I’m not saying she is going to win, I’m not hating on her performance, I simply want to know what the majority thinks.
I’ve seen people say that they do think it would join the ranks of Gwyneth Paltrow and Sandra Bullock but some have said that her win would go down as memorable and that it is deserved.. So, what do you think?February 22, 2017 at 11:14 am #1202018600
Oh, it’s going to be memorable. And not in a good way.February 22, 2017 at 11:23 am #1202018612
Huppert winning will go down as one of the best wins of all time. #faithFebruary 22, 2017 at 11:27 am #1202018615
I don’t understand the meltdowns here if she wins. She was always La La Land’s go to for an acting win. Now if Gosling upsets Affleck and Washington the twitter sphere will drag the Academy to hell.
My preference is Huppert. A pleasant surprise would be Negga despite the non-black hate she’d get if she were able to pull that off.February 22, 2017 at 11:28 am #1202018617
absolutely notFebruary 22, 2017 at 11:30 am #1202018623
Did you mean worst Best Actress wins or worst Oscar wins in general? Worst Oscar win ever has to be Crash: Best Picture. Weakest win for Best Actress, as much as I like Sandra Bullock, the Blind Side didn’t feel like an Oscar movie to me. Michael Oher isn’t even a fan of it and it’s supposed to be his life story.February 22, 2017 at 11:30 am #1202018624
By people who truly care about movies, yes. By general audiences, no. Because general audiences do not give a crap about golden dildos and those few who do, will forget about winners the moment ceremony is over.February 22, 2017 at 11:45 am #1202018641

Weakest Actress, and again guys, this isn’t me hating on Emma or even LLL, I am genuinely interested in what people think! This forum isn’t to start an argument, just give your vote and give your reason if you so wish! 🙂February 22, 2017 at 11:51 am #1202018645
There’s been so many bad ones the past few years it’s hard to keep track. Alan Arkin, Sandra Bullock, Mark Rylance come to mindFebruary 22, 2017 at 11:58 am #1202018651
As I’ve said so many times before but have to reiterate or I’ll be called a hater, I enjoyed Emma Stone and La La Land, but really I cannot comprehend how people look at all the nominees (and maybe even the ones left out) and truly think that this is the best performance of the yearFebruary 22, 2017 at 12:03 pm #1202018657

I agree with you. I actually enjoyed Emma Stone in LLL, but compared to the other nominees and those who did not receive a nomination, I don’t think Stone’s performance came close to theirs. That said, if she wins, at least it was for a serviceable performance (for the most part as I thought she was blank in all the audition scenes and the “I ran” scene was her not even playing a character anymore) and a likable one unlike some other winners we’ve had.
I still think Bullock and Lawrence’s wins are much worse than a Stone win will be.February 22, 2017 at 12:07 pm #1202018660
Eh, not quite. I actually liked Stone in La La Land, she’s just so inferior to her competition. I’m tempted to place her on the same level as Grace Kelly in The Country Girl – also a decent, commendable performance that paled miserably with the leading ladies she faced.

Of Course! Gwyneth Paltrow 2.0February 22, 2017 at 12:26 pm #1202018684
No one, and I repeat NO ONE, can ever take that title from Gwyneth Paltrow. Not only was she bad, but she defeated CATE BLANCHETT’s brilliant work in Elizabeth. I mean at least Emma has a previous nomination for Birdman, Gwyneth doesn’t even have another nomination to back her win up.
And honestly, Emma wasn’t even all that bad, it’s just that she’ll be defeating Huppert, which is where the outrage mostly comes from. That’s also where the Witherspoon hate comes from – she wasn’t all that bad herself, but she defeated a much superior performance from Huffman in Transamerica. But even Reese has a nomination for Wild to back her win up.
So no, she can never be worse than Paltrow’s atrocious win.
