    I think you all know who my vote is for…

      

    Also, for those of you thinking of voting for that Babel bitch, think of how Catherine would feel!

    In 2006? Cate Blanchett. From these two? Rinko Kikuchi.

    You started an entire thread about a race from six years ago asking a hypothetical question about an Oscar nominee and a non-nominee?

    Completely crazy.

    I have been revisiting a few movies from 2006 and this race always frustrated me. I think it was really the first time a single performance dominated the awards season. Now, it’s more common place of course. 

    If I were to nominate 5 ladies from that year, they’d be:

    Catherine O’Hara
    Rinko Kikuchi
    Shareeka Epps
    Emma Thompson
    Cate Blanchett

    with Abigail Breslin as #6 and Jennifer Hudson as #7

    Hudson was good…yah…her singing was tremendous, but her non-singing scenes were god awful and truly amateur (not that I expected a non-actor to be all that good in such an important part, but…)

    If anything, she should have won a Grammy for Best Concert Performance (or whatever that category is…), not an Oscar. 

    I thought that if I were then asked to vote for a winner, it’d be between O’Hara (in a great comedic performance! Melissa McCarthy’s part in Bridesmaids didn’t have the same depths as O’Hara in this film) and Kikuchi (her mere presence and her very quiet performance is life-shattering). I’d vote for Kikuchi, I think..

    I’d vote for ANY of the other nominated supporting actresses (Barraza, Blanchett, Breslin, or Kikuchi) over the winner (Hudson).

    Not sure about O’Hara, but she is a wonderful comedienne (AFTER HOURS; BEETLEJUICE; etc.).

    Of the nominees, I’d go with Blanchett, just because she is so damn talented and deserves a handful of Oscars. However, Kikuchi was incredible in a difficult role, Barraza was heartbreaking, and Breslin was phenomenal in a wonderfully subversive comedy. Hudson sang one song well.

    Why is this even a thread? Absolutely ridiculous, where are the moderators?

    Well heck, I dunno. Rinko was unforgettable, and Catherine was fabulous in a difficult role.

    I’ll say Shareeka Epps.

    Yes, this is just distracting us from the only real business at hand, which is mandatory nonstop marveling over AVENGERS’ obscene grosses.

    I personally think it’s good to look back at old races in the off-season…makes you go back and revisit older films you haven’t seen in a while…

    Now here’s another one….

    Mickey Rourke (Sin City) vs. George Clooney (Syriana)

    Go!

    I like that this thread is here.  It’s a little out there, but it’s good to mix things up.  Plus looking back at old races is indeed fun.

    Of these two I’d probably vote for Kikuchi.

    Well, there’s certain people in the boards that will complain about every little thread. They’ll say that there’s already an existing thread from 8 or 9 months prior, or they’ll just want to rant about some dumb blockbuster…

    Then they create a thread and expect everyone to giddy on up to their rodeo…no thanks!

    Contrary to popular sentiment around here, I thoroughly enjoyed George in Syriana, a many-layered, mind-blowing film that, needs to be viewed more than once. Even then, I’m not entirely sure…..
    Mickey was on the comeback trail with Sin City and I enjoyed his vocal perf.
    I’ll go with George here, who deserved all the acolades he received for this.
