Similar to Box Office Grosses that Adjusts According to INFLATION to make it somewhat comparable.
Wondering if there has been an exercise or attempts to Weigh, Index, Assign a Value or Score to some of the Oscar Wins.
We have Top & Worst Lists, but assign a Value, Score or Index to each entry or win to determine the relative differences.
Like a Metacritic Score, how would you weigh, compare and assign a value to your Favorite & Worst Oscar Wins.
Best Picture: Casablanca = 99; Out of Africa = 85; Crash = 45; etc …
Best Actress: Meryl Streep in Sophie’s Choice = 99; Charlize Theron in Monster = 90; Gwyneth Paltrow in Shakespeare in Love = 21; etc …
THEN, Provide Perspectives and Explain Your Scores …
COMPARE & CONTRAST !!!
Are you talking about just one performance or film being better then another or is it the Oscar wins themselves (Reasons why the won, their careers after, ect) that we’re supposed to rank?
^^^ Any set of Category Wins that you want to highlight & emphasize. It could be Acting, Crafts-Techs, any of the established Oscar categories. Need not be exhaustive list but could be a partial or at least 2 entries per category win.
Do not rank 1, 2, 3 as we have those in the past BUT Assign a Score or Value or Index to determine the relative differences, i.e. how near & far they are from each other.

To be Expanded ….
For Best Actress, from what I’ve seen, my initial Scores as follows:
Meryl Streep in Sophie’s Choice = 99
Charlize Theron in Monster = 93
Marion Cotillard in La Vie en Rose = 92
Meryl Streep in The Iron Lady = 91
Sissy Spacek in Coal Miner’s Daughter = 86
Sally Field in Norma Rae = 81
Hilary Swank in Million Dollar Baby = 75
Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich = 63
Nicole Kidman in The Hours = 60
Sandra Bullock in The Blind Side = 30
Gwyneth Paltrow in Shakespeare in Love = 21
Jennifer Lawrence in Silver Linings Playbook = 20
Only 99 for Streep in Sophie’s Choice allowing for 1% unseen flaw or weakness.
Think Paltrow & Lawrence were the worst winners from films I’ve seen. It was a supporting role for Lawrence. Giving 1% advantage to Paltrow for accent & period piece.
