Let's Talk: Did Melissa Leo Ruin Her Oscar Chances?

Although Melissa Leo's Ads have generated a lot of comments from bloggers, I really wonder if Academy voters are really influenced by such nonsense. Should an Academy voter cast a ballot against an actor/actress because of his/her race? Religion? Gender? Sexual orientation? Political affiliations? Age? Self promoting ads? What is the difference? The Academy Awards were created and exist to recognize and reward achievment. Melissa Leo gave, in my humble opinion, the "Best Performance By An Actress in a Supporrting Role" for 2010. If an Academy voter disagrees, vote for the nominee of your choice. Vote on the merits. Do not vote on the basis of the ads.
