    Often on Nomination Day, there are inclusions that have us scratching their heads and tend to have more to do with recognizing the film rather than the performance or even the piece of filmmaking (The Revenant for Visual Effects? Over Ant-Man and even Jurassic World?!). What inclusions would you say are more about riding a film’s coattails?

    To me:

    Jacki Weaver, Silver Linings Playbook: I like Jacki Weaver. I like Silver Linings Playbook. But in SLP, Jacki Weaver is just…there. And they said Rachel McAdams had nothing to do in Spotlight. 

    Alan Arkin, Argo: One funny one-liner does not a performance make. John Goodman or Bryan Cranston could’ve used his spot.

    Dallas Buyers Club for Film Editing: Just..why? There were far more inventive choices that year.

    My first thought was Maggie Gyllenhaal. 

    “Into the West” is another.

    Into the west is a beautiful song. I would say a lot of nods for the Artist.

    90% of Amy Adams’s nominations.

    Jonah Hill – Wolf of Wall Street

    His performance is nomination worthy. Now his first nomination for Moneyball is the coattail offender.

    Candy Clark in American Graffiti

    Clark explains her nomination, “Universal Studios didn’t have much faith in the film. They thought it was only going to be a B-movie and go straight to drive-ins, so they didn’t put much effort into the Oscar race. I spent $1,700 on small quarter-page ads, in The Hollywood Reporter and Variety, and it paid off.”

    Both wrong.

    Rachel McAdams does nothing in Spotlight.

    Surprised no one’s mentioned Queen Latifah for “Chicago” yet. It was a wholly earned nomination in my book. “When You’re Good to Mama” is one of the best sequences performed and directed in the entire film (possibly second to “All That Jazz”).

    90% of 5 is 4,5. Which performance half-deserve it for you? 

    Jacki Weaver of “SLP” personifies a coattail nom.

    I think a performance can be deserving and still wouldn’t be nominated without the coattails. Like Fassbender in 12 Years a Slave or Tommy Lee Jones in Lincoln or Tom Hardy this year.

    Berenice Bejo, The Artist
    Kathleen Quinlan, Apollo 13
    Hugh Jackman, Les Miserables
    Can I say all four acting nominees from American Hustle? Maybe J-Law would have gotten in for doing the same thing in a non-major player movie, but I don’t really think those other performances would.

    Coattail wins: Judi Dench, Jennifer Connelly.

    Never said they were undeserving. Try again. So Amy Adams can’t personify as a coattail nominee because? Jacki Weaver wasn’t just a coattail nomination, she was a disgrace.
