    Results from previous polls:

    #1: Bradley Cooper = 30% Vs. Leonardo DiCaprio = 70%
    #2: Amy Adams = 65% Vs. Jessica Chastain = 35%
    #3: Annette Bening = 44% Vs. Glenn Close = 56%
    #4: Gary Oldman = 90% Vs. Alan Rickman = 10%
    #5: Michael Fassbender = 42% Vs. Jake Gyllenhaal = 58%
    #6: Keira Knightley = 44% Vs. Carey Mulligan = 56%
    #7: Emma Stone = 79% Vs. Shailene Woodley = 21%

     Poll Eight: Rooney Mara Vs. Saoirse Ronan

    Both actresses  have one previous nomination. Mara as Leading Actress for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and Ronan as Supporting Actress for Atonement. 

    Mara is receiving rave reviews for Carol, and may also have Weightless, directed by Terrence Malick which could be released by the end of the year.
    Ronan is also receiving raves for her role in Brooklyn.

    Both are early potential Oscar hopefuls for this year.  

    But who do you think is more likely to win an Oscar first?

    Rooney Mara. She has worked with Steven Sodenbergh, David Fincher, Terrence Malick, Todd Haynes, Spike Jonze… She’s older, more mature as an actress and in my opinion has more range. Saoirse Ronan however is wonderful and could very well win the Oscar this year by default while Rooney Mara has a tougher mountain to climb in the Supporting category.

    Ronan. 

    Mara is an ice queen.

    Rooney Mara. Ronan has all the time in the world. Mara does to, but she has more years of experience.

    Well, Saoirse Ronan is a better actress and more liked by the Academy. She earned her first nomination for “Atonement” easily, and was a strong contender for “The Lovely Bones” as well. Rooney Mara was a filler nominee for “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” and never came close to be nominated again. She could be pretty much snubbed next year if they cannot push her in supporting ala Julianne Moore in “The Kids Are All Right”.

    So Ronan. By far. Let’s hope she can win for “Brooklyn”.

    I know I want Ronan to win first but Mara has Carol this year and could easily win through category fraud.

    Mara. She pushed past other more presumed front runners like Charlize Theron in ‘Young Adult’ and Tilda Swinton in ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin’ to earn her first Oscar nomination for ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’, even with the stigma that it was a remake separated by just a year’s time with some feeling that Noomi Rapace’s take was the definitive one, therefore I don’t consider her at all a filler nominee, but one that obviously had some passionate votes. She’s continued to do strong work in film’s like ‘Side Effects’, ‘Ain’t Them Bodies Saints’, and ‘Her’, and now she has stellar career best reviews for ‘Carol’.

    I think Ronan is great too, and she’s had some terrific post-Oscar nom perfs under her belt as well such as ‘The Lovely Bones’, ‘The Way Back’, and ‘Hanna’, and now some career best notices for ‘Brooklyn’.

    Both could potentially win this year if Mara is placed in Supporting.

    Both of these women are terrific.

     Mara. She’s a chameleon.

    This pairing is a little off, right? Anyway I’d go with Mara cause she has the more solid filmography so far, but I think Ronan is as good if not better actress when in the proper hands.

    A chameleon based on what? Dragon Tattoo is the most radical thing she’s done.

    Exactly. Not to be a bitch about it, but I feel the same I felt in the Knightley vs. Mulligan poll. GD is voting on their preferences instead of being objective.

    As much as Keira Knightley is more liked by the Academy (with her two nominations and an another big contender performance for “Atonement”), Saoirse Ronan is also stronger in records with “Atonement” and her almost-nomination in “The Lovely Bones” (incredibly average year, she came either 6th or 7th with Emily Blunt in “The Young Victoria”).

    Or it’s all about the “Carol” reviews? I have no idea, but it’s weird that 2011-filler-nominee is stronger according to the community.

    I used to think Mara was good at playing depressed and hard-to-scare teens .  Her work in Tattoo, surprised me. She was several personaes to me.

    Her work in Side Effects was a throw back to her earlier days imo, but she’s terrific in Ain’t Them Bodies Saints and certainly equal to Casey Affleck and even Ben Foster.

    I just saw “Trash” in January and Mara, is another character all together.

    I’m looking forward to seeing almost every actor cast in Carol. Certainly not because of the reactions it’s receiving, but because as I’ve said, that cast. I expect Mara, Blanchett, Paulson and Chandler to slay me.

    Good enough fer ya Peaceful? Hope so.

    No shit Sherlock. Is it any other way?

    Please teach me how this is done; the ‘objective’ part I mean. lol.
