    What roles do you guys thing Judi Dench should have won the Oscar for? Are there any roles you thought she should have been nominated for?

    Me personally I thought she should have been nominated last year for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and she should have won a while ago for Mrs. Brown.

    Her work in Notes on a Scandal is absolute perfection. I found Mirren and her biopic a snoozefest that year, and was rooting for a Dench upset all awards season.

    Nothing. For every time she’s been nominated, she’s never been the best of the five, IMO.

    Notes on a Scandal (an example of near-perfect film acting), over the wildly overrated mess of a performance that Helen Mirren gave in The Queen.

    Her performance in Notes on a Scandal was the greatest of that year by a huge margin.

    I have to agree she was stunning in that film!

    Despite having great affection for Cruz’s and Mirren’s nominated performances that year, Dench in ‘Notes’ was clearly the acting highlight of the year by male or female.

    Judi Dench was so stellar in “Notes on a Scandal.” I couldn’t get enough of her in it. I would have been happy with her winning lead actress there, but that line-up was so good, pretty much any win would have been deserving. I’m fine with all of Dench’s nominations (EXCEPT “Chocolat,” ugh), and I’ll always defend her win for “Shakespeare in Love.” She should have been nodded for “Skyfall” too, particularly over Jackie Weaver.

    I know everyone says her win for Shakespeare in Love was undeserved, but for me the Chocolat nomination was a total rubberstamp. Lena Olin’s performance was the best supporting performance in that film, but got predictably overshadowed by the older veteran.

    I have to disagree with the Chocolat nomination. I don’t know why she is so hated in that movie, I absolutely loved her in that role. She was scene-stealer. Before I got involved in tracking awards seasons in the blogosphere I was convinced this was a very liked role. I was shocked when I learned this was not the case.
