    I think she was much better than Lupita. But so does everyone else (including the fantastic Alfre Woodard) so it’s not a big deal. I wouldn’t personally nominate her for the role, but its just unfair to see that a less-worthy performance took it all.

    I loved her performance and if she maybe had a scene or more two she might have got in. She tied for my favorite Supporting Actress performance with Lupita last year

    I thought she was great, but I wish she got more screentime. I also thought she was a lot better than Lupita, she just didn’t have the big scene that Lupita did.

    I think that she was in tough as the lesser of the two villains, with Fassbender totally upstaging her, perhaps unfairly. The nominations reflect the protagonist, and then someone for and against him. I wouldn’t have picked her over Lupita, but she was also deserving.

    She was awesome.

    And I disagree that she “needed more scenes”. Screentime was just right for a part that small. Regardless, I would’ve definitely nominated her last year. But the Oscar should’ve gone to Sally Hawkins really.

    She was good. I also really liked Adepero Oduye. Those two were my favorite supporting actresses from the film.

    A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.

    Better than Nyongo, but that might be my biased opinion.

    The only reason I don´t argue that she deserved a nomination is her minimal screentime, but how brilliantly used. Only she could´ve made this character so powerfull with so little.

    I thought Lupita Nyong’o was extraordinary, but I thought several women from the film deserved Supporting Actress consideration: Sarah Paulson, yes, but also Adepero Oduye as another anguished slave character earlier in the film.

    Paulson’s biggest problem was screentime. The nature of her character and her prominence in the film gave her limited impact in the awards season. I also think Alfre Woodard was superb in her one scene. No less worthy of note, I don’t think, but Nyong’o just got more story and emotion to play.

    Not my favorite. I’m not convinced that she did much more than the material offered her, and she seemed weirdly out of place in the period.

    Oh, dear. I thought all the performances in 12 Years were awful, OTT caricatures except for Lupita. I loved Lupita. And Chiwetel was so badly overshadowed by all the hammy acting going on. Cumberbatch was terrible. I suppose I am in the minority here! I thought the unsubtle performances in 12 Years brought it down considerably.

    If you want a great, subtle Paulson performance, she was lovely in Mud playing the timid, gentle mother of Tye Sheridan, trying to assert her independence.

    I thought she was fantastic, along with Nyong’o, and would’ve toyed with nominating her but it was such a strong year for Supporting Actresses in my opinion that she would’ve missed my personal ballot. Any other year, Paulson probably would’ve gotten in, imo.

    If an actor is good enough they will resonate regardless of their
    screentime. In short, Sarah was ERRTHANG and more! 12YAS should’ve garnered two supporting actress nominations.

    She was my favorite performance of the film. Easily would picked her over Lupita for the nomination.
