    About this poll. This time it was even harder to choose the combos, but once again I was trying to follow the consensus.

    I think people are fine by winners like Monique, Arquette, Swinton or Hathaway no matter that they have preferred others in those particular years.

    I know I’m going to be called out for putting Lawrence in over anyone in that category, but it was Lupita’s and Jennifer’s fight, the rest had zero chance and no one was really rooting for them, but the two ladies. It was all about them in my opinion. My personal opinion is that NEITHER Lawrence or Lupita deserved to be nominated, let alone win an Oscar for their overrated performances.

    I think people loved Bejo as well, but she was a fraud so I doubt anyone has rooted on her to win.

    2010 was particulary hard to decide. Amy Adams was amazing, but no one really likes her here, so I went with HBC the possible runner-up and the fan favorite Weaver.

    Discuss.

    My ranking for the winners
    1. Anne Hathaway
    2. Cate Blanchett
    3. Penelope Cruz
    4. Tilda Swinton
    5. Monique
    6. Renée Zellweger

    7. Melissa Leo
    8. Rachel Weisz
    9. Patricia Arquette
    10. Catherine Zeta-Jones
    11. Octavia Spencer

    12. Lupita Nyong’o
    13. Jennifer Hudson

    N/S Marcia Gay Harden.

    3rd – Melissa McCarthy’s losing is just very annoying as she gave an amazingly funny performance and she should have won over Spencer. Both McCarthy and Byrne should have been nominated in “Bridesmaids”.

    2nd – Julianne Moore’s in “The Hours” performance is one of my favs ever, so seeing ‘singing-dancing-lookinghot’ CZJ winning over her is very sad.

    1st – But the fact that people like Jennifer Hudson has an Oscar is the most annoying thing ever. Rinko Kikuchi, Adriana Barraza, Cate Blanchett (fraud, though) and hell even Abigail Breslin have deserved it better. So my vote goes to the worst ever winner in this category, Jennifer Hudson.

    As much as I love Moore in Far From Heaven, I dislike her actor-y work in The Hours. But Meryl was snubbed big time in Adaptation. And ironically, I hated her in The Hours.

    Chastain and McCarthy losing to Octavia Spencer. Just…why? Other than crapping in a pie and giving sassy eye rolls, what did Spencer do to warrant a win?

    I actually have an issue with Blanchett’s win. It was a make-up win and Madsen gave a performance I love. I doubt she’ll ever be that good again.

    Marcia Gay Harden was borderline lead, yes, but she was a performance too good for voters to ignore. Probably the best of the last 15 years. Kate Hudson wasn’t even close. 

    Amy Adams was my favorite in 2012.
    She was my favorite in 2005 as well.
    Zellweger, Nyong’o and Hathaway are the worst winners. I don’t know why Hathaway won for this. I didn’t know in 2012, I still don’t. She was laughably bad and it’s not even her fault. Blame it on Hooper!!!!

    My picks

    2000 – Marcia Gay Harden (runner-up: McDormand; should have been nominated – Elaine May)

    2001 – Kate Winslet — this is my favorite performance by Winslet ever! She should have won for this and this should have been her sole Oscar win until now (runner-up: Mirren)

    2002 – Meryl by a mile, the performance is a gem (where is Patricia Clarkson?!)

    2003 – Shohrerh Aghdashloo

    2004 – Virginia Madsen (runner-up: Blanchett)

    2005 – Amy Adams (runner-up: Willams, but BELLO was the best, the best!)

    2006 – Hudson’s win was a joke, Blanchett was LEAD, so Kikuchi

    2007 – Swinton (yay, we agree, Oscar!)

    2008 – Tomei, but I’m fine with Cruz

    2009 – Mo’Nique

    2010 – JACKI WEAVER! But where was OLIVIA WILLIAMS?

    2011 – McTeer, but I’m fine with Chastain

    2012 – Amy Adams!

    2013 – Sally Hawkins

    2014 – Arquette was ok

    I think we disagree a lot. I think Hathaway is one of the best winners, and I loved Blanchett’s win as well. Madsen did nothing Oscar-worthy in “Sideways” and I would have nominated Sandra Oh instead.

    I think without any proper precursors, Marcia’s win was dead-weak. Hudsom came very close, but even Walters.

    🙂 Zooey, we never agree lol but I like your spirit.

    I agree with all the Academy’s picks except 2010. Amy Adams stole the show in The Fighter. I barely remember Melissa Leo’s role.

    Amy Ryan losing to Tilda Swinton. I’m happy Swinton has an Oscar but for Michael Clayton? Why?

    If I would have a vote and I would have to decide among the actual Oscar nominees…

    2014 – Keira Knightley in The Imitation Game
    2013 – Sally Hawkins in Blue Jasmine
    2012 – Anne Hathaway in Les Misérables
    2011 – Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids
    2010 – Amy Adams in The Fighter
    2009 – Monique in Precious
    2008 – Penélope Cruz in Vicky Cristina Barcelona
    2007 – Tilda Swinton in Michael Clayton
    2006 – Rinko Kikuchi in Babel
    2005 – Amy Adams in Junebug (Williams is incredibly close)
    2004 – Cate Blanchett in The Aviator
    2003 – Renée Zellweger in Cold Mountain (I like how over the top she was)
    2002 – Julianne Moore in The Hours
    2001 – Maggie Smith in Gosford Park
    2000 – Julie Walters in Billy Eliott (Judi Dench is close)

    I love all Bejo, Roberts and Blanchett but I don’t support frauds.

    I think Tilda was amazing in “Michael Clayton”. I like Ruby Dee in “American Gangster”, but not for an Oscar win. I don’t like Blanchett in “I’m Not There” or Ryan in “Gone Baby Gone”. I think Saoirse is amazing in “Atonement”, but Tilda is a bit better so she’s easily my choice.

    And let’s be honest, here. All she did was TALK about shitting in a pie. She didn’t even shit on screen!

    Well, McCarthy and Chastain were funnier for sure, and we all know why Spencer got this over them. It’s all about the politics. You play a maid, you play a slave, you win the Oscar. Easy. And it’s so disrespectful for black actors. And for minorities overall. They deserve better roles.

    I don’t “really” hate her Oscar, because at least she’s doing better work than ever on screen. Aside of her pretty mediocore job in “Fruitvale Station” (for which Melonie Diaz is among my personal nominees that year) I enjoyed her in most films. “Snowpiercer” the most. And I like her personality, it’s just she wasn’t the best that particular year.
