    On paper, this looks like it was one of the most wide-opened races, with no clear winner until the Oscar envelope was finally opened.

    Amy Ryan won most of the critic awards, including LA, NY, and Critics Choice
    Cate Blanchett won the Golden Globe
    Ruby Dee won the SAG
    Tilda Swinton won BAFTA, and then eventually Oscar.

    So, did the right person win? Who should’ve won? Any nominee you would have replaced? What the hell happened that year?

    I’m fine with Swinton clenching the victory since the Academy ignores her due to her avant-garde choices.

    2. Saoirse Ronan
    3. Cate Blanchett
    4. Amy Ryan
    5. Ruby Dee

    I would nominate Vanessa Redgrave over Dee. As far as extended cameos go, she was far more effective as older Briony.

    No one comes even close to her that year. Probably the most subtle the most understated performance I’ve ever seen. She was perfect.

    I did like the Tilda Swinton win, but Amy Ryan was just as good.

    Didn’t Tilda give her Oscar to her agent when accepting her award? KInda cool, I guess.

    Amy Ryan, hands down. She tore my heart in two in Gone Baby Gone. With that being said, Tilda Swinton isn’t a bad winner. She was damn good in Michael Clayton.

    I would have voted for Saoirse Ronan for Atonement but I thought Tilda Swinton was a superb choice (: All 5 performances were very good that year.

    I loved Julie Depardieu in both A Secret and The Witnesses and Ludivine Sagnier in A Secret and Emmanuelle Beart in The Witnesses (o.k., I just love French cinema!!!!).

    Lmao. She even deserved a nomination over Ruby Dee, to be honest.

    I forgot this was also the year when “Juno” came out with amazing, career-best performance from Jennifer Garner.
