    She was so much better in “Transamerica” than Reese Witherspoon in “Walk the Line”. The pretty factor won over the performance.

    My rank:
    1. Felicity Huffman
    2. Judi Dench
    3. Charlize Theron
    4. Keira Knightley
    5. Reese Witherspoon

    Huffman was complex, strong and heartbreaking! And her career desperetly needed the Oscar to work later on. Now she’s nowhere near worthy projects. She’s over fifty and probably has no chance to prove her talent in Oscar-caiber movies.

    At least she won an Emmy for her brilliant work in “Despera Housewives”.

    Maybe “American Crime”…but I’m not sure. And it’s also on TV.

    My ranking that year:

    1. Felicity Huffman
    2. Reese Witherspoon
    3. Keira Knightley
    4. Charlize Theron
    5. Judi Dench

    Joan Allen for The Upside Of Anger should have been on that list.

    She was the best by far! Zhang Ziyi should have replaced Witherspoon because witherspoon was supporting……and not even that great in the film.

    I personally preferred Witherspoon. She was my winner that year too, so I’ve been perfectly fine with her win. *shrug*

    Could not agree with you more about Felicity Huffman. She was magnificent in Transamerica and she absolutely deserved to win that Oscar over Reese Witherspoon, who I like as an actress but thought she was too pretty to play June Carter and that her performance was more of a charicature than a fully developed character. But I’m glad Huffman at least got a Golden Globe win for the role. 

    Joan Allen for The Upside Of Anger should have been on that list.

    Very good point on Allen too Carlo!

    I’d take Witherspoon’s understated turn as June Carter over any of the nominees any day. There’s a reason why she pretty much swept most of the critics awards. I feel that the sentiment against her win is extremely unfair, when they should be frustrated at the year that lacked good harvest.

    Huffman was just the best in that category and she would make a more memorable winner than Witherspoon imo. Raw, complex, sweet and heart-shattering. Just outstanding work. Reese was solid but not worthy of an Oscar for that performance.

    Felicity would be my winner and Keira would be my runner-up.

    Huffman was phenomenal but Reese deserved her win.

    Huffman was fantastic and probably should have won, given what I’ve seen  of Reese ‘s performance recently.. Really need to see all of them again though, especially Knightley and Dench.

    Keira Knightley was excellent as well. But Reese made sense as a winner.

    Bingo!

    Felicity Huffman was my choice to win the Oscar this year too. She was stellar in “Transamerica.” I also loved Keira Knightley in “Pride & Prejudice,” the snubbed Joan Allen in “The Upside of Anger,” and the much-maligned Judi Dench in “Mrs. Henderson Presents” (delightful film, even if seemingly easy work for Dench; Bob Hoskins should have been nodded in supporting actor that year; I would have included him over Clooney and/or Giamatti).

    Huffman turned in a good performance in a BAD film.  I remember Bree being unlikable at times but I what I remember most about this race was I did not feel strongly about any of the performances.
