    And I’m not surprised to see some people saying she’s overrated, after all, they do it with all the young actresses.
    Actresses like Emma, Saoirse, Jennifer, Brie, Alicia, Lupita etc are always underrated actresses who deserve more opportunities and recognition, but only they start to win prizes, they become overrated.

    The Kate Winslet comparison is laughable because Ronan is a far better actor. Lady Bird is quite overrated but that’s Greta Gerwig’s fault, her performances in Atonement and Brooklyn tower every single thing Kate Winslet has done.

    Highly questionable, since her work in Atonement and Brooklyn aren’t quite approaching (or at least equal to) the heights of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind as of yet. She still deserved an Oscar for Brooklyn though.

    (Winslet is highly overhyped imo).

    Kate Winslet is a GREAT actress. She is in no way overrated. Ronan is great though

    Which is a shame, because her track record since her win for “The Reader” has been abysmal. Out of the 13 films she’s made since her win, only three of them have “Fresh” scores on Rotten Tomatoes.

    Hopefully she’ll have a comeback with the Lee Miller biopic next year. If that doesn’t happen, we may well see her brushed aside by the likes of Saoirse, Pike, and Robbie.

    Should’ve won for Brooklyn – honestly, though, not sure a victory is guaranteed for her in the future.

    THE OSCAR 100 (#60-56): Brenda Blethyn, Olivia de Havilland, Dorothy Malone, Geraldine Page and Thelma Ritter

    Ronan happened to be in one of the most over-rated films of last year. Its gonna take some time to shake that tag off.

    But she was denied an Oscar for Brooklyn; like what many posters have said above. That performance is still her best to date and she will need to top that performance to win the Oscar.

    Also i think her career awards run can go one of 2 ways. Either the Winslet way or the Cate Blanchett way. I for one hope it goes like Cate.

    What do you mean? Cate and Kate have the same amount of nominations…..Cate has one more Oscar. But Kate has the Emmy as well. Cate doesn’t.

    And I’m pretty certain Kate Winslet will win another Oscar. She was THIS close just a couple of years ago to winning. In due time..

    As I said in an earlier post……she would have been the probable winner a just couple of years ago had Vikander been in the correct category…and we would even be having this discussion

    Also Kate will always be popular if only because she was the lead in one of the biggest movie phenomenons of all time…..on to of being one of the most respected actresses in the game. Every actor and actor has a flop or two….or five….
    But her performances never really come into question…

    what i meant was that Cate has 2 oscars already and is destined to win another one. It’s just a matter of how many years later.

    Kate on the other hand has won 1 and has been staring in oscar baits all the time hoping for her 2nd. And industry wise they will not be compelled to give her another no matter how thirsty she is unless its godlike level of undeniable performance but then again they might just overlook her.

    Probably 7-10 career nods. They’ll lose interest at some point. This happens to everybody, well, except for La Streep and Hepburn.

    Audiences and critics like Lady Bird. It was the award bodies who were hesitant to give it anything.

    Ronan’s not a Blanchett. Her acting style is more grounded to be compared with hers and her popularity most closely mirrors Winslet’s at the moment. And that’s because they were starlets first. Blanchett in her 20s came across as a grownup.

    Okay. What I’m saying is Kate is beloved enough in the industry to certainly win another one down the line. More than likely she will. And this is my unbiased opinion because I love both.

    Atonement is so underrated on this site. She would’ve been a worthy winner in 2007 too, but then again that whole lineup was good.

    Let’s just hope she gets oscar nom number 4 this year or next otherwise J-law will still be the youngest person ever to get 4 oscar noms
