Not so good film aside, Saoirse Ronan‘s performance in “The Lovely Bones” is gold and one of my favorite performances by a younger actress, ever.
I do think she deserved an Oscar nomination for it: she has earned two of the big awards nominations, a BAFTA nomination and a BFCA nomination for Best Actress. What do you think, she was close for another Oscar nomination as Susie Salmon?
2010 Best Actress Countdown
BFCA: Sandra Bullock (won – tie); Meryl Streep (won – tie); Emily Blunt; Carey Mulligan; Saoirse Ronan; Gabourey Sidibe.
BAFTA: Carey Mulligan (won); Saoirse Ronan; Gabourey Sidibe; Meryl Streep; Audrey Tautou.
SAG: Sandra Bullock (won); Helen Mirren; Carey Mulligan; Gabourey Sidibe; Meryl Streep.
GG DRAMA: Sandra Bullock (The Blind Side – won); Emily Blunt; Helen Mirren; Carey Mulligan; Gabourey Sidibe.
GG COMEDY: Meryl Streep (Julie & Julia – won); Sandra Bullock (The Proposal); Marion Cotillard; Julia Roberts; Meryl Streep (It’s Complicated).
LAFCA: Yolande Moreau.
NYFCC: Meryl Streep.
NBR: Carey Mulligan.
NSFC: Yolande Moreau.
So I think we can pretty much say that all Bullock; Sidibe; Mulligan and Streep were lock for the nomination. But I think for the fifth spot, three women – Mirren; Blunt and Ronan – were fighting to make the cut.
I think Ronan was 6th, Blunt 7th.

I think with a globe nod she would have not only been nominated but ahead of Blunt, but she did not so I think she was 7th.December 11, 2015 at 8:57 am #202586
Ummm…no.December 11, 2015 at 7:11 pm #202587
7th, but a bit distant in 7th.
There were already 20somethings Sidibe and Mulligan in, and she was in her mid-teens. I think 20something Blunt in an Important Biopic and who had been buzzed without a nom previously for Prada was way more likely.December 11, 2015 at 7:40 pm #202588
Blunt was definitely ahead- Ronan would have been a highly surprising nominee had she been nominated. It was Blunt vs Mirren for that last slot for sure. Ronan must have been a very distant seventh.December 11, 2015 at 8:14 pm #202589
Oh please…Not even close.December 11, 2015 at 10:02 pm #202590
Oh please…Not even close.
So, then? Who was close?
She got a BAFTA and a CRITICS CHOICE nomination. Blunt got a GOLDEN GLOBE and a CRITICS CHOICE nomination. So based on the big awards she was either 6th or 7th, but as BAFTA voters are actually voting on the Oscars, unlike GG voters, I think she was 6th.
