    A race so competitive that unexpectedly became predictable very quickly when Winslet was snubbed for Revolutionary Road and placed in lead for The Reader. An excellent decision IMO. Who were your favorites that year? Did you think Winslet deserved it? What do you think would have happened if Winslet did get double-nominated that year? Who do you think came in second? Why do you think Hawkins and Scott-Thomas were snubbed?

    If not Winslet then Melissa Leo should have won.

    Leo and Ollie were the best in my opinion.

    Good competitive list that year. Once Winslet was nominated in Lead and The Reader was nominated in other major categories, I knew Winslet would eventually win. Out of the nominees, I preferred Winslet to the rest of the nominees, although was slightly disappointed Cate Blanchett was not nominated for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (she would have been my choice). Out of the nominees, however, I would have ranked them:

    Winslet
    Leo
    Streep
    Hathaway
    Jolie

    Hathaway would be my choice for her exceptional work in “Rachel Getting Married.” Winslet winning for “The Reader” is wretched in every respect for one of her worst and most disgusting performances.

    If not Winslet it’s Streep. A SAG and a Critic’s choice is already enough for her to win.

    My ranking.
    Hands Down, Streep is my first that confronting scene is the best. Then Leo for Frozen River, Hathaway for my 3rd, Winslet for 4th and Jolie 5th.

    Hathaway
    Leo
    Winslet
    Streep
    Jolie

    Sally Hawkins would’ve been my choice had she been nominated (over Streep. I’ll let Jolie slide). Is this the I Loved You So Long year too?

    I’m not trolling, I’m asking a question, why do you think it is disgusting? Don’t be rude.

    There is an entire Internet of criticism on how “The Reader” appallingly conflates the sensitive issues of ephebophilia, illiteracy, and Nazism for a convenient and simplistic narrative. It’s not difficult to Google that. Winslet’s performance was at the center of the controversy, and shit like this shouldn’t win Oscars. It was also a topic of great debate on Goldderby way back when.
