Note to Samuel Jackson: people are telling you that Landau won it as a lifetime achievement award because you are a sore f'in loser and they are patronizing you to appease your enormous ego.
No, they are saying that because it happens all the time with the Oscars. Do you really think Scent of a Woman was Al Pacinos best acting job? The Departed was Scorsese's best moive? Come on, those were straight up, we fricked up, you guys should have won a long time ago, so here you go awards. And there are many other examples.
Personally I thinking great acting is over rated. Unless someone is really bad (Sophia Copolla GF III) or completely out of place (Keanu Reeves in Dracula) at a certain level its fine.
ETA: I just realized the 2 examples i gave were movies directed by FFC, which was purely by accident
