    I’d say in 1999 she was probably second but I’m not sure about 2004.

    I guess Imelda Staunton is the second to Swank in 2004. She won BAFTA. I guess the order is Swank, Staunton, Winslet, Benning, Moreno.
    In 1999, she is definitely second.

    Second in 1999, no way in hell she was top 3 in 2004 for that dreadful movie.

    I am fairly certain she was second in 1999.

    I am also fairly certain she was not #2 for “Being Julia” because nobody gives a damn about that movie. Not even its cast or crew. It is as if it never happened.

    She must have been second in 2000, no way someone else would have surpassed her.

    Not too sure about 2005 (ceremony) neither… on the one hand she took the Comedy Globe and some voters might have felt the need to make up for her loss in “American Beauty” (which prevented another real sweep after “The Silence of the Lambs”). On the other hand, Staunton’s performance and movie were so much more touching. Rooting for Annette this year though…

    Of course Staunton was second in 2004. It’s a shame she lost, even though I feel like I’m one of the few people that like Swank’s 2nd win just fine. Her entire career surely doesn’t merit 2 Best Actress Oscars but at the same time she won for damn amazing performances.

    It will be odd to see Benning lose twice to Swank and then maybe twice to Portman if she’s in for this year.

    She was definitely second for American Beauty. No one really cared about Being Julia but I think she was like third.

    in 2004 I think Stauton and Winslet were in better position.

    She was a definite 2nd for American Beauty, but for Being Julia she was more likely 4th.

    She was definitely second in 1999. McTeer most likely was third that year. Benning was either third or fourth for Being Julia- From what I’ve heard, Winslet had very little buzz in 2004 so Benning may have gained more votes given the Globe win and the Benning vs Swank buzz. But Staunton was second in 2004.

    Bening was runnerup in 1999/2000, but in 2004 Staunton was the runnerup not her.

    She was definitely second in 2000 but there’s no way she was runner-up in 2005. I want to believe that Academy was smart enough to make Imelda Staunton second and losing only by couple of votes. How that performance lost is still beyond me. That’s why I don’t expect Natalie to win this year. The best performances rarely win. And when you give one of the best performances of decade you never win. For me Staunton was the best female leading performance of 00s (alongside Hawkins in HGL, Huppert in The Pianist and such). And Portman is the best female leading performance of 10s (alongside Rampling in 45 Years, Riva in Amour and such). Bening was probably dead last in 2005. Yup, even Catalina Sandino Moreno probably had more votes than her (and deservedly so!).

    Yeah, Bening was for sure a close runner-up in 1999 and probably third or fourth in 2004. By Oscar night, she had close to no buzz at all for Being Julia.
