    I was just rewatching Easy A and I had forgotten how great Emma Stone was in that movie. She was hilarious and snarky yet there were certain scenes where she could break your heart with a sentence or even a single look. But of course it was too comedic and in a teen movie to get any serious consideration, so what are some comedic performance you think deserved a nomination? By the way I know this is a really common question I probably just wanted to get out my Emma Stone love somewhere.

    PS I also think Patricia Clarkson was great and couldve been considered for supporting actress

    Chris Tucker in Money Talks. He steals the spotlight in ever scene no matter who is in it with him. He is my favorite comedian when it comes to film.

    Kathy Najimy — Sister Act
    Bette Midler — Hocus Pocus
    Regina Hall — Scary Movie
    Paul Giamatti — Sideways
    Amy Adams — Enchanted
    Ellen Degeneres — Finding Nemo
    Jonah Hill — Superbad
    Leslie Mann — Knocked Up
    Martin Short — Clifford
    Owen Wilson — Midnight in Paris
    Anna Faris — Everything (I really see her winning an Oscar one day for a Woody Allen-type comedy)
    Lacey Chabert — Mean Girls (everyone on these boards always talks about Rachel McAdams and/or Lindsey Lohan, but imo Lacey Chabert is, by far, the best in an absolutely GENIUS movie)
