    Both performances of Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine & Julianne Moore in Still Alice were separated by a year.  Note parallelism of their film title & Alec Baldwin.  

    What if they are pitted against each other, either 2013 or 2014, Who Should & Will WIN ???

    I think we need to wait until we actually see Still Alice to form an opinion. I’m pretty sure most people, myself included, are predicting Moore based solely on reviews, and not because we’ve actually seen it.

    It’s an interesting point, but I think Blanchett had the stronger reviews for her performance and her film that by the time anyone else was seen the industry was pretty set on giving it to her, whereas Julianne benefits most this year from filling what was a large void before her film was picked up. The Cannes win also helps her narrative, though.

    Given that very few people have even seen the film, let alone posters on this forum, it is a bit early for such a question. But just based on Blanchett’s performance and film alone, she would have still been a juggernaut. The only way she would have lost that Oscar would have been if it was discovered that she and Woody were running a child prositution ring on the side. There was no stopping her, and the ladies keeping the rest of the category warm were just pleased to be on the same ballot with such a performance.

    Blanchett had won an Oscar and it didn’t even matter!

     Agreed. And even THAT kind of press may not have stopped her.

    Cate would’ve still won probably. The movie was a hit and it was one of the most unanimously beloved performances to ever contend for an Oscar. It’s even more impressive given the fact that it was in the Best Actress category which brings out the worse in online punditry.

    Julianne Moore’s path to the Oscar will most certainly be a bit more labored. I mean Cate barely campaigned at all, she just showed up to collect the hardware.

    Without seeing  SILL ALICE  as of yet, i cant really
    say…What i can say is that BLANCHETT IN BLUE JASMINE
     is better than at least 75 -80 other best actress wins…I feel
    her performance is already iconic and having said that, I suppose
    she couldve beat just about anybody…

    Yeah I think it really is one of my favorite performance to ever win this category, and I’ve seen most of them.

    Both are Sony Pictures Classics, but that aside, Blanchett is just too good to deny in her performance

    As great as Julianne Moore certainly was, very few performances are comparable to the one Cate Blanchett delivered in Blue Jasmine. Epic acting showdown combined with major class act and a vivid spark that not every actor is able to ignite.

    I have seen both, but it could be dependent on how much the overdue factor will have played with Moore in this case.

    Blanchett was leading from the beginning of the summer, while Moore gathered steam in the autumn, so maybe Blanchett will have taken it due to the momentum she would have built over the longer time period compared to Moore.

    Saw Still Alice way back in December. Blanchett all the way.
