    I’m such a fan of Vera Farmiga’s career. She’s talented, beautiful and pretty underrated in Hollywood.

    I’m shocked to her without awards recognition. She’s outstanding in “Bates Motel” – in my opinion the strongest Drama Actress for two years. She was solid and extremely lovely in “Up in the Air” – yeah, she didn’t have any showy scenes ala Monique, but she was convincing as Alex and had a great chemistry with Clooney. I adored her in indie movies like “Higher Ground” (also directed by her), “Down to the Bone”, or “The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas” and in horror pieces like “Joshua” and “The Conjuring” (probably the best horror movie of the last few years) as well. In “Nothing But The Truth” she is simply just breathtaking!

    She should have won Best Actress for Down to the Bone. But thats the only nod I’d give her. I agree though that she is a strong actress.

    One word explains this underdog:

    MASTERPIECE.

    If she gets nominated for a Razzie, I will ruin the Razzies that year (I am also a member).

    She is to die for and I LOVE her in Bates Motel. Her non-win last year was a laughingstock in my company, have we predicted her number one SKY HIGH. 

    If she goes without single Emmy or Oscar, I would literally use her name when I act.

    I like Vera Farmiga a lot, and I do think she deserves more vehicles to star in. She’s a very strong actress and was just lovely in Higher Grounds and Up in the Air. I even like her in Bates Motel, a show that I don’t like at all.

    I´ll say three things:

    – Im so glad to see she finally got a leading role to chew on, which is Bates Motel, her strongest performance yet by far, and one that deserved the emmy last year over anyone.

    – She is so good that she has given to award worthy performances in horror movies (orphan, conjuring), which happes almost never.

    – She needs bigger roles in bigger movies a) to see more of her than we do, which is not a lot really (only downside to her BM gig), and b) because she needs more oscar nominations, hopefully in lead. She deserves to be a winner someday but need the roles…

    I think her lack of awards is because she does a lot of horror stuff.

    If Bates Motel wasn’t labeled so much as a horror show, she could have possibly won last year and be nominated this year

    Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.

    Yeah, she deserves more than what shes getting, last year she derserved to win for lead actress at the emmys for her episode submission and instead the voters went for the safe choice, Claire Danes. This year she definately deserved a nomination, when i saw the last episode of season 2 i thought she had it in the bag, but you know how these award shows are, they always go for the shows and performances in the big networks or cables like HBO, SHOWTIME, CBS, ABC etc, always leaving behind the good actors with the smaller shows and the smaller networks.

    I’ll mention The Departed. Her closing scene, where she MINOR SPOILER walks past Matt Damon without looking at him, reminded me so much of The Third Man (a masterpiece), and Alida Valli. Was that on purpose I wonder?

    I enjoyed her perf more than I did Anna Kendrick’s.

    She appears to be good in everything, nor does she limit herself to a genre or ‘type’. She’s at the certain “age”, like Damocles sword. She’s one actor I’d love to see win an Oscar.

    Loved her in The Departed, The Conjuring, Orphan, and Up in the Air. Other than that her film choices haven’t been too exciting in my opinion.

    I think she’s probably the most underrated actress working today. What I love about her is the fact that she takes on so many roles with high degrees of difficulty. Alex in Up in the Air was a very tricky tightrope to walk, and she was brilliant. I would have given her the Oscar with no second thoughts. And in lesser hands, Norma on Bates Motel would look like bad dinner theater, but she seemingly effortlessly brings all these layers to it and she makes the character’s contradictions make sense. It’s one of the Emmys’ great crimes this year that she wasn’t nominated–her work in both “Shadow of a Doubt” and “The Immutable Truth” was win-worthy.

    Fuhrman was the ultimate horror movie psycho.

    For me she was the best part of Up in the Air.

    They were both good but what Collet-Serra had Fuhrman do repulsed me. I’ve since tried to justify it to myself but I still find it disturbing, even next to Sarsgaard’s lazy, pathetic performance.

    ETA: Reminds me of Sacha Baron-Cohen’s Bruno, where he’s interviewing those parents asking them if they’re ok with this or that if their kids got the part.
