    Hello, Derbyites, I decided to create my own poll series, like what others are doing. Their is often talk about the right actors winning for the wrong movies, as well as those who have multiple critically acclaimed performances the same year. This poll series is geared towards the latter. For the first one, I chose Anne Hathaway. Do you folks think she was more worthy for her feisty Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises or did she rightfully win for her heart-wrenching rendition of Fantine in Les Miserables?

    You guys have 18 days to vote. 

    P.S.: I’m open to suggestions for the next poll.

    Both were great performances but her work in Les Miserables in incredible. Screentime in the supporting categories doesn’t matter to me, the impact does. I saw Les Mis in theaters 3 times and every time I saw I Dreamed A Dream I was moved. She so deserved this Oscar. But she was great as Catwoman too.

    Suggestions:

    Julianne Moore “Maps to the Stars” vs “Still Alice”
    Marion Cotillard “Two Days One Night” vs “The Immigrant”
    Amy Adams “American Hustle” vs “Her”
    Keira Knightley “The Imitation Game” vs “Begin Again”
    Jennifer Lawrence “Silver Linings Playbook” vs “The Hunger Games”
    Helena Bonham Carter “The King’s Speech” vs “Harry Potter and the Deatly Hallows Part 1”
    Bradley Cooper “American Sniper” vs “Guardians of the Galaxy”
    Edward Norton “Birdman” vs “The Grand Budapest Hotel”
    Woody Harrelson “The Messenger” vs “Zombieland”
    Christopher Plummer “The Last Station” vs “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”
    John C. Reilly “Chicago” vs “The Good Girl”
    Jim Broadbant “Iris” vs “Moulin Rouge!”
    Tom Cruise “Magnolia” vs “Eyes Wide Shut”
    Geoffrey Rush “Shakespeare in Love” vs “Elizabeth”
    Nick Nolte “The Prince of Tides” vs “Cape Fear”
    Brad Pitt “Moneyball” vs “The Tree of Life”
    Jessica Chastain “The Help” vs “The Tree of Life” 
     Emma Stone “Birdman” vs “Magic in the Moonlight”

    Oh, you can do a multiple choice poll with Chastain, each year, lol.

    Hathaway is the Supporting Actress of 2012 for both performances. No doubt about that. I prefered “Les Misérables” by 1%.

    I hate everything about ‘Les Mis’ and am indifferent towards everything in ‘Rises’. So, ‘Dark Knight’ but feline sized hair.

    Hathaway was my winner that year for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’, so I’m going with that. She didn’t try to emulate a past incarnation of Catwoman/Selina Kyle, and she exceeded expectations IMHO. In ‘Les Mis’, she is good, she sings quite well, but it’s SO ham-fisted, I could never get fully on board. In ‘TDKR’ she gets to be smart, sexy, funny, strong, and she steals the movie with her terrific line readings. Oscar clip moment(s): either the interrogation scene after she has lead Batman to Bane, and Gordon-Levitt’s detective asks her if Batman is still alive, and she chillingly responds, “I’m not sure”, or the scene in the bar where she takes out all of the thugs and acts hysterical when the police arrive, only to slink out after she fools them into thinking she’s an innocent bystander.

    I think the second, the bar faking, would have been a delightful oscar clip moment. 

    Of course I went with The Dark Knight Rises
