by mocking expectations about his anatomy. "I did not ever use any prosthetics in this film. That tiny little Brazilian bubble butt was all mine." This was all in good fun, but Leto's playing for laughs the process by which he prepared for the role of a person who felt uncomfortable in her body was not, really: "It was a very transformative role. I had to do a lot of things to prepare. One of the things I did was wax my entire body, including my eyebrows," Leto said to the audience's laughter.

It's an actor's job to prepare for a role in whatever way the script demands; it may have been difficult for Leto to wax his entire body, but it's sort of a weird punch line for a person whose entire role was about body discomfort and the painful modifications one must make to feel OK with oneself. Leto got money and at least one award for playing his part in "Dallas Buyers Club"; it's strange that he didn't take into account the notion that his struggle was not, in fact, the most important one involved in his role.
For those who think I'm reading too much into his speech at the Globes and his 'Fresh Air' interview in which he called his character "transgendered" and said the film had no political valence, I'd point to the fact that neither Leto nor his fellow winner Matthew McConaughey mentioned AIDS once in their respective speeches. These two men devoted months of their lives to a project specifically about the AIDS crisis, and then went off on tangents when accepting awards for their work about how goofy and weird it is to make your body like a transgender person's (Leto's speech) or about how your wife calls you "king" (McConaughey's).

So to summarize, Leto said "I did not ever use any prosthetics in this film. That tiny little Brazilian bubble butt was all mine....It was a very transformative role. I had to do a lot of things to prepare. One of the things I did was wax my entire body, including my eyebrows." Then he said his character was transgendered, and then he didn't mention aids and was light hearted when accepting the award? WTF is wrong with that in non-crazy people land? It's hard to believe other people besides the author would have a problem with this.

I spent this weekend 'binging' on some of the 'nom'd' movies:  Leto and McConaughey's performances deserve every award they can throw at them.

Leto:  It's very hard to take a character few can relate to, not make it 'camp', and have the audience feel something towards that character that's 'kindred' - Leto does that in spades.  (And, seriously - throwing Cooper and Hill's performances in the same league with Leto this year is a joke.)

McConaughey:  I would echo everything in the quoted comments about McConaughey's performance, while adding that he doesn't make Woodruff into a caricature of what people think a redneck homophobe would be.  Unless Dern edges him out, it's his to lose. (Sucks for Leo - he's fantastic again...but in a year where a few other performances are better:  Bale shouldn't be there, for what amounts to 2.5 hours of a DeNiro impression.  Leo's Quualude/Lamborghini scene alone is balls out fantastic:  It's Chaplin-level brilliant for physical comedy.)
