    So, indiferent from categories, what performances do you think were better than those that got nominated at this year’s Academy Awards? I’ve seen only a bunch of the twenty nominated performances, yet the number of non-nominated performances within the same movies of the nominees is pretty big:

    Mudbound:
    Jonathan Banks, Jason Mitchell and Rob Morgan > Mary J. Blige

    Lady Bird:
    Beanie Feldstein > Saoirse Ronan and Laurie Metcalf

    Get Out:
    Betty Gabriel, LilRel Howery > Daniel Kaluuya

    I, Tonya:
    Sebastian Stan and Paul Walter Hauser > Margot Robbie and Allison Janney

    And The Post, The Florida Project and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri got the right ones.

    OP asked for better performances irrespective of categories.

    I preferred Michael Shannon’s performance to that of Richard Jenkins and Octavia Spencer.

    Yes, yes, a thousand times yes!

    Also the entire cast but specifically Garret Hedlund and Jason Mitchell over Mary J Blige.

    Michael Stuhlbarg over Jenkins and Spencer.

    Michelle Williams over Christopher Plummer.

    Allison Williams over Daniel Kaluuya.

    Michael Shannon and Michael Stuhlbarg over Richard Jenkins and Octavia Spencer in The Shape of Water is an easy one. I think that’s the only example from the movies I’ve seen.

    I’m not sure I’d swap out Leslie Manville (who was excellent), but Harriet Sansom Harris gave a scene-stealing 5 minute performance in “Phantom Thread.” Harris obviously knows how to chew the scenery (see her Tony winning/broadway performances, and TV work), but she completely stole her scenes from Daniel Day-Lewis in an utterly heartbreaking cameo.

    Carey Mulligan instead of Mary J Blige

    Michael Shannon instead of Richard Jenkins (Shannon is playing Shannon, but it’s still a better performance)

    Not 2017, but it’s the first thing I thought about when I saw the thread’s title, because it never gets old:
    Bryce Dallas Howard instead of Jessica Chastain (and her nomination for all her films that year)

    This year Carey Mulligan takes the cake.

    But one that absolutely breaks my heart will always be this one:

    They both should have been nominated. You cannot nominate one and leave the other one out. You just cannot.

    Michael Shannon > Richard Jenkins & Octavia Spencer

    Brooklynn Kimberly Prince & Bria Vinaite > Willem Dafoe

    Garrett Hedlund, Jason Mitchell, Carey Mulligan, Jonathan Banks, Jason Clarke > Mary J. Blige

    Have not seen Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville, Christopher Plummer or Denzel Washington.
