    I hunted out the female performances that got Sag+Bafta noms but missed out on an Oscar nod.
    If you could make one of them an Oscar-nominated one, which would you choose? 

    I’m going with Zhang Ziyi, so East Asians would have at least one representative in the lead category in the history of AMPAS.

    Tilda Swinton with Sally Field not far behind. Did Robin Wright not hit the precursors? She should’ve been nominated.

    I don’t understand the hype around Oprah Winfrey and The Butler as a whole. It felt like a really bad Lifetime movie with shitty acting to me. I didn’t think Oprah did anything noteworthy in it. I went with Marion Cotillard, but Tilda Swinton and Emma Thompson were also very deserving.

    Why isn’t Sally Hawkins here for Happy Go Lucky? She might not have gotten SAG or BAFTA nominations, but this is very much a “precursor loaded actress”. 35 nominations/wins according to IMDB for the role. More than some fo the people on the list. Helen Mirren, for example, got 13 mentions for Hitchcock, probably didn’t win any of them. Hawkins won New York, L.A and National Society, plus the Globe. BAFTA and SAG nominations don’t make somebody “precursor loaded”.

    I voted for Swinton. Diaz would also be worthy of a vote.

    Tilda Swinton and Sally Hawkins (‘Happy-Go-Lucky’) are the big ones.

    Hawkins won NY, LA, NSFC, and the GG for comedy. No SAG or BAFTA nod, though. 🙁

    Like Emma Thompson should have won for that performance. Freaking Cate had to release Blue Jasmine that year.

    Thompson made more sense becoming a five-time nominee for acting than Amy Adams.

    Oprah should have taken Squibb’s spot. But since Academy history tells me two black women in the same category cancels each other out — it favored Lupita for O not to be there.

    Tilda Swinton got took by Rooney Mara. And Pam Grier didn’t have a chance. Jackie Brown received an industry cold shoulder. The male voter bloc went with Julie Christie instead for a horrible movie. Her performance was fine but it had no right to take Pam’s spot.

    Emma Thompson instead of Judi Dench (I think she was great in Philomena, but I loved Thompson’s performance in Saving Mr Banks).
    Tilda Swinton should have been nominated instead of Glenn Close in Albert Nobbs.
    Rachel Weisz for The Deep Blue Sea (I never understood why Naomi Watts was nominated for The Impossible, Marion Cotillar, Helen Mirren and Rachel Weisz were much better)
    And Helena Bonham Carter for Sweeney Todd instead of Laura Linney (her nomination for The Savages was pretty undeserved)

    Marion Cotillard instead of Emmanuelle Riva. (Sorry, I just do not get the love for that performance.)

    If Cotillard took Jennifer Lawrence’s spot (which should’ve happened), Jessica Chastain would’ve won. Emma Thompson should’ve taken Amy Adams’ spot. Tilda should’ve taken Glenn Close’s undeserved spot.
